The Cavs finish off their blowout win over the Celtics and advance to the NBA Finals, where they'll face the Warriors for the third straight year. It's the first time in NBA history that the same teams have met in the Finals in three consecutive seasons.

Not much of the crowd has stuck around to see the end of this blowout, as the Cavaliers prepare to make their third consecutive trip to the Finals.

When the Cavs get within a game of the Finals, they don't mess around. In 2007, they won Game 6 against the Pistons by 16. In 2015, they finished off a sweep of the Hawks with a 30-point win. Last year they eliminated the Raptors with a 26-point victory. Now they're beating the Celtics by 35 with a quarter to play in Boston. Cavaliers-Warriors III is all but set.

This will go down as the game LeBron broke MJ's playoff scoring record. To me it's when J.R. Smith licked beer off his arm.

With a 3-pointer in the third quarter LeBron James passed Michael Jordan for the most career points scored in the postseason. James now has 5,989 points in 212 career playoff games. Jordan finished his career with 5,987 in 179 games.
