Cleveland Cavaliers Eastern Conference Finals tickets go on sale Tuesday

The Raptors were swept 4-0 by the Cavaliers despite starting the National Basketball Association playoffs as the number one seed in the East. They'll try to make it 10 straight by riding the momentum from James' buzzer-beater in Game 3 into the closeout opportunity. For example, when the Raptors needed him most, DeMar DeRozan failed to step up, scoring just 21 points total in Games 3 and 4.

"It's life", said the Raptors guard. We couldn't get it done.

Fellow all-star Kyle Lowry offered little from the podium, a baseball cap jammed low over his eyes as DeRozan fielded questions. He finished with 13 points on five-of-11 shooting. "That's insane. I mean, to change a team who they said played iso basketball, to being top (five), I guess, in offence and defence this year, the second-best record in the NBA - like, I don't believe that one bit", Lue said.

"We had a lot of challenges, but we had a great game plan", James said.

Once the sweeping was done, LeBron James peeled off his jersey and headed toward the locker room.

Tristan Thompson registered 14 points and 12 rebounds, while J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver scored 20 and 19 points respectively in Game One.

Jonas Valanciunas took advantage of the Cavaliers' willingness to surrender the paint to score 18 points in less than 16 minutes. Still, the Raptors were down a mere four points late in the first half, when Casey made the quizzical choice to sub in Lucas Nogueira, the offence-challenged Brazilian seven-footer who was making his first appearance of the series. According to DeRozan, there is a chance that the Raptors will never get this chance again.

"I was on the edge of my seat for that one", says Matt. The Cavaliers were racking up easy baskets on backcuts, open corner-3s, and LeBron post-ups.

Let's not forget, however, that neither the C's nor the Cavs have punched their tickets to the conference finals just yet. It's a highlight that has been replayed endlessly on sports TV ever since, along with pundits discussing how Cleveland owns Toronto in the playoffs.

With the Cavs sweeping the Raptors and advancing to the Conference Finals for the fourth consecutive season, Cavs.com dissects some Cavs' digits from their Second Round victory in this installment of, "By the Numbers" presented by FanDuel. They will face either Boston or Philadelphia.

Toronto, which compiled a record season to finish first in the East, has been unable to fire on all cylinders against the Cavaliers.

For the second game in a row, Casey changed his starting lineup.

All five starters were in double figures BY THE THIRD QUARTER.

But at this point, it probably doesn't matter to LeBron or his teammates.

An Ibaka three-pointer cut the lead to 49-45 only to have the Cavaliers grab the game by the scruff of its neck. That led to Cedi Osman replacing Hood in the rotation for Game 4, which would seem the reason for Hood's discontent.

Then it got ugly.
