A wink, a song and a dance from LeBron as the Cavs tame Bulls


THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS advanced to the Eastern Conference NBA finals last night with a dominant 94 – 73 Game 6 win over the Chicago Bulls.

LeBron James didn’t set this decisive game on fire, he scored just 15 points on the night. But, even though injury limited the role played by Kyrie Irving, he didn’t need to.

This wink directed as Bulls legend Scottie Pippen was probably the highlight of James’ performance.

His team-mates stepped up to the mark to make the difference, though. Matthew Dellavedova scored 19, and Tristan Thompson chipped in with 17 rebounds and 13 points that included this falling-backwards alley-oop.

We’re glad King James saved his energy. Because he needed it for the flight back to Cleveland. After all, when you’ve won a place in your fifth consecutive conference final, it would be rude not to sing and dance about it.

Which leads us to the big question before either Atlanta or Washington join the Cavs in the Eastern final:
