For LeBron James, it’s six straight trips to the NBA Finals.
Maybe this one will end Cleveland’s long wait for a championship.
James scored 33 points, Kevin Love had 20 points and 12 rebounds, and the Cavaliers advanced to their second straight finals by beating the Toronto Raptors 113-87 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Friday night.
James played in four straight finals with Miami before returning to Cleveland. He will be the eighth player in NBA history to appear in six consecutive finals and the first who didn’t play for the Boston Celtics.
