The NBA regular season ends Wednesday, but LeBron James’ regular season seemingly finished when the third-quarter buzzer sounded on Monday. James checked out for good with the Cleveland Cavaliers up by 15 over the Atlanta Hawks.
He did plenty of damage in the 33 minutes he played prior to that, scoring 34 points on 13-for-16 shooting and adding six rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block to set the Cavs up for a comfortable 109-94 win that clinched their spot as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
