LebRon James, Cleveland Cavaliers enters 2015 NBA Finals after sweeping Hawks (+Video Highlights)

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the top-seeded Atlanta Hawks in the Game 4 of the 2015 NBA Eastern Conference Finals to secure a ticket to the 2015 NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers sweep the series, 4-0, and earned their second trip to the finals, where they will face either Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets.

LebRon James had proven his worth again as one of the most talented player in NBA history after leading the Cavaliers on their way back to Finals for the first time since 2007.

It will be the fifth consecutive season for James (and James Jones) to enter the Finals, who returned to Cleveland after four years in Miami to try and end this city's championship drought dating to 1964.

According to NBA, James finishes with averages of 30.3 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 9.3 assists in the Eastern Conference Finals.

In game 4 against Hawks, LebRon led the Cavs with 23 points (10-of-20 FG), nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Kyrie Irving returned after missing two games due to left knee tendinitis finished the game with 16 points (6-of-11 FG) and five assists in just 22 minutes.

J.R. Smith added 18 points and Tristan Thompson had 16 points and 11 rebounds.

The Hawks,a team that won 60 games during the regular season and made the conference finals for the first time since 1970, were no match for the Cavaliers and had no answer for James. They were led by Jeff Teague, who scored 17 points (8-of-13 FG), dished out one assist, and grabbed 1 rebound. Paul Milsap added 16 points while Al Horford, after his controversial Game 3 ejection, made 1-of-6 attempts for just two points in 29 minutes.
