The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Boston Celtics 135-102 on the road to close out the series. The Cavaliers were unstoppable on Thursday night, as they set some franchise scoring records, but LeBron James was the man of the night with one special accomplishment of his own.

James becomes an all-time playoff scoring leader

What a night for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. They started the game very strong, as they outscored the Celtics 43-27 in the first quarter. Those 43 points are the new Cleveland franchise record for most points scored in any quarter during a playoff game.

Also, they scored a big 75 points in the first half, as they set another franchise record for most points in the first half of a playoff game. The Cavaliers shot an amazing 60 percent in the first half, as they went on a halftime break with an 18 point lead.

LeBron James needed 28 points to pass Michael Jordan on the all-time playoff scoring list. He did it in the third quarter with 2:40 left on the clock with a three-point shot. LeBron finished the game with 35 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals while shooting 13 of 18 from the field and four of seven from the outside.

James has a better three-point shooting percentage then Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson in this postseason, as he is shooting 42 percent from behind the arc.

Kyrie Irving added 24 points and seven assists for the Cavaliers, as he shot nine of 15 from the field and four of eight from the outside in 31 minutes on the floor.

Unlike game four, the Cavs bench made a big difference in this game, as they combined for 49 points. Deron Williams scored 14 points in 17 minutes off the bench, while shooting five of six from the field and two of three from downtown. All of those points came during the first half.

Brad Stevens can be proud

The Boston Celtics finished the season in front of their home crowd, without their best player Isaiah Thomas. They avoided a sweep in this series, which is a huge accomplishment for this young team.

Avery Bradley did what he could for the Celtics, as he scored 23 points in 31 minutes on the floor, while shooting 10 of 20 from the field. Jae Crowder, Terry Rozier and Gerald Green were the only other players for the home team that scored in double-digits.

The first game of the NBA finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors is on the schedule for Thursday, at 9:00 pm, as the series will begin at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.
