Cleveland Cavaliers set up their third straight NBA Finals appearance against Golden State Warriors with a dominant 135-102 win over Boston Celtics.
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for 79 points at Boston’s TD Gardens to claim the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals 4-1.
James, 32, surpassed Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan as the all-time leading scorer in the play-offs.
The Warriors swept San Antonio Spurs 4-0 in the Western Conference finals.
They were crowned NBA champions in 2015 but were defeated last year as Cleveland’s 52-year wait for a major sporting title came to an end.
Game one of the NBA Finals takes place at the Warriors’ Oracle Arena in Oakland on Thursday, 1 June.
