Toronto had entered the playoffs as the number one seed from the Eastern Conference, desperate to finally break the spell that James and the Cavaliers have held over them in repeated playoff series meetings. Boston is now up 3-1 over Philadelphia.
Their path to the East finals wasn't straight.
James had 29 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in the Game 4 clincher-another terrific stat line that we've become accustomed to seeing from the 14-time All-Star.
In Monday's closeout game, James had only two points in the first quarter, but Cleveland was still able to build a 30-26 lead heading into the second. And for once, James sounds like he is at least entertaining the possibility that the Cavs could in fact, maybe, be in the discussion for a championship."We're excited about being part of the Eastern Conference finals once again and having the opportunity to compete for a championship", James said.
Four players, led by DeRozan's 37, scored in double-figures for the Raps but they only made TWO threes out of 18 attempts in the game. Even when the Raptors tried to slow them down and foul them, Cleveland was still coming away with points.
After winning the series' first two games in Canada, the Cavs came home and won a brawl with the Raptors, who just can't beat James. "That's always been a real goal for us, that's the only things that matters".
After a franchise-record 59 wins, good for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, it was as tough a defeat as DeRozan has endured.

As the noise level in Quicken Loans Arena rose to jet-engine levels, the Cavs sprinted from the other end of the court and mobbed James.
Hill, one of four players acquired on February 8 at the trading deadline, was a catalyst for the Cavs in the Torontoseries. Exactly one year since they were last swept by James, he did it to them again.
"We're going to enjoy it a little bit ... enjoy the rest over the next couple of days", James said.
Big changes could be in the offing for Toronto as they look to find another way to get over their hump.
[Tyronn] Lue and James said they never saw the SNL skit, but clearly, confidence in Cavs camp is mighty high these days after things seemed pretty shaky less than two weeks ago when Cleveland trailed in 2-1.
Cleveland defeats Toronto 128-93, wins series 4-0. 'I've seen him shoot that shot, that game-winner, countless times when he's messing around in shootaround and practice.
Love said there was nothing magical about his turnaround. "He's super-athletic, super-strong. He can shoot the ball so I think those things are just going to continue to build".
