Cavs Knock out Bulls. Get Ready for Celtics. LeBron Dealing with Sore Elbow. »

Apr 28, 2010 at 4:13 am | lebron-jamesnba-basketball

The Cavaliers are thinking more about the Boston Celtics than exorcising ghosts of playoffs past, but on Thursday night – for the first time in five postseason tries – the Cavaliers topped the Bulls to advance in the East. The Wine and Gold knew the series wouldn’t be easy, and it wasn’t. The feisty young Bulls trailed by a dozen in the second quarter and by nine with 3:29 to play, but continued to claw their way back. It wasn’t until LeBron James split a pair of free throws with 7.8 to play that the Cavaliers got enough breathing space. The King shot his last free throw of the evening left-handed, after aggravating the right elbow that he tweaked in Sunday’s win in Chicago. Coming off an amazing 37-point triple-double in Sunday’s Game 4 blowout, LeBron never fully got untracked on Tuesday night. James finished with 19 points – notching 16 in the second half – barely missing his second straight trifecta with 10 boards, 9 assists and a pair of blocked shots.
