Playoffs? Believe it!

LeBron James saw the opportunity to send his Cavaliers to their first playoff appearance in eight years and didnít let anyone stand in his way. He was almost unstoppable, scoring 46 points on 16-23 from the field as the Cavs clinched a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs with their 107-94 home win over the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday night. Whatever Mike Brown said at halftime must have worked because the Cavs exploded in the third quarter, outscoring the Mavs 35-16. LeBron had a comical take on finally making it to the playoffs.

“I’ve always felt since I was drafted here that I was going to light it up like Vegas,” James said. “I said that on Day One once I got drafted. It’s been slow progress, but it takes a few years to put a building up in Vegas, too.”

Congrats Cavs! The playoffs have been long overdue and the team as well as the entire city deserves this.
