LeBron's first triple-double gets Cavs 50th win

WOIO, Cleveland - The Cavaliers pretty much wrapped up the 2-seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs hunt as they beat the Bulls 99-94.  The victory is the team's 18th straight at the Q, where they will likely have homecourt advantage throughout the first two playoff series.

LeBron James netted his first triple-double of the season in the victory, finishing with 20 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.  It's his first triple-double with the Cavs since May 13th 2010. 

The basket was bigger than ever for the Cavs, who sank 16 3-pointers, including Kyrie Irving's first quarter buzzer-beater and then a half-court heave to avoid a 24-second shot clock violation.  J.R. Smith also had the hot hand as he connected on 8 threes, including a first half buzzer beater from almost the midcourt stands.  

The Cavs are now four  full games up on the Bulls for the two-seed with just five games left to play.
