Kyrie scores 28 as the Cavs sweep the Pacers

Coach Lue talks about Kyrie Irving's performance

CLEVELAND, OH (CNN) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have completed their four-game sweep of the Indiana Pacers. The Cavs won the game 106-102.

Kyrie Irving had 28 points in the game. Cavs completed a first round sweep for third straight year.

LeBron James led all scorers with 33 points. James also had 10 rebounds, 4 steals and 4 assists. Deron Williams was a perfect 4-4 from the field and had 14 points on the day.

Senior Sports Producer Chris Dellecese shared his thoughts on the game:

The good news: LeBron James (as usual) made the plays he needed to make down the stretch in game 4, as the Cavs swept the Pacers 4-0.

The bad news: Cleveland didn't really play great in any of the four games.

Sunday's final few minutes were a microcosm of the series: the Cavs coasted to to a healthy  lead, seemed to let up while blowing said lead, but it never really felt like Indiana had a chance of actually, ya know, winning the game.

Or the series.

The concern is that pattern won't last against a good team (which they may not see until the NBA Finals, unless Toronto suddenly turns it around).

Sunday's box score nuggets:

  • James & Kyrie Irving combined for 61, fairly normal
  • Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver had 5 each, not normal
  • Paul George shot 5-for-21.
  • No way the Pacers can survive that

One thing we can be sure of, whether it's Milwaukee or Toronto in Round 2: it's doubtful either coach will try guarding James 1-on-1 with a point guard, as Indiana's Nate McMillan foolishly tried with Jeff Teague.

After one series, it appears the Cavs have "flipped the switch," as they indicated they would.

But now they face (at least) a week off.

So none of this will mean much when Round 2 begins.
