Detroit-Cleveland: Cavs Sweep Pistons, the Mission Continues

Jabber HeadSenior Analyst IApril 27, 2009

The Cleveland Cavaliers completed the sweep of the Detroit Pistons 99-78 on Sunday afternoon in the Motor City.

Cleveland was led by LeBron James who scored 36 points and snagged 13 rebounds.

The Pistons had been near the top of the Eastern Conference, and made it to the conference finals the past six seasons, including winning the NBA title in 2004.

The early season trade of Chauncey Billups left a void too big to fill, and the Iverson deal never panned out.

Who’s next for the Cavs? Either Atlanta or Miami, neither of which instills any fear in Cleveland.

While the other teams in the East battle for their playoff lives, the Cavs will be resting and waiting at home for their next victim.

With home court advantage throughout, Cleveland may not lose a game until the NBA Finals.
