CHICAGO (AP) — LeBron James struggled to score 15 points, Kyrie Irving limped off the court and the Cleveland Cavaliers still beat the Chicago Bulls 94-73 on Thursday night to clinch their Eastern Conference semifinal series in six games.

Matthew Dellavedova scored 19 points and Tristan Thompson added 13 points and 17 rebounds to help the Cavaliers advance to the conference final for the first time since 2009 even though their superstar played like a mere mortal and their All-Star point guard hobbled to the locker room in the first half.

Despite all that, Cleveland is right where it expected to be after James decided to come home from Miami and return to his first team. The Cavaliers didn't expect to get there like this, though — with Kevin Love suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in the opening round and Irving trying to gut through problems with both legs.

      You forgot? Let me remind you. That was when Jordan hit a jumper from the free throw line to beat the Cavs and break the city of Cleveland’s heart in the first round of the 1989 NBA playoffs. You probably can’t remember because as a Cleveland fan you have so many more horribly disappointing memories cluttering your memory- Red Right 88, The Catch, The Drive, The Fumble, The Streak, The Decision, The Move and the Curse of Rocky Colavito. Jordan and the Bulls were on their way to six NBA championships. Only six more to go for the Cavs. I’m sure you’ll get there some day. I mean, what could possibly wrong for a Cleveland sports franchise?
