WASHINGTON, May 2 (UPI) -- A 15-0 second quarter run Friday spurred the Cleveland Cavaliers' 105-88 rout of Washington and a 4-2 victory in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.
Cleveland trailed 31-23 with 50 seconds left in the first quarter, but the spurt led to a 56-48 halftime lead.
Washington trailed by double digits the entire second half when the Cavaliers committed only one turnover.
The winners were led by LeBron James' triple-double (27 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists).
Cleveland, which reached the NBA Finals last season, will next play the Boston-Atlanta winner in the East semifinals.
