ATLANTA (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers were actually being challenged.
Finally, LeBron James had seen enough.
James scored 47 points in his best game yet of these playoffs, leading the Cavaliers to the brink of their second straight postseason sweep with a 97-82 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.
Back home after two blowout losses in Cleveland, the Hawks put up their best fight of the series. It didn't matter. They now find themselves just one defeat away from being eliminated, the Cavaliers pushing out to another 3-0 lead after breezing past Detroit in the opening round.
