Members of the Cleveland Cavaliers, including coach Tyronn Lue, LeBron James, and Kyrie Irving, shared early reactions to Toronto’s Semifinals victory over Miami. Being that the Cavs have gone a cumulative 8-0 throughout the postseason, King James was understandably confident about the upcoming series.

“They have a lot of confidence right now, going into two Game 7s and winning both of those games [vs. Miami and Indiana]. We’re just looking forward to the challenge,” Lue said. “[We’re] ready to play and I think today is just a relief. Now we know who we’re playing and now we can get focused and now we can lock in on what we’re trying to do.”
“It’s always great to go against another great point guard and All-Star in our league,” Irving said of Lowry. “He does a tremendous job of leading their team. I have to do a great job of keeping my body in front of him, making it difficult and forcing him into tough shots. He’s a great player so I’m looking forward to the matchup…we’re pretty good right now, but there’s another level we can get to. I’m pretty excited to do that in the conference finals.”
