Cleveland Cavaliers beat Chicago Bulls in Eastern semi-final

Matthew Dellavedova: Unlikely hero for the Cleveland CavaliersMatthew Dellavedova: Unlikely hero for the Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a poor shooting night to beat the Chicago Bulls 94-73 and secure a place in the Eastern Conference finals.

LeBron James managed only 15 points on 7-of-23 shooting and the Cavaliers were aided by fine performances off the bench from Matthew Dellavedova and JR Smith after losing star guard Kyrie Irving to an early injury.

Irving scored six points in 12 minutes but then left the game after twisting his knee when he landed on team-mate Tristan Thompson’s foot.
