CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James had a triple-double and the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed postseason perfect through 10 games with a 108-89 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

James had 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as the Cavs became the fourth team in NBA history to start 10-0 in the playoffs, joining the Los Angeles Lakers (1989, 2001) and San Antonio Spurs (2012). Only the second Lakers team won an NBA title, and the Cavs are now two wins from appearing in their second straight NBA Finals and trying to end Cleveland’s 52-year sports championship drought.

Kyrie Irving scored 26 and Kevin Love 19 for Cleveland.

The Raptors managed to hang around longer than in Game 1, when they were blown out by 31. They host Game 3 on Saturday night.
