LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were the most consistent team in the NBA during the regular season on their way to a league best record of 61-21.

With a dominant performance over the Utah Jazz last night, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers are set to square off against the Phoenix Suns , who just dismantled a veteran San Antonio Spurs team, in the Western Conference Finals.
