ATLANTA, Georgia-Led by LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks on the Hawks' home turf Friday night 94-82 to win game two, making them two of two in the Eastern Conference Finals. It is a series of the best of seven, the winner of which will play the winner of the Western Conference Finals,  a best of seven championship series for the NBA Championship title.

The Cavs will return to Cleveland with a lead in the series and an eye on this year's NBA title. Game three is on Sunday, May 24  at 8:30 pm EPT, and will air on cable channel TNT.

Cavaliers key players Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving missed Friday nights game, though James made his necessary 30 points to get the Cavs over the top.

The Hawks are missing key starting players too, though DeMarre Caroll did play, but with an obvious limp.

The Hawks trailed by five at halftime, but were outscored 30-17 in the second half, which contributed to their loss on Friday. ( / (
