LeBron James has earned a rest, and he intends on taking it.

After once again leading the Cavaliers in scoring (game-high 45 points) during Sunday's 105-101 series-clinching win over the Pacers, he made it clear he was ready for a break.

"I'm burnt right now," James said after the win. "I'm not thinking about Toronto right now, not until (Monday). I'm ready to go home. I'm tired. I want to go home."

James outscored the rest of Cleveland's starting lineup combined Sunday, continuing his unrivaled playoff form. Trying to lead the Cavaliers to their fourth straight NBA Finals appearance, James is going to need some rest and help from his teammates to get the job done.

The Cavaliers face top-seeded Toronto in Game 1 on Tuesday.
