  • LeBronto trending as Cleveland's James completes two-game Toronto takeover

"He demanded the ball and we got it to him", said LeBron James who had 43 points and 14 assists alongside Love's breakout game. He stated that the team still has a long way to go and that this is only the ninth postseason game they have played together. Then the Cavs would constantly be within five points of tying the game only for the Raptors to slip away.

Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said that Love's pace helped spread the floor.

Unfortunately for the Raptors, James insisted the Cavs aren't satisfied with their 2-0 lead.

The Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Saturday in game three of the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs at the Quicken Loans Arena. "And if we get five guys scoring in double figures, things are going to look better".

Kyle Lowry scored 18 points in 6 of 7 shooting from the field to lead the Raptors in a 63-61 halftime over the Cleveland Cavaliers. "We've been in tough situations before". Philadelphia hosts Game 3 Saturday at 5 p.m ET.




It was that kind of night for the Raptors and that kind of night for the Cavs.

Green had made seven 3-pointers in eight games this postseason.

The Cavaliers defeated the Raptors on Thursday, 128-110, in the second game of their Eastern Conference semifinal. George Hill had 13 points, Jeff Green had 14 points off the bench and Cleveland took nearly no low-percentage shots (outside of James' contested fadeaways, which were high-percentage shots on Thursday).

The ugliness continued in the fourth, as the Cavs opened the quarter with a 7-0 run to take an 18-point lead. DeMar DeRozan wasn't sharp in the defeat, netting 24 points on 11 for 23 shooting, which included an 0 for 5 effort from beyond the arc. They have not had much success at Quicken Loans Arena, but will have to find a way to win two games on the road in order to win the series. I know it's amusing to say, but I've had a lot of great looks and really uncharacteristic misses for me. His 31 points today are more than he had in his previous three games combined (28), and he went to the line seven times after not going there at all in the previous three games, too. Acknowledging that longevity, it was one of the more spectacular displays of shot-making skill we've seen from him. Cleveland was running Love off picks and attacking the rim on offense - the Cavaliers were 9-of-11 at the rim in the first quarter and didn't have a bucket outside the paint. This is the third consecutive game LeBron has played more than 40 minutes, and the eighth time out of nine games so far in the playoffs.
