Cavs rush to 3-0 lead behind James' 35 points

Cavs rush to 3-0 lead behind James' 35 points

Lowry did not play in the Game 3 loss Friday, did not practice Saturday and was pessimistic about the ankle improving before Sunday's tipoff at 3:30 p.m. ET.

The Cavaliers are the first team since the Minneapolis Lakers in 1949 and 1950 to win their first seven playoff games in consecutive seasons. No team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

LeBron James' reign of terror in the Eastern Conference continues.

"I'm probably doubtful", Lowry said.

"We knew we were coming to a hostile environment. Next man mentality and we're all playing good together".

The Raptors led 52-49 at halftime after finishing the second quarter with a 15-6 run.

"Our second unit guys came in and gave us a big push", James said. Never was this seen more than Friday night when the Raptors, at home, watched as the Cavaliers took a two-point lead after three quarters and turned it into a 21-point blowout.

Korver opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer.

Aldridge had managed just 19 points combined in the first two games, but stepped up in the wake of Parker's season-ending leg injury, scoring nine points in the fourth quarter to help the Spurs pull away.

In Game 2, the Cavs defeated the Raptors by 125-103 which is a new franchise Playoff record for points scored. LeBron has now passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time Playoff scoring list with 5,777 points and sits in second place with only Michael Jordan ahead of him on 5,987. He finished with 35 points, 7 assists, and 8 boards.

The Cavaliers took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter and took command of the game with an 18-3 run.

Irving's 3-pointer restored Cleveland's lead with 2:45 left in the half. Patrick Patterson, DeMarre Carroll, P.J. Tucker, and Serge Ibaka are all supposed to be capable from three point range, and the team just hasn't gotten anything from them. The Cavs had a 33-point differential from three-point range.

Charity Stripe: The Cavs shot 85.7 percent from the free throw line, hitting 24-of-28. James led Cleveland with 16 first-half points. They also finally seemed to realize that Jonas Valanciunas can have his way with Tristan Thompson. DeMar DeRozan has been the star of the Raptors season, but in Game 2 he was held to just five points by Cleveland's JR Smith.

Lowry, when asked by reporters if he'll be able to play in Game 4, said he's doubtful because of the swelling and pain he's experiencing in his ankle.
