Raptors' Kyle Lowry calls himself "doubtful" for Game 4

Raptors' Kyle Lowry calls himself

After showing his passport at the Canadian border, James will settle in and take inventory of his new surroundings in Toronto on Friday.

Cleveland won 10 straight to begin the playoffs a year ago, a streak that ended when Toronto beat the Cavs in Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Lowry, who missed 21 games late in the regular season after undergoing wrist surgery, is a vocal leader whether he's on the floor or the bench.

Spurs 103, Rockets 92: LaMarcus Aldridge had 26 points and seven rebounds as San Antonio took back home-court advantage with a road win in Game 3 for a 2-1 series lead.

The Cavs have are now 7-0 in the postseason this year and have won 10-straight playoff games dating back to least year's NBA Finals.

The series moves to Toronto for Game 3 on Friday at 7 p.m. EST.

The US benchmark West Texas Intermediate fell 1 per cent to $45.96 a barrel, while Brent crude dropped 1.1 per cent to $48.79. Analysts said USA markets were pressured by Chinese data showing slower export growth in April than in the previous month.

Maybe the power of Drake can help lift the Toronto Raptors up over the Cleveland Cavaliers in game three of their National Basketball Association playoff series.

"We wouldn't be talking about it", James said.

"Hopefully some things change, but right now I don't think I'll be able to play", Lowry said, per ESPN. He's quick. He's one of the best in the league with the basketball. A void evident in all 12 quarters of what has mostly been a one-sided series.

After totaling only nine points in the first two games, Korver closed the third quarter with consecutive treys and hit another to start the fourth. While Cleveland was well rested with eight days off since sweeping the Indiana Pacers in the first round, the Raps just didn't bring the energy and had an even bigger meltdown in game two.

LBJ: After passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for second place on the NBA's all-time scoring list in playoffs games in Game Two, LeBron James now has his sights set on all-time leader Michael Jordan, who has 5,987 points. He put up 37 points after scoring only 5 in the previous game. We didn't know if it was going to take 36 minutes or 40 minutes, but we knew if we just played our game, paid attention to our details, then we would have an opportunity to win the game. Kyrie Irving added 16 points and Kyle Korver chipped in 14 points (4-6 from three).

Jonas Valanciunas added 19 points for the Raptors, while Norman Powell chipped in with 13 and Serge Ibaka had 12.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) Under Analyst Spotlight
If we look at stock performance in last active day trading, we see that stock has moved remains unchanged to end the day at $6.30. The stock of Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK ) earned "Hold" rating by Deutsche Bank on Wednesday, October 14.

The Cavs shot 51 per cent and were 13 of 23 from three-point range.

Charity Stripe: The Cavs shot 85.7 percent from the free throw line, hitting 24-of-28.

But the real separator between the Cavs and the Raps. The Cavs really came out strong in the fourth quarter with a revamped bench lineup, featuring Tristan Thompson instead of Channing Frye.

Not Good: The Cavs had a rare game with more turnovers than assists.

A three-time All-Star, Lowry sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Toronto's Game 2 loss on Wednesday and did not practice Thursday.

"See how I feel, see how the ankle feels and go from there", said Lowry.

Rubbishing their arguments, CBSE officials said that it was the mistake on part of the students. "I did not challenge them". NEET-UG (Undergraduate), for MBBS and BDS courses, will be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

Hope is about all that remains for the Toronto Raptors when they play Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night at the Air Canada Centre. If Valanciunas opens game 4 with a lot of touches and points, Cleveland will be forced to send help defense.
