NBA Roundup 2: Cavs take 3-0 series lead

NBA Roundup 2: Cavs take 3-0 series lead

LeBron James scored 35 points, Kevin Love had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Toronto Raptors 115-94 on Friday night and take a 3-0 lead in their second-round playoff series. "We knew we were going to get their best shot and we were able to get it done when it counted". "We just had to weather the storm".

DeMar DeRozan was aggressive and getting buckets, Norman Powell was playing solid defense on LeBron James and forcing him into tough shots, Jonas Valanciunas was using his size to score, and as a team the Raptors were attacking the Cavaliers in smarter ways. In all three games against the Raptors he has hit that points total.

Toronto had not lost three consecutive games since the All-Star break.

"I just keep on telling myself that I've got to be ready for that game and tonight was one of them".

The team said Thomas has a four-piece temporary bridge that cracked when he was re-injured and replaced at halftime of Game 3 on Thursday.

Howard told Recode that there are always folks - from comment rounds to town halls - who "scream sometimes" and cause distraction. When asked about the supposed bot on its site, a spokesperson for the FCC said the agency does not comment on individual filings.

Casey was unusually optimistic considering his team was looking at this game as an important opportunity to play their way back into the series.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have jolted the Toronto Raptors thus far in their Eastern Conference Semifinals game of the 2017 NBA Playoffs series. "This year we understood what mindset we had to come in, especially in a rowdy arena like this". "We shoot threes. We play fast. That stretch, right at the beginning of the fourth quarter, is what got us". "Not just me, the whole team as well", he said. Cleveland has scored 84 more points from the three-point line in three games than the Raps have.

"He was limping badly", Casey said. "He wanted to. The doctors and trainers and medical people were just telling him he shouldn't try to go because he was in so much pain".

Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors are about to be taken out of the playoffs by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. DeRozan missed his first four field-goal attempts, but finally starting making them 10 minutes in.

After a disastrous start to this series, DeMar DeRozan had a great first half of basketball, scoring 21 points on 7-12 shooting in the first half to lead the game in scoring. Kyle Korver ended the quarter with back-to-back threes to give the Cavs a 79-77 lead after three quarters. Serge Ibaka, after shooting almost 40 percent from long range after joining the Raptors in a midseason trade, was 0-of-3, continuing his postseason struggles.

Combine still has value even if top NBA prospects skip it
Durant's combine visited was defined not by his skills on the court, but by his inability to bench press 185 pounds. They would like to see every one of them play five-on-five, do all the (drills).

Valanciunas took the message to heart, sending James sailing into the court-side seats after the two got tangled up. The Cavs really came out strong in the fourth quarter with a revamped bench lineup, featuring Tristan Thompson instead of Channing Frye.

The 3-0 hole the Raptors find themselves in is the first since they were victims of a sweep two years ago in the first round in Washington.

Raptors: Joseph started for the first time in 70 playoff appearances.

James, who averaged 37 points in the first two games, was showing more of his superstar talent late as the Cavs wore on the Raps and built a 23-point fourth-quarter lead. James hit 15-of-16 free throws. This game's first three quarters were likely their best shot to reverse a decision in this series.
