LeBron haunts Raptors with yet another legendary moment

  • Despite it seeming like a formality Game 4 represents many things to many people

Kyle Lowry and OG Anunoby did what they could to try and will them to a comeback win but LeBron James had different plans. "He split the trap and went 100 miles per hour down the floor".

The Cavs began the fourth quarter with a 14-point lead, but Toronto cut it to five with 8:12 to go.

The deciding shot was also his second game-winner of the playoffs after his three-pointer in Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers late last month as he reflected on it after the game.

The 105-103 win in Game 3 gave the Cavaliers a 3-0 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinals series, and put the Raptors on the brink of elimination.

The Cavs, up 2-0 on the Raptors after a dominant 128-110 win in Game 2, are in the driver's seat to advance, if not sweep.

"You know he's going left", a dejected Kyle Lowry said afterwards.

"T-Lue [coach Tyronn Lue] was the one who told us to take it full court, knowing that I have more than enough time to get the ball up the court", James told a news conference.

"So the level of difficulty of that shot, it is very hard".

Immediately after winning two games in Canada, the Cavs came dwelling and won a brawl using the Raptors, that simply can't even be at James. One of the 129 teams at N.B.A. history to collapse behind, 3-0, not one has come straight back to succeed. Toronto had the East's best record, the No. 1 seed, home-court advantage and a Cleveland team that appeared very beatable.


The Raptors said they needed 48 minutes of defence and they came up with 43 minutes of it. "You see him shoot that all the time with one hand in practice", Love said.

"Our goal in the timeout was to trap him and make somebody else beat us", Casey said.

The unquestioned highlight of the first half, and maybe the entire playoffs, was Joel Embiid's huge dunk all over Aron Baynes off of a sweet dish from Ben Simmons. He inserted 6-foot guard Fred VanVleet and benched forward Ibaka, going with a smaller lineup to push the pace.

Toronto is going to need a pair of massive performances from their All-Star duo in Saturday's Game 3.

"You've got to win four games to get out of a series and it starts with the next game, so I will be as sharp as I was tonight".

Seconds later, Marco Belinelli stunned everyone with a falling 22-footer in front of the 76ers bench as time expired that sent the game into overtime - and confetti mistakenly blasted from the cannon. If the Raptors' shooters can regain their hot shooting touch on Saturday they will be victorious.

Toronto played a physical game, harassing and bumping James at every turn.

A gassed James called for a sub and was removed from the game with 4:04 left and the Cavs up 11, but Love took over at that crucial juncture.
