LeBron James, Cavaliers Survive Early Struggles to Beat Raptors in Game 3

08 May 2017

"You have to key on the other guys". We go back to Toronto. "If you find someone who can stop LeBron in these moments, I'll give you $100".

James scored 35 points in the win and is now averaging 34.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists in the postseason.

In game two on May 3, the Cavaliers mopped the floor with the Raptors 125-103 which was an even more impressive drubbing than game one.

Jonas Valanciunas returned to the starting lineup after coming off the bench in Game 2 and scored 23 points. In Game 2 he spun the ball in his hands before pulling up for a 3-pointer over Serge Ibaka.

Various media reports said Kerr is unlikely to coach this series, but the team said he has not been officially ruled out to return this round.

After being held to a playoff career-low five points Wednesday, DeRozan scored 37 points.

People living with a host of medical conditions are anxious about the future of their coverage if the Republican plan becomes law. Obamacare's mandate that insurers charge the same rates on sick and healthy people has also been added to the "opt out" pool.

"You don't want to get swept, especially in your home building", Casey told the media after the game. "It's still pretty sore", Lowry said. But I love playing out on the road more than I love playing at home.

"You never thought it would come true, but I worked hard and I'm here and I'm just blessed". "If I didn't see it, I would have drove it and if I didn't have the drive, I would have (given) it up and let one of my teammates attack". I put a lot of work into my craft. "It's disrespectful. But it shows us that we're playing too soft. You got to fight, you got to compete". The Cavs only attempted 3 three pointers in the first quarter (an oddity for this team), but they shot an efficient 52.6 percent from the field in the first quarter while dominating the boards and shooting well from the free throw line. James scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. The Cavs also recorded a 2017 playoff-high 28 assists.

James made up for Irving's shooting woes. "Just sucks to see anybody go down, no matter who it was", DeRozan said. Those first two quarters proved to be markedly different for the Cavs offense. In Game 1 he called an alley-oop off the glass from Kyrie Irving in the first quarter.

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. Toronto can't seem to find a way to be competitive in Cleveland, where the Cavs are tough for anyone to beat.

"They really locked in on us", said DeRozan.

For several days now, the talk had been not about whether the Raptors would win, but whether the Cavs were troubled by them in the least.

"And in the playoffs we're showing that". "For whatever reason it's escaping us right now".

J.R. Smith, the primary defender on DeRozan through the first two games when DeRozan struggled, got into some early foul trouble just because DeRozan was so aggressive.

The Cavaliers were off to the races, blowing past Toronto with a 36-17 quarter for a 115-94 win Friday that left the Raptors reeling - facing elimination in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal Sunday. He was scheduled to undergo more tests.

Cleveland led by as many as nine points in the second quarter before the Raptors tied it at 43 on a layup by Ibaka with 3:41 to play in the first half.

Dominating the Raptors is nothing new for James and the Cavs. Lowry is the team's best three-point shooter and its second-leading scorer and his absence was a factor.
