"You have to give them credit, they are a heck of a 3-point-shooting team", DeRozan said.
"In that fourth quarter, I just went to (isolations) for Kyrie", Lue said. "This is, they say, where legends are made", James, a three-time National Basketball Association champion, said on Friday in Toronto where his Cavs beat the Raptors 115-94 for a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semi-final.
Lowry said he and Casey have butted heads but added the coach allowed him to "become a three-time all-star and allow me to become the player I am and have a voice". And I have to look at that, we have to take a serious look at that.
Irving's layup with four minutes remaining had Cleveland ahead by eight points. The Cavs burned them for 16 Sunday.
Toronto coach Dwane Casey suggested the worst prior to Game 4. "It's going to take a Herculean effort to beat them".
Unfortunately for the Cavaliers, there won't be a mediocre, good, or really good team waiting for them in the NBA Finals.

The second officer "sustained minor injuries", police said, and was taken to a local hospital in good condition. Authorities say a Chicago police officer has been shot in an incident on the city's West Side.
Asked to choose between the Celtics and Wizards, James claimed not to have a preferred opponent.
"When you start breaking down a lot of the film, I definitely have been blessed to be able to get to the rim and finish around nearly anybody", Irving said.
DeRozan is paid the salary of an elite player, but his game regressed in the playoffs.
San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich pointed to one big reason to explain why his team struggled Sunday night. It happened. We got swept.
Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry will opt out of the final year of his contract and test free agency this summer. P.J Tucker had 14 points and 12 assists in his first career playoff start. James scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. "They just turned us, and (it) kept leading to lay-ups for them".
Irving responded with a three and, following a missed shot by DeRozan, added a pair of free throws to put Cleveland up 97-92 at 5:54.

It will also help the ongoing development of portable accelerators for use in two very different fields: cancer treatments and high-art analysis.
"He tries to go as far as we need him", Lue said.
"If Kyle didn't get hurt, do we win yesterday?"
Ujiri will spend the coming weeks evaluating all facets of the franchise, but what he knows right now is that the Raptors' style of play, which got them to playoffs in four consecutive seasons, isn't working anymore and needs to change. Ibaka has intoned many times that he prefers playing centre to power forward, which was an issue in Orlando and would be in Toronto moving forward should both he and Jonas Valanciunas return.
They said that the team was making defensive errors that would hurt them in the long run, but this team has still imposed it's will on the opposition and has not even given up a loss yet during the playoffs.
Casey tried to preach the positives, but acknowledged that his team's performance hadn't been good enough.
Beal's backcourt mate, John Wall, had 27 points despite missing his first nine shot attempts, and he added 12 assists. Lowry was injured in the third quarter of Game 2.
The two teams meet on Wednesday night in Boston, before a potentially decisive Game 6 in Washington on Friday.
