Raptors aim to avoid sweep as betting underdogs vs. Cavs

The frustration is they have had their openings. They're trying to lean on us, grabbing us, holding us and it's not being called.

It's headache-causing, he added. Well, we might just find out Wednesday night in Game 5. It's easy in hindsight to say that play changes everything. "That's all you ask - in a hostile situation, the other team playing really well, putting ourselves in a position to win". And it showed real grit in mounting one comeback after another, only to have James and the Cavs push them back. And the result of this bit of tactical genius would limit the damage done from James's supporting cast, which came into the series looking faded and inadequate.

"Everyone had counted Cleveland out", said coach Dwane Casey, whose job could be in jeopardy.

"We had a lot of challenges, but we had a great game plan", James said. But I knew mentally, maybe, what was going on in their head. "That's about it. It was the mental stuff, not the basketball stuff that hurt us the most".

Even Saturday Night Live contributed to the narrative that LeBron James is a one-man team, producing a skit this past weekend that displayed fictional Cavaliers' teammates saying things like: "LeBron throws us the ball, and we throw it right back".

"Right now, he's just relishing these moments", forward Kyle Korver said. Instead, Kyle Lowry's shot deserted him, while DeMar DeRozan wasn't getting open enough to make a difference. "As far as the fight, I love what we did the other night".

With eight seconds to go, Toronto's British rookie OG Anunoby scored a three-pointer to take it to 103-103.

The goal in sports is always to be peaking at the end of the season.

Drake, whose handle is "champagnepapi", replied, with three loudly crying face emojis: "nah my season starts in June junior". Cleveland won just 50, but are now poised to eliminate the Raptors from the playoffs.

The Cavaliers had been in control for the majority of the game, but a late run from the Raptors had suddenly put the game in question in the final minute.

Unlike Game 6 against Indiana, Monday's Game 4 is a home contest for Cleveland, which should be in the Cavs' favor.

The matchup was LeBron's 42nd playoff series and the first he has ever won without having a single teammate contributing 20 or more points in a single game.

Of those 129, 79 were swept (61.2 per cent), 37 extended the series to five games (28.7 per cent), 10 went six games (7.8 per cent) and only three forced a Game 7 (2.3 per cent). They overhauled their entire system and philosophy, earned the No. 1 seed for the first time in franchise history, finished the regular season with a top-five offense and defense and it just didn't matter. Our coach told us that the team that is down 0-3 is 0-129.
