LeBron hits historical highs in Cavs sweep of Raptors

If the Wizards win, the Cavs will host the first two games.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are headed back to a familiar place after sweeping aside another overmatched opponent. "There's desperation at their end and desperation at our end".

Tyronn Lue said that LeBron is like Michael Jordan in terms of how he's stopping great players go to a new level. We push our team, and do what we need to do to get our team wins, and we've just got to get better.

Tucker proved his worth in the playoffs, particularly in Game 4 against Cleveland when he forced LeBron James to make six turnovers.

As for what he's looking for in free agency, Lowry said the chance at a championship is top of his list. "I haven't thought too far ahead of any of that", he said in his exit interview.

'If you turn the ball over against these guys, you'd prefer to drop kick it into the stands so that at least you can set your defense, ' Stevens said. It is already reported that the Boston Celtics want to look for a small forward in the offseason to help with scoring and they haven't even faced the Cavaliers yet. "Keep pressing them, go up 50 if we can". The last Leonard basket was a 3-pointer, and when Danny Green followed with two 3-pointerss, the San Antonio lead was 94-82 with 3:15 left. "Because it might be the right way to go, you never know". We're just riding him right now. I've just gotta be better.

"A lot of the offense was on LeBron's shoulders", said Irving, who was willing to share the load.

The Cavaliers got double-digit efforts from guard Kyle Korver (18 points) and forward Channing Frye (10) off the bench.

Serge Ibaka scored 23 points for the Raptors, and DeMar DeRozan had 22.

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. Unless the Raptors re-sign him with a higher salary, Kyle may leave DeMar behind and seek another team. They're the defending champs for a reason.

"Being with great players, as well as one of the guys that has an understanding of how to control the game with LeBron, he just gives himself up", Irving said. Last year, the Raptors lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a nail-biting game where both teams could have advanced.

Boston led by 11 points at one point in the second quarter, but it was 48-48 at the break.

Washington shot 52.4 percent from the field and outscored Boston 42-20 in the third quarter. P.J Tucker had 14 points and 12 assists in his first career playoff start.

However, it was Kyrie Irving time as the point guard outscored the Raptors himself 11-2 over the next 2:38 to give the Cavs a 103-95 lead with four minutes to play. Ariza totaled 17 points but had two after the intermission.

A 3 by Toronto's Fred Van Vleet cut it to 87-86 at 9:51 of the fourth, but James answered with a 3.

Lowry sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Game 2 and aggravated the injury while trying to warm up for Friday's Game 3.
