James scores 35, Cavs take 3-0 lead with 115-94 victory

Raptors' DeMar DeRozan Will Give $100 To Anyone Who Can Stop LeBron James

The Rockets scratched together just six field goals on 25 percent shooting in the first quarter. He hit three of his four threes in a 60-second span over the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth, and the game began to split. Cleveland is 9-0 since losing Game 4 of last year's NBA Finals. We knew we were coming into a hostile environment.

With his team on the brink of elimination, Raptors coach Dwane Casey looked at Game 4 a little differently. That means Sunday is possibly his last game with the Raptors.

That's how many consecutive playoff series in which the Cavaliers' superstar has won a road game, thanks to a 115-94 pasting of the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of this Eastern Conference semifinal. "This year we understood what mindset we had to come in, especially in a rowdy arena like this". Kawhi Leonard added 26 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists as the Spurs took a 2-1 series lead.

"To beat the champ, you have to throw punches", Casey said. "For whatever reason, it's escaping us right now".

"So for us not to have him anything close to 100 per cent, it would be hard on us", DeRozan said. Ariza totaled 17 points but had two after the intermission.

First, the Raptors hope that All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry will be able to play after suffering a sprained left ankle in Game 2 Wednesday. He worked out a few hours before Friday's game and was on the court during warm-ups but hobbled back to the locker room before the anthems.

TV viewers watched as one of Thomas' front teeth flew out of his mouth in a collision Sunday with Washington's Otto Porter Jr.in Game 1. "He just couldn't go. The medical people know the severity his ankle". He participated in the warmup and was listed as active for the game, but Cory Joseph started in his place.

The evenly matched third quarter then saw both teams hold a lead, with a pair of Korver 3-pointers in the final minute of the period helping give the Cavaliers that 79-77 advantage entering the last quarter.

Instead a 2-for-18 night from distance ruined an otherwise solid showing for three quarters by a Raptors team that was playing without its starting point guard. He finished with 35 points, 7 assists, and 8 boards. He's a good friend of mine, a well-respected guy in our league and we never, no matter throughout competition you don't want anybody to get hurt.

The 3-0 hole the Raptors find themselves in is the first since they were victims of a sweep two years ago in the first round in Washington. And when Brampton, Ont., native Tristan Thompson scored with 5:47 to play, it gave the Cavs a 99-80 lead, much to the dismay of the noisy, white-clad Air Canada Centre crowd that included Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip and rapper Drake.

The Spurs were playing in the postseason without Parker for the first time since 2001, ending an National Basketball Association record of 221 straight playoff appearances for the Frenchman. We were in the game throughout the whole game, but shoot 11 percent from the 3-point line. James hit 15-of-16 free throws.

A basket with Valanciunas ended a 17-1 Cavs run with 5:20 to play, but the game had got away from Toronto by that point. James led Cleveland with 16 first-half points. Cleveland has now been 84 points better than Toronto on 3s.

Percentages: FG.513, FT.857.

The team said Thomas has a four-piece temporary bridge that cracked when he was re-injured and replaced at halftime of Game 3 on Thursday.

Blocked Shots: 4 (Ibaka 2, Joseph, Patterson). "There is a level of defensive focus and intensity and physicality that we got to get to and can get to and will get to".
