LeBron stays hot on the road as the Cavs tame the Raptors
Toronto just can’t catch a break. After getting bounced from the ECF last year they’ve been constantly bragging about how the Cavs had a huge target on their back, and now that we’re here, finding themselves in a 0-3 hole.
Kyle Lowry did not play in Game 3 after suffering an injury to his ankle in Game 2. For three quarters this game was as close as it can get, and there was finally a Demar DeRozan sighting, but it still wasn’t enough to gain ground. DeRozan exploded from the start for 37 points, but in the fourth quarter he went pedestrian only scoring one point. Yup you read that right. Jonas Valanciunas continues to be a stud scoring 19 points again along with 8 rebounds. Serge Ibaka was fantastic defensively and had 12 points, Norman Powell also reached double figures with 13. Cory Joseph put up a complete dud with 4 points in 33 minutes making 2-for-12 from the field in a poor performance in front of the home crowd.
LeBron James continues to impress, but then again should we really be impressed? This seems like another normal day in the office for LeBron as he dominated the Raptors defense with 35 points. Kevin Love bounced back with another double-double 16 points, 13 rebounds, Kyrie Irving put in work with 16 points, and hey there wasn’t only a DeRozan slighting, Kyle Korver also made an appearance on the road scoring 14 points.
Put a fork in the Raptors this series is done. The Cavs remain undefeated in the playoffs starting 7-0, and even the score being tied at 67 a piece at the end of the third, the Cavs busted out in the fourth with a 20-3 run which was pretty much the end for a Toronto. Quick note: Through the first seven games on the playoffs LeBron James has 240 points. The last player to put up that many points in the first seven games of the post-season was Kobe Bryant back in 2008. Boston and Washington are too busy locking horns right now, but there’s no doubt that they are not aware of what the Cavs are doing.
