Kyle Lowry says he's 'doubtful' for Sunday

Kyle Lowry says he's 'doubtful' for Sunday

After going 9-16 (56.25 percent) from two point range in the first quarter, the Cavs only went 3-14 (21.4 percent) from that range in the second quarter.

Casey feels that the Raptors can play themselves back into the series at home as they did last season, despite dropping the first game 116-105 followed by a 125-103 loss in Game 2.

Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry was "pretty upset" with James's ball-spinning.

Here's what we learned from this one.

Lowry averaged 15.1 points in 38.7 minutes per game. "Next man mentality and we're all playing good together".

They made the Raptors better.

DeRozan was coming off a five-point performance in Game 2, the worst playoff output in his career, but he scored 37 to attempt to carry his team.

Oddsmakers indicate that the series could be more competitive in Toronto with Cleveland favored by just three points, via OddsShark, but the betting line doesn't reflect how dominant LeBron James and the Cavs have been. With Lowry hobbled, DeRozan's offensive responsibility increases beyond the heavy load he already carries. Cleveland will go for their second-straight series sweep on Sunday at 3:30 in Toronto.

Toronto played almost three quarters of solid basketball against the Cavaliers on Friday. That came midway through the third quarter The Raps would only get one more the rest of the night settling for two for the entire night on 18 attempts.

Donald Trump dismisses Russian Federation collusion claims as a total hoax
Justice Department until Trump fired her on January 30 for declining to defend his travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries. The Jan. 26 conversation took place two days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed Flynn about those contacts.

"Just to have that feeling again, people counting you out, whatever negative comes with losing, being down two games, that definitely sucks and it's something that we're gonna have to use tomorrow night", DeRozan said.
"Making sure we take away something".

DeRozan sat down to begin the fourth with his coach believing he needed "a blow". We're executing on the defensive end at a very high level, but it doesn't stop here. But among the players on Toronto's $108 million roster, they need to slow James to some degree.

DeRozan came out of the locker room like he was shot out of a cannon and continued to carry the load for the Raptors, scoring 15 points in the third quarter.

"If people want to use the word 'We got dominated, ' that should get your hair up on your neck a little bit, get you upset a little bit, getting accused of getting dominated", Casey said.

"How things were going, see him down there, just hoping for the best".

"Those were huge", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said of Korver's timely three-pointers.

Perhaps motivated by extra time off earned with a sweep, the Cavs can close out the series in Game 4 Sunday afternoon in Toronto. "It happens. But we made everything extremely tough on them last night, and as long as we can sustain that for 48 minutes, we give ourselves a chance".

"This is the way the playoffs are going to be with me usually", he said. He ran his career field goal total in the playoffs to 2,047, passing Shaquille O'Neal for the third-most in National Basketball Association postseason history. He said his team can't go with the rope-a-dope strategy against the champs; they've got try to hit them back, and throw a whole mix of punches in the process (including some "below the belt").
