Cavs bring out the brooms again in Raptors sweep


Irving's layup with four minutes remaining had Cleveland ahead by eight points and James hit a three-pointer with just under three minutes left to put the Cavaliers ahead by 11.

Forward Serge Ibaka scored 23 points and guard DeMar DeRozan had 22 for Toronto.

The King, LeBron James, had an extravagant series against the Toronto Raptors. Korver scored all 16 of his 18 points in the second quarter.

LeBron James had 35 points to top the reigning National Basketball Association champion Cavs, while Kyrie Irving had 27 and Kyle Korver finished with 18. Assistant Mike Brown took over as acting coach for Game 3 of the first-round series against Portland.

This second quote was just after the Cavaliers completed the sweep on the Raptors.

Tucker opened the scoring in the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer to slice the deficit to two points.

Sidelined by a sprained left ankle, Lowry was not active Sunday when Toronto was swept in the second round of the playoffs by defending champion Cleveland.

But according to Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck , the team already seems set on what to do with that prized pick. He's 6'5 with a lot of athleticism, and NY might take him because his game is an ideal fit for the triangle.


Guard DeMar DeRozan, who signed a five-year, $135 million deal to stay with Toronto last summer, said he feels the Raptors are close to competing for a conference title.

Cleveland defeated Toronto 109-102, advancing to the Eastern Conference finals where they will play with the victor of the Washington Wizards-Boston Celtics series.

The Cavs finished off the Raptors about an hour before Game 4 between the Celtics and Wizards tipped off in Washington.

For the third game in four, Casey switched up his starters, this time returning Norm Powell to the bench and inserting Tucker into the starting five. Yet Kyrie has shown continued growth in his overall playmaking, finding ways to help the team even when his shot isn't falling.

The Wizards outscored Boston 42-20 in the third with Wall, Beal and Markieff Morris combining for 34 points in the period. The Warriors, at 67-15 owners of the best regular-season record in the 2016-17 season, won the first three games against the Jazz by an average of 11 points.

The Raptors went on a run in the third and even led briefly in the fourth quarter (something that they hadn't even previously sniffed at in this series), but ultimately it wasn't enough.

Though nothing compared to eight technical fouls and three ejections in Game 3, tensions bubbled up late after the result was no longer in doubt. He played a whopping 46 minutes, scored 14 points, nailed four of his seven three-point attempts, grabbed 12 rebounds, and swiped four steals. Porter had 18 points.

Raptors: Toronto shot 10-for-29 from 3-point range.

The Wizards outrebounded the Celtics 45-31 and scored 56 points in the paint.

Looking at the past is a unsafe road teams should be tired of travelling, but it's hard to imagine the Raptors not feeling some sort of regret, especially where they're now headed. Thomas was called for a technical foul in the fourth quarter, but the situation did not escalate.

Little did Biyombo know, that aura around the Raptors would change with his departure. If Boston wins, the Celtics will have home court advantage.

Boston flipped the script Sunday.

There are questions to be answered just as there are any time a season falls short of the ultimate goal.
