LeBron James says Cavs 'still got some work to do' vs. Raptors

Pelicans eager to try to continue recent home success in Game 3 vs. Warriors

James hit a number of ferociously baffling fadeaway jump shots in the second half of the contest that made it look like he was playing against himself.

Kyle Lowry was the main source of hope for Toronto through the game, leading the team with 27 points (15 in the fourth quarter) as well as seven assists. The Cavs made it a point to get Love involved in the playoffs as early and often as possible, and he responded by posting a total of 31 points and 11 rebounds.

What a couple of games we were treated to on Saturday, as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics both took 3-0 leads in incredibly dramatic ways.

James finished with 38 points, Kevin Love added 21 and 16 rebounds and Kyle Korver scored 18 for the Cavs, who have won nine straight postseason games over the Raptors and may sweep them for the second straight year. "We could play so much better, but it was a gutsy win". "I have been saying it all year and you know how Dwane Casey is all about defence".

"The level of difficulty of that shot is very hard", James said. Of the 129 teams in National Basketball Association history to fall behind 3-0, none has come back to win. Toronto had the East's best record, the No. 1 seed, home-court advantage and a Cleveland team that appeared very beatable. He followed it up with a step-back 3-pointer on C.J. Miles and then got two more points at the free throw line on the next possession to push the lead back to 10. But there's no fast-tracking the process where you say, 'OK, let's try to end this thing so we can get some rest.' You do that, and you get a lot of rest. The duo exchanged one of the best post-game-winner high-five and finger-pointing sequences you will ever see.

Still on a night when Toronto need to have all guns firing, DeRozan wasn't a factor with a 3-of-12 shooting night.

The Raptors went with a small lineup, giving Fred VanVleet his first career start in place of the slumping Serge Ibaka. That hasn't been the case in the playoffs and it was the same story in the first half.

Seconds later, Marco Belinelli stunned everyone with a falling 22-footer in front of the 76ers bench as time expired that sent the game into overtime - and confetti mistakenly blasted from the cannon. After a Raptors turnover, James found Jeff Green cutting to the basket utterly unmolested by any Toronto defender.

"We got two game-winning, game-tying buckets - layups".

The Houston Rockets ended the Utah Jazz's seven-game home winning streak with a dominant game-three performance and game four will be a great indicator as to whether this game was a backbreaker or a wake-up call for Utah. James moved past Tony Parker (226) for the fifth-most games in postseason history.
