Cavaliers vs Raptors Game 2 scores and updates

How Tristan Thompson’s fourth-quarter work on Jonas Valanciunas helped rally Cavaliers

"We thrive off adversity, every single guy on this team, we thrive off adversity". "We've been in tough situations before". That's what point we're at now. "He knew what was at stake, he knew us getting another win here was going to be huge for us".

James delivered the first 40-point, 14-assist game in National Basketball Association playoff history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Twice already Toronto has been dispatched by Cleveland in the post-season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Toronto Raptors 113-112 in overtime in Toronto to take a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals, wresting home court advantage away from the Raptors in the process.

The added rest was particularly good for Joel Embiid, who averaged 25.5 points and 11.3 rebounds over 16 games in the regular season.

The Raptors had a three-point lead after one quarter.

After the Cavs erased a 2-point halftime deficit and took an 11-point lead into the fourth quarter, Jones referred to the Raptors' home city as "LeBronto". Acknowledging that longevity, it was one of the more spectacular displays of shot-making skill we've seen from him. "Yeah, we gotta play harder".

9 people aboard military plane that crashed in Savannah, no apparent survivors
US President Donald Trump tweeted he had been briefed on the incident, and offered his condolences to the families of the victims. NBC affiliate WSAV is reporting that two people have been killed in the crash, however this has not been officially confirmed.

While Lue might have stuck to his guns when it came to Love, continuing to put him at the 5 for spacing reasons on offense, Love ended up being freed up from having to contend with the Raptors' 7-foot, 265-pound center Jonas Valanciunas anyway because of Toronto coach Dwane Casey's rotation in the second half.

But that's just what the scoreboard said. And after dropping the first two games of the series at home, you have to think the Raptors confidence is as low as its ever been, as there's not a lot of teams to win a series after dropping the first two at home.

The problem with that is the Cavaliers didn't take control of this one until the third quarter. "But Cleveland is just 3-for-12 from three-point range, a number that feels like it has to increase in the Cavaliers" favor. It's safe to say the start of the second half did not go the way the Raptors would've liked. But there was no answer for James, who by then was scoring seemingly at will, many of his shots falling - agonizingly - at the shot-clock buzzer.

A big third quarter was the key for LeBron and his crew, as Cleveland scored 37 points while limiting Toronto to only 24.

With the series switching to Cleveland, things are looking bleak for top-seeded Toronto.

"We still got a long way to go, man". The nine-year veteran center only scored seven points in game one, and he is now posting 13.1 points and 9.9 rebounds in the playoffs. The Raptors shot 54 per cent. LeBron is LeBron, and Game 3 is Saturday. If this version of Love keeps showing up, the Cavs should be headed to the NBA Finals again. May. J.R. Smith scored 15 points, Jeff Green had 14 and George Hill 13 as the Cavaliers posted their eighth consecutive postseason victory over the Raptors and halted Toronto's four-game winning streak in Game 2s.

LeBron does not seem to care if Drake's music plays in the arena or not. His best performance as 3-of-6 in Game 6 against the Pacers. Even Kendrick Perkins found a way to be useful in the Game 1 of the series. They didn't need to be in Game 1. His 31 points today are more than he had in his previous three games combined (28), and he went to the line seven times after not going there at all in the previous three games, too.
