The Cavaliers didn't leave their game at the Canadian border this year. After winning the first two games this season, the Cavs went back to Toronto trying to avoid the pitfalls of past year.
With a win Sunday, the Cavs would sweep the Raptors and become the first team in National Basketball Association history to open the playoffs 8-0 in consecutive seasons. Cleveland will go for their second-straight series sweep on Sunday at 3:30 in Toronto. I mean, that's it right there: They've got LeBron James and nobody's closing the gap on him.
"For me, I don't dwell on the past", James said.
"We knew we were coming to a hostile environment".
The Raptors led 52-49 at the intermission and were led by 21 points from DeRozan.
Aroldis Chapman likely out a month with shoulder issue
Chapman had a MRI on Saturday, a day after getting just two outs and giving up a run in the ninth inning of a 5-1 loss to Houston. The Yankees also recalled right-hander Chad Green from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to Sunday's doubleheader.
Toronto led by three points at halftime but the Cavaliers kept pressing in the third and seized command in the fourth.
"Our second unit guys came in and gave us a big push", James said. However, LeBron James and company took control of the game with a 26 to 7 run.
Korver posted his 2017 playoff high with 14 points, shooting 5-of-7 from the field and 4-of-6 from 3-point range.
Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry told reporters Saturday he considers himself doubtful for Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday at the Air Canada Centre because of a sprained ankle.
As usual, LeBron James had a lot to do with the fourth-quarter surge. James scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. Lowry sat on the bench for the whole game. They shot 2-of-18 overall to the Cavs' 13-of-23 (a 33-point disparity).
Why US President Donald Trump was insane to talk about tapes
After all, those close to the president are having a rough week of defending him after the firing of FBI Director James Comey . Trump placed calls to nine members of Congress on Tuesday to alert them of his decision, according to the White House.
This was the first time in seven postseason games that the Cavs held an opponent under 100 points.
Kevin Love added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Cavaliers, and Kyrie Irving also scored 16 while Kyle Korver had 14 points. James led Cleveland with 16 first-half points.
Chairman of the Boards: The Cavs dominated the boards, 58-33.
Not Good: The Cavs had a rare game with more turnovers than assists. But he had just five assists and complained about the officiating all night.
Lowry, who suffered the injury early in the third quarter of Game 2, tried to play Friday night. Lowry's replacement, Norman Powell injured his ankle with 4:25 to play in the first quarter, but returned soon thereafter. In all three games against the Raptors he has hit that points total.
