LeBron guides Cavaliers to another clean sweep

"It's not just given to you, you have to go out and earn it".
The Cavaliers are looking at four wins until their third straight Finals, and for LeBron it would be his seventh in a row which is absolutely mind blowing. They took their shot and, like a number of others before them, they missed.
Toronto has Ibaka's Bird rights and will have the capability to re-sign him along with Lowry. An early 11-point lead was whittled to a tie game by the time the first quarter was over, and a tight second quarter was blown open by a confluence of events.
Irving put Cleveland back on top with a 3-pointer and with 5:34 to play made two free throws to give Cleveland a four-point lead. Now the Raptors head into an off-season of uncertainties, including questions around the future of Casey and Kyle Lowry, who plans to opt out of the previous year of his contract and become a free agent. But they're very hard to beat when he's shooting the ball like that because the ball is so spread. If the Wizards win, the Cavs will host the first two games.
Asked to choose between the Celtics and Wizards, James claimed not to have a preferred opponent.
For the majority of the first quarter, the change seemed to spark the Raptors.
We'll see how easy it is. "One thing about Case, Case is one hell of a person outside of a coach". We had to get grittier.
One day after the Toronto Raptors' season ended with a four-game sweep against the Cleveland Cavaliers, All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry confirmed to reporters Monday that he will opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer.
A 3 by Toronto's Fred Van Vleet cut it to 87-86 at 9:51 of the fourth, but James answered with a 3. They kept fighting, shaving the difference to five at the end of the third quarter and taking their first lead at 93-92 with six-plus minutes left in the fourth.
"We needed that spark", James said. But we knew once we got healthy we can go on runs like this, and get our rotations set, and lock in defensively and do some things defensively that we knew we're capable of doing.
Toronto posted back-to-back 50-win seasons for the first time in franchise history and reached the playoffs for the fourth straight year.
P.J. Tucker started this game and was huge. "The guys that are free, the guys that are coming back, we've gotta understand, we've gotta work on our game, become better, and leave it up to the front office to figure out everything else".
The Cavaliers completed their inevitable sweep over the Raptors on Sunday, a series that was the flawless background music for cleaning up your apartment or doing the dishes.
Game 4 is Sunday in Toronto. He was not active Sunday.
Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are the most entertaining part of the Raptors. Totals 39-82 15-16 109.
Percentages: FG.476, FT.938.
Blocked Shots: 5 (Irving, James, Korver, Shumpert, Smith). Porter had 18 points. DeRozan left the game briefly with 8:07 to play in the second quarter after he was inadvertently kicked in the midsection while guarding Iman Shumpert.
Percentages: FG.471, FT.800.
Blocked Shots: 3 (Valanciunas 3). Even if they are able to do that, is a core of Lowry, DeRozan, Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas enough to compete with Cleveland? Points After Turnovers: 17.

Suns fall 2 spots, will pick 4th in NBA Draft
Who won big and who left disappointed? But they are still very much underdogs to the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. King will probably be mocked once again a year from now, when the Celtics - again - get Brooklyn's first-round pick.
United may target Oblak
