With eight seconds remaining on the clock LeBron James once again pulled up for a fall away jump shot, banking it in off glass to give the Cavaliers a 3-0 stranglehold on the series.
Before the Raptors it was the Pacers and Hawks who were swept aside by LeBron James. That said, Toronto restructured their team with a view to this very moment and it has failed.
Although the series could just as easily be 2-1 for the Raptors the team north of the border has been unable to get the defining play which could push past the man who is LeBron James. Now all that remains is whether they’ll be swept in Game 4 or prolong the misery to 5 or 6 games.
Serge Ibaka was replaced in the starting rotation by a still less than 100 percent Fred VanVleet. In the second half however, Ibaka finally displayed the type of play his team was expecting to start the series.
DeMar DeRozan sat almost the entirely of the second half watching his teammates claw back into a game they trailed by 17 points.
The lineup of Kyle Lowry, VanVleet, CJ Miles, Ibaka and OG Anunoby were sensational with the latter tying the game in the closing seconds. Unfortunately for Toronto, the rookie’s dramatics were short lived as they once again succumbed to the King.
LeBron James has been nothing short of spectacular in this series. For those wanting to make a solid bet you can bet this series or whoever the Cavaliers face next in the East. But, also go invest in Golden State Warriors versus the Cleveland Cavaliers Round 4. Its happening you can bank on it.
James has raised his game play to an all time high and nothing and no one will stand in the way of him making his eighth consecutive trip to the finals.
Kevin Love was solid once more and Jeff Green has offered the best x-factor lines in the series.
Toronto head man Masai Ujiri had to be physically restrained at the half from going at the referees by the Raptors coaching staff. He was upset the 29th ranked Cavaliers team is inexplicably besting the Raptors top five defense which has reflected in the foul discrepancy (through 3 games Raptors assessed 74 personal fouls vs. Cavs 56) and was summarily fined $25k on Sunday.
Perhaps Ujiri should’ve recognized star players and their teams are bound to get the calls in the postseason and without a player of James’ ilk this was the inevitable outcome.
