LeBron James blows away Toronto as Cleveland advance in National Basketball Association playoffs
20 Мая 2017, 01:43 | Andy Ferguson
James led all scorers with 10 points and Ibaka led Toronto with seven points.
Kyle Lowry was pretty confident that he could take the Toronto Raptors far this season.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) argues over a call with referee Tony Brothers during the second half of Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series against the TorontoRaptors in Toronto, Sunday, May 7, 2017. I'm just kind of shocked some guys take it so personal. "Well, I would, but I'm not this time".
The Raptors met with the media on their traditional post-season locker cleanout day. Like MJ did in the 90s, he's left several good teams - and some great players - wondering: what if?
The Cavs finished the regular season with a defensive rating of 108.0, which was bad enough for 22nd in the league, tied with the woeful Brooklyn Nets. "I always feel that way".
However, it was Kyrie Irving time as the point guard outscored the Raptors himself 11-2 over the next 2:38 to give the Cavs a 103-95 lead with four minutes to play. "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".
Irving put the Cavaliers back on top with a 3-pointer and with 5:34 to go and made two free throws to make it a four-point lead. "You dream about it, you want it but you don't have the experience to actually know", said James, whose Cavaliers can wrap up the series on Sunday in Toronto.
"You know what? That's a good question". Four. That'll be my fourth time. "And then they bring in Frye and Korver, they've got the floor spread so much". Which I will do.
Maybe his best basketball has him feeling confident; James (nearly) chugged a beer on the court earlier in the Raptors series, after all. We pictured Pawcho as a game that could be played as a collaborative effort between parent and child. Do they really want to go back?
"It would be hard", Casey said. If the Washington Wizards win, Game 1 would be in Cleveland.
Lowry sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Game 2 and aggravated the injury while trying to warm up for Friday's Game 3.
"Man, it sucked", he said. "So I commend all my teammates". The teams the Cavs will face in successive rounds should be a little more sophisticated in their attacks than the Raptors, which means a sweep likely won't come as easy in the conference finals. "It's going to be a decision on him that he's going to have to make, and I support him 100 per cent". "In that fourth quarter, I tried to get him out for a couple of minutes, but he said, 'No, I'm fine, just get me a timeout and I'll be OK'".
"Honestly, I haven't thought about the criteria".
Whether it's the city of Toronto, hoops fans, the franchise willing to do whatever is necessary to win, there are plenty of enticing factors to seduce a free agent.
Tucker had the line of the afternoon when asked if her prefers to play a physical or finesse game? "You look at Kyle Korver and the display he put on".
"I haven't thought about it". The most dirty, rugged, nasty-looking stuff you've ever seen in your life.
