James, Cavs complete sweep of Raptors

But many Raptors fans remember how LeBron James gave everything he had and ensured that the Toronto Raptors would not advance to the next round of the playoffs.

Point guard Kyle Lowry insists he hasn't thought about his future with the Toronto Raptors.

The Cleveland Cavaliers rolled through the Toronto Raptors, completing a clean sweep Sunday with a 109-102 win. "I just watched San Antonio-(Houston). I want to make sure my family is happy", said Lowry, a father of two young boys. "You've got to match tit-for-tat to beat them". "Well, I would, but I'm not this time". But they collided with Cleveland earlier than expected, and the mood around their Biosteel Centre training facility Monday was one of unrealized goals.

"When LeBron is shooting the 3 ball the way he is, at the rate he's shooting it, they're hard", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. A healthy Lowry would have given the Raptors one home victory at most.

Turnovers: 10 (James 6, Thompson 2, Frye, Irving).

In a closeout game, Lue said, "he tries to go as far as we need him in that fourth quarter". "But we can't just look back now and feel sorry for ourselves".

The only clear-cut decision came from Lowry, who confirmed he will decline a $12 million option for the final season of the four-year, $48 million contract he signed in July 2014. "You see the talent, and once you put the talent, and then, the experience, and then, the mind, you know you really start to see what he's capable of doing". "And I'm talking scouting, I'm talking our medical department, I'm talking everything", he said. Four. That'll be my fourth time. It's going to be my ninth time in 14 years. Which I will do.

If this was the last game Tucker ever plays in a Raptors uniform (please no), it will stand as his best. 'We're playing for pride.

The White House reportedly found out about Rosenstein's decision to appoint a special prosecutor with less than an hour's notice . Trump also has a habit of seeing political events through a prism of his own image and how they affect his reputation.

Ujiri said he'll lay out numerous scenarios for the team's ownership.

"Ifs and buts and candy and nuts", Casey said, with a slight smile. The Wizards led by as many as 26 and have outscored the Celtics (237-191) in the two games in D.C.

Game 4 is Sunday in Toronto.

"It just sucks", Tucker said. "So I commend all my teammates". And once again I'm part of a team that's been able to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.

DeRozan mentioned King James twice and the first time was him offering a little incentive to anyone capable of stopping the ruler of the East.

"We gained something that goes way beyond basketball". For me, it's just an incredible shot because I'm already lined up to the rim and my elbow's already pointed, so when I get it to that area where it's on my hip, it's just nearly a straight shot.

Fred VanVleet came in to give Joseph the odd break while Patrick Patterson was on the floor for 10 minutes but with his back against the wall, Casey found six guys he thought matched up well and stayed with them. James, 32, plays until June every year - unnecessary regular-season minutes could make a difference later in the year.

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 think we picked a team to go against that was a buzzsaw".
