LeBron James blows away Toronto as Cleveland advance in National Basketball Association playoffs

Raptors swept from playoffs by King James' Cavaliers

For the Cavaliers in Game 4, this stat was really a tale of two halves.

"They have good players, even without Kyle", Lue said. "This is, they say, where legends are made", James, a three-time National Basketball Association champion, said on Friday in Toronto where his Cavs beat the Raptors 115-94 for a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semi-final.

"I thought teams would compete a little harder", Green said.

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. If they do in fact complete their march through the East, waiting for them will in all likelihood be a fire breathing octopus of a team that equals Cleveland's prowess on offense and completely shuts down opponents on defense. "The way they were making shots, and they were well-guarded, you're going to have to score 117-118 points a night to beat them".

Channing Frye scored 10 points, and Irving had nine assists.

James absolutely dominated the Raptors in the second round, averaging 36 points on 48 percent three-point shooting. "You've got to go two blocks, but if there's traffic, it'll take you an hour to get somewhere that's two minutes away".

Thompson's indication that the National Basketball Association is "a man's league" did not sit well with James and, during that same press availability, Thompson said that "his feeling just got hurt" with regard to the soon-to-be Finals MVP.

But DeMar DeRozan isn't going to make excuses.

Serge Ibaka scored 23 points, while DeMar DeRozan added 22 and the Raptors took Cleveland to the last few couple of minutes before dropping a 109-102 decision to the Cavaliers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

"The 3-point line is definitely deadly now and the more shooters you have on your team, the deadlier you can be", he said. "It's tough, going in the summer knowing you got swept". All the while, Cleveland will be watching film, working on things they can do against either team, and getting some well-earned rest.

"They have good players, even without Kyle", Lue added. And once again I'm part of a team that's been able to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.

The Raptors led by as many as 11 points in the first quarter that ended tied at 28.

Technical Fouls: Defensive three second, 1:41 first; team, 1:41 first; Thompson, 9:47 second; Shumpert, 8:07 second.

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. The Raptors' lead was a 16-point deficit by early in the third quarter.

Tucker closed out the scoring in the third quarter with a 3-pointer from the corner to cut Cleveland's lead to 85-80.

The Toronto Raptors' season has come to an end - but they didn't go down without a fight. Lowry's absence in Games 3 and 4 was a factor.
