◼️ LeBron James defeated 128-110 Toronto Raptors at home and 2-0 in the East semifinal series.
The Cleveland Cavaliers crushed the Toronto Raptors 128-110 in Canada to go 2-0 up in the Eastern Conference semifinal series of the NBA playoffs. The tie will move to Ohio next Saturday, and the Cavs will have the opportunity to define it at home to win the next two games.
In the first quarter, the locals started better and went to rest 63-61 up. But in the second stage, with the help of LeBron James, who contributed a monstrous number of 43 points, 8 rebounds and 14 assists, the visit traced the score with a third demolishing period to which they were awarded by 37-24. In the last ten minutes of the Canadian night, those led by Tyronn Lue held the advantage to stretch their difference in the series.
In the Cavs, four other players surpassed the two digits: Kevin Love (31), J.R. Smith (15), Jeff Green (14) and George Hill (13). In the Raptors, the striker was DeMar DeRozan with 24 points.
Although the Cavaliers didn’t have the best regular season, as they were fourth with a record of 50-32, LeBron demonstrates why he agreed to the last seven NBA finals and this year he is looking for the fourth consecutive with the Cavs.
