Cavaliers take 3-0 series lead over Raptors

LeBron James shoots against the Golden State Warriors in 2016

Alas that was not to be and the Raptors wound up on the wrong end of a 115-94 defeat and are now just a game away from a second four-game sweep in the past three years. They looked briefly capable of answering with a win after letting the Cleveland Cavaliers dominate them in the first two games of their Eastern Conference semi-final series.

Lowry, who missed 21 games late in the regular season after undergoing wrist surgery, is a vocal leader whether he's on the floor or the bench.

The result was a 115-94 victory for the Cleveland Cavaliers over the Toronto Raptors and a commanding 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals for the defending National Basketball Association champions.

The Cavs have are now 7-0 in the postseason this year and have won 10-straight playoff games dating back to least year's NBA Finals. After connecting on 53 percent from the field in the opening 12 minutes, Cleveland's touch went ice-cold as they hit on just 32 percent of their field goals in the second period.

While the Raptors were running out of gas, the Cavaliers went on a 20-3 run to take a 19-point lead.

"I don't dwell on the past", LeBron James said in a TNT postgame interview.

"DeRozan was awesome, he gave everything that he had", James said. "We knew they were going to give us their best shot. I was surprised when he came back out, but they were telling me the best thing for him to do was to continue to play, because if it cooled off it would really be bad". Despite going scoreless from 3-point range, Toronto led 52-49 at the half.

James was instrumental in the comeback, scoring 13 points in the final quarter.

"The production from our bench has to come in and give us a boost", Casey said.

Unlike in the games in Cleveland, the Raptors kept the Cavs from building a huge first-quarter lead.

Forward LeBron James scored 35 points as the Cavaliers topped the.

Obviously, the Cavs had so much more than Korver, who scored 14 points. The Raptors' DeMar DeRozan scored 37 points, but was unable to overturn a 2-0 deficit.

Houston's James Harden showed why is the one of the two favourites to win the NBA MVP award, scoring half of Houston's total (46 points) in a losing effort.

The Cavaliers were sloppy with the ball in the first half and they didn't rain down 3's as often as they did at Quicken Loans Arena in the first two games of the series. James scored 35 points in Game Three and now has 5,811 points to trail Jordan by 176 points.

The Cavaliers shot 13-for-23 from distance compared to 2-for-18 for the Raptors. They have no answer for James, and the Cavs keep finding different players to help their star glittering even brighter.

Charity Stripe: The Cavs shot 85.7 percent from the free throw line, hitting 24-of-28. Assists-Cleveland 15 (James 7), Toronto 17 (Joseph 6). Though Kevin Love was aggressive early on, the rest of the Cavaliers seemed bored with the Raptors. Ty Lue used this lineup briefly in Game 1 when that lineup wasn't knocking down shots and the defense wasn't good enough to make up for the lack of offense. Cleveland had just 15 assists, but had 16 turnovers. But Kyle Lowry was out with a sprained ankle, and his all-star backcourt mate couldn't do it alone.

Game 4 will be played Sunday afternoon in Toronto, with the home team looking down the barrel of elimination.
