Cavs cruise, complete sweep of top-seeded Raptors

Cavs cruise, complete sweep of top-seeded Raptors

But LeBron James and the Cavs undid all the positivity of the regular season in four second-round games, prompting cries of "same old Raptors".

Cleveland entered the series after a tough seven-game test against the Indiana Pacers in the opening round.

"We wanted to remind the team of how good a season they have had to this point", Brown said afterwards.

At the team's end of season press conference on Tuesday, Kyle Lowry reflected on their campaign and didn't mince his words about how he felt.

"We have a long week where we can continue to get better, and we look forward to that, and we look forward to the challenge, whoever we may face, either through Boston or through Philly".

He wondered if the Raptors had won that game how differently the series might have turned out.

There will be no historic comeback.

By that stage in the game, the damage had already been done by a Cavs side up 3-0 and determined to finish off the series in style.

"The regular season doesn't matter", Lowry said. LeBron still has many chances left for him chasing Jordan as LeBron could win more championships or accolades in order for him to surpass Jordan. "We set the tone early". Well, we might just find out Wednesday night in Game 5.

Their historic season came after president Masai Ujiri called for a "culture reset" last off-season.

'Rebel' judge declined the SCBA invite for farewell function
As a member of the collegium, Justice Chelameswar was a signatory to its recommendation to appoint Uttarakhand Chief Justice K.M. It also said he was from Kerala, which is already represented, and that that there were no judges from Dalit backgrounds.

James arrived at Quicken Loans Arena three hours before tip-off wearing a baseball cap that said: "Don't Trip". "We see them. It's not's like there's no door to get out of the room".

The number one spot to land LeBron is the Los Angeles Lakers, where James hopes to finally solidify his legacy on one of the greatest franchises in National Basketball Association history.

"All three games have presented different plays that would have to be done at certain points of the game to get over the hump", veteran C.J. Miles said prior to Monday morning's shootaround.

James went to the podium for his post-game interviews wearing a black hat that simply read "Don't Trip". Against Indiana in Round 1, Love, at just 11.4 points, was the only Cavs player besides LeBron to average more than Smith's 8.6 per contest.

On Monday, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said it would be "absurd" for the Raptors to fire Casey.

From the start, James wanted to finish this series off and get rest.

They came close in Games 1 and 3.

Although very aware that the head coach is often the one to take the fall for such playoff failures, Casey went about business this week, having exit conversations with players and discussing their off-season steps for improvement. The run included the final 12 points of the half. It raised significant questions about how they'd fare against the first-seed Raptors, especially without home-court advantage.

It will be intriguing to follow along with the Raptors throughout the course of the offseason.
