LeBron James guides Cleveland Cavaliers to Eastern Conference finals

Raptors face serious questions down 3-0 to Cavaliers

The Eastern Conference Finals are scheduled to begin May 15 and 16, but could be moved up to May 13 or 14 depending on how long the series between the Celtics and 76ers last.

Lue said playing James with the Cavs' second unit helped negate the Toronto bench. And, there are still those who are not happy with what he's done, saying he has taken the team as far as he can.

James hugged his kids and rubbed their heads.

What would you do if you were in the Toronto Raptors' position?

The Toronto Raptors have been eliminated from the National Basketball Association play-offs by LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers for the third year running.

Still, the thought of it is nearly as incredible as LeBron's latest "Wait, did he just do that?!?" moment.

After dropping both of their home games to open the series against the fourth-seeded Cavaliers, Toronto rallied to tie Game 3 at 103-103 with just eight seconds on the clock - only to fall victim to a buzzer-beater by James.

Turns out, the Raptors still weren't good enough.

There will be no historic comeback. No NBA team has ever won a series after trailing 3-0.

"The easy thing to do is just to write us off, write ourselves off and say 'Hey, look we're not worthy, '" Casey continued.

You just don't expect it to go down like that. He said the last three seasons, the Cleveland Cavaliers is the reason they have not advanced in the playoffs and it has been rough for them to compete against LeBron and the Cavs.

James arrived at Quicken Loans Arena three hours before tip-off wearing a baseball cap that said: "Don't Trip".

The Cavs had one of their best all-around games of these playoffs after so many tight ones.

While Ibaka had five early points, Cleveland had success going straight through the heart of the Toronto defence - often unimpeded. In large part due to a thumb injury, the Cavs' All-Star big man was a non-factor for pretty much the entire first-round series with the Pacers, and stunk in Game 1 of this series. They won four of seven from a tough, talented IN team, followed by an overwhelming four-game sweep of the No.1 seed IN the East. Toronto is 0-2 all-time when it falls behind 0-3 (swept in 2015 by Washington and 2017 by Cleveland).

Play LeBron James single coverage as much as possible.

The Raptors must see him in their dreams. "But there's a different level and you saw it tonight".

Team President Masai Ujiri famously called for a "culture reset" following last season's Cleveland sweep of the Raptors. In fitting fashion, the Cavs closed out the series with a 35-point blowout, a near mirror image to that humiliating loss back in January. Well, we might just find out Wednesday night in Game 5. "We've got to get back to reality, come tomorrow, work our butt off this summer and get ready for the next stage". "We had opportunity after opportunity after opportunity". James told reports after the game that he was looking forward to the break.

"We were emotionally drunk after game one and game three", Casey said.

"It would be absurd to make a move like that", he said.

Derozan has yet to sink a three-point shot in the series in only nine attempts, despite respectable 22 and 24 point outings in Games 1 and 2, respectively.

James is first all-time in playoff points, third in assists and seventh in total rebounds.
