Sore ankle keeps Raptors G Lowry out of starting lineup

Tucker did it on occasion in Cleveland, but this has to come from all parts of the roster.

"We knew we were coming to a hostile environment, we knew they were going to give us everything they had, no matter who was in the lineup", James said.

If Game 1's 19 point performance was bad, then Game 2 was just terrible.

"Kyle is our driving force, our point guard, our leader".

The Cavs can complete the sweep of the Raptors on Sunday afternoon at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Lowry was getting more treatment Saturday, adding that he's not "giving up hope" of being ready to attempt playing in Game 4.

NOTES: The Cavaliers went 10-0 to open the playoffs in 2016 and, with their Game 3 win, are 7-0 to open the playoffs this season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are taking a 2-0 series lead to Toronto, after blowing out the Raptors in the first two meetings. "We wouldn't be talking about it", James said.

The remarkable workload that LeBron James has endured over the last seven seasons has been unlike any other in National Basketball Association history and the greatest player on the planet remains as hungry as ever to continue winning titles. "He should spin the ball, he's comfortable, we can't let him be comfortable, we have to make him uncomfortable", Lowry said.

James Harden led the Rockets with 43 points after scoring just 13 in Game 2.

"Something we've done is knock down 3s all year", Casey said. "Right now they are doing what they want to do to our defence and that is unacceptable and we can do better".

The Cavs stretched their advantage to nine points, but the Raptors fought back and a finger roll from Ibaka tied the game three-and-a-half minutes before halftime.

He worked out a few hours before Friday's game, and was on the court during warmups but limped back to the locker room before the national anthems.

"I don't think the officials saw that part of it", Casey said of Thompson's shove.

"He just couldn't go", Casey said. "He wanted to. The doctors and trainers and medical people were just telling him he shouldn't try to go because he was in so much pain".

What time does the Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers Game 2 Start? James hit four free throws on either side of a 3-pointer to put the Cavs up 97-80 with 6:20 left.

Coach Tyronn Lue opened the fourth period with Tristan Thompson, Deron Williams, Iman Shumpert, Korver and James.

The Cavaliers led 28-24 after the first quarter.

The Cavs did just that in an area where it counts the most - rebounding, demolishing Toronto on the boards, 49-25.

James reached his first NBA Finals in 2007 as a 22-year-old with the Cavs and after being swept by a veteran San Antonio Spurs team declared that he had to be "10 times better".

LeBron James scored 35 points to top the Cavaliers, who take a 3-0 lead into Sunday's Game 4 of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal. He suffered the same sort of poor outing during the first half of the Bucks series, but rebounded well and finished strong.

The Raptors have lost three straight for the first time since the All-Star break. Toronto couldn't buy a three-point basket, going 2 of 18 on the night.
