LeBron breaks Toronto's heart once more

Zoom in a little closer, and you'll see the score was tied, which meant the game would merely have gone into overtime had James missed.

"Listen, tie game, down one, whatever the case may be, I live for those moments", he added. After some tight hugs, he was back atop the scorer's table - just like he was after his last-second three-pointer won Game 5 against IN in the previous series - and celebrated a win that was up for grabs. "Like I told y'all in the in series, that mental clock of being a kid and kind of telling myself, "3, 2, 1" and making the noise of the net, that "woosh" sound, I've been doing that since I was 6, 7, 8 years old". After all, he's been practicing it since he was in saggy Pampers.

But Toronto's defensive lapses haven't just been caused by the hazard of trying to stop a team led by James, a unique offensive force. "I told ya'll in the in series, that mental clock of being a kid and telling myself "3, 2, 1" and making the noise of the net". Playoff game? LeBron at the buzzer?

"Unbelievable play. He did it again".

"In the moment, it definitely sucks, especially on top of us losing".

"So the level of difficulty of that shot, it is very hard". "Don't try it at home". The oft-criticized center scored seven unanswered points over the next 1:51 as Cleveland eventually built its lead back to 16 before settling for a 79-65 advantage heading into the fourth quarter. "I just want to be out there helping my team, way more than anything". "We've got to give credit to (the Cavaliers)". It was just one of those nights for me, personally.

Casey wanted to trap James on the final play, but he went by defenders at "100 miles per hour".

"You know he's going left", a dejected Kyle Lowry said afterwards. Kyle Korver made four 3-pointers while scoring 18 points, George Hill had 12 points and Jeff Green tallied 11 for the Cavaliers.

Immediately after winning two games in Canada, the Cavs came dwelling and won a brawl using the Raptors, that simply can't even be at James.

We The North? He The North. One of the 129 teams at N.B.A. history to collapse behind, 3-0, not one has come straight back to succeed.

Iran Dismisses Israeli & American Allegations Over Its Nuclear Program
Iran has denied ever seeking nuclear weapons and accuses its arch-foe Israel of stirring up world suspicions against it. The three European countries that signed the deal have repeatedly tried to persuade Trump not to abandon it.

"Fight, that's what it feels like - fight", Lowry said of his mentality heading in Game 4. "Rumble. What else are you gonna do?"

For the first time this season the Toronto Raptors are in serious trouble.

The Raptors said they needed 48 minutes of defence and they came up with 43 minutes of it.

In the closing minutes, Ibaka was called for a foul on what appeared to be a clean block on James.

"In stretches we've played pretty good defence", Casey said on Saturday morning before Game 3.

Casey did not discuss his decision with DeRozan on the bench or after the game.

The Raptors went with a small lineup, giving Fred VanVleet his first career start in place of the slumping Serge Ibaka. If the Raptors' shooters can regain their hot shooting touch on Saturday they will be victorious. He's also aware of the narrative that his team has been mentally defeated by James. "It's disappointing. It reminds me of back in the days of having to get over the hurdle of (Michael) Jordan". Drake... Raptors... It's supposed to be fun but when the Raps get knocked down like that it can get depressing.

After winning two games in Toronto, the Cleveland returned home and did the same.
