Donald Glover,

The Cleveland Cavaliers are -6.0 over the Raptors in game 4. Cleveland took Games 1 and 2 on the road, winning 113-112 Tuesday night and following that up with a 128-110 romp Thursday.

The incident came at halftime of the eventual 105-103 loss, which put the Cavaliers up 3-0 in the second-round matchup.

Coming into this series, the Raptors expressed confidence that this would finally be the year that they solved the Cavaliers.

Toronto had their chances to get back in the series but failed to do so.

Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri has been fined $25,000 for walking onto the playing court at halftime of Saturday's Game 3 to verbally confront game officials, National Basketball Association president of league operations Byron Spruell announced Sunday.

Regardless of the calls, Toronto is now just one game away from elimination after arguably the best season in franchise history. The sharp-shooting Korver will continue to get open looks in game 4, as the Raptors try to swarm LeBron. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc and 80.6 percent from the free throw line. Through the first 3 games however, it has been the same story for the Raptors. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 23.8 points and 3.4 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 18.8 points and 8.3 assists.

Cleveland stumbled through their first round series with IN and was taken to the limit. The Raptors will cover, but the Cavaliers will advance. But nearly immediately after the game, the conversation wasn't about the shot-but about if LeBron is better than Michael Jordan.

The Cavaliers have struggled shooting the ball in the postseason as they hit only 45.3 percent as a team from the field. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.8 percent from the free throw line.

James added seven assists, six rebounds and three steals in his latest stellar effort. Larry Nance Jr., who got at least 13 minutes in each of the seven games against the Pacers, did not play and has logged just three minutes in the series.

"It's my job in the fourth (quarter) to close it", James said in a post-game interview with ESPN.

The Cavaliers appear to have enough support around James to finish this series in 4 games. Toronto hasn't been able to figure out a way to stop James, and DeRozan let the team down in game 3. The Raptors are now in a situation that 129 other National Basketball Association teams have been in: down 3-0 in the postseason.

In yesterday's other second-round play-off game, the Boston Celtics also took a 3-0 series lead with a 101-98 overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Toronto has been eliminated by the Cavaliers in each of the previous two season.

"We could play so much better, but it was a gutsy win". Now the question is whether he regroups to get Toronto back in the series or not.

The Raptors are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 Conference Semifinals games, 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games.
