Cavaliers sweep Raptors, 76ers stay alive

Cavaliers sweep Raptors, 76ers stay alive

With a dominating 128-93 win in Game 4 last night, the Cavs are headed to the Eastern Conference Finals for the fourth straight year.

"We have one more game", said Casey, perhaps stating the inevitable. He gave C.J. Miles his first start and put Serge Ibaka back with the first five after using him in a reserve role in Game 3. James entered Game 4 with 348 points in these playoffs, the most through 10 games by any player since Michael Jordan (354) in 1992.

Three games into their Eastern Conference semifinal against Cleveland, the Toronto Raptors have yet to find the answer to the Cavaliers.

Toronto will need a bounce-back performance from their top scorer, Demar Derozan, who pulled a disappearing act in Game 3, tallying only eight points and racking up more turnovers (three) than assists (two).

21 -After seemingly being out of the playoff rotation prior to Game 4, Cedi Osman not only led the reserves with 21 minutes, but he made the majority as well. He's averaging 18 in the series after scoring 26.7 points per game in the first round against Washington.

That shooting slump carried over to the Raptors series, with Hood shooting a miserable 1-of-9 from the floor in just 39 combined minutes across four games. Teams that trail 3-0 in a best-of-seven series are now 0-130 in the National Basketball Association. The stats were good, but the extra level, the total domination of the game at both ends of the court, the look in his eye, it just wasn't there."Every time we come to the playoffs he has that edge", coach Tyronn Lue said after James' stunning, buzzer-beater of a shot that won Game 3 against the Raptors. 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.

"Tie game, down by one or whatever the case may be, I live for those moments", said James, who also practises for those moments.

Tiger Woods , who shot 3-under 68 to get to 1-under, walked off the course frustrated for the third consecutive day. Day, who won the Farmers Insurance Open in January, said he feels like he's close to the form he had at No. 1.

"Everybody wrote us off. but at that time guys just made up their mind - 'We're not going to quit". You never know. But you always think about the fact that you want to give yourself the best shot every single night and there's some plays that didn't always give us the best shot.

Casey said his team played with "our trousers on fire defensively", but struggled to take care of the ball on offence. "Don't try it at home", he told reporters.

With their effectiveness, the starters help lead the Cavs to shoot nearly 60 percent from the floor and 46 percent from three-point range Monday night.

The incident occurred during the Raptors' 105-103 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday at Quicken Loans Arena.

James was also kind in victory, saying the Raptors were "a very well-balanced, put-together team this year".

This could mark the third straight season that the Cavs eliminate the Raptors.

During the regular season, the Cavaliers topped the Celtics two-out-of-three times and split the four-game season series with the 76ers.
