Cavaliers vs Raptors Game 2 scores and updates

Getty LeBron James shoots as Jonas Valanciunas defends during the Cavs' Game 1 win.

The biggest disparity in Game 1 came from the 3-point line as the Celtics shot 17-35 (48.6%) and the Sixers shot just 5-26 (19.2%). It was only once they got into the fourth quarter that things started to turn sour for them. Its formula for returning to the NBA Finals was always clear: Have a good enough defensive game plan to avoid bleeding points like it did at times during the regular season, and be totally unguardable on the other end.

"We came out with a sense of urgency", said Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue afterward.

Unfortunately for the Raptors, James insisted the Cavs aren't satisfied with their 2-0 lead. Game three will be played Saturday night in Cleveland. Who knows if there was something psychological going on with the Raptors last night, but we do know that they need to figure it out if they hope to regain their footing and have a chance at taking out the Cavaliers in the playoffs once and for all.

Nearly as if they'd been toying with Toronto, the Cavs hit another gear in the third quarter led by James and Love, whose 24 points in the quarter equalled Toronto's scoring. "We've been in tough situations before". The wine and gold had their best game of the postseason offensively in Game 2 even though Korver only had five points, while hitting 2-of-3 shots from the field in 28 minutes.

Anyone who felt that the Raptors could take down the Cavs this year has been served a dose of reality in these first two games.

Love and James combined for 74 points.

Before the last bucket in Cleveland's lopsided 128-110 win in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal, the hashtag LeBronto had surfaced.

The ugliness continued in the fourth, as the Cavs opened the quarter with a 7-0 run to take an 18-point lead.

According to Odds Shark, a sports betting information website, National Basketball Association teams that fall behind 0-2 in a seven-game series are 19-273 all-time.

J.R. Smith shot 2-for-3 from three-point range and finished with 15 points while George Hill had 13 points on 5-for-8 field goal shooting. Love responded with his best game of the post-season, scoring 31 points and adding 11 rebounds. "We'll find some answers whether we change the lineup, whatever it is, to keep the offence moving, keep the game moving, and keep the pace going".

When the halftime buzzer sounded, Love had already scored 18 points, tying him with Raptors guard Kyle Lowry as the game's leading scorer through two quarters. Acknowledging that longevity, it was one of the more spectacular displays of shot-making skill we've seen from him.
