DeRozen and Lowry were held to 27 combined points. Bismack Biyombo, after having explosive rebounding in the past two games, only grabbed 4 rebounds. James sat on the bench the whole fourth quarter. If the Cavaliers win today in Toronto they clinch a spot in the NBA Finals, Cleveland now leads the series 3-2. The Cavs outscored the Raptors in the first quarter 37-19 and continued to outscore them in every quarter until the fourth where the Raptors scored 18 to the Cavalier’s 16. At halftime James, Irving, and Love had outscored the Raptors 43-34. Cleveland shot 47% from three. “They are a tough team here,” the Raptor’s coach said. “We came in here with a chance to do something special and we didn’t it done. They pushed us around and took what they wanted.”
