Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers – Game 3

NBA: 8.30 PM EST

May 05, 2018

Cleveland rolled to a second consecutive victory in the Air Canada Centre on Thursday night, leading by double digits most of the way en route to a 128-110 dismantling of the top-seeded Raptors. The Cavs were led by the two-pronged attack of Lebron James (43 points and 14 assists) and Kevin Love (31 points and 11 rebounds). The Raptors shot an impressive 54% from the field but couldn’t stop the Cleveland attack and were again victimized on their home floor.

With James getting so much contribution from secondary players in this series, I’m trying not to overthink this one. I expect Toronto to try to punch the Cavs in the mouth and make them play from behind early, but until they show that they’re capable of actually doing so, there’s too much value in the home team here.
