Cavs' LeBron James not concerned about fatigue coming into series vs. Raptors
02 May, 2018, 02:05 | Author: Kristen Mcgee
The Toronto Raptors and the Cleveland Cavaliers meet up in the postseason for the third season running, and for the second consecutive time at the Conference Semifinals stage.
The Cavs advanced to the NBA Finals, where they overcame a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven series to beat the Warriors, 4-3, and claim the first title for a Cleveland professional sports team since the 1964 Browns.
LeBron James has been tremendous throughout this series, but hasn't been able to finish off the Pacers yet.
Perhaps this year will be different.
I would like to credit myself as my intensity throughout the entire game somehow transferred to James nearly 600 miles away in Cleveland, but I knew that is not true.
Moments after nearly single-handedly hauling the ClevelandCavaliers to a narrow Game 7 win over IN on Sunday, LeBron Jamestold reporters through droopy eyelids that he was exhausted and wanted to go home.
LeBron averaged 45.0 points per over the last three home games of the series against IN and posted a triple-double IN the opener.
James posted his third 40-point game of the series in Sunday's decisive Game 7, a 105-101 win for the Cavs, finishing with 45 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists in 43 minutes.
For the seven-game series, James averaged 34.4 points, 10.0 rebounds, 7.7 assists, and 1.4 steals. James refused afterward to acknowledge that he had indeed been suffering from cramps - or even to use the word - admitting only that he had refused the team's suggestion to intake intravenous fluids during his locker-room visit.
Despite the Cavs ending the Raptors season the last two season, Charles Barkley is fully in the camp of the team from the 6ix.
Everything seemed to click for the Raptors this season. If James decides to post Anunoby up, the rookie could be in trouble, because he has allowed 1.00 point per direct post-up this season, which is below league average.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have eliminated the Toronto Raptors from the playoffs two years in a row. Last year it was in round two, the year previous it was the Eastern Conference Final. Defensively, he frees Kevin Love of the burden to guard the opposing team's center, something which looms larger in this series because of the width of Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas compared to the leaner tandem of Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis for the Pacers.
In the first round, James logged more than 41 minutes per game.
They probably won't even slow him much in this series, which tips off Tuesday night at the Air Canada Centre. Toronto limits threes by opponents as well as any team but Cleveland's offense just got George Hill back and figures to get better bench contributions from Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson. It didn't past year, when Cleveland swept Toronto in the second round. Thompson was big for Cleveland having 15 points and 10 rebounds over 35 minutes in what was his first start in 13 games.
Tristan Thompson surprisingly was in the starting lineup for game seven.
James has played alongside a superstar star like Dwyane Wade and Kyrie Irving in recent years.
