Tyronn Lue cautions Cavs against overconfidence in Game 4

  • NBA Rumors: How Cavs Will Address Rodney Hood's Refusal To Play Vs. Raptors

With Kyrie Irving gone, and a number of role players in his place, Love is by far the Cavs' second-best player.

It was so much more. Make James beat you single-handedly: A similar philosophy nearly worked for the Indiana Pacers in the first round, when the Pacers pushed Cleveland to seven games by ensuring just one Cavalier not named LeBron finished with a series scoring average in double figures.

Toronto has made it past the second round just once under Casey despite being a top-four seed all five times.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised that LeBron has worked on his game so much that he's logged considerable practice time on wrong-legged, hang-in-the-air-forever, bank shots at the buzzer. "And the only way to get that feeling off you is to go back out there, help your teammates and get a win".

Before the playoffs began, the Cavaliers, who are finally meshing after months of upheaval, were 38-0 when leading after three quarters. The Raptors had a double-digit lead in the second quarter and James wasn't dominating the floor.

"We're hard on ourselves because we couldn't get it done".

Taking one shot at a time.

North Korea hits out at Trump administration over recent rhetoric
North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. Other sites that have been touted as a potential location for the summit are Sweden, Switzerland and Mongolia.

James has done it at both ends in the waning moments of games all season for a team that has only four holdovers from its 2016 title squad. This was James's 23rd straight series victory against an Eastern playoff opponent.

James finished the night with 38 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists, adding yet another astounding statline to his unmatched career in the National Basketball Association postseason.

The statistics, though, are only part of it. With the Raptors looking to level the series in Game Two, LeBron scored 43 points, before nailing the buzzer-beater that gave Cleveland a win on home court in Game Three. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan just didn't have it Monday night. So as everyone was burying my teammates alive throughout that first-round series, I just continued to tell them, 'Listen, we can't win without each and every one doing their job and being as great as they can be, ' and I continued to preach that.

Golden State, helped by an early-morning text by Draymond Green to Kevin Durant, again look in control of the series. He's just done it so many times this year. "He made a tough shot".

And as rumors swirl about Casey's future, Lue said Toronto would be foolish to do anything rash.

Kyle Lowry said after the game that he understood the decision. They will play either the No. 2-ranked Celtics or the No. 3-ranked 76ers. "It's their will to win and making everyone better".

"We wanted to remind the team of how good a season they have had to this point", Brown said afterwards. When Cleveland relented to All-Star guard Kyrie Irving's trade demand and shipped him to Boston, it left the team without another proven scorer capable of closing. We're here to watch and enjoy this mini-reunion of former Cavs forward Richard Jefferson, J.R. Smith, and LeBron James. But there's been a palpable feeling that change is afoot since the Raptors fell to 0-2 in the series. He doesn't have that same luxury in Cleveland, but it's not stopping him. DeRozan found himself on the bench for the last 14 minutes of Game 3 as he watched his team go on a run, almost getting them back in the series.
