Kyle Lowry opts out of final year of contract with Raptors

19 May 2017, 04:57 | Kristine Mills

Irving scored 11 straight fourth-quarter points to put the Cavaliers back in front.

James scored 35 points, Kyrie Irving added 27 and Cleveland swept Toronto, beating the host Raptors 109-102 on Sunday to give James his seventh consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference finals.

"When LeBron is shooting the 3 ball the way he is, at the rate he's shooting it, they're hard", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said.

The Raptors will continue to play without point guard Kyle Lowry, who missed Friday's 115-94 defeat with an ankle sprain. Or to wish that the grit shown in Game 4 had come earlier.

They're the first team to win eight games in a row over consecutive post-season runs.

"I thought we did things against Milwaukee we didn't do at the end of the regular season and I thought that would prepare us for the next series, which ended up as a totally different series". "I wouldn't BS you guys", Lowry told the reporters toward whom he's often been pugnacious and guarded. During each of the levels we wanted short stories to further flesh out his adventure, but the problem was where to place them. "The way they were making shots, and they were well-guarded, you're going to have to score 117-118 points a night to beat them". Turns out that James flipped it right on this guy when he said, "You mad or nah?" He's doing what his team needs for him to do. "I tried my best. but he made some tough shots". "A lot of our offense was on 'Bron's shoulders".

Gay, who played in 30 games this past season before rupturing his left Achilles' tendon January 18 against in, had informed the team he planned to opt out prior to the start of the season.

Serge Ibaka scored 23 points for the Raptors, DeMar DeRozan had 22 points and eight assists, Cory Joseph scored 20 points and added 12 assists, P.J. Tucker scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds while Norman Powell scored 10 points. LeBron James is arguably the best player in the league, he put up incredible numbers every night and seemingly has the ability to carry his team to a win. The disparity there in both volume of makes and accuracy isn't astronomical, but it's indicative of one of the most damning problems for the Raptors in this series: the Cavaliers hit more threes than they did. "It's going to be a long summer". And Toronto went up by 11 points - their highest lead of the series.

The Cavaliers started a 17-7 run while DeRozan was on the bench, opening a 51-41 lead with 3:46 left in the second.

Raptors: Toronto shot 10-for-29 from 3-point range. Wall had seven points, three assists and two steals during the third-quarter spree that featured eight Celtics turnovers.

The Rockets never trailed and used hot 3-point shooting to pull away in the third quarter. They trailed by only two after three quarters before the Cavaliers quickly blew open the game. Toronto kept it close, and took a 93-93 lead when Ibaka converted a three-point play with 6:38 left. From there, the Cavs were able to close the game out as Toronto could not close the gap the rest of the way.
