Students versus masters: Raptors ready to take fast pace to Warriors

"That will be a deciding factor on how long I play but right now I feel great, so we'll see", James said.

The Toronto Raptors got their opportunity to shine in the spotlight and well, they did not disappoint beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 133-99. James missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer. Everybody talked about the three-point thing, I don't think he did it for them, I think it was more for him but it feels good to shut people up. Ball contributed 10 rebounds and six assists as Los Angeles snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Spurs at Staples Center since April 2013, the last time the Lakers made the playoffs. Jaylen Brown scored 21 points and Marcus Morris had 19 with eight rebounds as the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics stretched their National Basketball Association winning streak to seven games.

If the Raptors' rout of the rival Cleveland Cavaliers was a clash of styles, then their game Saturday against the visiting Golden State Warriors will be more like the students taking on the masters.

James stepped out of bounds with 1.4 seconds left after the Cavs were able to orchestrate the switch they wanted with Darren Collison checking LeBron.

It was a stunning twist, coming nearly exactly nine months after the Cavs rallied from a 26-point deficit on the same court to beat IN in the playoffs. The Blue & Gold scored a season-low 12 points in the opening frame - going just 6-for-22 from the field and committing six turnovers - and faced a 22-point deficit heading into the second quarter. Oladipo made the free throw to give IN an 84-82 lead with 7:53 to go, a costly point. "I can find just as much enjoyment in passing the ball as well". They led Game Three of their First-Round series against the Cavs by 26-points. Love went over the 7,000-rebound mark during the game and now has 7,007.

Cleveland has a respectable 26-15 straight up (SU) record, but they have a hard time covering the spread (12-27-1 against the spread (ATS)). Cleveland played well after that but IN got kept it with an arm's length.

Despite averaging 19 minutes a game, Thompson is only averaging 5.3 points and 5.7 rebounds a game.

Coming off its 28-point embarrassing loss to the Timberwolves, the 34-point loss to Toronto was even worse.

Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade did not play for Cleveland due to rest.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue knew his team had slacked off before when opponents were missing key players.
