Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors, third semifinal game, the Cavs traveled to Canada won the two games on the road and return to Cleveland with the desire to get 2 more victories to sweep the Raptors. It was not easy for Toronto Raptors to lose at home, apparently the Raptors will be eliminated by the Cavs.
Cleveland Cavaliers: Nothing is perfect.
LeBron James may not have the best team available, the Cavs still need important players, but that’s the only thing he has done is for James and the other starters to try harder and work harder to win the games.
The first two games in Toronto were an example of this, the first game ended slightly in favor of the Cavs after suffering and they won in OT 113-112, while the second game was a clear victory 128-110 for the Cavs.
In both games LeBron James scored a significant number of points, especially in the second quarter, James scored 43 points, Kevin Love 31 points and J.R Smith 15 points, they were the top three of the starters. LeBron’s performance has increased as they advance in the playoffs.
At home the Cavs score an average of 110.1 points per game, but the defense is not doing a good job and allows up to 109.2 points to the visitors, the field goal is at 47.9% and the three pointers with an effectiveness on 36.1% despite to have Korver and Smith experts in three pointers.
Toronto Raptors: The record of the regular season has not helped.
All the starters of the Raptors scored less points in the second game, the figure is alarming, we are talking about DeRozan scored 22 points less than in the first game against the Cavs, Lowry -18 points, Valanciunas -11 points and Anunoby with Ibaka – 10 points. We do not know what was the reason why the performance of the raptors was so low, but they could not win the first game even though DeRozan scored 40 points.
The effectiveness on the road is 59.1% with 26 wins and 18 losses, the Raptors have already lost 2 times at the Cavs ‘home during the regular season and now the danger of being swept in the Cavs’ home increases. The average points on the road for the Raptors is only 110.5 points per game.
The Cavs can win this game, in fact if LeBron James and the other Starters manage to take advantage in the first half they will surely seal the fate of the game, as the Raptors have never recovered in the second half at the Cavs’ home.
