Twitter account tweets out 139 angry emojis after LeBron James game-winner

Even if IN put up more of a fight against the Cavs, the Raptors played better IN the regular season. But it wasn't enough. "I never want to be over there watching".

"We have one more game", said Casey, perhaps stating the inevitable. "Basically our season's on the line".

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.

Kyle Lowry did his bit to try and help Toronto win the game, as he finished with 27 points with three rebounds, seven assists, and two steals, but the rest of his teammates didn't really step up to the mark to help secure the result, and it cost them dearly. Moreover, his 348 points scored through the first 10 games of the playoffs are second behind Jordan (354) for the most points over that stretch. Then James raced down the court and delivered the dagger.

However, Toronto started 2 of 11 from the field and the Raptors were quickly down 12 and seemingly in big trouble when DeRozan picked up his second foul and went to the bench. But, taking the inbound pass from Love, he had little in his way as he headed to the Raptors end and, with Anunoby desperately trying to get in his face, put up a floater that banked in off the glass.

Casey wished to lure James on the ultimate play, however he glided by defenders at "100 miles per hour". At 33, he continues to dazzle with a seemingly endless arsenal. So does Smith's ability to make plays for others off-the-dribble through dribble penetration in the halfcourt or running the break in transition.

The difficulty of the shot was up for debate after the game.

The Raptors tried to adapt to the style of play that's supposed to expose the Cavaliers defence, instead, it has pushed James to take his game to another level. He added that Zillgitt should not try the shot "at home".

It was the fifth buzzer-beater of James' post-season career. That hasn't been the case in the playoffs and it was the same story in the first half. "I've seen him shoot that shot, that game-winner, countless times when he's messing around in shootaround and practice". But they are still left amazed.

"I ran out of words a while ago", said Korver, struggling to describe James' latest heroics.

16 - His buzzer-beater will be all that's remembered, but we can't forget about James' impressive fourth quarter as well.

"We enjoy it", Lue said. The Cavs scored 18 points off those turnovers, and they won by two points. Anunoby made a 3-pointer with eight seconds left that tied the game.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers are now just one win away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals once and there's no surprise who has been leading the way. They have a 9-0 series record when up 3-0.

Toronto had a brutal opening, trailing by 12 in the first quarter before clawing its way back. He wasn't the reason we lost. "So I'm looking at where he's going".

It was more of the same in the third.

Casey and team president Masai Ujiri both showed their displeasure at the officials during the game.

At morning shootaround, James reflected on the fadeaway jumpers he took in Game 2, and hinted that not every made basket carries the same value, especially when it comes to demoralizing an opponent.

12/1/2 - He may not be the star point guard that Cleveland is used to having since LeBron came back, but it's not a coincidence that the Cavs now hold a 3-0 series lead with George Hill back as the starting point guard.

Kevin Love finished with 21 points and 16 rebounds.

Love's performance was All-Star worthy, but he can't go shot-less in the fourth quarter as the Cavs' second-best player. Toronto did a good job protecting the ball in the 2nd half and promptly came back into the game. With limited time on the clock, Lebron drives to his left, his only option his weaker, leaps with one leg, calibrating his shot while in the air.

"Rumble young man, rumble", he said. So that IN series really helped us out going forward.
