24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The Raptors looked as defeated as an NBA team could be during Game 2 in Cleveland, but with their season basically on the line in Game 3 the Raps showed the world why they were the second seed in the East as they defeated the Cavs 99-84. Led by a 32 point performance from DeMar DeRozan, the Raps played their hearts out in this one both offensively and defensively.
Bismack Biyombo set a playoff franchise record as he grabbed a beastly 26 rebounds. The ACC was lit in this one, and things got chippy near the end of the first half as LeBron James went down, resulting in technical fouls being handed out to Ontario natives Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph. James finished with 24 points and 5 assists, passing Jason Kidd for third all-time in playoff assists as the Cavs were handed their first loss of the 2016 postseason.
