Raptors PG Lowry will opt out of final year of contract

"There's desperation at their end and desperation at our end".

23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts to a call by an official in the second half of Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Toronto Raptors during the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Air Canada Centre on Sunday, in Toronto, Canada.

"That's what he's here for", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of Korver. "When he's hitting the shot like that, they're very hard to beat", Casey said. We can't just pinpoint not making shots. The Raptors, playing without injured point guard Kyle Lowry, led by three points after the first half. It was the best game out of the series, but knowing the Cavaliers were up 3-0 kind of ruined any exhilaration there was.

"They have good players, even without Kyle", Lue said. "At whatever position I'll play, I'll bring the willingness to win because I don't accept losing very well". "I think nowadays, a lot of people want to see Golden State-Cavs".

"Honestly, I wouldn't BS you guys".

Unfortunately for the Cavaliers, there won't be a mediocre, good, or really good team waiting for them in the NBA Finals.

The Raptors have firmly hit a ceiling, and given the age of their core group - and impending free agents - no easy answers lie ahead to the question of where they go from here. The Raptors took their first fourth-quarter lead of the series but couldn't avoid their fourth straight loss.

The Raptors took a 93-92 lead with 6:38 to play when Serge Ibaka made a free throw to complete a three-point play. Additionally, Irving scored 27 points on 10-of-24 shooting to go along with nine assists, five rebounds and four steals. "It's not just given to you, you have to go out and earn it".

"We're trying to be progressive thinkers here", he said.

LeBron James is just a year older than Lowry and will probably outlast them all.

Kevin Love added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Cavaliers. In addition to signing Ibaka and Tucker, they need to be aggressive in free agency in order to lock up some quality three-point shooters. They're the defending champs for a reason. "This is, they say, where legends are made", James, a three-time National Basketball Association champion, said on Friday in Toronto where his Cavs beat the Raptors 115-94 for a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semi-final. "It's going to be a long summer".

Boston led by 11 points at one point in the second quarter, but it was 48-48 at the break.

The Rockets never trailed and used hot 3-point shooting to pull away in the third quarter. P.J Tucker had 14 points and 12 assists in his first career playoff start. He's also notched five double-doubles, including a 41-point, 13-rebound, 12-assist triple-double in Game 3 against the Indiana Pacers, and is averaging 32.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 9.0 assists this postseason. Four. That'll be my fourth time.

The Cavaliers completed their inevitable sweep over the Raptors on Sunday, a series that was the ideal background music for cleaning up your apartment or doing the dishes.
