LeBron James says Cavs 'still got some work to do' vs. Raptors

James noticed Kyle Korver all alone in the corner, just in front of the Golden State bench.Korver missed the shot and the Warriors not only went on to win the game, but they also won the series while members of the Cavaliers organization spent the summer wondering "what if."Richard Jefferson, part of that Cavs team, was a guest at practice Sunday afternoon".

James said that being back in Cleveland, even if the Cavs still only had one day off in between Thursday's Game 2 and Saturday's Game 3, has helped his recovery process.

James finished with 38 points, seven assists, six rebounds and one ice-cold game-winner. I was able to hit a floater off the glass."In the other second round National Basketball Association playoff game Saturday, the Boston Celtics also took a commanding 3-0 series lead with a 101-98 overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers".

The Pacers were almost ready to celebrate after Paul George hit three free throws in OT to give the Pacers a 102-101 lead over the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but there was one problem. In the final sequence of the second quarter, LeBron James drove the lane and then found Kevin Love at the top of the arc for a wide-open three-pointer.

The Raptors are on their last chance to show some life in this series and will get their next chance on Monday, again in Cleveland, but James will be waiting for them. However, LeBron really has dominated the Raptors in the last couple playoffs and I feel that continues in this one. The Cavaliers could easily be down 2-1 in this series but relied on James making the clutch buckets when the team needed them the most.

Savills plc (LON:SVS) Ratings Summary as of May 6, 2018
Washington Cap Mngmt holds 0.52% of its portfolio in Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE:RF) for 30,000 shares. The stock was sold at an average price of GBX 418 ($5.83), for a total transaction of £418,000 ($582,984.66).

DeRozan had been the Raptors' leading postseason scorer coming into the game, averaging 27.8 points.

Serge Ibaka's basket was originally counted and then waved off by the referees, and the reversal was doubly painful as Love buried a three-pointer to put the Cavs ahead by 13. Love also moved into fourth place on the Cavs' all-time postseason scoring list, passing Brad Daugherty (782 PTS) and Zydrunas Ilgauskas (784 PTS).

Jeff Green has scored in double figures in four of the last five games, including every game this series. James hit a number of ferociously baffling fadeaway jump shots in the second half of the contest that made it look like he was playing against himself. "We have had slippages this year and we weren't happy about them and we can't be having slippages at this point". DeMar DeRozan, for example, is an All-Star and Toronto's best player.

Ibaka fouled out with 11 points and eight rebounds.
