Watch best of LeBron's epic night against Toronto in Game 2

Cavs sticking with Kevin Love as starting center, Tristan Thompson as reserve

Although I don't doubt the Raptors' facility to block traumatic experiences from creeping in their confused brains, I also think the Cavs are in their heads too deep to get over them.

Kevin Love recorded his second double-double of the 2018 postseason with 31 points (11-21 FG), a team-high 11 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 35 minutes during the Game 2 victory at Toronto.

"We just can't rely on just one guy being able to guard a guy like Kevin Love, it's a team effort", said Toronto's DeMar DeRozan. "We've been in tough situations before and sometimes when you're put in tough situations that's what brings the best out of you". That's what point we're at now.

As LeBron was having his way with the Raptors - scoring 43 points - ESPN's broadcast referred to the city as "LeBronto," sparking some creative online memes. LeBron had 27 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. Total Fouls-Cleveland 14, Toronto 24.

It was an all-too familiar script for a Toronto team that has been eliminated from the National Basketball Association playoffs the last two years at the hands of James and the Cavaliers, including a four-game sweep in last season's conference semi-finals. Raptors in 7 games. But Cavs closed to within three points at the half, and opened up the second half on fire. While Boston played well enough to get past the Bucks, the 76ers had much more firepower than Milwaukee.

The quarter was just seven seconds old when Serge Ibaka, who's been virtually M.I.A. for most of the post-season, turned the ball over.

"The way we played tonight is not us", coach Casey said. Wasn't just out there, flowing, playing the way that I play, which is free.

Unfortunately for the Raptors, James insisted the Cavs aren't satisfied with their 2-0 lead. Toronto would do their best to keep him out of the paint and force him to take jump shots. If Indiana could push the Cavaliers to the edge, surely the Toronto Raptors could finish the job-right? The Raptors now travel to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 in the hopes of extending the series and returning to Toronto for a potential Game 5 on Wednesday.

"One thing you have is pride, to go into Cleveland and play for pride", Casey said.

The Sixers' lead was completely erased midway through the third quarter, when Aron Baynes got a 3-pointer to bounce in and put Boston in front for the first time.

James practiced those fadeaway shots during the morning shootarounds, knowing the Raptors would give him those looks, according to's Terry Pluto.

Game 3 is Saturday in Cleveland at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Fed Holds On Rates, But Not For Long
So-called core prices, which exclude the food and energy sectors, rose 1.9% in March, up from 1.6% in February. The US Federal Reserve left its base rate unchanged last night amid expectations that it will rise next month.

The Raptors' collapse at the end of Game 1 probably doomed them, but it didn't have to. Love went 5-for-5 with DeRozan and Miles on him.

The white-clad capacity ACC crowd included Mitch Marner of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Olympic ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, and Drake, who was far less animated in his courtside seat than Tuesday's game.

The Cavaliers came into Toronto and took the first two games by force.

For the second straight game, James and the Cavaliers broke the Toronto Raptors' hearts.
