Tuesday served as another reminder for the Toronto Raptors that the Cleveland Cavaliers continue to have their number.
In a game where the Cavs starting point guard wasn’t even in the starting lineup, a former Raptor, Jose Calderon utterly outplayed Kyle Lowry.
Calderon finished with 19 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists, as opposed to Lowry’s stat line of 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists.
Lowry attended the NCAA final in San Antonio on Monday, leaving many fans wondering if the point guard is truly focused on the task at hand for the Raptors, clinching the number one seed in the East Conference.
Kyle was open and honest with his performance on Tuesday saying, “I played terrible, that’s probably part of it, just a bad game overall for me.”
As always when these two teams meet, LeBron James delivered big time, posting 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists, including this beauty of a drive against OG Anunoby.
It wasn’t quite as impressive of his stat line the last time these two teams met on March 21, but it propelled Cleveland to the victory nonetheless.
Toronto remains one win shy of matching their franchise record of 56 wins (2015-2016 season) and will have to regroup quickly as they are set to play Wednesday against the Boston Celtics.
Game time is scheduled for 8:00pm from the Air Canada Centre and can be viewed on TSN 4 and 5.
