Toronto Raptors star point guard Kyle Lowry said he'll be a game-time decision for Friday night's playoff matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Drake had a front-row seat to Toronto's Game 3 loss to the Cavs. On the other hand, the Raptors shot 50 percent in the first half in total, but what stands out is that they shot 22-35 (62.8 percent) from two point range.
But expecting anyone to come back from a badly sprained ankle in just 48 hours was probably not realistic from the get-go. He was listed as active but spent the night on the bench. But time and time again, DeRozan or Lowry sub Cory Joseph (4 points, 2-of-12 field goals) would find open shooters only to see them misfire. The lead continued to stretch, as the Cavs locked down the Raptors on defense and the lead continued to grow, slowly ballooning from a 2 point lead to a game-high 23 point lead as the quarter progressed and quickly put the game out of reach for the Raptors.
- In 2007 at the appropriately named Palace, King James scored 48, including 25 straight and 29 of Cleveland's last 30 in Game 5 to beat Detroit in the Eastern Conference finals. He scored 20 points but spent the fourth quarter in the locker room icing his ankle. The team fared surprisingly well, going 14-7 in his absence. "I was surprised when he came back out, but they were telling me the best thing for him to do was to continue to play, because if it cooled off it would really be bad".
Eventually - as it pretty much always is when the Cavs play - it became the LeBron James show.
In six games this post-season - all wins for the Cavs, he is averaging 34.2 points on 56.6 per cent shooting. Unfortunately, you will be needing an authentication with your cable provider should you want to watch Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers Game 3 live stream online.

Will Power brreaks IndyCar Grand Prix qualifying record
Today's race ran caution-free, the first in IndyCar since Long Beach 2016, and was nearly entirely dictated by pit strategy. The INDYCAR Grand Prix is set to kick off at 3:50 p.m. after a full day of racing from the three lower classes of cars.
"You work all year to go against the champ in a boxing match".
"I don't know, man", said James, who is 19-0 when leading a series 2-0. "To beat the champ, you have to throw punches". "We just tried to make it tough on him and weather the storm". Tristan Thompson got in the face of Valanciunas after the Lithuanian center dragged James down to the court during a third-quarter skirmish. It's possible James could pass the G.O.A.T., if he makes it all the way to his third straight Finals and plays at the same level.
The morning after one of the worst losses of his National Basketball Association career, DeMar DeRozan couldn't wait to face Cleveland again.
He stayed true to form as he shot 12 of 23 from the field and 13 of 13 from the free-throw line. That meant DeRozan would need to step up in a big way, especially after his Game 2 egg that saw him score five points on 2-of-11 shooting.
The Raps trailed 28-24 by the end of the quarter, and Delon Wright - not Lowry - was the point guard subbed in for Joseph. Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving each finished with 16 points apiece, with Love picking up a double-double with 13 boards. The Raps got just nine points from their bench. They headed into the locker-room at the break up 52-49.
After sailing to a first-round sweep of the Pacers, the Cavaliers were supposed to be heading into choppier waters in an Eastern Conference semifinals matchup with the Raptors.
