CLEVELAND, OH - MAY 7: Jonas Valanciunas of the Toronto Raptors drives around LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half of Game 4 of the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena on May 7, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. He gave C.J. Miles his first start and put Serge Ibaka back with the first five after using him in a reserve role in Game 3. James got plenty of points but the six-foot-eight Anunoby didn't make it easy.

Jason Smith declares that behind sorcery of Brad Stevens, the Celtics will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they will defeat the Cavaliers and advance to their first NBA Finals since 2010, possibly putting an end to LeBron's career in Cleveland once and for all.

In his last three home games, James has made two last-second shots and scored 45 points in a win-or-else Game 7.

When theCleveland Cavaliers barely squeaked by the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs, not many people gave them a chance against the top-seeded Toronto Raptors.

We have no idea if James can top what he's done the last 10 games, but we're certainly not ruling it out.

James holds the record with 18 straight playoff games with at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists.

There's no way around it: LeBron James is inside the heads of the Toronto Raptors.

"We showed a lot of maturity today and came up with a win", said McConnell, adding that the team was unfazed by the statistical improbability of overturning a 0-3 series deficit.

District magistrate Chandra Bhushan Singh said "there will be no internet services from 2 pm today to 12 midnight tomorrow". The University said portraits of all members of the student union of Aligarh Muslim University hang there.

The Cavs could have won by 40 points, but they benched the starters early in the fourth quarter and settled for a 35-point thrashing of a team that in the regular season won more games than the Golden State Warriors.

For the Cavaliers, Saturday's victory extended their current SU win streak to four games overall. "I was awful in Game 1 and they picked it up for me".

Casey, looking for a spark to save the season - and maybe his job - switched starting lineups for the second straight game.

Casey said his team played with "our trousers on fire defensively", but struggled to take care of the ball on offence. "He's super-athletic, super-strong. He can shoot the ball so I think those things are just going to continue to build".

Toronto coach Dwane Casey described his team as "emotionally drunk after game one and game three".

Practically speaking, the series was over when LeBron James hit the greatest bank shot in the history of bank shots to win Game 3.

"Defensively we're playing pretty good", Lue said. The Cavs didn't let up, pushing their lead to 30. Cleveland won just 50, but are now poised to eliminate the Raptors from the playoffs. Lue believes the Pacers prepared Cleveland to contend with Toronto.

James is first all-time in playoff points, third in assists and seventh in total rebounds.
