DeMar DeRozan hasn't made a three-pointer in his last 10 playoff games against the Cavs.
LeBron James is painting another masterpiece. Which is why the way that Cleveland swept Toronto with an untested lineup is so surprising for the Cavaliers and so disappointing for the Raptors. And for the second straight year, they make an exit without having a single victory over the defending Eastern Conference champions.
DeRozan: "Listen [to] what I'm trying to explain though, bro". "When we get stops, we're able to get out in transition and play with pace".
James had visibly developed a reported animosity toward Curry, as other stars like Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook felt his sudden rise into superstardom was undeserved, one that now seems to have eroded over time.
"For one thing, you have to stop letting him go left", Bryant told the Chris and Caron show with Chris Mannix and Caron Butler. "These playoffs will be in the back of our minds all summer".

Toronto coach Dwane Casey agreed that James was a big part of his team's problem. This is a DeRozan and Lowry production. "No matter what, I'm always going to have the utmost respect when it comes to coach Casey".
Lowry said Toronto had high expectations entering the postseason.
"I think we've just got to go out here and keep fighting, keep scratching and clawing", said VanVleet, who made his first career start in Game 3. "I'm glad we got a couple days (off)".
12/5/3 - The numbers won't jump out at you as you look over the box score, but George Hill dominated tonight and was one of the many reasons why the Cavs played so well.
On Monday night, the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers knocked out the Toronto Raptors for the third straight season.
This defeat came as more bitter for the Raptors, who did everything, including changing its style of play following last season, precisely to exact revenge with the Cavs only to come up short. again.
