LeBron James: Cavs star makes HUGE revelation after dramatic Raptors win

It has meant nothing, and that is thanks to LeBron James.

When Anunoby hit the three to tie the game at 103, it seemed like it would be enough to give Toronto a chance for overtime. "I live for those moments", James said. After some tight hugs, he was back atop the scorer's table — just like he did after a last-second 3-pointer to win Game 5 against IN — and celebrated a win that was up for grabs. "Maybe even before that".

"I ran out of words a while ago", said Korver, struggling to describe James' latest heroics.

And if you thought the end of the fourth quarter was thrilling, the end of overtime was just as heart-stopping. Playoff game? LeBron at the buzzer? So it definitely sucks to be watching.

"The level of difficulty of that shot, it was very hard", he said with a smile. "Don't try it at home!" Once again, there were moments of inspired defensive play on Saturday night - DeRozan forced James into turnovers on two consecutive possessions at one point in the third quarter - but far too many easy Cleveland baskets.

Jaylen Brown came off the bench to add 16 points for the Celtics while Al Horford contributed 13 points and Australian Aron Baynes grabbed 10 rebounds. "I never want to be over there watching". It definitely sucks to be watching. we've got to give credit to those guys. It was just one of those nights for me, personally. "He split the trap and went 100 miles per hour down the floor". "We could play so much better, but it was a gutsy win". "He's a special player, we all know that". The Cavs made it a point to get Love involved in the playoffs as early and often as possible, and he responded by posting a total of 31 points and 11 rebounds.

We the North? He also North.

The Raptors tried to adapt to the style of play that's supposed to expose the Cavaliers defence, instead, it has pushed James to take his game to another level. Of the 129 teams in National Basketball Association history to fall behind 3-0, none has come back to win.

Officials had been warning residents all week they should be prepared to evacuate as an eruption would give little warning. Lava flows from the volcano have covered 48 square miles (125 square km), according to the US Geological Survey.

"Fight, that's what it feels like - fight", Lowry said of his mentality heading in Game 4.

For the first time this season the Toronto Raptors are in serious trouble. Toronto'd the East's best record, " the No. 1 seed, homecourt advantage as well as a Cleveland team that appeared very beatable.

It was the fifth buzzer-beater of James' post-season career.

The Raptors said they needed 48 minutes of defence and they came up with 43 minutes of it.

"Our goal in the timeout was to trap him and make somebody else beat us", Casey said. "You see him do it every single day (in practice)".

DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry had 5 fouls each in Game 3.

The Raptors tried to shake things up before the game, inserting guard Fred VanVleet into the starting lineup in place of Serge Ibaka and trying to go small. After a Raptors turnover, James found Jeff Green cutting to the basket utterly unmolested by any Toronto defender. He's also aware of the narrative that his team has been mentally defeated by James. I think more than anything, through these first nine games of the postseason, defensively we've been pretty good. Drake... Raptors... It's supposed to be fun but when the Raps get knocked down like that it can get depressing.

Cavaliers: Several Cleveland players watched the dramatic finish of the 76ers-Celtics game from their locker-room chairs before tipoff. Limiting James' production will be key in Saturday's contest. Derek Fisher (259) is the all-time leader, followed by Tim Duncan (251), Robert Horry (244) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (237).
