LeBron not claiming 'mental edge' over Raptors despite stunning game two display

And rubbing salt into the Raptors wound, James credited Toronto coach Dwane Casey for forcing him to becoming a better player after the 2011 National Basketball Association final that saw the Dallas Mavericks, whose defence was orchestrated by then-Mavericks assistant coach Casey, beat James' Miami Heat in six games. The wine and gold had their best game of the postseason offensively in Game 2 even though Korver only had five points, while hitting 2-of-3 shots from the field in 28 minutes. Several guys around the league gave it up for one of the best games of the year from LeBron. He keeps missing three pointers whether they are contested or not. A timeout less than two minutes into the second half by Toronto Coach Dwane Casey is what the Raptors hope will stop the bleeding, but this is the doomsday scenario for the home team: down 0-1 in the series, giving Cleveland no resistance at all defensively and looking tight. The Cavaliers shot a sizzling 59% from the field which included an 11 for 26 mark from beyond the arc. No Cavaliers player other than James had scored 20 points this post-season; they did what they did before Love came to town. Kyle Lowry chipped in 21 points for the Raptors to go along with eight assists.

"That's kind of what won the game for us", Lue said of Cleveland's big third quarter.

There are still many games left to go in the series potentially.

The two got into it twice as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors went at it during Game 1 of the second round. "'I'm fine. What's he going to do?,' said Perkins, who stands 6'10" and weighs 270 lbs, with a smirk.

As has been the case throughout his career, James has logged a ton of minutes this postseason - a trend that continued when he played a game-high 47 minutes in Game 1.

In Game 2, LeBron was back to his dominant self. Combining to make 30-of-49 (65 percent) of their shots, the Cavs' top-two scoring options were virtually unstoppable while helping the Cavs score 128 points Thursday night. Toronto has gone 0-5 at Cleveland over the past two postseasons, losing by an average margin of 24.2 points per game. Furthermore, while Toronto was able to shoot over 50% in game two, their offense has been very inconsistent. Surrendering 38 points in the second quarter after just 19 before that is not a recipe for winning. Toronto's confidence is very low while the Cavs have all the momentum heading back to their home court.

With the Raptors getting crushed in their own building by a familiar foe, there will surely be noise about them being the "same old team" that was swept by the Cavaliers a year ago.

The company also says automation has improved safety in its facilities, an issue that has dogged the company in recent months. Model 3 production surpassed 2,000 cars per week only in the past month or so, which is far behind Musk's initial timeline.

"I think considering the circumstances, we definitely stole one", said Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue.

James' strong showing was nothing new to the fans at the Air Canada Centre, as the Cavs have now squared off with the Raptors in each of the past three postseasons.
