Cavs Pummel Raptors
The Toronto Raptors found out that LeBron James just so happens to be their "Indominous Rex" (Jurassic World reference). The Cavs put a beat-down on the Raptors 115-84 to take a 1-0 series lead.
"I think don't think we have complacency in our minds," James said. "We have a goal, and our goal is not nine wins. I've won nine games before. I've won 14 games before. We will face some adversity."
Kyrie Irving led the way with 27 points on an efficient 11-of-17 shooting from the field. James added 24 points of his own as the Cavaliers shot 55.4 percent from the floor.
"We've got to come out the gate with that mindset, being aggressive like we usually do, and I think we didn't try to do that until later on in the game," Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said .
The Cavaliers are now 9-0 in the post-season thus far this year. The 31-point win was the largest margin of victory in Cavaliers post-season franchise history. A major reason for their success is the health of all the key members of their team. Last season at this time, the Cavs were without forward Kevin Love and would soon lose Kyrie Irving in the Finals.
Game 2 will be played in Cleveland on Thursday night.
