Jazz heading home looking for 2-1 lead on the Rockets

The Cavaliers have won nine straight playoff games against the Raptors dating back to the 2016 conference final.

The Cavs were 79-65 up with just one quarter left to play in Saturday's encounter. The series is now 2-1 in favour of Golden State, but the Pelicans have another home game and anything can happen in New Orleans where they are undefeated (3-0) in the postseason. Toronto tried doubling James in the backcourt, but he took Kevin Love's in-bounds pass and drove the length of the floor, sidestepping left past Onunoby just over halfcourt and throwing up the runner from 12 feet out. "Maybe even before that".

"Oh, man, he was wonderful", James said of Love, who has begun to find his form after disappearing for much of the first-round series against the Indiana Pacers. They stormed to 59 wins with the fifth-best defence in the National Basketball Association as measured by points allowed per 100 possessions, and stout play on that end of the court has been a staple of Casey's squads over the last few years.

Horford posted 13 points and six rebounds and point guard Terry Rozier had 18 points. After some tight hugs, he was back atop the scorer's table - just like he was after his last-second three-pointer won Game 5 against IN in the previous series - and celebrated a win that was up for grabs.

Comparing the shot to a three-pointer, James also explained the reasoning behind proceeding with the play from the Cavaliers' side of the court instead of taking a timeout.

Through the first two rounds of the 2018 Playoffs, the 14-time All-Star is averaging 34.8 points on 55 percent shooting to go with 9.6 boards and 8.8 assists per contest.

LeBron James and the Cavs stunned the Raptors 113-112 in overtime in Game 1 of the series on Tuesday night and then took the second game comfortably, 128-110 on Thursday night. The Raptors eventually trimmed their deficit to 97-95 with 2:52 remaining thanks to Anunoby's 3-pointer and Lowry's two free throws.

Kyle Lowry and OG Anunoby did what they could to try and will them to a comeback win but LeBron James had different plans.

The Cavs raced and mobbed James and minutes later he was back up on the scorer's like after a game-winner in opposition to in final round - to celebrate a win that has been up for grabs. The Cavaliers later finished the half with a 16-2 surge to take the 15-point lead into the break.

"You've got to win four games to get out of a series and it starts with the next game, so I will be as sharp as I was tonight".

"A big stretch, a huge stretch for us", coach Ty Lue said of Love's scoring barrage. "But it's not long enough is the way I want to describe it". "Those guys are finding ways to help me and get me open and I think everybody's just making the right plays, whether it's me or somebody else". "We've got to give credit to (the Cavaliers)". "That's all you ask - in a hostile situation, the other team playing really well, putting ourselves in a position to win".
