King James Breaks More Records As Cavaliers Beat The Raptors

Updates with new lead. Toronto's lead is two games over Boston and the two teams play each other Wednesday up north.

Stevens suggests that he is not consumed by the pursuit of first place. CJ Miles is the Raptors' leading reserve (10.1 ppg), but he didn't play against the Cavs in March.

"We haven't found ourselves defensively", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said.

The Celtics, however, also dropped their game against the Bucks at Milwaukee on Tuesday, 106-102. Kyle Lowry only chipped in 13 but also had five rebounds and five assists.

On the road, Toronto is 21-17 ATS with 21 overs and 17 unders.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he did not know whether Rozier could play Wednesday.

"We're not excited", Casey said. "We told him to get ready for the playoffs and that we'll take care of everything else".

It was tough to take anything away from that game, other than LeBron James (35 points, 17 assists, no turnovers) is insane good.

If the Raptors want any chance of representing the East in the Finals, they're going to have to build a head of steam capable of bulldozing through the likes of the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. He was held to just five points and three assists by Cavaliers guard Jose Calderon on Tuesday.

John Wall had nearly as many turnovers (eight) as points (nine) and a bad minus-18 rating in an ugly 120-104 loss to the Houston Rockets.

"It changed the game", he said. "They were very physical". Boston's previous low was six, set twice. With George Hill missing the game due to an ankle injury, 36 year-old Jose Calderon started and scored 11 first-quarter points on flawless 5-5 shooting. Austin Rivers scored 18 points for Los Angeles, including the go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute. Baby steps, I say. Who's open? OK, it's me, let's take this shot.' So that's what happened. Toronto controlled the quarter and extended the lead to 20-points at one point, 66-46. Terry Rozier picked up only two points shooting only an FG% of 11.1% throughout the game.

Even undermanned, Boston's bench was able to neutralize Toronto's, outscoring the Raptors' lauded second unit 35-20 on the night. "I made the first one".

It shouldn't have come as a huge surprise as the Cavaliers went into the game with a 22-9 record with Calderon as the starter. How they get through some marquee games this week will go a long way in determining if they reach those goals. G Shane Larkin (illness) did not travel to Toronto. Detroit was without star forward Blake Griffin (bruised right ankle) and the 76ers were missing center Joel Embiid (concussion, orbital fracture).

MarShon Brooks scored 25 points for the Grizzlies.

If Boston fans were hoping their team could hit "reset" during halftime and play a better game in the second half-they were left disappointed.

Kyle Korver (Day To Day - Foot): Korver is listed as questionable for Tuesday's (Apr. 3) game against the Raptors. That was when the Cavaliers unleashed their 21-4 push that gave them their largest lead of the half at 56-40 at the 3:33 mark. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free throw line.
