The Toronto Raptors handed the Cleveland Cavaliers their first NBA Playoffs loss. Will they be able to do it again at Game 5 on May 23 or will the Cavs strike back in revenge? HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this game so click to watch.
DeMar DeRozan, 26, and the rest of the Toronto Raptors did what no other team has done in the NBA Playoffs: beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. After LeBron James, 31, Kyrie Irving, 24, and Kevin Love, 27, tasted defeat for the first time, will Toronto serve them a second helping? Or will the Cavs make a meal out of the Raptors?
The Cavs must have left their basketball skills at the border because they were smacked down during Game 3 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Hopefully for Cavs fans, LeBron got the team’s swagger through customs because they’re playing in Canada again. Game 4 takes place on May 23 and the action kicks off at 8:30 P.M. EST.
So much for LeBron shutting up Drake, 29, during Game 3. The NBA superstar planned to “put on a clinic and show everyone why he’s the best in the game” a source close to LeBron EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. After losing 99-84, LeBron’s clinic turned out to be a morgue. Drake had a laugh at LeBron’s expense, telling King James that he’s “flying home for Game 4.” Now would be the time for LeBron to shut down Toronto’s biggest cheerleader. Cheer on the Cavs with an official Cleveland t-shirt.
It seems that low blows are the newest NBA trend. Not only did the Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green, 26, deliver another shot to groin of OKC Thunder’s Steve Adams, 22, but Cleveland’s Dahntay Jones, 35, also delivered a dirty shot on Toronto’s Bismack Byombo, 23, during Game 3. The Cavs will have to play Game 4 without him, as Dahntay was suspended by the NBA for one game, according to ESPN. Tell everyone how you think Toronto will triumph by getting an official Raptors t-shirt.
The Cavs will have to try to get past Bismack without smacking him in the groin. Toronto’s big man blocked four shots, grabbed 26 rebounds and pulled off seven screen assists according to NBA.com. “I think especially when it’s a physical-type game where the opposing team is into the guard or into the pin-down of the guy receiving the screen,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey, 59, said.
Will Drake get the chance to see his Raptors embarrass LeBron in person? Or will the Cavs remember how they were dominating the NBA Playoffs and wipe Drake’s smile off his freakishly clean-shaven face?
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers?
