Cavs routed again as Raptors romp 133-99

The Toronto Raptors played their best game of the 2017-18 season on Thursday, and they did it on their biggest stage of their schedule so far - in a US national television broadcast against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Their next game is Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors.

The home team came out with a newfound fire to start the second half, scoring the first 11 points of the third quarter to trim the deficit to three points just 2:50 into the half. We got history. I already know that. During this quarter the Pacers had two separate 11-0 runs that helped them get right back into the game.

After losing to Minnesota 127-99 on Monday night, the Cavaliers fell by an even bigger margin.

Darren Collison scored 22 points and Victor Oladipo added 19 as the Indiana Pacers held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 97-95 last night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The last two efforts have been particularly alarming.

"I really don't know how to describe it", he said.

With one of the league's worst defense, the Cavaliers are a shell of the team which got blown out in last year's NBA Finals.

"We have enough talent here to get over that hump and make a lot of good things happen", Love said. But right now it's tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it is there.

"They're two good tests for us, two good games". Cleveland allowed a season-high in points and three-pointers in the loss. Frye started the second quarter and the Raptors' lead quickly increased from six to 12 before coach Tyronn Lue pulled him after four minutes.

With 76 total points from their bench players, the Raptors were able to complete the 133-99 win.

The Clippers led 106-92 early in the fourth before the Kings rallied to go ahead 113-112 on Bogdan Bogdanovich's layup with 2:10 remaining. The Kyrie Irving-for-Isaiah Thomas trade rocked the boat. "He's going to have to work out some kinks, but he'll be fine".

Among those was the Raptors' first meeting with the Warriors at Oracle Arena in the fourth game of the regular season as the Raptors led by five with 1:37 left only to watch Curry score a layup and then Durant and Curry bomb threes all in the space of 56 seconds to put the Raptors to sleep. Lowry participated in shootaround Thursday morning but is still too sore to play. Forward Serge Ibaka will return for Toronto after serving a one-game suspension for fighting Miami's James Johnson. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 25 points and 4.2 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 16.2 points and seven assists. G Iman Shumpert, out since November 20 with a knee injury, is also expected to miss Friday's game. David Blatt was sacked 41 games into the 2015-2016 season after getting off to a 30-11 start.

They're second only to Golden State in the National Basketball Association in net rating.

Early on, it seemed like Cleveland would walk all over the Pacers, getting a bit of revenge for their 0-2 start against IN to start the year.
