The Cavaliers never held a lead in statute of the series opener against the Raptors. However, the Cavs managed to secure the victory in overtime behind the remarkable play from professional basketball other than the franchise superstar LeBron James. Particularly, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver each scored five shots from beyond the arc and combined to 39 points. In addition to that, the Cleveland got 37 points from their reserve players. James messed around the floor of Air Canada Centre and got another play triple-double. Even Kendrick Perkins found a way to be useful in the Game 1 of the series.
The Raptors, on the other corner of the field, have to be a little low-spirited after being defeated a contest they controlled until the very end. The Raptors have now lost seven playoff games in a row against the Cavs dating back to 2016. Jonas Valanciunas recorded in the first 20-20 post season game in Toronto Raptors franchise history, but missed a number of shots around the rim in critical time. DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry managed to scored a combine of 40 points on 50 percent shooting, but waffled late. Additionally, the Raptors shot just 9-for-28 from threes. Toronto will have to be the more serious ball club when they take their home court tonight.
Now, that the Raptors will have to find a way to rebound from that destructive loss. The Toronto simply cannot be deprived of the first couple of contests of the series at home-court and expect to have a chance of making a history and advance to the Eastern Conference finals.
