NBA Eastern Conference Finals: Cavaliers crush Raptors in Game 1

The Toronto Raptors was completely outclassed by the Cleveland Cavaliers on the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals at 115-84.

The Eastern conference features two teams who did not share a path to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Raptors, after 21 years, has finally reached the conference finals, but that’s after a number of do-or- die games in the round one and two of the NBA Playoffs. And we have the Cleveland who are rolling through the East with ease.

The first six minutes of the Eastern Conference Finals Game 1 looked promising for the visiting Raptors as the Cavaliers appeared to be a little rusty after an eight-day layoff.

This wasn’t the three-point demolition the Atlanta Hawks saw but this just proves that the Cavs are more than just a three-point shooting team. It helps when your opponents are so worried about that skill that they leave the lane wide open.

The Cavaliers regained the momentum and kept it rolling in the second quarter. Lebron James, who scored 27 points didn’t miss a shot in the entire first half while Kyrie Irving, led the Cavaliers with 27 points, played his best game against Toronto.

The Cavs outscored the Raptors 33-16 in the second quarter to take a 22-point lead into the half.

The Raptors tried to make it respectable in the third, but the Cavaliers were too much. They led 95-67 at the end of three and took care of business in the fourth.

DeMar DeRozan had 18 points to lead the Raptors and Kyle Lowry, who set high expectations after going off for 37 in the Game 7 win over the Heat, was cold as ice in Game 1, adding just 8 points.

The Cavaliers will have a chance at taking a 2-0 series lead in Game 2 on Thursday in Cleveland and they look like they may never lose another game.
