The Toronto Raptors have their backs against the wall as they face elmination for the first time in the 2018 playoffs after a heartbreaking loss in Game 3.

Imagine if the Raptors were able to get by in Game 1 or tonight, this would be a different narrative but now down 0-3, the chances look rather tough.

Following a thrilling, buzzer-beating finish to Game 3, the Wine & Gold own a 3-0 lead over the Atlantic Division Champions after topping the Raptors, 105-103, on Saturday night.

Lue believes the Cavs are passed their bad habits from the regular season on defense, to the point where he said "I'm not going to keep talking about the regular season".

James scored 16 of the Cavaliers' 26 points in the fourth quarter, refusing to let Toronto complete the comeback.

"I told y'all in the in series, that mental clock of being a kid and telling myself "3, 2, 1" and making the noise of the net".

Cleveland, which led by as many as 17, found itself tied 103-103 with eight seconds remaining after the Anunoby three-pointer.

Why didn't the Raptors double-team James after they failed to trap him and force the ball out of his hands?

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal was just bounced out of the playoffs by the Raptors, but still had empathy for a team that lost to the most ridiculous of shots.

The 76ers needed a miracle and Marco Belinelli provided it as he nailed a hard fadeaway to tie the game at the buzzer and force overtime. None of those teams went on to win four straight and the series.

The three-time National Basketball Association champion managed to contribute 43 points on 19-of-28 shooting to go along with 14 assists and eight rebounds in Cavaliers' Game 2 victory.

One of the biggest changes for Cleveland is that they've shot better in this series after hitting only 43.1 percent from the floor in the seven games against the Pacers. It definitely sucks to be watching. we've got to give credit to those guys. "That's all you ask - in a hostile situation, the other team playing really well, putting ourselves in a position to win".

In that game, LeBron James buried an off-balance floater at the buzzer that sealed the Cavs' win over the Raptors and pushed Cleveland within a win of a conference finals berth.

"It's extremely hard, extremely hard", DeRozan said. Toronto attempted to trim the lead only to have Cleveland beat it back to lead by 14 going into the final quarter. Cleveland has seen the over go 4-1 in their last five on one day of rest, 4-1 in their last five overall and 4-1 in their last five against the Eastern Conference.
