CAVALIERS REMAIN UNDEFEATED IN PLAYOFFS, IS IT OVER ALREADY FOR TORONTO?

Even after Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Toronto Raptors are already in trouble. The Cavaliers, lead by the force of LeBron James, dominated the Raptors 115-84 on Tuesday night. The Cavs looked to be a little rusty with the Raptors jumping out on a 9-2 run. but the Cavaliers would come back to take the lead and not look back. Kyrie Irving lead all scorers with 27 points, LeBron added 24 points on 11-of-13 shooting, six rebounds and four assists. DeMar Derozan lead all Raptors with 18 points while Kyle Lowry contributed only eight as the Raptors were just outclassed in their first conference final game in franchise history. 

 

WARRIORS RETURN WITH A VENGEANCE, EVEN SERIES AGAINST THUNDER

After an upsetting Game 1 loss at home, the Golden State Warriors bounced back to even the Western Conference finals at a game a piece. Lead by Stephen Curry's 17 point third quarter, the dubs dismantled the Thunder 117-84 in Game 2 on Wednesday night.  Curry finished with 28 points behind 9-0f-15 shooting and five of those coming from the three. The supporting cast of Klay Thompson and Draymond Green scored in the double-digits for the Warriors. Though Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were able to score, they just seemed bothered by the Warriors' frustrating defense. Game 3 is scheduled for Sunday in Oklahoma City.
