Sore ankle keeps Raptors G Lowry out of starting lineup

We don't know. But we would much rather have him because he is the hub of our toughness, energy, all of the above.

"We couldn't get anything to fall for us and they turned it on offensively and ran away with it", said Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, who had a career playoff-best 37 points after scoring a career playoff-low five points in Game 2. No team in National Basketball Association history has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the playoffs and the Raptors are not about to become the first team to do it.

Game 4 is Sunday afternoon in Toronto.

"With our rebounding, especially with Tristan and Kevin, when they play small, we can pound the glass", Lue said.

"He just couldn't go", Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.

"You don't want to get swept", he said.

Had they got even an average night from behind the three-point line, the Raptors might now be a game away from tying this series up.

Cleveland won 10 straight to begin the playoffs past year, a streak that ended when Toronto beat the Cavs in Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

"We came in here (last year) and weren't prepared", Kyrie Irving said. Kyrie Irving also scored 16 while Kyle Korver had 14 points. These playoffs have once again affirmed James' title as the best player in the world. "We had some tough plays, turnovers (Friday) and, as I mentioned, they play well here at home, they really fight". "For whatever reason, it's escaping us right now".

All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry, who has?an ankle sprain, considers himself doubtful?for Sunday's Game 4 as the Toronto Raptors try to avoid a sweep against the Cleveland Cavaliers. "He was limping badly".

When James hit two more free throws with 7:23 left, Cleveland led by 12. "That stretch, right at the beginning of the fourth quarter is what got us".

DeRozan scored 21 points in the first half of Game 3 to lift the Raptors to a 52-49 lead at intermission.

James posted his 90th playoff game with at least 30 points, scoring 35 to go with eight rebounds and seven assists in 40 minutes. Over a four minute stretch, he nearly single-handedly turned a seven point lead into nineteen and the Cavs never looked back. Toronto lost three in a row from February 8 to 14.

Facing the end of their season, Casey said Sunday's game is about "pride".
