Cavaliers take Game #1 over the Raptors

The Cavs trailed for all four quarters of regulation in their Game 1 matchup with the Raptors, but once they finally jumped ahead, they didn’t look back. Behind LeBron James’ triple-double (26 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds) and a surprisingly effective performance from Cleveland’s supporting cast, the Cavs took a 1-0 series lead with a 113-112 overtime win at Air Canada Centre. Kyle Korver (19 points) and J.R. Smith (20 points) caught fire from the outside, and Jeff Green (16 points, team-high plus-10) and Tristan Thompson (14 points, 12 rebounds) gave the Cavs a significant boost off the bench.

Tim Neroni said, “A great comeback win from the Cavs, led by LeBron with a triple double himself.”
