Despite high mileage, James showing no signs of slowing down

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James slam-dunks past Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka during the first half of Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series in Toronto Sunday

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James slam-dunks past Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka during the first half of Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series in Toronto Sunday

For the fourth game in a row, LeBron James scored at least 35 points, as the 32-year-old continued his dominant Playoffs form.

"After that performance, we need a culture reset here", said Ujiri, per Dan Feldman of ProBasketballTalk. Although Ibaka has played for three teams in the last year - being traded from OKC to Orlando last June and from the Magic to Raptors in February - the 6-foot-10 power forward is expected to command around $20 million a year. He believes he can, although he also felt it was a better question to ask upper management, not a player since he feels they will automatically say yes. "It's going to take a Herculean effort to beat them".

Lowry did, however, struggle with injuries, playing just 60 games in the regular season before missing the Raptors' final two games against the Cavaliers, and has already turned 31.

Next Up: The Cavs will wait for the victor of the Celtics and Wizards series.

"It doesn't matter to me", he said.

Cleveland will play the victor of the Wizards and Celtics series (probably will go seven games) in the Eastern Conference Championship.

It was a tough game for us. "One thing about Case, Case is one hell of a person outside of a coach".

Kyrie Irving added 27 points for the Cavaliers, including 11 in the fourth quarter, and contributed nine assists. PG Cory Joseph started at point guard for the Raptors with Lowry out.

"We needed that spark", James said. "At whatever position I'll play, I'll bring the willingness to win because I don't accept losing very well". "We understand how important it is, especially to come in and get a win and get rest".

Last year's NBA Champions defeated Toronto 109-102 to remain unbeaten in the Playoffs this season.

"If we had LeBron on our team, too, we would have won", DeRozan said. Wall, Beal and Markieff Morris combined for 34 points in the period.

With their backs against the wall, down 16 points early in the third quarter, the Raptors responded, taking a 93-92 lead with 6:38 to play. And you can win a lot of games with Lowry as your point guard.

Game 5 is Wednesday night in Boston.

Tucker closed out the scoring in the third quarter with a 3-pointer from the corner to cut Cleveland's lead to 85-80. Harden was superb throughout, recording game highs in points (28) and assists (12) to resuscitate an offensive attack that went silent as the Spurs rolled to victories in Games 2 and 3. He led the sad-sack Raptors out of the sullen Andrea Bargnani era, to places where they had never been.
