There’s no time to celebrate, it’s off to Game 5.
The Raptors held serve last night in beating the top seeded Cavaliers 105-99 to even the NBA’s Eastern Conference Final at 2.
And for the first time in this year’s playoffs, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan were dynamite… in the same game.
Lowry scored a game high 35 points while DeRozan chipped in with 32, helping Toronto improve to 8-and-2 at home during the playoffs.
But the Raps are 2-and-6 on the road in the post-season and are 0-and-3 in Cleveland this year.
If the Dino’s hope to beat the Cavs — something no one thought was possible just a few days ago — they have to steal a game in Cleveland.
Doing so in Game 5 tomorrow night would be great, given than Game 6 is back home at the ACC.
And it would also save us from biting off all our nails if these two teams go to a Game 7.
There was no sweep by the Cavs, who’ve now lost 2 in a row.
The Raptors were not dispatched in 5 games like I thought they would be.
It’s now a best of 3.
And the way these two teams are going at each other, it’s really anyone’s series.
