DeMar DeRozan Says Raptors Would Have Won If They Had LeBron James

The Cavs will wait for the victor of Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards, who are locked at 2-2 in their series after the Wizards won 121-102 on Sunday. Korver had 16 points, including 16 in the second quarter, while Deron Williams and Channing Frye each had five points. The entire series could have been considered a "shooterpalooza".
"The 3-point line is definitely deadly now and the more shooters you have on your team, the deadlier you can be", he said. That's a staggering 102-point difference and truly disconcerting for the Raptors, who made 159 field goals to the Cavs' 158. The call to San Antonio could be loud this summer, but Toronto should be able to offer Lowry more money.
So, if it's not a rebuild, how do they retool knowing that the Cavs are not going anywhere anytime soon, LeBron is not going anywhere.
The series shifts to Boston for Game 5 after the latest two contests followed familiar scripts.
Reshaping its roster to be more in vogue is still not enough to challenge the Cavs.

With Russell Westbrook out of the playoffs, LeBron James is now the current points per game leader at 34.4. He was in uniform for Game 3 but did not play and was scratched from Game 4. "It's gong to take a Herculean effort to beat them".
"People say, 'Oh, you're over 30, '" Lowry said. "And now here goes Kyrie".
Celtics centre Al Horford said: "We just turned the ball over a lot". The way he's been playing is phenomenal.
Wherever Tucker happens to play during the 2017-18 season - and Toronto remains a possibility even amid all this uncertainty - the team that acquires him will be better. "When we're playing with pace, that's when we're the most unsafe".
His primary assignment, LeBron James, may have scored 35 points on 11-for-22 shooting (including 5-for-12 from deep), but P.J. made things harder on The King than we've seen anyone else do at any other point in this series. If that series goes seven, they will have nine days off. "We understand how important it is to come in and get a win and get rest". "I will be opting out, and that's as far as I've gotten". Time, everything, but we didn't. "You don't know. If Kyle didn't get hurt, do we win (Sunday), do we win Game 3, maybe". I want to just get better, I want to have fun, I want to win a ring.
But now that the season is over, a part of Tucker will play the what-if game and what-could-have-been game had the Raptors had more time to familiarize themselves once Tucker and Ibaka were acquired, how Toronto's fate may have been altered had Lowry not hurt his wrist and then his ankle in Cleveland. However, getting swept in the second round by the team you've had in the crosshairs all season doesn't do much to boost confidence.
