  • Cavs host Raptors in regular season rubber match

Kyle Lowry scored only five on 2-of-11 shooting.

However, with a run of good form, James is hoping everything comes together as they look to win a second National Basketball Association title in three seasons.

On Tuesday night, the Raptors vs. Cavs live streaming online and televised game coverage will be available as fans watch the two Eastern Conference contenders square off.

All five members of the Cavaliers' starting lineup scored in double figures, led by James, who picked up a double-double with 27 points and 10 rebounds, while also handing out six assists.

"Every single one of them is extremely important", said DeRozan.

The Celtics, however, also dropped their game against the Bucks at Milwaukee on Tuesday, 106-102.

Even having the league's strongest bench won't impact the outcome of games as much.

According to Calderon, his success comes as a by-product of opposing defenses concerning themselves with preventing James from taking over games, especially the Raptors, who have lost to the Cavaliers in each of the last two postseason tournaments and surrendered an average of 29.3 points per game to James this year.

No one is denying the Raptors have had a special regular season, with them on the verge of setting a new franchise record for wins.

The impact of Toronto's second quarter surge was not lost on their head coach Dwane Casey.

"We got four guys you know from our championship team, myself, J.R. (Smith), Tristan (Thompson) and Kev (Love)".

Marcus Morris led the Celtics with 21 points, and Greg Monroe had 17 and eight rebounds.

The Cavaliers (47-30) host the Toronto Raptors (55-21) Tuesday in a big game for both teams. Boston scored 80 in a January 18 loss to Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia 76ers extended their winning streak to 12 games with a 115-108 triumph over the Detroit Pistons. Boston's previous low was six, set twice.

"It's good for us", Casey said.

And then: "I'm gonna flip everything to Nova, y'all, you know", he said, smiling the whole time. Anunoby and Ibaka have both looked better and more mobile since - the result of some much-needed rest - which offers some cause for encouragement.

However, even if Toronto does manage this, the doubts won't go away; and they shouldn't do.

The Cavs made nine of their first 13 3-point attempts in taking a 56-40 lead with 3:33 left in the first half. DeRozan scored eight points in the third as Toronto took a 67-53 lead into the fourth. Their weakest areas are steals per game (#16), three point percentage (#16) and offensive rebounds per game (#15). G Shane Larkin (illness) did not travel to Toronto. Nor did his backup Shane Larkin, who missed his second straight game because of the flu.

The Celtics shot 3 for 22 from 3-point range.

The home team won all four meetings in the series this season. The Wolves are 8-8 since he was hurt and remain in a fight to reach the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. "You're looking for five guys that are going to compete and we did". The Toronto Raptors are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free throw line. The Raptors also shot eight free throws against Atlanta on December 29.

Toronto ranks seventh in points off turnovers per game (17.4) while Cleveland ranks 15th in points off turnovers allowed per game (16.1).
