Game 6 - LeBron 33 points, post-season high, Irving 30 points, Love 20 points and J R Smith with 15

Game 6 - LeBron 33 points, post-season high, Irving 30 points, Love 20 points and J R Smith with 15 points. A combined total of 98 points out of 113 points. This is completely a highly synchronized effort from Cavs. All top 4 are in sync, passing the ball, assisting each other and on few occasions taking a close look at the rim by dunking.

Raptors went cold in first 2 quarters, tried to come back in 3rd with Lowry firing long range shots. Lowry ended up with 35 points.

Lowry and DeRozan are the only two players to register double digits on the score board. All other Raptors became spectators for what is happening on the other side.

Biyombo and DeRozan are now officially free-agents unless they both want to be Raptors again. What Raptors achieved this season is really amazing. Everything is first.  Beating Pacers in the first round, beating Heat in the second round and reaching finals for the very first time in their franchise history.  For two games in Game 3 and Game 4, Raptors looked like legitimate contenders for the Eastern Conference Title. Their hopes faded away in Game 5 when Cavs got back into their rhythm and Love finally finding his rhythm.

LeBron playing in 6th consecutive NBA Finals shows his commitment to his game. Since 1966, he is the only player to do this so. What an amazing achievement and effort. Cavs still need 4 more wins to complete their goal and waiting for the outcome of Thunder and Warriors series.

Raptors now have one choice left. They can avoid a trip to Cleveland for Game 7. All previous encounters with Cavs at Cleveland ended in loses. Raptors can still make a statement by forcing Game 7 and leaving the outcome to Cavs!  

 


By half time, Cavs were up by 31. This single stat alone summarizes the entire game!  Raptors lost this game by half time but still had to wait for the next 24 minutes to make it official. Everything went wrong for Raptors from the very first quarter and they could not find a way from formidable Cavs defense.

Cavs again put the ball in Love’s hands and this time he did not disappoint. He ended up with 25, high score for Cavs and  followed by LeBron and Kyrie, each scoring 23 points.

A steal by Smith and Love’s full court (almost) throw to LeBron for a Dunk are some of the things demoralized the Raptors even more.  After the series is tied at 2-2, it turned out to be a mini series of best of 3.  Win 2 and take the Eastern Conference Title for 2016.  In this new context, Cavs are up by 1 and they made their statement and still have the Home Court advantage if in case series is headed to Game 7.

Lowry and DeRozan scored 13 and 14. Their combined score is just 2 points more than Love’s individual score. This is where Cavs defense excels. They can simply shutdown the main scorers of their opponents.  

First seed team is just 1 game away and Second Seed team is just 2 games away from the title. Go Cavs!

LeBron is not happy about the way Cavaliers are playing basketball. Inconsistency! Toronto Raptors

LeBron is not happy about the way Cavaliers are playing basketball. Inconsistency!

Toronto Raptors played very well too. Raptors played to win.

Lead changed 16 times and it was clearly a close contest. Scores were tied at 1st and 2nd quarters.

Cavs need to play a better game and they need step up defense. Other than LeBron and Kevin, no other player stepped up this time. Dellavedova's presense is really missing.
