The Toronto Raptors, down 3-0 and on the brink of extinction, may not have their point guard yet again when they play Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. James had 35 points, with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love adding 16 points. The Warriors now have a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference. He contributed 14 points on 4 of 6 from behind the arc. The Cavs lead 3-0 and no team has ever dug out of such a hole in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry told reporters Saturday he considers himself doubtful for Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday at the Air Canada Centre because of a sprained ankle.

That's how many consecutive playoff series in which the Cavaliers' superstar has won a road game, thanks to a 115-94 pasting of the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of this Eastern Conference semifinal.

Next Up: Game Four will be Sunday at 3:30 pm in Toronto with the Cavs looking to sweep the Raptors. That's the point disparity from 3-point range between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors in this series. Tristan Thompson added nine points and 12 rebounds.

The Cavaliers have had their way in the series. Meanwhile, the Raptors missed their first 12 three-point attempts until Norman Powell hit one with 3:10 left in the third quarter.
