National Basketball Association asks Raptors to tell rapper Drake to tone it down

He hit the 40-point threshold for the fourth time in these playoffs, made tough shots look routine and got the better of every single defender the Raptors threw at him. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 100.6 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 102.9 points on 48.2 percent shooting. His 31 points today are more than he had in his previous three games combined (28), and he went to the line seven times after not going there at all in the previous three games, too. The result was a comfortable 128-110 Cleveland win where the game was never in doubt in the fourth. Fizdale, 43, was one of the league's most highly regarded assistants for years, working under Erik Spoelstra with the Miami Heat. But Rockets, which led the National Basketball Association with 15.3 made 3s per game this season, probably won't shoot a dismal 10 of 37 from behind the arc again. He's here because he spaces the floor and shoots the three with a lightning-quick release and, over his career, he has been better at it than anyone else in a Toronto uniform.

Kevin Love has done nicely pitching in to help LeBron James and the Cavs in Game 2 against the Raptors. He scored 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to record the big performance that Cleveland has been hoping to see from him throughout the entire postseason.

Pat Keating, head traveling lad representing O'Brien, reported to Dubai racing officials that the son of Scat Daddy shipped well. Justify , who made his debut on February 18, was about as impressive as a 3-year-old can be in winning the Santa Anita Derby.

If the box score didn't already prove it, No. 23 was unstoppable in Game 2. Still, even James may be prone to fatigue following a seven-game Round 1 slugfest and a down-to-the-wire overtime game to start the Toronto series. The Celtics attempted 22 wide-open 3-pointers in Game 1, compared to just 12 for the Sixers. Throughout the regular season, no team had better point differential in the clutch than the Cavaliers (plus-80 in 154 minutes).

In Game 2, LeBron was back to his dominant self.

Kyle Lowry scored 18 points in 6 of 7 shooting from the field to lead the Raptors in a 63-61 halftime over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Furthermore, while Toronto was able to shoot over 50% in game two, their offense has been very inconsistent. Simmons did not play well in the first half, and sat most of the second half as T. J. McConnell took over the point for 76ers. Toronto's confidence is very low while the Cavs have all the momentum heading back to their home court.

Maybe not the fadeaway jumpers James kept making, each seemingly with a higher degree of difficulty than the last, but he was sure there would be something.
