With the Cleveland Cavaliers owning a 2-0 lead on the Toronto Raptors, tonight's Game 3 may be Toronto's last stand. A Cavs win won't end the series officially of course, but it puts the Raptors in a hole no NBA team has ever come out of. Someday, a team might come back from 3-0, but the odds don't seem great that a LeBron James-led team in the Eastern Conference will be the first team ever to end up on the wrong side of history.
In Game 3, look to see how the game unfolds. For one, let's see if Kyle Lowry can get going after struggling in the first two games of the series. Second, let's see how the Raptors decide to attack Cleveland. In Game 1, they tried to take a lot of threes. In Game 2, the started Luis Scola in place of Patrick Patterson and tried to play physical. Neither option worked.
Also note that a win would get the Cavs closer to another extended rest ahead of the Finals. The Warriors vs. Thunder series could very well go seven, so a Cleveland sweep might mean another week on the sideline for the Cavs.
