Fear the Newsletter: The Cavs are up 2-0 on the Raptors again

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Playoffs-Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs, just like last year against the Raptors, are up 2-0 after a 125-103 win.

LEGEND HAS IT: The Cavs are off Thursday, but will travel to Toronto ahead of Friday's Game 3.

ALL DUE RESPECT: Spurs 121, Rockets 96 as the series is now tied 1-1.

Tonight's games: Celtics-Wizards Game 3 with Boston leading 2-0. Jazz-Warriors Game 2 with Golden State leading 1-0.

JOB WELL DONE: Kyrie's Game 3 kicks were inspired by 'Grease'. Kyrie is also getting comfortable. Plus, an interview with Canton Charge head coach Nate Reinking.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. Today's show recaps the Cavs' Game 2 win.

CROWN: FiveThirtyEight's Chris Herring on why the Clippers' demise isn't Chris Paul's fault. The Step Back's Andrew Tobolowsky on the inherent nature of playoff basketball. Ethan Sherwood Strauss' last ESPN piece is a banger on Steph. The Drive & Kick podcast on Isaiah Thomas' big Game 2. And this NYT feature on South Sudanese refugees thriving as hoops stars in Australia.

That's it for today. Drop any questions or concerns to christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk again tomorrow.
