With a win tonight, the Cavaliers can put themselves in a very good possession to end their series against the Raptors early and have a chance to get some time off before the start of the Eastern Conference Finals.
For the Cavs, that may be the biggest benefit to winning tonight and perhaps wrapping up the series on Monday at home. After the grueling first round series against the Pacers, some time off for LeBron James would be good. Extra rest for Kevin Love and George Hill and J.R. Smith wouldn’t be bad either. Kyle Korver also wouldn’t say no to a few days off, I’m sure.
But first comes tonight and the series’ first game in Cleveland. Here’s how to watch tonight’s Game 3.
