Toronto Raptors' Kyle Lowry misses practice with bad ankle


And it's time to pay up.

Toronto Raptors guard Norman Powell (24) dribbles between Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love (0) and forward LeBron James (23) in the second quarter in game two of the second round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.

And that's where the Cavs' focus is, or should be, with the series shifting to Toronto for Game 3 at 7 p.m. Friday.

"Just to have that feeling again, people counting you out, whatever negative comes with losing, being down two games, that definitely sucks and it's something that we're gonna have to use tomorrow night", DeRozan said. James scored 20 points, aided by hitting 10-of-13 at the free throw line. Four of those points came during the final quarter, when the Cavs had the game comfortably in hand. "But like I said, it's all a matter of how we respond to it, the good and the bad". I put a lot of work into my craft. "Last year I don't think we had the right mindset going into Toronto for Game 3 and 4 and they really handed it to us, got the crowd involved and it was just really loud in there". James now only trails Michael Jordan (5,987), the player to whom he has been compared since he was a teenager, for the most points in postseason history.

Cavs superstar LeBron James saw Lowry go down, saying the injury "didn't look that great".

But he's had five career playoff games with fewer than 10 points in his career, and the Raptors have lost all five. Only Jordan (109) has more.

The Rockets shot 11 for 34 on 3-pointers after going 22 for 50 in their 126-99 victory in Game 1 on Monday night. "I still don't. Even at 32". You can't let Channing Frye go out there and get (18) points.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey promised the Raptors "would be a different team tonight coming out".

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, who sprained his left ankle on the first possession of the third quarter but returned to play, did not practice Thursday. The Raptors shot 47 per cent from the field and just 29 per cent from three-point range in Game 2; the Cavs shot 55 per cent from each.

"I addressed it in the locker room after the game", coach Tyronn Lue said. "It's frustrating", DeRozan said.

Kyle Korver says the defending National Basketball Association champions, who hold a commanding 2-0 series lead in the East semis, have designs on sweeping the Raptors.

"It's about us", Casey said. "Until a team wins on another team's court, it's a series". " He then added, "I'm going to get treatment and get ready for Game 3". Now we have to go on the road with the same mentality". "We take our butt whooping and head home". A Game 5, if needed, would be Tuesday in Cleveland. James is also aware that the brewery produced and sold a bitter "Quitness" ale when he bolted Cleveland for Miami as a free agent in 2010.

Also, a source close to him said it would cost a company $2 million, at minimum, for the cardboard cutout of James holding the beer it used in a Tweet Tuesday for a promotion. Are the Cavs suddenly a way better team, or did they just decide that they wanted to send the Raptors - and those picking them to win - a message that they didn't feel the need to deliver to the middling Pacers previously?
