The NBA playoffs continue Tuesday with two exciting series. LeBron James and the Cavaliers continue their journey back to the NBA Finals, winning Game 1 in Toronto. And the Golden State receives a boost from Stephen Curry, who just returned from injury to lead the Warriors to a hard-fought Game 2 win over New Orleans.

2. The Raptors drop a close-game 1 against the Cavaliers

Toronto Raptors had a million chances to win the game 1 against a fatigued LeBron James and his struggling Cleveland Cavaliers. The Raptors were rested, home and confident, with a 13-point lead in the third quarter. They had a five-point lead going into the fourth quarter.

The Cavs responded where it really mattered, thanks to excellent rotations and defensive strategy. LeBron hit a jumper late in the fourth to tie things up. And the Cavs came ahead 1-0, pulling off yet another close-game victory with a 113-112 overtime win.

Tristan Thompson was energetic off the bench, racking up 14 points and 12 rebounds. LeBron hit a jumper late in the fourth to tie things up. James had 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists. JR Smith scored 20 points, Kyle Korver had 19 points, hitting five 3-pointers. Jeff Green had 16 points and played defensive center and point guard at times.

James had his least impactful game of the playoffs. He missed 18 shots in the game and he was 3-of-15 in the fourth quarter and overtime. “Shots weren’t going in for me,” said LeBron. “It was probably one of my worst games of the season.”
