LeBron James says confidence in Cavs teammates 'never wavered'

"He's been unbelievable. I think we are expecting him to win the game in the end when it's close".

"They were a well-balanced, put-together team this year", James said, praising a team he has tormented.

James was the only starter to see action, playing 4:22.

"Believe me, it's going to play huge dividends down the road", he added. "I was awful in Game 1 and they picked it up for me. But it's nothing that I had to say verbally".

Love, who struggled in the Pacers series, averaged 26 points with the Raptors.

James had 29 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds and showed off more than few party tricks with Cleveland turning the screw on the Raptors as the game wore on.

It's not that Love or Korver or J.R. Smith can't make a big shot in a tough spot when called upon, it's that James relishes the responsibility of being the one to take it - or defer if the situation demands.

"It's gratification but you're not satisfied, that's the way I like to put it, " he said when the Raptors clinched first place in the East with three games remaining.

What will really decide the fate of this roster in its current state - assuming Masai Ujiri and company don't decide to blow it all up and start over - is if DeRozan can ever become a clutch closer and if Serge Ibaka turns up more consistently, come next season's playoffs. We couldn't get it done. "That's insane. I mean, to change a team who they said played iso basketball, to being top (five), I guess, in offence and defence this year, the second-best record in the NBA - like, I don't believe that one bit", Lue said. "It's impossible for me to lose confidence in our ballclub no matter what the stakes are or where we're down because if I do that then where are we going to go from a team aspect?"James' numbers these playoffs put him beyond reproach in nearly any discussion". The Cavs star said he learned from the defences drawn up by Casey, then a Dallas assistant coach, in the 2010-11 National Basketball Association final won by the Mavericks over James' Miami Heat.

"I think we've just got to go out here and keep fighting, keep scratching and clawing", said VanVleet, who made his first career start in Game 3.

Korver acknowledged the tension that the Pacers series caused. "We had a lot of challenges, considering the dominance (Toronto) had in the regular season".

"We want to continue to improve". It has never been their time against LeBron and the Cavaliers in the playoffs, and after this time around, it's looking like it never will be. "I think it set the tone early that we were pushing".

But at this point, it probably doesn't matter to LeBron or his teammates. Would you fire Casey, or give him another season to (further) prove himself?

Hill said that team-centric approach has improved the mood in the locker room and on the bench. "But there's a different level and you saw it tonight".
