Wheels up.. ✈️
Watching Raps/Cavs on PVR. It appears LeBron has been tranquilized.
More Casey on fans: "When you put your hearts on the line and lay it on the line every night, fans will follow."
Casey on Raps fans in CLE: "It was like old-school soccer, travelling with the flag. We have the best in the league and our guys know it"
DeMar said it felt like a playoff game with all the Raps fans in house. "It was amazing, especially for me being here thru the tough times"
Reporter to Lou: "What did you see in the 2nd quarter that got you going?" Anonymous Raptor yells: "Will Cherry"
Raps to a man completely overwhelmed with the fan support. DeMar said the Raptors are taking over the Midwest. All very appreciative.
LeBron's 16-gm win streak vs Toronto is over. First Raps win vs LBJ since Oct 28, 2009 (DeMar's NBA debut), first on road since Apr 6, 2004
So, as it turned out the Cavs were "wet hens" for roughly 8 minutes before the Raptors dried them off in a hurry. BIG win. Raps now 11-2
The Raptors are 11-2. Who the hell cares about whether the Leafs salute the fans or not?
Pretty sizable contingent of Raps fans in Detroit last year but this is by far the biggest group I've seen in a visiting NBA arena
Raptors fans in attendance have turned heads here in Cleveland. Many Cavs staffers and media talking about them
Raptors about to beat LeBron on the road for first time since 2004
Raps up 14with 2 to go and the Raps fan contingent is starting the We want Bruno chant.
Raptors fans at The Q now chanting for Bruno.
Everything's coming up Raptors. DeRozan even getting his confidence back by picking on poor Kyrie. Irving/Harris abomination defensively.
Career-high 32 points for Lou Williams. He's done it in 22 minutes, on 16 shots.
Much better second half for DeRozan, by the way. He's hit 4 of his 6 shots. Making better decisions.
Yeah, yeah, getting my Atlanta racism mixed up. Ferry's was repeating racist scouting report, the owner was writing the controversial e-mail
Danny Ferry probably should have spent less time on racist e-mails and more on not letting Masai Ujiri fleece him.
Lou is one point away from matching his career-high. He needed 39 mins to score 31 on Nov 20, 2009 with Philly. Has 30 in 19 mins tonight
Raptors close 3rdQ on a 22-6 run, lead 85-71 going into the fourth. If you haven't heard, they're pretty darn good in the 4th
No third-quarter buzzer-beater for Lou but he launched the shot from half court making it 6 of the last 7 Qs that he's attempted final shot
Lou step-back, 20-2 Raps run, 16-point lead is their largest of the night. Reminder: 1:30 until Lou-Will buzzer-beater time
Cavs fans are either booing or Louing
Before the game Casey credited Ross' D on Waiters last season. Note: no one stops Dion Waiters quite like Dion Waiters
Nothing against Tristan, who is a good player, but Cavs fans must really hate it every time they see Jonas Valanciunas.
Cleveland includes the lead/deficit on its scoreboard, I believe they're the only NBA arena that does so. Co-sign. Down with simple math!
Actually, Bruno has as many threes as DeMar this season.
Amir Johnson has more made threes this season than DeMar DeRozan.
Valanciunas needs to watch it. Varejao is a master flopper.
Not sure if this was done intentionally but it looks like that large party of Raptors fans has been surrounded by Cavs Thunder Stix
Only quarter in which Lou hasn't attempted final shot over last 2 nights: the 4th yesterday (for obvious reasons)
Cool stat: Lou has taken the Raptors last shot in 5 of the last 6 quarters. He's made 3, missed 1, fouled (and hit 3 FTs) on the other
Lou Willliams/Jamall Crawford are scoring machines that you can't guard one-on-one.
DeRozan over last 1.5 games: 2-for-16
Lou Williams has only been outdone tonight by the Raptors fans in attendance. He has been outstanding. They have been outstanding plus.
This, by the way, is the Raptors' first lead of the game.
Lou Williams finishes off a stellar quarter with a three at the buzzer to give Raps an improbable 56-54 lead at the half. Lou leads with 24.
C'mon, as if Lou wasn't taking that shot. LOU BEATS THE BUZZER. Raps LEAD 56-54 at the half. 24 pts on 9 shots in 13 mins for Williams.
You know what you'll get from Lowry every night. DeRozan a mystery too often. He's a good player, but Lowry's a great player.
Lost in Lou's continued offensive brilliance, Casey has rightly praised his commitment on D. He's been a pleasant surprise on that end.
DeMar is not having any of that call. LeBron to the line. DeMar still shaking his head at the call.
Anyone who doesn't think Kyle Lowry is the best Raptor or an all-star simply doesn't have a clue.
Lowry ties it at 53 with a free throw.
Lou Williams with 21 points on 8 shots in 12 minutes (perfect 9-for-9 from the line). Just a ridiculous half for him.
Travelling Raps fans have doubled up the Lets Go Raptors chant preventing the home Cavs fans from chiming in.
Kyle Lowry just got trucked by LeBron. Takes as tough a charge as you can. LeBron shaken up for a second, before he remembered he's LeBron.
Lowry and Ross have both drawn charges on LeBron in the first half. Kyle taking one there
Kyle draws charge. LeBron is still down holding his knee.
Lou Williams coming back in. Cue the music.
Raptors have defended Kyrie well in the past - holding him to 17.6 pts on 38% FG in 8 meetings. He's already at 18 pts on 6/9 FG in 1st half
Kyrie Irving is an unreal offensive player, but might not be five worse defenders in entire league.
DeRozan's first FG: just over 8 minutes into the 2ndQ. He's 1-for-5 in 16 minutes
