Post Up: Bron’s World

Cavaliers 125, Raptors 103 (Cleveland leads 2-0)

It was The King’s night in Cleveland.

LeBron James not only dropped 39 points, but also became the 4th player in playoffs history to reach 300 three-pointers and moved into 2nd on the all-time playoffs scoring list.

He and Kyrie single-handedly took over this one in the third quarter, accounting for 36 of the Cavs’ 37 points. As a team, Cleveland shot 55% from the field and 55% from three.

DeMar DeRozan really struggled to get going for the Raps, scoring just 5 points on 2/11.

Let’s see if he’s able to bounce back. Game 3 is Friday at the Air Canada Centre.

Spurs 121, Rockets 96 (Series tied 1-1)

After an embarrassing performance in Game 1, the Spurs got their revenge Wednesday night.

It was a five-point game heading into the 4th quarter before San Antonio went off, winning the final 12 minutes by 20.

Houston shot 22/50 from three-point range on Monday. They followed that up by going 11/34 tonight. The Beard flirted with a triple-double (13p, 10a, 7r), but went 3/17 and 2/9 from deep.

Kawhi Leonard did it all: 34 points (on 13/16), a career-high 8 assists, and 7 rebounds.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t a complete win for the Spurs. Point guard Tony Parker went down with a left knee injury in the fourth quarter, and it didn’t look good. An MRI is scheduled for Thursday.

Game 3 is Friday at the Toyota Center.
