Stay or go, DeMar DeRozan says he'll support Kyle Lowry's decision

Between Game 4 and Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals, things looked (very) bleak for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"If we had LeBron on our team too, we would've won", DeRozan said.

Should the Celtics prevail, the Cavaliers will have to go to Boston for Games 1 and 2 because the Celtics earned home-court advantage by having the best regular-season record in the Eastern Conference. The Boston Celtics, who have the top seed in the Eastern Conference, have a first round pick from the Nets exclusively because of the trade they made to bring Pierce and Garnett to Brooklyn.

TORONTO (AP) — In his playoff rematch with the Toronto Raptors, LeBron James proved even more lethal than last time. I'm just kind of shocked some guys take it so personal.

And from the Elias Sports Bureau, Cleveland tied an National Basketball Association record with its 12th consecutive win in series-clinching games, first set by the Lakers from 2000-2004.

The Raptors put the ball through the hoop one more time than the Cavaliers over four games but, unfortunately, 61 of the Cavaliers shots came from behind the arc, where they out-scored the Raptors by 102 points.

Whether star Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry chooses to stay or leave, DeMar DeRozan says he'll support whatever decision his friend and teammate makes this summer. Irving had nine assists. Right now, LeBron James is on a run that we are likely never to see again and it is causing the NBA's top talent in the East to have second thoughts.

That series won't end until Wednesday night at the earliest, and could run until Monday night, meaning the Cavaliers will have plenty of time to rest before the Eastern Conference Finals. "It happened. We got swept and it's going to be one of them long summers for us". "I've said that three times already".

"It's all Kyle Lowry's turtleneck's fault", one person wrote on Twitter about Kyle's appearance during the Raptors' final game of this season, while another added, "Why Kyle Lowry dressed like Wesley Snipes in New Jack City". Lowry and DeRozan have delivered the best era in Raptors history: the four winningest seasons in franchise history, the first four consecutive playoff berths, the first three wins in a best-of-seven series. "We lost yesterday. I still have to get my ankle healthy, get treatment, get to that point". 'We feel like we can win there, we know we can. P.J Tucker had 14 points and 12 assists in his first career playoff start.

Can a successful playoff offense be built around DeMar DeRozan?

As James and the Cavaliers made clear over the course of four games, it's a huge step from where the Raptors are now to truly contending for a title.

"We needed that spark", James said. Beaten because they are a step out of time with the rest of the National Basketball Association despite four consecutive 50-win seasons. Partake in praising of King James, just like we all have the whole postseason.
