The Toronto Raptors are in deep trouble, as Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and company fell into a 3-0 hole with a 115-94 home loss on Friday. As you might expect, LeBron James was the centerpiece of everything that the Cleveland Cavaliers did, scoring 35 points, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out seven assists. In the process, the NBA’s best player made league history yet again.
After the game, James was ready to party, and that positive spirit manifested itself in a hilarious and rather fitting offer to Drake on Cinco de Mayo.
Perhaps non-coincidentally, the Raptors were not terribly excited to have the (very) famous rapper in their locker room after falling into a seemingly-insurmountable series deficit.
LeBron can basically do whatever he wants if he is going to play like he did in Game 3, and judging by the way he and the Cavaliers have approached this entire series, it does not appear as if James believes the Raptors can do the impossible here. Once again, it feels inevitable that the Cavs will be representing the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals, and even with five victories still needed to reach that point, James felt confident enough to pop off to one of his most famous friends.
