Spurs 103, Rockets 92 • Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points apiece to help San Antonio, now without Tony Parker, beat host Houston to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.

The Cavaliers can complete a sweep of the series in Game 4 on Sunday in Toronto. He's been more of a scorer against Toronto, and he totaled 39 points on just 14 field goal attempts in Game 2.

Toronto did lead for a good chunk of the game, building a 52-49 halftime lead and led for most of the third quarter behind DeRozan's spectacular scoring. Tucker, Patrick Patterson and more as the direction of the Raptors has become ever unclear with a disheartening three games against the LeBron James & Co.

"That's what he's here for", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of Korver. "It was an all-round good game for us rebounding, offensively and defensively so we just have to keep that up". James scored 13 points in the fourth quarter.

It would be hard for Toronto not to be more competitive at home Friday night, but the Cavs are just playing on a different level at the moment. "There was no back down".

Lowry appeared in 60 games for Toronto during the regular season, but a wrist injury kept him from amassing more playing time.

"That's an issue", said Casey.

James would finish with 35 points on 9-of-16 shooting.

3-Ball: The Cavs hit 13-of-23 three-point shots for 56.5 percent, led by Kyle Korver on 4-of-6 attempts. The Cavs really came out strong in the fourth quarter with a revamped bench lineup, featuring Tristan Thompson instead of Channing Frye.

For his part, Steinmeier said the need for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestine conflict is "truly urgent". Steinmeier said much time has already been spent on efforts to set up a state of Palestine alongside Israel.

"We came in here (last year) and weren't prepared", Kyrie Irving said. "But it's on us to be able to take out all the other key players and not let them get going". "Especially going into that fourth quarter, every single second matters for us to execute on both ends".

Cleveland continues their 3-point clinic.

"It's tough", DeRozan said.

But rest DeRozan did, and right after Kyle Korver had come alive to close the third (in Channing Frye's place), hitting a barrage of threes to begin turning the tide against Toronto.

"Man you've got to give them credit". A DeRozan layup evened up the score, but the Cavs ended the quarter on a mini 10-6 run to take a 28-24 lead into the second quarter. If the Raptors have any chance of extending their season they need to get a 20-point performance from one of the three players.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors will trade the southern banks of Lake Erie for the northern banks of Lake Ontario, they'll change cities, even countries. He finished 10 of 14 from the field, dropped four 3-pointers and 15 free throws. DeRozan got a step on Smith, drove the lane and Smith grabbed his arm going by for his fifth foul with 7:06 left in the third.

"He was limping badly", Casey said. "And, for whatever reason, couldn't get started". "We had to give DeMar and Jonas some kind of blow".

James said the game tilted in the fourth because of two things. No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series. They opened the playoffs with a 7-0 record in 1949 and did it again in 1950.

Lowry did not play in the Game 3 loss Friday, did not practice Saturday and was pessimistic about the ankle improving before Sunday's tipoff at 3:30 p.m. ET.
