The Cavs enjoyed a lopsided win in game one of their Eastern Conference Semi-Final series with Toronto. The final score was 116-105--but the game wasn't that close, as the Cavs led by as many as 26 and were up 22 when LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love exited the game for good with three minutes left.
It was a fun game for the Cavs, who set the tone early with a big first quarter, highlighted by the play of the game. James threw down a left handed dunk, snaring an off-the-backboard pass by Kyrie Irving. Check it out here.
There was more fun in the third quarter, as the Cavs continued to take it to the Raptors. James--on a fast break--was fouled going to the basket. After missing the lay-up, a frustrated James hopped to the sideline where a beer vendor happened to be walking by. James grabbed the bottle out of her hand and pretended to take a sip, drawing laughs from the crowd in Quicken Loans Arena. I'm not sure the Raptors found it very funny, but it was a hit in Cleveland. If you missed it, here's the play below.
All in all, it was an enjoyable night for the Cavs. They will try to have more fun in game two Wednesday.
