LeBron, Love power Cavaliers to 116-78 romp over Raptors

in

CLEVELAND (AP) — Back home, the Cavaliers were not hospitable. Just rude.
They roughed up the visiting Raptors again.
LeBron James scored 23 points then sat the fourth quarter, Kevin Love scored 25, and Cleveland unleashed tenacious defense on Toronto to regain control of the Eastern Conference finals with a 116-78 rout of the Raptors in Game 5 on Wednesday night.
On their court in front of 20,000-plus screaming, towel-waving fans following two straight losses in Canada, the Cavs opened a 34-point lead in the first half, pushed it to 43 in the second half and took a 3-2 series lead.

Amaya, Derek.jpg

I never deep-sea fished and couldn’t tell you how to paddle a boat. My only experience as a sailor was playing Battleship as a child.
But be it as it may, my best friend and I dedicated a solid portion of our junior year of high school to refurbishing a pirogue and we never looked back.
