Game 3 preview and odds

In the first game of the series, the Toronto Raptors fell by just a point in overtime, despite having a good look at a final shot to win it.

While the team had a lead late in the game, LeBron James helped bring his squad back to capture the big victory in Toronto. The Cavs would follow that up with a huge blowout 128-110 win in Game 2 to crush the Raptors early in the series.

LeBron James would finish Game 2 with 43 points on 19-of-28 shooting, but also dished out 14 assists and grabbed eight rebounds. His teammate Kevin Love also came to play, scoring 31 points and hauling in 11 rebounds for the double-double. As a team, Cleveland shot nearly 60 percent for the game and hit 42 percent of their three-point shots. While Toronto shot well and outrebounded the Cavs slightly, they'll need to figure out a way to capture a much-needed win on the road Saturday night.

In terms of the odds to win, the latest point spread has Cleveland listed as a four-point favorite with a -180 moneyline price. The visiting Raptors are +150 underdogs in this essential game with the over/under points total at 216 points as of this report.
