CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Cavaliers are back in action tonight against the Toronto Raptors in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
So far, the home teams have dominated.
It’s been hard for Cavs fans to recognize their team during the last two games, allowing the Raptors to tie things up in Toronto.
Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving were both off in Game 3.
Love was still not back in stride Monday night, tweaking his ankle and sitting out the fourth quarter.
The Raptors evened the series to two a piece in Toronto, and now it’s back to Cleveland and the home court edge.
Toronto’s stars, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan have been terrific, combining for 67 points in Game 4, the most they’ve ever scored as teammates. The Cavaliers know they need to knock off their rhythm.
As for Love, he was looking fine at practice Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic courts, so he’s expected to play.
