CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Cavaliers took an early lead against the Toronto Raptors Saturday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, but the game came down to the wire.

A LeBron James buzzer beater sealed the deal and gave Cleveland the win, 105-103.

The Cavs spread the ball around from the start with James and Kevin Love putting up 6 each in the opening quarter. At one point, they had a 12-point lead, but finished the first quarter up by 5.

The Raptors kept it close then the Cavs pulled away with help from Kyle Korver, who had 7 points in the second. They went on a 17-2 run and ended the half, 55-40. In that time, Love already had a double-double.

To start the second half, Toronto went on a run of its own. Even with five Cavs scoring double digits, the Raptors stayed in it.

The Cavaliers leads the series 3-0. Game 4 is Monday in Cleveland. If necessary, Game 5 will be Wednesday in Toronto.
