LeBron milestone as Cavs wobble Raptors

Jose Calderon'It feels great to be a part of first 48-win team in career			David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Raptors pulled away, only for the Celtics to claw back, over and over. Updates with new lead.

The Cavs' defense also successfully shut down the Raptors' offense, with Kyle Lowry restricted to just five points from his 28 minutes on court.

ATLANTA - Kelly Olynyk scored 19 points, including 15 on five 3-pointers when Miami took the lead for good in the second period, and the Heat beat Atlanta, capping a sweep of back-to-back games between Southeast Division rivals.

It was Cleveland's second win in two weeks over the Eastern Conference's top team, whose lead over second-place Boston continues to shrink. Toronto's frontcourt duo of Serge Ibaka (16 points, 12 rebounds) and Jonas Valanciunas (17 points, 10 rebounds) contributed double-doubles, but it was not enough to get past LeBron James and the Cavs. Both teams have four games remaining. Toronto's bench is fourth in the league in scoring (41.7 ppg).

With a 112-106 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers moved to 48-30, meaning the veteran point guard will finish the year with the best record he's ever had with an National Basketball Association franchise. Boston's 4.8 turnover percentage was their biggest strength over Toronto, who had a rate of 14.3. A win tonight would set a franchise record for road wins (25). Raptors center Jakob Poeltl couldn't recover in time.

"We're not excited", Casey said. It did not get us ready for the playoffs.

He was held to just five points and three assists by Cavaliers guard Jose Calderon on Tuesday.

John Wall had nearly as many turnovers (eight) as points (nine) and a awful minus-18 rating in an ugly 120-104 loss to the Houston Rockets.

The Raptors insisted they were prepared for Boston's zone defence going in but, without their threes falling, breaking it turned out to be easier said than done. "They were very physical, they were very good". The previous meeting, Boston was running the floor and penetrating the paint continuously. Even noted curmudgeon Charles Barkley was on board: "The Raptors and the Cavs are the two best teams in the East, but I'm going with the Raptors", he said on his US studio show. Damian Lillard scored 29 points and CJ McCollum added 16, but the pair combined to go 2-for-15 from 3-point range for the Blazers.

"The only reason we were down at halftime was the turnovers", Stevens said. DeRozan scored eight points in the third as Toronto took a 67-53 lead into the fourth. The Cavaliers rank 20th in rebounds allowed per game (43.8). G Shane Larkin (illness) did not travel to Toronto. Boston finished with 17 turnovers, three shy of its season-worst. They still have two homes game left in the regular season.

Rozier failed to reach double digits in scoring for the first time in 26 games. Each of them was defensible, given game situation, the matchup problems created by Boston's length on the wing and the need to break the zone, but Casey couldn't have been happy to abandon his typically rigid rotation in the crucial moments of an important game.

Toronto has won eight straight home games against the Pacers.
