Cavaliers' LeBron James Calls This Year's Rookie Class 'Best Since 2003'

It was yet another buzzer beater for the man many believe is the sport's greatest ever player

One could only imagine the torrent of emotions whirling inside.

Single game tickets for Games 3 and 4 in Cleveland for the Cavaliers Eastern Conference Finals matchup go on sale on Tuesday morning.

Certainly, when you're swept, there's plenty of blame to go around. "The things he does for his team-mates gets them going".

Prior to the semi-finals, there was confidence the Raptors could finally overcome LeBron James' Cavs but he had the last laugh, inspiring his team to the Conference finals against either the Boston Celtic or Philadelphia 76ers. Except to come out swinging and hope something connects.

"Everyone had counted Cleveland out", said coach Dwane Casey, whose job could be in jeopardy. "We just lost our head". We're not giving in, we're not quitting.

"'Cause we got a closer", he said, with zero hesitation.

There was a bounce-back but no happy ending. "He makes them all the time", Kevin Love said after the game. For James, the Google doc is 248 pages long, counting playoffs.James this season, from the first day of training camp on, had never - not once - spoken of the Cavs as though he believed they had a legitimate chance to win a second National Basketball Association championship. "That's all you ask - in a hostile situation, the other team playing really well, putting ourselves in a position to win". Cedi Osman outscored Kyle Lowry. Even the occasional reader of this space knows most of the ups and downs, the roster tumult, coach Tyronn Lue's illness, the bad defense, the near first-round disaster against Indiana.We told you in January that numerous veterans felt the Cavs didn't have enough talent to win a championship. Instead it has found different ways to lose. "I was awful in Game 1 and they picked it up for me".

Nikol Pashinyan is elected Prime Minister of Armenia
A year later Pashinian was elected to the National Assembly on the ticket of Ter-Petrosian's Armenian National Congress (HAK). In a referendum in 2015, Armenia adopted constitutional changes to move the powers from the president to the prime minister.

Toronto will need a bounce-back performance from their top scorer, Demar Derozan, who pulled a disappearing act in Game 3, tallying only eight points and racking up more turnovers (three) than assists (two).

Power forward Serge Ibaka has faded out of the starting lineup.

That's never a bad thing, but the way the Cavs played in the four games against the Raptors nearly makes you wish they played again tomorrow. Then James raced down the court and delivered the dagger.

"You look at the rookie class from this year, it's probably the best since 2003", he added, breaking himself and the assembled reporters up. Everyone thought they were vulnerable but as long as they have him, they have a chance and that's what we were looking at.

Toronto came into the series feeling great. The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't almost finished. You could nearly slip a cob of corn in the open mouth of assistant coach Jim Sann.

James was once more the tormentor in chief for Toronto, contributing eight rebounds and 11 assists in addition to his 29 points. "His future is now, actually", James said, per The Globe and Mail. Well, we might just find out Wednesday night in Game 5.
