Not enough

Serge Ibaka scored 23 points and DeMar DeRozan had 22 points for Toronto. It wasn’t enough as they need better output from¬† DeRozan to put the Cavs. Ibaka needed to play like this a nightly basis to make this series competitive.

Others

Cory Joseph had a great game with 20 points and 12 assists for Toronto. P.J Tucker had 14 points and 12 assists in his first career playoff start. Joseph did a great job despite having to start against one of the best point guards in the league in Kyrie Irving which is a difficult matchup for any guard. Tucker had a great game in his first playoff game but the problem was that Tucker should have been the starter all along in this series.

Conclusion

The media and fans that the Toronto Raptors could possibly beat the Cavs. This series said otherwise as the Raptors couldn’t handle the defending NBA Champions. Yes, despite their first back 50-win seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Raptors have reached the playoffs for the fourth straight year. However once again they couldn’t get it done when it mattered the most.
