When LeBron James is playing like this, there’s nothing any defender can do.
He was blowing by defenders and getting to the rim, where he shot 9-of-12 — but even when the Raptors did their job and forced him into the midrange, he was 9-of-13 shooting. He was effective as the pick-and-roll ball handler (especially in a two-man game with Kevin Love), scoring six times. LeBron had seven post-ups and often from there nailed tough fadeaways. Nine times on the night, he just went in isolation and that worked well, too.
LeBron finished with 43 points on 28 shots, plus had 14 assists. He was the reason the Cavaliers are up 2-0 in this second-round series against Toronto.
Check out all the highlights above. It was a masterful performance from one of the game’s all-time greats.
