Here's the bad news for the Raps at the half: they can't run the Cavs off the perimeter with Cleveland making 10-of-15 3's in the first half. And LeBron James is attacking the rim with the intent to end the series and has 21 points. Dwane Casey has plenty of adjustments to make in order to keep the Raptors' season alive.

Jamie Foxx watching LeBron James and the Cavs go into the half with a 55-41 lead. James isn't messing around. He's been on the attack, scoring 21 points in the first half. Kevin Love has 10 points and 9 rebounds already -- easily his best game in Toronto during this series already. Bismack Biyombo, who had a massive flagrant foul that could lead to suspension (exceeding postseason limit) if upheld, hasn't been the force he was in Toronto earlier this series with 4 points and 7 rebounds.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavs up 55-41 at the half, shooting 10-for-15 from 3 as a team. LeBron 21p on 8-for-15 3r 3a; Love 10p 9r; Kyrie 9p 7a 3r; J.R. 9p; Frye 6p. TOR 2-for-12 from 3.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavs 55 Raptors 41 at the half. The difference? The 3-point line where Toronto is 2-for-12 and Cleveland is 10-for-15. LeBron James also has 21 points, which is a problem.

Drake isn't the only rapper in Air Canada Centre. Wu Tang Clan's Raekwon tried to get the crowd hyped for more than the "Ice Cream."

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Raptors have shot 3-for-15 from the field in the second quarter and 1-for-9 from 3 in the game and trail 44-36. They have missed so many open shots and layups.
