Cavaliers take 3-2 lead

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the verge of reaching the NBA Finals after they crushed the Toronto Raptors 116-78.

The Eastern Conference Finals has been defined by home court advantage as the Cavaliers raced out to a 2-0 lead initially before the series shifted to Toronto, where the Raptors got back into contention by making it 2-2.

Upon returning home for Game 5, the Cavaliers looked to be at their best as they proved to be too much for the Raptors to handle.

Kevin Love led the Cavaliers in the scoring department as he dropped 25 points on eight of 10 shooting.

Love was well supported by LeBron James and Kyrie Irving as they scored 23 points apiece. James also grabbed six rebounds and dished out eight assists.

DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry were a huge disappointment as they finished with 14 and 13 points respectively. In fact, they were the only two players to reach double figures in scoring for the Raptors.

The Cavaliers have a chance to advance to the NBA Finals if they win Game 6 in Toronto on Friday.
