TORONTO -- Did you know the Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the Golden State Warriors three games to one in last year's NBA Finals?
They haven't lost a playoff game since then.
The Cavaliers picked up their 10th straight postseason win and took a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals by beating the Raptors, 115-94 in Toronto Friday night. The Cavs led by just two before outscoring the Raptors 36-17 in the fourth quarter.
LeBron James shot 15-for-16 from the line and finished with a team-high 35 points. Kevin Love added 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who were 13 of 23 from 3-point range.
Toronto played without All-Star Kyle Lowry because of a sprained left ankle. DeMar DeRozan had a game-high 37 points for the Raptors, who will try to avoid a four-game sweep when they host Cleveland on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have taken a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinals as Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points apiece to lead a 103-92 triumph at Houston.
Aldridge scored nine points in the final period after managing just 19 points over the first two games. Leonard helped the Spurs win without Tony Parker, who is out for the remainder of the playoffs with a leg injury.
Rockets guard James Harden led all scorers 43 points after contributing just 13 in Game 2. The series continues Sunday in Houston.
Tonight, Golden State takes on the Jazz in Utah in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinals. The Warriors won the first two games of the series and are undefeated so far in the playoffs.
