LeBron leads Cavs again, Spurs edge ahead


The Cleveland Cavaliers eased to yet another win over the Toronto Raptors as the San Antonio Spurs edged ahead in their NBA playoff series.

The Cavs are having few problems against the Raptors and went 3-0 up in the Eastern Conference semi-finals with a 115-94 win.

LeBron James was again dominant with 35 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Kevin Love had a double-double of 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Cavs, who outscored the Raptors 66-42 in the second half.

Raptors star DeMar DeRozan finished with a game-high 37 points but Toronto - without Kyle Lowry (ankle) - are on the verge of elimination.

The Spurs claimed a 103-92 win against the Houston Rockets to take a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semi-final series.

Kawhi Leonard was the star once more with 26 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.

But LaMarcus Aldridge also had 26 points as the Spurs, without the injured Tony Parker, edged ahead in the series.

Their win came despite a huge performance from Rockets star James Harden, who had 43 points.

Harden went 14-of-28 from the field at Toyota Center, which will host game four on Sunday.
