Raptors coach Dwane Casey on center Bismack Biyombo's ability to defend the perimeter: "He's one of our best athletes. He's always teasing about chasing lions and everything in the Congo. I've got to go there over this summer and see that."

LeBron James says he wasn't aware of what people thought and the sense that this series was over after first two games. James says when he's home, he doesn't watch sports shows but opts for cartoons with his kids and shows like "Man vs. Wild." Adds that's what's important to him, not what outsiders think.

LeBron James said he tips his hat to Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan but noted that as well as they played, Cavs had a chance to win.

Raptors G DeMar DeRozan says it's a "cakewalk" for him when backcourt mate Kyle Lowry is setting the tone offensively.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he almost inserted Jonas Valanciunas late in the second quarter but decided against it given the intensity of the game. Hopes a couple extra days will be key for the center prior to Game 5.
