LeBron James knows the moment and has come out aggressively looking for his offense. Looking to set the tone for his team in a close-out game, James made 5-of-6 shots -- his only miss was a heat check contested 3 after sinking his first four shots -- and has 14 points points after one quarter. On the last two Cavs' possessions of the first quarter, LeBron drove hard. Cory Joseph stripped him on the first but he got to the rim easily on the second drive. Cavs lead 31-25 entering second.

Cavs go up by 11, but Raptors close the quarter on a 9-4 run to cut CLE lead to 31-25 after 1Q. LeBron 14p on 5-of-6 shooting; Kyrie 4p 5a; Love 7p 4r; J.R. 6p 2-of-3 from 3. TOR out shooting CLE 55 pct to 50 pct, however.

Cavs 31 Raptors 25 end 1. LeBron James has 14 points and Cleveland has led by as many as 11. Jonas Valanciunas with four points and two rebounds off the bench for Toronto.

Bismack Biyombo receives his 4th flagrant foul of the postseason, which would result in an automatic 1-game suspension in potential Game 7.

Bismack Biyombo just got a flagrant foul for an elbow clear out on Kevin Love. Biyombo now has exceeded the limit for flagrant fouls in the postseason and if there's a Game 7, he will likely not be available. Jonas Valanciunas will likely start if Raptors force a Game 7.

Raptors C Bismack Biyombo has picked up a flagrant foul, meaning he's picked up enough points to where he'd be suspended for a Game 7 if there is one. Now, there's also a possibility the NBA could decide to rescind the call later. We'll see how this plays out to see if it matters.

Been saying since November the NBA needs to clarify the rules regarding elbow contact. It's not refereed consistently that I can tell.

Jonas Valanciunas approved of his Mini-Me, shown on the big screen during the last time out to the roar of the Air Canada Centre crowd.

Jurassic Park was antsy and ready to get started not long before Game 6 tipped off.

The who's the best Center in the NBA is basically impossible. Great arguments against each.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Raptors trail 15-8 early and LeBron James has hit his first three shots. With their forwards struggling to make shots and this being a do-or-die game wonder if Dwane Casey goes to Jonas Valanciunas earlier for scoring.

The gap between Tristan Thompson's ability to get the ball and what happens once he has it is large.

Game 6 starts with a three-point play for Raptors G Kyle Lowry, who has been much better at home in this series than on the road.

Walking behind Drake and his entourage. They arrived earlier than normal for Game 6. For Game 4, Drake showed up after the game started.
