LeBron James (23 pts, 6 reb, 8 ast) checks out with 1:53 left in the third quarter and that might be it for him tonight. The Cavs lead the Raptors by 36 in Game 5.

Game 5 is deep into the third quarter and Cleveland is still shooting better than 60% from the field. Meanwhile the Raptors are shooting worse overall (43%) than the Cavs are from deep (47%). That's how you end up with a 34-point Cleveland lead.
