The Toronto Raptors have inched closer to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the standings after the Raptors victory last night. With a three game lead in the standings and a 14-point lead in the third quarter, the Cavs looked like they could put the Raptors away, but fell again in Toronto, their second loss there this season.

Kevin Love finished with 20 points, nine rebounds, and five assists on 5-15 shooting, 2-5 from downtown, and 8-10 from the free throw line. Love’s solid performance, however, was no where near the level of Kyle Lowry, who finished with 43 points on an ultra efficient 15-20 from the field.

Love spoke to the media after the game, and admitted what we all suspected: that this game was more than just a game to the Cavs, and what they have to do to get better.
