Rust? What rust?
Despite an eight-day layoff since closing out the Indiana Pacers in the opening round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers hustled their way to a 116-105 victory over the Toronto Raptors in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals at Quicken Loans Arena Monday night.
Small forward LeBron James scored a game-high 35 points and finished off a double-double with 10 rebounds over 42 minutes of play. Additionally, James assisted on four baskets, stole one pass and blocked a shot in the winning effort.
James converted 13 of his 23 attempts from the field, including two three-pointers and seven of his eight shots at the free-throw line.
