For the first time this season the Toronto Raptors are in serious trouble.

It capped off another stellar performance from the 33-year-old as he finished the game with 38 points, six rebounds and seven assists in 41 minutes of play. It continues to get tougher to see any team in the East stand a chance against James. James moved past Tony Parker (226) for the fifth-most games in postseason history.

However, Toronto started 2 of 11 from the field and the Raptors were quickly down 12 and seemingly in big trouble when DeRozan picked up his second foul and went to the bench.

One thing is for certain though, James and the Cavaliers aren't going to beat a Lowry-led team on points, they'll have to knock them out. He followed it up with a step-back 3-pointer on C.J.

The deciding shot was also his second game-winner of the playoffs after his three-pointer in Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers late last month as he reflected on it after the game. Saturday's game-winner was no different. After a Raptors turnover, James found Jeff Green cutting to the basket utterly unmolested by any Toronto defender.

Every time the Raptors pushed, James pushed back. Cleveland on the other hand has just 10 turnovers. The series is now 2-1 in favour of Golden State, but the Pelicans have another home game and anything can happen in New Orleans where they are undefeated (3-0) in the postseason.

It means the Cavs take a 3-0 lead and can win the series and progress to the Eastern Conference final on Monday. One final obstacle stands between the Raptors and Playoff glory or, an early end to their season.
