Love, after putting up just three points on 1-for-9 shooting with four rebounds and two assists, sat the entire fourth quarter. The Austin 3:16 shirt Love wore as he walked out of the Air Canada Centre perfectly summed up his night — because of his stone-cold shooting touch.

Irving, after shooting just 3-for-19 from the field (including 1-for-7 from 3) for 13 points with just one assist and three turnovers, had to be helped off the court and into the locker room before the game was finished while he clutched his chest. Irving later claimed the wind was knocked out of him by a blow from Cory Joseph, which is precisely how you could describe the Raptors bringing the Cavs’ perfect 10-0 postseason streak to a screeching halt.
