You don't have to be an National Basketball Association scout to know that the Raptors go as their All-Star guard goes. "We just had to weather the storm".
DeRozan has been held to single-figure scoring in the postseason five times during his career - all on the road - and the Raptors are 0-5 in those contests. They trailed by only two after three quarters before the Cavaliers quickly blew open the game. But among the players on Toronto's $108 million roster, they need to slow James to some degree.
The Cavs can sweep the Raptors on Sunday afternoon.
"We take our butt whupping and head home", said Raptors coach Dwane Casey.
That won't be easy against the Cavaliers, the first team since the Minneapolis Lakers in 1949 and 1950 to win their first seven playoff games in consecutive seasons.
Lowry suffered the injury in Game 2 in Cleveland when Cavs forward Tristan Thompson shoved Toronto's Norm Powell, who hit Lowry sideways as he fell.
"It's about us", Casey said. "This year we understood what mindset we had to come in, especially in a rowdy arena like this". Kyrie Irving also scored 16 points and Kyle Korver had 14 points while going 4-for-6 in 3-point attempts. James had eight rebounds and seven assists.
"Some of them are actually pretty good and some of them are like I've seen them before, seen it since high school", he said.
"We got to take away something", Casey said. The Raptors replied by winning Game 3 99-84 and Game 4 105-99.
Of primary concern is the condition of Kyle Lowry's left ankle, wrenched badly when Tristan Thompson threw Norm Powell into the star point guard's leg. Lowry was making courageous talk Wednesday about being ready for Game 3 but there didn't seem to be much optimism 24 hours later. Making a Game 3 prediction that includes a Raptors' victory wouldn't be based on much logic, and Toronto will be lucky to steal a win before they are eliminated from contention. "He was limping badly".
"(He's) a lot more aggressive, you just see a different fire, hunger in him this time around, as it should be", DeMar DeRozan said comparing LeBron this year to last. "He wanted to. The doctors and trainers and medical people were just telling him he shouldn't try to go because he was in so much pain".
The obvious next man, if Lowry can't go, is Cory Joseph, who just happens to be one of the few Raptors that came out of Cleveland with a little confidence.
And then in last year's epic Game 7 of the Finals, when James recorded a triple-double against Golden State, he had perhaps the signature moment of his career, a late block that delivered Cleveland its first pro sports championship in 52 years.
The Raptors have thrown a grab-bag of defenders at the four-time MVP, but the numbers don't lie - LeBron has dominated everyone who's tangled with him through the first six games of the Playoffs. We're coming home, let's take care of home.
