How he sustains it is just mind-boggling.”James made three free throws in the final 7.8 seconds, but missed one with 3.9 seconds to go, giving Toronto a final shot. DeMar DeRozan got a decent look on a 3-pointer — contested by James — at the horn but missed. DeRozan and Toronto coaches complained the All-Star was fouled to no avail.The win felt like a statement by the Cavs, but James insisted there were no intended messages.“It’s a good win for us because of how depleted we are on our roster and everything that’s been going on,” he said. “It’s a good win for us against a very good opponent.ADVERTISEMENT Jakob Poeltl (izquierda) y Pascal Siakam de los Raptors de Toronto defienden ante LeBron James de los Cavaliers de Cleveland, el miércoles 21 de marzo de 2018.
