Even Ric Flair is trolling the Toronto Raptors right now

Fantasy Basketball Breaking News Even Ric Flair is trolling the Toronto Raptors right now

After finishing the season as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference and securing home-court advantage, this was supposed to be the year when the Raptors finally overcame their arch nemesis LeBron James.

Cleveland took a 98-87 lead into the fourth quarter, and the ugliness continued.

LeBron finished the game with 43 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas chipped in with 16 points and 12 rebounds, and Fred VanVleet had 14 points off the bench.

However, in the finals, the Mavs restricted him to 17.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists.

For Raptors fans, the only thing uglier than Thursday night's Game 2 loss to the Cavaliers may have been the response on social media.

So, you get him to turn his back 15 feet or more away from the basket, stick tight as he turns and fires in one motion from various points on floor, and hope for the best. The Cavs have now won eight consecutive playoff games against the Raptors dating to 2016 and have won five straight at Air Canada Centre.

We're in the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs, and we've already got some surprises. That's where we're at now and it's the first team to win four.

The Raptors lost both playoff games in Cleveland past year and all three in 2016 - none of the five were close.

"One thing you have is pride, to go into Cleveland and play for pride", Casey said.

It took Cleveland Cavaliers start LeBron James a long time and a lot of work to get to where he is today as the NBA's best player and arguably the best player of all time.

- LeBron James has perfected a signature, soul-crushing shot that also seems to describe what's happening again to the Toronto Raptors. Game 2 against the Raptors was the first time in these playoffs that he scored over 20 points, and it was only the second time in nine games that he made at least half of his total shot attempts from the field.

DeRozan and Raptors guard Kyle Lowry.

"When he retires, that's what you admire what he's done", said Toronto coach Dwane Casey. The Raptors just can't find a way to beat the guy, and they play like a completely different team when going against him.

Love, ever the pragmatist, did not assign any greater meaning to his Game 2 performance.

The online humiliation went into overdrive at the end of the third quarter, when ESPN announcer Mark Jones called the city "LeBronto" as the broadcast went to a commercial break. But sometimes you're going to butt heads, and I mean, my entire life and my entire pro career - this is going to be my 10th year - I've spent the majority of my time at the 4 position and the power forward position. Love went 5-for-5 with DeRozan and Miles on him.
