Not good news for the Raptors as they head to Northeast Ohio on Saturday night for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Cavaliers down 2-0.
"In the second half, they went small, and we were able to post Kevin against CJ and DeRozan a few times", said Lue, who added that he showed Love game film Wednesday detailing what the Cavs could do on offense to try to force that switch from Toronto so Love would have an easier time of it in the post. The different in the game was in the third-quarter when the Cleveland Cavaliers outscored the Toronto Raptors 37-20.
In the fourth, James closed the door entirely, putting on an exhibition from midrange with a series of unguardable daggers.
LeBron James, who has made crushing Toronto's playoff hopes an annual tradition, dropped 43 points on the Raptors in a dominant win.

The deal must prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear threat, with stronger provisions in place to force them to keep their word. The report says two US officials believe that the shipments are intended for Iranian ground forces that would attack Israel.
"We've got to continue to keep our guards up and continue to push", cautioned James, whose 14 assists matched his career playoff high. He also grabbed four rebounds and recorded eight assists.
Love said that he had a feeling before Thursday's game that James would produce something special.
And rubbing salt into the Raptors wound, James credited Toronto coach Dwane Casey for forcing him to becoming a better player after the 2011 National Basketball Association final that saw the Dallas Mavericks, whose defence was orchestrated by then-Mavericks assistant coach Casey, beat James' Miami Heat in six games. The Raptors would pull within 13 points on a basket by Valanciunas midway through the period.
Toronto is 0-6 all-time when trailing 0-2 in the playoffs, and has now lost eight straight postseason games to the Cavs.

Woods left frustrated after putting woes
Woods three-putted twice for bogey, including the par-3 sixth hole when he had a downhill birdie chance from about 18 feet. It effectively secured two more rounds. "I hit it all right", said Woods, who is tied for 37th. "I made the last putt".
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. The lead was 15 after Hill's steal and layup with 1:01 left before the Raptors scored the final four points of the period to trail by 11.
The architect of that defense was none other than current Raptors coach Dwane Casey. "At the end of the day, myself, Kev [Love], J.R. [Smith] and Tristan [Thompson], we have to be as complete as we can be in order for us to have ultimate success".
"I know what I have to do now", James told Paul. Over a 16-minute stretch spanning the second and third quarters Boston out-scored Philadelphia 50-20 to seize the lead.
In the opening half of Game Two, the Raptors appeared to have exorcised the ghosts of Game One.
