The Cavs haven’t blown the Raptors out through the first quarter, but LeBron James — who was 10-of-12 from the field in a Game 1 blowout — has been nearly perfect in his first 8:13 of play. He connected on his only shot attempt and is a perfect 4-of-4 from the line.
He’s also scored or assisted on the first 20 of 22 points the Cavs scored. Most of it came off the pass, as James had six assists including this pretty feed to J.R. Smith after a fun little curl on the left block.
Then he showed off the vision with a sorta-kinda-maybe-but-not-really no-look pass to Tristan Thompson.
It might not have been an actual no-look but it fooled DeMar DeRozan enough for a wide-open dunk.
After one frame, the Cavs lead the Raptors 30-28.
