Taking care of the basketball has been the Cavaliers’ biggest adjustment from the quarterfinals to the semifinals. The roster committed 11-or-more turnovers in all seven contests against Indiana, but has committed five-or-fewer turnovers in both games against Toronto.
Cleveland has 113- and 128-point efforts and a 2-0 series lead courtesy of these low totals.
James, George Hill and Jordan Clarkson represent the Cavs’ primary ball-handlers, a trio that has combined for two turnovers throughout 164 minutes of playing time. Love has a team-high three turnovers, mainly because of Jonas Valanciunas’ interior presence with a seven-foot, 255-pound frame.
The Raptors have 24 turnovers, while the Cavaliers have eight turnovers. Head coach Dwyane Casey will need his lineup to level these numbers to avoid an early departure.
