<p>The Toronto Raptors have clawed back a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the best of seven-series Eastern Conference Final.</p> <p>Led by DeMar DeRozan, who netted 32 points, the Raptors were more aggressive, more physical and more active in front of their home crowd as they took a 13 point lead into the break at half-time.</p> <p>The Cavaliers opened the second half on a surge and cut the lead down to nine but, helped by Bismack Biyombo’s franchise playoff record of 26 rebounds, the Raptors remained on track to win game 3 by 98-84.</p> <p>It’s the first loss of the playoffs for the Cavs, who swept through the first two rounds undefeated and won the first two games against the Raptors.</p> <p>Game four is on Monday night in Toronto.</p>
