TORONTO - Professional sports can be a cruel playpen.

Almost exactly 48 hours after having celebrated the unbelievable feeling a buzzer-beating victory can bring to a team, the Raptors found themselves on the other end of the stick.

A Kyrie Irving three-pointer from 28 feet was the dagger that turned another potentially momentum building victory into a crushing defeat as the Cleveland Cavaliers walked out of Toronto with a 99-98 win.









Do you like the new-look Raptors heading into the 2013-14 NBA season?
  Yes, new GM made great moves
  No, they will still be a terrible team
  Unsure what to make of it
