If Cavs fans are nervous about Game 5, they haven't shown it yet. They've been loud from the jump and are exploding after every basket, including the last Kevin Love 3-pointer to give Cleveland an early 11-7 lead.

Raptors F DeMarre Carroll is shooting 29.4 percent from the field and 20 percent from 3-point range during the Eastern Conference finals. He's banged up but it would be nice for Toronto if he'd hit shots.
