With a 14 point 2nd half deficit and some calls against them late the Cavs lost their third straight game on Tuesday to the Raptors 99-93.

The Cavs who trailed late in the 2nd half by as much as 14 actually led by as many as four early in the fourth, but the hot shooting of Toronto guard Demar Derozan who scored 33 points and a 12-4 run by the Raptors to close out the game was to much for the Cavs.

The referee's blew two crucial calls late in the fourth when Tyler Zeller cut to the basket and was knocked down and a Kyrie Irving lay up where the defender actually turned his back and jumped into Irving and neither drew a foul call.

Kyrie Irving led the Cavs with 25 points and 9 assists while Spencer Hawes chipped in with 15 points.
