There was a time when the Cleveland Cavaliers used to beat up on the Toronto Raptors.

Of course, that was during the LeBron James era.

But nowadays, the Raptors are an elite team in the NBA and the Cavaliers are rebuilding to get back to that status.

For the second time in a week, Toronto beat the Cavs. Tuesday night’s score was 99-93. The Cavs third straight loss after winning six in a row.

Leading the way for the Raptors was DeMar DeRozan with 33 points, six assists and four rebounds. Terrence Ross scored 19 points.

The Cavs were led by Kyrie Irving and the recently-acquired Spencer Hawes. Irving finished with 25 points and nine assists. Hawes, making his first start since joining the Cavs in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers five days ago, collected 15 points and 7 rebounds.

Bryant in his 18th season and the NBA’s fourth-leading scorer in history, had not played since rupturing his Achilles tendon in April against the Golden State Warriors.

He scored nine points, grabbed eight rebounds, dished out four assists ans turned the ball over eight times in 28 minutes of action.

The Cleveland Cavaliers blew a 17-point lead, the game and lost All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving in a 100-96 decision to the Toronto Raptors.

The 20-year-old Irving left the game with a bruised left shoulder late in the third quarter. X-rays were negative and he will have further tests in the next few days.

The Cavaliers locker room was kept closed for more than 20 minutes after the game while head coach Byron Scott let the team know he is tired of them blowing games in the 3rd quarter.

Amir Johnson scored 17 points and tied a career high with 16 rebounds for the Raptors.

Rookie Dion Waiters scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter for Cleveland.
