  • ESPN play-by-play announcer Mark Jones trolled the Toronto Raptors and their fans during their Game 2 loss of the playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
  • After the Cavs erased a 2-point halftime deficit and took an 11-point lead into the fourth quarter, Jones referred to the Raptors’ home city as “LeBronto.”
  • LeBron finished the game with 43 points, 8 rebounds, and 14 assists and “LeBronto” quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
  • The Raptors are the 1-seed in the Eastern Conference but dropped the first two games of the series at home, including blowing a big lead at the end of Game 1.
  • If the Raptors lose this series, it would mark the the third straight year that they lost to LeBron and the Cavs in the play
