Cleveland Cavaliers v Toronto Raptors - Game One
LeBron James celebrating the win.

Flattering in the regular season to deceive their faithful in the postseason has been second nature to the Raptors for quite some time now. They gave detractors another exhibit for this notion in a 113-112 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in overtime, after leading the game for nearly the entirety of the first 4 quarters.

People who were looking to jump on the Dinos' bandwagon will be way warier after Game 1 of this series, during which the Raptors basically surrendered their homecourt advantage to the King. LeBron James had another triple-double, taking his playoff career total to 21 triple-doubles.

Twitter feated on the Raptors' misery. YouTuber Dom2k had the following comment to make:

Renowned basketball analyst and the host of the sports talk show Undisputed Skip Bayless had a word to put in as well:

This particular guy was brutal in his assessment of the only Canadian franchise in the league:

Fans had no problems linking the Avengers' franchise's latest flick to the playoffs:

There was no dearth of Crying Jordan memes on this loss either:

This tweet taught us a thing or two about different species of dinosaurs:

Praise for LeBron was predictable:

Drake managed to avoid too much of the attention during the game, but he wasn't spared by Twitterati:

Bleacher Report had a particularly funny take:

The Raptors can't seem to catch a break even on home court:
