The Raptors couldn't recreate the magic on home court that had propelled them to two wins against the Cavaliers, bowing out of the Eastern Conference final Friday night as Cleveland took the series 4-2 in Toronto.

After a hardfought playoff season, the Raptors' 113-87 loss ended the year..

The first quarter saw both teams battling evenly, but the Raps got several fouls called against them that saw the Air Canada Centre erupt as fans started screaming at the refs. 

That hit its peak after star centre Bismack Biyombo earned a flagrant foul that could see him sit out Game 7 if the team makes it there. 

The Raps finished the first quarter just six points behind Cleveland, but the gap only grew wider as the clock ticked away— with the score sitting at 55-41 when the buzzer sounded at halftime.
