They have not had much success at Quicken Loans Arena, but will have to find a way to win two games on the road in order to win the series.
In a post-season that was supposed to be so different, the storyline was way too familiar.
Love's had his struggles against the Raptors before in the playoffs and bounced back.
"We thrive off of adversity". That's what point we're at now. Instead, it's been to do everything else that's necessary to help his team win. He was able to get some going on the run. JR Smith scored 15 points, Jeff Green added 14 and George Hill had 13 for the fourth-seeded Cavaliers.
Twice already Toronto has been dispatched by Cleveland in the post-season.
When 76ers jumped out to a 22-point lead on Celtics midway through the second quarter in Game 2, it looked like the talented young team some picked as a dark horse to win the National Basketball Association title.
Toronto played well for most of the first half, building a nine-point lead just inside the 5-minute mark. "Yeah, we gotta play harder".

The biggest disparity in Game 1 came from the 3-point line as the Celtics shot 17-35 (48.6%) and the Sixers shot just 5-26 (19.2%).
U.S. delays metal tariffs on Canada, EU, Mexico
"Further, if the alternative means are not finalised shortly, the president will consider re-imposing the tariffs", she said . In retaliation to that China threatened to impose a 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of USA exports.
Eurozone Manufacturing Growth Slows Again at Start of Q2
Meanwhile, sharper input inflation continues to raise prices of output, extending the current period of inflation to 18 months. The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported that its key manufacturing index fell to 57.3 in April from 59.3 in March.
Armenian opposition leader becomes sole candidate for interim PM job
Mr Sargsyan, who had served 10 years as president, stepped down on 23 April just days after being sworn in as PM. Protests flared when Sarksyan, an establishment veteran, announced he was seeking to become prime minister.
But that's just what the scoreboard said.
The Cavaliers won the third quarter 37-24, were up by 11 at the end and in control.
With that, we have Toronto heading to Cleveland down 2-0 in the series. But there was no answer for James, who by then was scoring seemingly at will, many of his shots falling - agonizingly - at the shot-clock buzzer.
James was asked about having the mental edge against Toronto in the postseason and deflected in his response.
Kyle Lowry scored 18 points in 6 of 7 shooting from the field to lead the Raptors in a 63-61 halftime over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
"One thing you have is pride, to go into Cleveland and play for pride", Casey said. If they get the sweep at home, the Raptors could be demoralized. "That was only the second quarter, and we knew the game was far from over", Jayson Tatum told TNT about the comeback.
If there was any confidence to begin with, it was mostly gone minutes into the third quarter when James and company put on a spurt the Raptors had no answer for. The Raptors shot 54 per cent.
Game three is on Saturday (Sunday NZ time) in Cleveland. The Raptors could not keep it together in overtime and ended up losing the game by a single point, 113-112. Though James has carried Cleveland throughout the regular season and in the Cavs' opening-round victory over in, his teammates picked him up Tuesday, when he had what he called "probably one of my worst games of the season". But the mighty Cavs came in boasting an even better stat: 18-1 all-time in playoff Game 2s after winning series openers. I love Ty and I think it's good for us.
Love has responded well, scoring more points (10) in the first quarter than he had in all of Game 1 (7). The Cleveland Cavaliers needed LeBron James to account for over half of their offense and average 42 minutes a game to get past the Indiana Pacers in the first round.
