Cleveland Cavaliers vs Toronto Raptors – NBA: Big matchup of the Eastern Conference between the 1st and 3rd place of the standings.
The Cavaliers are gotten hot once again, after several ups & downs, with the team managing to string together 8 wins on their last 9 games and wanting to ensure their 3rd place.
The Cavaliers have a 47-30 record on the season and they are coming off a 8-1 streak on their last 9 games, with a win over the Mavericks by 118-105 on their last game, where they covered the handicap.
LeBron James has been leading the team in scoring with an average of 27.4 ppg, while Kevin Love has an average of 17.5 ppg and Clarkson has been contributing with 13.6 ppg off the bench.
The Toronto Raptors have a 55-21 record on the season, but despite making a great campaign, I believe that their fans are somewhat skeptical
because in recent years the team has been doing very well on the regular season but hasn’t been able to maintain the same rhythm on the play-offs.
DeRozan and Lowry are the franchise’s main players, with both of them contributing with 40 points’ averages and 9.5 assists per game to the team.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Toronto Raptors – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Toronto already has the 1st place practically ensured, while Cleveland needs all wins to ensure the best possible position.
However, the Raptors still have a much more complete line-up, having more quality on both ends of the court, especially on defence, and I believe that will be the key for this game.
