As can be seen, Toronto is completing a back-to-back set having beaten the Pistons 95-91 on the front side Saturday while the Cavaliers got routed 119-136 to the Hawks.

Sunday, February 26th, the Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet for the fourth and final time this season.
The Raptors are seeking the sweep having won the season opener on October 19th (108-105), plus November 28th (100-88), and the last meeting on December 23rd(118-107).
Another key point, last season, the squads played four times with Cleveland taking three of the four contests. The Cavaliers hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 53 of their 103 matches.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Saturday, February 25th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Sunday, February 26th.
It was a noon start for the Raptors in Detroit which is unusually early and that was evident by the lack of offense. Toronto had a large contingent of fans in the house and gifted them with a victory extending their win streak to four in a row (their largest streak of the season).
Presently, on offense, the Raptors score 113.0 points per game ranking 21st while shooting 45.5% from the field and 33.5% from the perimeter both ranking 27th.
Defensively, the Raptors allow 112.1 points per game ranking sixth best with opponents shooting 48.8% from the field and 37.1% from deep both ranking 27th.
To summarize the injury report…
- Otto Porter Jr., SF (OUT for season, — foot)
- Fred VanVleet PG (Questionable — personal)
Loyal followers know how I’ve ridden the Cavaliers’ good fortune of facing shorthanded squads and how that’s impacted their winning margin.
With the Cavs losing to the Hawks, it adds fuel to my theory of Cleveland getting too much credit for their overall record since they’ve struggled to defeat relatively healthy starting lineups.
Specifically, Cleveland is 16-18 versus teams who are .500 or better. Diving deeper 13 of those 16 wins occurred with the opponents missing their star (8x), their second-best player (7x), both (5x), or a core starting contributor (9x).
That sort of puts into perspective where the Cavs rank in the grand scheme of the upper echelon of the East.
Offensively, Cleveland scores 111.8 points per game ranking 26th while shooting 48.8% from the field and 36.2% on the perimeter ranking fifth and 12th respectively.
Overall, Cleveland tops the league for opponent scoring limiting foes to an average of 106.7 points per game. Cavs opponents shoot 46.7% from the field and 37.0% from deep ranking eighth and 24th.
To summarize the injury report…
- Mamadi Diakite, (OUT — G League, two-way)
- Isaiah Mobley, (OUT —G League, two-way)
- Dylan Windler (OUT — G League assignment)

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
Cleveland has the rest advantage and might get another shot at an opponent missing a key star if VanVleet is out again. However — it’s notable that Jeff Dowtin Jr. is a definite upgrade defensively so he’d be a real pest to utilize on Garland and/or Mitchell.
The Cavs have lost three in a row and will want to stop that streak plus get at least one win in the season series. Conversely, the Raptors need every single win they can get and have owned the Cavs this season.
