In their last game the Raptors lost a battle versus the Boston Celtic while the Cavaliers beat Dallas on Sunday.
Last season, the Cavaliers took three of four meetings and this season the teams have split their two previous matchups. The Cavaliers hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 47 of their 85 matches.
With the loss in Boston the Raptors took heat on social media as a fanbase paranoid of not translating their regular season success to the postseason was all the talk.
Yet, the Raptors have been the most consistent NBA team this season as the only team not to lose three games in a row all year. However, for the first time all season the Raptors begin week 25 of action having fallen out of the top five defensively.
Granted, their recent 3-4 record seems like a swoon at precisely the wrong time, but this past week was the first time since late January the squad had consecutive days off.
The magic number for the Raptors to clinch the east’s top seed remains five with the Celtics just two games back. This week offers the greatest challenge as the Raptors play Cleveland, Boston, Indy and Orlando. Winning the first two games however would go a long way to getting the squad back on track.
Just like a typical LeBron James team the current iteration of the Cavaliers seems to be hitting their stride at the perfect time having won eight of their last 10 games.
Still, the defense remains a major issue where they rank 28th on the season. Despite showing a 18th rank post All-Star break it’s not necessarily much to be celebrating since 13 of Cleveland’s 21 post break games were versus non seeded squads.
The big question is how the Cavaliers will marry their best offensive talent with their best defensive talent since LeBron James is the only true 2-way player on the squad.
George Hill (ankle) missed the game versus Dallas and is questionable for Tuesday. Kyle Korver (foot injury) has missed seven consecutive games and is also questionable.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
The cat and mouse factor looms large as each team would like to have the psychological advantage over the other. However, it’s important Toronto keep Wednesday’s game in mind since the Celtics are the only team who can catch them to take away the top seed.

As much as the Cavaliers offense is rolling, I can’t ignore Toronto is the better two way squad and have more to prove.
