No coincidence that the schedule makers put last year’s Eastern Conference finals participants together in this final game of the season. It doesn’t look like it will mean much though.
This game could be totally meaningless or it could be for the top spot in the East, for Cleveland. They might want to win just to show they can too.
It looks like win or lose Toronto is in third place in the East. They might be a little disappointed with that result but they are playing well right now and have to like their chances.
The key has been getting Kyle Lowry back. There are not many All-Star point guards around and he is the leader on this tea. The last few games it looks like he is going to mesh with the new faces just fine.
This team has to really like their chances against Cleveland or anybody else this season. They are deeper and have a much better defensive gameplan. I would love to see PJ Tucker get into LeBron.
Demar DeRozan might be one of the more underrated players in the league. The dude is fifth in scoring and never gets mentioned among the best players in the game.
The Raptors now also have a great mix upfront with Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas. JV is also underrated. He essentially averages 12 and 10 in just 25 minutes per game.
I can’t confirm it but the rumor is that LeBron and Kyrie are not suiting up for this one which makes Cleveland kind of unplayable for me. Even with them their struggles of late are well documented.
It is hard to put your finger on what is exactly wrong with this group. If they are able to make it to another Finals and even win it, it will have been the greatest flip switching job in history.
Deron Williams scored 35 points in their recent OT loss against Miami. I am not sure if he is rejuvenated in CLE or just hunting down shots when the stars are not in the lineup. Kevin Love is back and looks good though.
I think you want to pass here in terms of considering CLE. Early in the season they proved themselves as top dog in the East and seemed to have lost interest completely. That intensity is not coming back tonight.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
This is a meaningless game. The Raptors are stuck in the third spot and can’t move up and even beating the Cavs won’t say much as they are not really getting after it in this one.
The line on this one will be interesting once it is posted. The Raptors might even be favored but we still don’t know how their coach is going to approach this game in terms of minutes.
