The Raptors are known for their offense, which is led by SG DeMar DeRozan and PG Kyle Lowry, but it's their defense that might take them deep into the playoffs. Toronto is seventh in points allowed and tied for fifth in opposing field-goal percentage.


The Cavaliers are fourth in points scored. SF LeBron James is having another massive season. PG Kyrie Irving is suffering from a sore knee but looks ready to return when he's needed, and PF Kevin Love and SG JR Smith are coming back from injuries.

That was evident on Sunday, when the Cavaliers blew a 26-point fourth-quarter lead to the Atlanta Hawks.


Cleveland has had the upper hand in their rivalry against the Raptors as of late. They're 7-3 SU, with five straight wins, and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 meetings with Toronto.
