Eastern Conference Finals Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors

(1) Cleveland Cavaliers vs. (2) Toronto Raptors

Cleveland Cavaliers in 6

The Toronto Raptors reached the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time and it might end sooner than they expected. The Cleveland Cavaliers dominated the Detroit Pistons and the Atlanta Hawks without dropping any single game against both of those teams, while the Toronto Raptors' series against the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat both went to a game 7, but luckily for the Raptors, both game 7 from those series were on their homecourt. 

The Toronto Raptors won their regular season bouts 2-1 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but that does not mean that their chances to win this series will increase because the Cavaliers have been superb all throughout the playoffs having played only 8 games in almost 5 weeks, and with Jonas Valanciunas on the sideline, the Raptors should step up big every game, but most importantly, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan needs to consistent for them to be able to go toe to toe against the Cavs.
