    They won the season series with Cleveland. Just need to finished with the same record now.

    Raptors now only 2 games behind the Cavs.

    Would love to see them get homecourt advantage to give them an albeit slight chance of knocking out LeBitch.

    Carroll is a huge missing piece for Raps because they have big issues at both forward positions without him

    would be interesting to see the Raps experiment a bit with Bismack and Valanciunas on the floor at the same time

    its kinda amusing watching these eastern muppets making themselves look tough and nasty fighting each other withing their sissy conference, when in any case they will proceed to get beat up and swept in finals by Golden State

    doesnt matter at all. No one is stopping golden state. Why do people even talk about seeding or the nba right now. Lets talk about sports that the champion hasnt already been crowned

    Who cares who get the 1 or 2 seed in the East. It's the same story every year in the East, LeBron and whatever team he is on and then a bunch of hack teams with no chance in a playoff atmosphere. Most people can't even name 2 players on the Raptors, you think the nba wants them anywhere near a finals?

    Raps need #1 seed or will likely make a 1st round exit to the Bulls.

    Knowing my city, we'll probably penetrate it up and lose in the first round.

    The Cavs will lose basically every game LeBron sits. I honestly think they'd win 35 games without him. Neither Irving nor Love had ever led a team to a winning record before joining up with LBJ and the East is noticeably better than it has been.

    1.5 back now, 1 in loss column

    though Raps still have to play at Boston, at Rockets, at Spurs, at Hawks and home against OKC, Hornets, Hawks, Pacers

    Cavs remaining schedule looks far easier

    Same story every year. LBJ walks into the finals (bc he plays in a cupcake conference), only to have a losing finals record against a good west team (ie: Mavs, Spurs, Warriors).
