Our predictions were far-fetched from the reality of Game 1 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors, but I still maintain some hope in the power of the Canadian side.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Toronto Raptors
- Most of the time in the NBA when it came down to “rest vs rust”, the latter was triumphant as the statistics show. This was not the case in Game 1 from the Quicken Loans Arena, where LeBron James & co. took their time off and focused heavily on this match-up against the Ratptors and gave them quite a beating. Dwane Casey put the blame on lack of preparation time and this may just be true, but it’s high time that Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan wake up and realise that they need to defend the 3 point line in much better fashion. The two mentioned above were ice-cold in the first encounter between these two, but as it happened in all of the 3 games from this regular season, I expect good performances from both of them with this series is advancing and I certainly expect a victory at least in Canada Air Center.
“We’ve got to make sure we force the issue, force the contact, if we’re not, and make sure we get to the free-throw line. This series is not over by any means.” Dwane Casey (Toronto Raptors coach) said.
