Will the Cavs Sweep the Raptors?

Will the Cavs Sweep the Raptors?

After sweeping the Indiana Pacers Lebron and the Cavs meet the Toronto Raptors. They beat the Milwaukee Bucks in 6 games after being down 2 games to 1.

Last year the Cavs and Raptors met in the Eastern Conference Finals and the Cavs beat them in 6 games. Lebron and the Cavs blew out the Raptors in the first two games and then lost the next two in Toronto. Both teams have made changes since their last meeting in the conference finals. We added Kyle Korver and Deron Williams while the Raptors added Pj Tucker but lost Terrence Ross.

Fast forward to Game 1 of this series that started on Monday, the Cavs won 116-105. Lebron had 35 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. For most of the game the Cleveland was up by double digits and the game seemed worse than the Raptors only losing by 11. In Game 2 the Cavs won 125-103. Lebron had 39 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. This game was never really close either. Cleveland started out making their first 8 three pointers in the first half.

Even though both of these games were blow outs don’t think that the Cavs will sweep the Raptors. Last year when the Cavs went into Toronto they lost the next two games. I think we split in Toronto and close out the series at home. In Game 2 even though the Cavs made their first 8 three pointers the Raptors were still in the game in the first half and down low they were getting anything the wanted. I Don’t think the Cavs will sweep the Raptors but they’ll win in 5 games.
