Can the Raptors avoid the sweep is the $60 million dollar question? Cavs are on a roll


After a week of resting after the sweep of the Atlanta Hawks, my Cleveland Cavs finally figured who they’ll be facing in the conference finals & nobody expected this opponent. They were the 2nd best team in the Eastern Conference, but nobody gave them a shot to reach it this far because of youth & inexperience. However, that’s why they play the games. Before we break down the East finals, who would had thought the Thunder would steal home court from the Warriors in game 1! That had definitely caught my attention & I had to start blogging about the East after the game ended. Let’s break it down

Eastern Conference

1)Cleveland vs 2)Toronto- After another 8 day lay-off, the Cavs finally got an opponent to face other than themselves in practice. In the last sweep of the Hawks, they went 3 pt crazy, setting a record for most 3 pointers made in a 4 game series w/77. Kevin Love & Kyrie Irving were proving what could had been if they were both available for last yr.’s finals along w/ Lebron. For the Raptors, nobody including myself didn’t think they would had beaten the Heat because of lack of playoff experience, their big man Valanciunas being injured (out for game 1, doubtful for game 2) & both Kyle Lowry & Demar DeRozan’s shots weren’t falling. But in the last 2 games, they sorta broke out their slump & Bismack Biyombo provided energy, spark, & toughness to set off the fact Valanciuanas wasn’t playing. The Raptors went 2-1 on the Cavs in regular season w/ Lowry getting his career high in points on them w/ 51. However, the lights are brighter & the Cavs can see they are healthy & are 4 more wins away to making a return to the Finals & Lebron’s 6th straight finals appearance. My dad thinks Cavs in 6, but I say in 5, even though everyone is thinking another sweep.
