Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers – 16h30 03/24/2022 [PT]: Expect a surprise from Toronto.
The Cavs just suffered the wrath of King James in the last match, thereby receiving a 131-120 defeat before Gold – Purple of LA. This was the 5th loss in the last 10 matches of Garland with his teammates, making their ambition to keep a place in their Play-off group at this time will be very difficult. The Toronto Raptors are right behind, the Cavaliers will have to win if they don’t want to be usurped by this Canadian opponent in the next round.
Toronto Raptors are currently ranked 7th in the Eastern standings with 40 wins after 72 games. They are having the last 3 rounds with many difficulties, when they lost to the Lakers and Chicago, making the gap between The Cavs and the top group, although fragile, still cannot be leveled. The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently standing right above this opponent with a difference of only 1 game, obviously if losing to the direct competitor itself means being kicked out of the top 6. Without Jarrett Allen, this team will continue to face instability.
Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers Handicap

- Quarter 3: Cleveland Cavaliers
- Quarter 4: Cleveland Cavaliers
The Toronto Raptors had a completely overwhelming period against The Cavs, but that was before this year’s season. In 3 encounters this season, the Raptors received all 3 defeats with the heaviest score recorded at 99-144 in the match at the end of December last year. In general, the injury of Anunoby or Flynn on the Dinosaur side still affects the strength of this team, but it is still much better compared to the Cavaliers on the other side. The opportunity opens up ahead for Siakam and his teammates to return to the top 6, with the home-field advantage and squad strength being appreciated more than the opponent. They will still have the trio Siakam – VanVleet – Trent and especially the morning star Scottie Barnes with consecutively towering scores in recent times. The Cavaliers are still relying heavily on Garland’s ability to shine, an excellent player in scoring and assisting. But if the remaining names like Mobley or Markkanen cannot make up for the score or play more aggressively in defense, the defeat of the Ohio blade will still be possible. The Raptors are expected to surprise this opponent, as they have the home field advantage and are in better form at this point.
The Toronto Raptors are not a team with the highest scores in the NBA in the last 10 games, but they still have success thanks to their stable defense when they only lose an average of 107 points per game. The Cavaliers have been one of the best defensively since the start of the season, but they were put at a disadvantage after Jarrett Allen got injured. The upcoming match may be headed to the Under.
