Cleveland Cavaliers vs Toronto Raptors Preview

It wasn't perfect - a second successive narrow loss with the bulk of their key players returning - but a much-needed step in the right direction as Toronto suffered a frustrating 115-112 loss to the NBA-leading Utah Jazz. 

Pascal Siakam was one assist from a double-double (27 pts, 9 ast), Fred VanVleet, the same (17 pts, 9 ast) as all of Nick Nurse's starters, recorded double-digit scoring. 

However, they won't look fondly at the box score after faltering down the stretch. The game asked to be sealed as Kyle Lowry's three-pointer presented them with a five-point advantage and 1:36 left on the clock. Instead, they allowed an All-Star guard to take over and punish them late on.

Donovan Mitchell was 0-of-9 from deep but led the game in scoring with 31 points - eight straight in the final two minutes - while the Raptors missed four of their next five shots, including a Siakam three that would've sent the game into overtime at the buzzer. 

They face a road trip to Cleveland with backcourt duo Collin Sexton and Darius Garland combining 58 points and 10 assists despite a similarly narrow 116-110 defeat by San Antonio. Can the Raptors execute better, stifling a side many have wrongly overlooked this term? 

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Toronto Raptors Betting Tips

Toronto is the clear favourites as per ESPN's BPI (79.1%), and with the Anunoby-Siakam-VanVleet trident back, my pick to prevail here too. However, the Cavs remain dangerous even with their 15-26 record – big games against Boston, and Philadelphia is the recent exam that.
