INJURY TO WATCH
Toronto is two games up on Boston for the top overall seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs, while the Cavs are a half game up and even in the loss column with Philadelphia in the battle for the third seed. Needless to say, this game is important for both teams. Being at home and with less cushion, I'm taking Cleveland here. The Cavs won the last meeting 132-129 on their home court and tonight might be a similar outcome although probably slightly lower-scoring.
