29.10.16 Toronto Cleveland 91 : 94

The Say-

The Cavaliers are 7-1 against the Raptors in their last 8 with that one loss coming at the hands of a under strength Cleveland team (LeBron and Kyrie rested). The Cavs have a stranglehold over the Raptors and with the trade deadlines deals in Ibaka and Tucker, the Defense is still letting in over 120 points per game in the two games so far.

When these two teams met in the ECF last season, Game 3 & 4 were turning points where the Raptors were able to even the series before LeBron took over giving 38 & 26 point victories respectively to clinch the series.

The spotlight is on none other than DeMar DeRozan who averaged 27.3 points per game in the regular season, although has slumped to 12 points per game in this series. Eventough the Raptors aren’t having too much trouble on offense, keeping up with the high scoring Cavs needs more fire power from their max guard.

Even with all the stats and trends against the Raptors, you can still feel the home court advantage being enough for maybe one victory during this trip. However with the Cavs on a 6 game streak in the post season, we all sort of have to ride the LeBron wave until something happens.

The Say-

 

For the first time in a while during the Popovich reign, the Spurs will have to push through the post season without Champion point guard Tony Parker. Although on the decline, the experience lost at the position will definitely make an impact on the court in leadership while putting even more responsibility on Kawhi. Patty Mills, step up!

The last two matchups have gone against the trends from the regular season where all 4 games were decided by an average margin of 3 (Spurs 3-1) while the post season series average margin is 24.

Game 1 was a blowout where Houston dominated early and the threes were going in. The Rockets will continue to live by the three where in game 1, they shot 50 times from the arc in compared to 34 in game 2.

San Antonio have not lost a game in Houston since Christmas Day 2015.
