With their Game 7 win Sunday vs. the Pacers, the Cavs are getting a second round matchup vs. a familiar foe.

Starting on Tuesday, the Cavs will face the Raptors for the third consecutive playoffs. Cleveland has won the last two matchups. The difference this year is that the Cavs are the No. 1 seed and more vulnerable than they have been in year’s past. The Raptors are also the top seed in the East and are coming off the series with more rest than the Cavs. The Cavs won the series 2-1 in the regular season.

Here’s the series schedule for Cavs-Raptors.
