These Cavaliers may be different, but they are once again facing a familiar face in the playoffs this year.
With the start of the series against the Raptors, Cleveland figures to get tested — likely more so than they were against the Pacers. Toronto also comes in with some extra rest, with Cleveland having just one day off since Sunday’s Game 7. Will the Cavs’ energy levels be there for Game 1?
The good news for the Cavs is that George Hill appears to be good to go moving forward. It is, however, unclear what starting lineup the Cavs will turn to after inserting Tristan Thompson in for Game 7. Hill will likely start, bumping either Thompson or Kyle Korver to the bench.
Here’s how to watch tonight’s Game 1.
