The Cavs play against the East’s elite

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Milwaukee Bucks Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Once upon a time the Cleveland Cavaliers would go to Toronto and either troll the Raptors or simply insult them by not showing up ready to play playoff games. They had no serious shot of losing an actual series, so why not enjoy some Toronto nightlife?

I can’t promise that the Cavs didn’t enjoy the Toronto nightlife this time around, but the organization certainly isn’t in a place to clown on the Raptors. They visit a defending champion that has absorbed the blow of losing an MVP candidate. They’re pretty good. The Cavs are not. We’ll see if the Cavs can stay competitive on the road tonight. They hung with the Milwaukee Bucks the other night for about 18 minutes of game action. Here’s hoping for a full 48.
