Toronto Raptors @ Cleveland Cavaliers Nov 22nd
For the Saturday night NBA betting sheet , we’re back in Cleveland where the Eastern Conference leaders, Toronto Raptors are visiting Lebron James and his struggling Cavs .
The Raptors moved to 6-1 home record by destroying Milwaukee 124-83 on Friday night. Toronto led by as many as 52 points, setting a club record, while finishing with a season high in scoring and 3s with 15. As a long time Raptors fan , I haven’t seen this team to play as good as they do this season. Team work , sharing the ball, showing great determination , never giving up .
In a game where Toronto had all the players scoring at least a field goal , it was great to see the new pick ups , Bruno and Bebe , playing 12 minutes each and scoring some spectacular points .
The back-court was sustained as always by K Lowry who had a fabulous 1st half and instead of Demar (who had a so-so night) , by Lou Williams, who scored a season-high 22 points while draining 5 of 7 3s Friday. The guard totaled 48 points over the two previous games.
Interesting words from Coach Dwane Casey who was thrilled that his team didn’t overlook the Bucks with the impending trip to Cleveland looming.
“I thought the mental focus was great,” “Nobody in that locker room was even talking about (Saturday) night. If we’re going to be an elite team or grow to be an elite team in this league, we’ve got to make sure we care of business and take care of what’s in front of us.”
On the other side, The Cavs took had another bad night in Washington , hitting 36.0 percent from the floor – 6 for 27 from beyond the arc – while losing 91-78 , with their lowest-scoring game of the season. The team chemistry is not something they can come up with overnight .
A big star , like Kevin Love, has struggled in his new surroundings, averaging only 15.9 points and shooting 38.8 percent. He is taking five fewer shots per game than last season and his offensive rebounding average has dropped from a career average of 3.7 to just 1.8. Irving, who had made three or more 3-pointers in five straight games (18-of-31), went 0-for-6 against the Wizards.
Toronto is hot right now and Cleveland is cold as ice.
