CLEVELAND– The Cavaliers toppled the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night, 112-106, so be prepared for the narrative to continue on that the Cavs are in Toronto’s heads come playoffs.
The score was not as close as it appeared, as the Cavs let Toronto get a few quick buckets within the final minute of the game to narrow their lead. But overall, the Cavs did a good job against Toronto of running a balanced offensive attack, and preventing their playmakers from getting too comfortable early.
Over the last 10 games, the Cavs are now 9-1, and have beaten Toronto twice during that span. What makes this stretch even more impressive is the fact that they are still not fully healthy, and are without their head coach.
“The way our guys have persevered through these last 10 (games) says a lot about the character of this team,” interim head coach Larry Drew said after the game. “I still think we’re scratching the surface. There’s certainly room for improvement in a lot of areas.”
Here are three takeaways from the win.
