Will Toronto Raptors Get Swept?

Posted by Jay Sanin on 5/22/2016 4:45:02 AM

It has been a nightmare start to the Eastern Conference Finals for the Toronto Raptors, who faced long odds before the start of this series, which have only grown longer after two disastrous blowout losses at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now in a position where elimination seems imminent, the question becomes whether or not the Raptors will see their season end with being swept by LeBron James and company.

Toronto Raptors Outmanned

There isn't just one or two things separating the Cavaliers and Raptors in this series. Cleveland is just better than the Raptors from top to bottom, and it's not even close. With the Cavaliers finally being healthy deep into the playoffs and the Raptors suffering an injury at the worst possible time, things have combined to highlight a vast gap in talent between the two sides that an odds calculator would show you that the Raptors' chances of winning in this series are astronomical.

Toronto's injury came to center Jonas Valenciunas, who was a productive offensive center for the Raptors this season. Since his departure, Bismack Biyombo has done well in his place, but hasn't been able to sustain that high level of play in the Eastern Conference Finals against a Cavaliers team that is able to spread the floor and limit the effectiveness of an under the basket player like Biyombo. As a result, it looks like the Cavaliers will get a sweep in this series.

Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Spread

The Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers spread is guaranteed to be in Cleveland's favor regardless of where each remaining game in this series is played, which makes sense after the two destructions of Toronto that Cleveland pulled off in the first two games of the series. Toronto will need Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan to step up in big ways if they want any chance to come back in this series, but it doesn't even seem like home court advantage will be enough to help the Raptors get back into the series, and it looks like Cleveland will walk to their second straight NBA Finals appearance.
