TOR VS CLE DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction 2nd May – Fantasy Team News
Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, Game 1
TOR VS CLE DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Forget about Boston Celtics and their envious history and all the large fan base they boast about, the match that Eastern Conference has been waiting with baited breath is just around the corner. Though many would argue, Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers is a dream matchup, but the Greens don’t pack the same punch as they do when Kyrie Irving is fit and firing. But the former Cleveland Cavaliers Point-Guard is injured and that’s why Celtics are no more the same team.
So it’s Toronto Raptors, the leaders of Eastern Conference, playing against Cleveland Cavaliers in the semifinals or should we say Raptors vs LeBron James after what happened with Cavaliers in the first round against Indiana Pacers.
Raptors have been exceptional throughout the regular season. They won a franchise-best 59 games and now faces a side against whom they have a 2-8 record in the postseason in the last two years. But this campaign they look like the best bet to turn the tide in their favors and with DeMar DeRozan getting an ample support from the likes of Kyle Lowry and Jonas Valanciunas, it’s fair to say Raptors could be in the finals of Eastern Conference.
For Cavaliers, the calculation is simple. All they need is to perform as a unit which they failed to do so drastically against the Indiana Pacers. Had it not been for the brilliance of LeBron James, Cavaliers’ players would have been watching the postseason action from the comfort of their homes.
So Cleveland’s fortunes revolve around how much points Cavaliers can get from the rest of the players because LeBron will certainly put the court on fire once again.

TOR VS CLE DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Toronto Raptors are at home in the first match of this series and considering they only lost 7 homes games in the regular season, gives the home team a significant advantage in this particular match.
However, throughout the series between Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers we witnessed that LeBron James can easily be called a Meta-Human or X-Men after his herculean efforts which single-handedly helped his team beat Indiana Pacers.
So the question is can Raptors stop James, and if they do their victory is certain. Though he can’t be stopped but he can certainly be contained to some extent.
We are backing Toronto Raptors to do just that and a win for the home team in this match is our prediction.
