When the Toronto Raptors travel to Cleveland to play the Cavaliers on Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. ET, they will be looking for their third straight victory.

WHERE TO WATCH

For Toronto, the game will be called by Sportsnet and FAN 590. Cleveland will be covered by WTAM 1100, 100.7 WMMS, and Bally Sports Ohio.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

This year, Toronto will face an 8-8 Cavaliers team that offers a chance to break the.500 mark. Since their victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on opening night, the Raptors have not had a winning record in the current campaign.

The Cavaliers have an offensive and defensive rating that is lower than Toronto’s and have yet to establish themselves on either side of the ball. The Raptors will have an opportunity to escape Cleveland with a significant victory against one of the top teams in the East from the previous season on the second night of a back-to-back for the Cavaliers.

These days, stopping the Cavaliers means limiting Donovan Mitchell, who averages 28.5 points per game and shoots 38.9% from three-point range. As the Raptors attempt to stall Cleveland’s offense at the point of attack, expect Toronto to start Scottie Barnes and OG Anunoby in the game.

INJURY REPORTS

Gradey Dick is still playing for Toronto in the G League. Due to illness, Christian Koloko is still not well.

Cleveland’s injury report is still pending. The only Cavaliers player missing Saturday’s contest was Dean Wade.

GAME ODDS

The Raptors have an implied win probability of 50% and are underdogs by +1 point. The game has a total of 220.5.
