The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics stumbling into the All-Star Break. The Raptors are making their move. They have won four of their last six games entering Tuesday’s affair. One of those recent losses was in Minnesota. They lost 115-109 on January 20, so the Raptors will be looking for some revenge.
