Cavs Going for Sweep in Eastern Conference Semifinals

2017 Nba Playoffs Cavs

Raptors in Must Win Against the Cavs

Air Canada Centre will host the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday. Cleveland is out to a 3-0 lead in the series.

The Raptors must win Sunday  if they are to extend the best-of-seven series. They do not want to end their season losing on their home court.

Oddsmakers opened the Cavaliers as -5.5-point favorites versus the Raptors, while the game’s total opened at 214.5. The Cavs are now 6.5-point favorites and the total has dropped to 212.5.

Toronto was a 115-94 loser in Game 3 of the series. They failed to cover the +3-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 209 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window. Point guard Kyle Lowry said Saturday it is doubtful that he will be able to play Sunday. He has a sprained left ankle. Lowry, an All-Star, suffered the injury early in the second half of Game 2. He wanted to try playing in Game 3 Friday. Lowry finally give up the effort and heeded the advice of the medical staff.

The Cavaliers won their first 10 playoff games last year. They went on and won the NBA championship. The Cavs are 7-0 so far in the postseason this year. LeBron James, who scored 35 points to lead the Cavaliers on Friday should lead the way again today.
