Raps better win this in 6 or else they will have Mr. Game 7 to deal with. Any outcome is possible except for Raps in 7.

Raps in 5 or 6. Cavs will win a game due Lebron being amazing, but will lose another while Lebron scores 45.

Erratic Love will drop 34 on the Raptors randomly. Korver will score 22 in one game.

Cavs in 7.

Home teams win the first 6, then LeBron scores 45 and game winner in game 7.

Then we get 100 threads about how the raps choked / are trash and beating them is no accomplishment, how LeBron got carried by his 11ppg team mates and the corrupt refs, and how it doesn't matter what LeBron does in the 2nd round because 6/6 > 3/9.

Toronto needs to do what the Atlanta Hawks did against Dwight Howard and the Magic in the 2011 playoffs; Let the star player knock himself out and stop his supporting crew.

If the King scores 40 points so be it. Make sure you play the other 4 guys Cleveland puts on the floor very well.

Let Bron get his points; contain the rest of the Cavs.

In 2011, Dwight had a 46 point 19 rebound game against the Hawks, but he got so little help they lost.

Basically, if LeBron scores 39 but the rest of the Cavs don't do their stuff, they ain't winning.

Also similar to Celtics/Wizards last year and Boston stopping the non-Wall/Beal guys.

Unless someone else steps up and provides consistent scoring for the land, this series may be beyond even LeBron's mercy.

Like, what if Tristan's game 7 was a one-game fluke ala Kelly Olynyk last year in game 7 vs. Washington?

Lets go choke artists, you can do this Raptors

Goal here is dominate the front court, cut the guards. Lebron can get his and still easily lose.

Raptors in 7, Lebron will dominate as usual but the defense of the cavs will be the reason for their downfall. Raptors offense is leagues above the pacers. Wouldn’t be surprised if the raptors go for 110+ points every single game

Cavs in 5 Raptors are weak compared to the Pacers.

Toronto has been the better team all season long and it hasn't been particularly close. This is easily the best shot they've ever had at beating LeBron and their depth should give the Cavs a lot of trouble.

Cavs in 6.
