NBA Playoff Prediction: Cleveland versus Toronto

The 76ers will battle the Celtics in the first Eastern Conference semifinal, but who will win in the other semifinal between the Cavaliers and the Raptors?

Cleveland Cavaliers versus Toronto Raptors

The Cavaliers needed seven to take down the Pacers in the first round, while the Raptors defeated the Wizards in six. Cleveland won two of the three meetings between the teams this season and hold a +27 to +24 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. Similarly, they had the advantage on the Team Strength Oscillator, “burning hot” versus “average”. Neither team is in the top ten in Team Volatility, so favorite and underdog status will not be a reliable gauge for predictions. Despite home court advantage, all oscillators point to a clear advantage for Cleveland. While it wont be a walk in the park, the Cavaliers will take this series in six or seven to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

  1. Go Toronto! Please Please please dump the Cleveland and especially Tristan Thompson. I don't want him to ever win a cup.
  2. Nobody has a great team, but as for me Cleveland is the most balanced. That portends them being the one to pick for the division
