The Raptors will look to sweep their three-game road trip on Monday night as they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Toronto has looked great defensively on the trip so far, holding both New Orleans and Miami to 104 points. Expect that trend to continue as Cleveland doesn't possess the offensive punch most teams do. In fact, the Cavs average the second least points per game at 103.7.
Where the Cavs do excel is their efficiency from three and protection of the rock. Cleveland ranks in the top ten in both three-point percentage and turnovers. Simply put the Cavs knock down threes, and don't turn it over so we're going to have to beat them, they won't beat themselves.
Only Fred VanVleet and Jordan Loyd appear on the injury report as of Monday morning. No word on if Kawhi Leonard or Kyle Lowry will go on Monday night.
• The Raptors tied their franchise record for 3-pointers made in a game in Sunday's win over the Heat with 21 made threes.
• If Toronto wins tonight, it will be their first time sweeping the Cavaliers since the 2000-01 season.
• The Raptors improved to 21-12 on the road with yesterday's win, marking a sixth straight season the Raptors have earned a winning road record since 2013-14. Last season, the Raptors won a franchise-best 25 road games last year.
• The Cavaliers are 12-2 in their last 14 matchups at The Q versus Toronto (regular season and playoffs).
• In Friday's game against the Heat, Collin Sexton moved past Kyrie Irving (73 3PM in 2011-12) for the most threes made in a single-season by a Cavaliers rookie.
