The Toronto Raptors hate to see the Cavs on their schedule. Here is why! The Cavs are 2-1 in the first game of the playoffs, LeBron James teams have won 22 consecutive Eastern Conference playoff games. Cleveland has won 11 of the last 12 playoff games against Toronto. LeBron James continues to keep the Cleveland Cavs in the win column. And the beat continues!
