3rd Quarter Report

Only one more quarter stands between the Cavaliers and the win they were favored to collect coming into this evening. It's still anybody's game after three quarters, but they are currently ahead of the Raptors 74-72. This contest is far closer than the pair's previous matchup, which was decided by 25 points.

If the Cavaliers keep playing like this, they'll bump their record up to 9-8 in no time. On the other hand, the Raptors will have to make due with an 8-9 record unless they turn things around (and fast).

What to Know

Having just played yesterday, the Cleveland Cavaliers will get right back to it and host the Toronto Raptors at 7:30 p.m. ET on November 26th at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The Cavaliers are out to stop a three-game streak of losses at home.

The point spread may have favored the Cavaliers on Saturday, but the final result did not. They fell to Los Angeles 121-115.

The loss doesn't tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Jarrett Allen, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 14 rebounds. The team also got some help courtesy of Evan Mobley, who scored 18 points along with 6 assists and 6 rebounds.

Meanwhile, winning is just a little bit easier when you work as a team to rack up 12 more assists than your opponent, a fact the Raptors proved on Friday. They walked away with a 121-108 victory over Chicago. The win made it back-to-back wins for the Raptors.

Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead the Raptors to victory, but perhaps none more so than OG Anunoby, who scored 26 points along with 6 rebounds. Anunoby continues to roll, besting his previous point total in each of the last four games he's played.

The losses dropped Cleveland to 8-8 and Los Angeles to 10-7.

Looking ahead to Sunday, the Cavaliers are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 3.5 points. Bettors picking them against the spread have some confidence (to put it mildly), as the team is sitting on a three-game streak of failing to cover when expected to win.

Everything went the Cavaliers' way against the Raptors in their previous matchup back in February as the Cavaliers made off with a 118-93 victory. Will the Cavaliers repeat their success, or do the Raptors have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.


Cleveland is a 3.5-point favorite against Toronto, according to the latest NBA odds.

The line has drifted a bit towards the Cavaliers, as the game opened with the Cavaliers as a 1.5-point favorite.

The over/under is set at 222.5 points.
