OPENING TIP Well, it appears everyones a go for the Cavaliers and there are no injuries or illnesses dominating the social media website. Nice change, isnt it? More importantly, the Cavs aim to use the second half of the season to continue the process of learning to finish. And, of course, learning how to play well for all four quarters. Venue: Air Canada Centre, Toronto. TVRadio: 5:30 p.m. EST, FOX Sports OhioWTAM All-Time Series: Cavs lead, 38-30. PROJECTED STARTERS CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (21-41) C Tyler Zeller PF Tristan Thompson SF Alonzo Gee SG Dion Waiters PG Kyrie Irving TORONTO RAPTORS (24-39) C Jonas Valanciunas PF Amir Johnson SF Rudy Gay SG DeMar DeRozan PG Kyle Lowry Pregame notes: Raptors forward Andrea Bargnani suffered a strained right elbow in the first quarter the other night vs. the Lakers. He is not expected to play. That will likely move Johnson into the starting lineup. He came off the bench March 4 vs. Golden State to shoot 10-for-10 from the floor and collect 10 rebounds. The guy is vastly underrated. The Raptors are ranked 27th in the NBA in points in the paint, but are improving rapidly. Theyve scored 40-plus in that area in four consecutive games. Eighteen of the Raptors final 19 games take place against Eastern Conference opponents. This is the fourth and final meeting between the Cavs and Raptors this season.
