Coming off of a crushing defeat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Toronto Raptors have a lot to prove in the second game of the series on May 19 at 8:30 p.m. EST against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Surely that will make for some intense action, and you can watch it all via live stream right here!
The Cleveland Cavaliers are absolutely on fire, holding a flawless 9-0 record in the NBA playoffs as they go into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Toronto Raptors on May 19. As LeBron James and the Cavs look to get their 10th win in a row, the Raptors have a different kind of motivation as they gear up for the game: Don’t get crushed. So who will come out victorious? Watch the live stream and find out!
It won’t be easy for the Raptors, even if they have Drake on their side, to give the Cavs their first loss of the postseason, as they suffered a tough 115-84 loss in their first game against the Cavaliers just two days ago. Ironically, that score is almost exactly the same as the one that pushed the Raptors over the Miami Heat in the conference semi-finals, which probably made the loss even more painful to bear. But the Raptors are obviously capable of scoring as high as the Cavaliers, so they won’t be going down without a fight!
In fact, even the power team isn’t expecting to blow out the Raptors like that in every game. LeBron himself admitted that they’re still prepared for a tough battle! “I think don’t think we have complacency in our minds,” he said, according to NBA.com. “We have a goal and our goal is not nine wins. I’ve won nine games before. I’ve won 14 games before. We will face some adversity.”
Considering LeBron is the man to beat on the court — who hardly missed in Game 1, scoring 24 points in the three quarters of play — that’s a big compliment to the Raptors. Clearly he thinks the Raptors won’t be an easy team to beat, even if it seemed that way in the first game! This is bound to be an exciting game, so make sure you don’t miss it!
