The reigning champs, led by powerhouse forward LeBron James, 31, dominated the New York Knicks on Oct. 25 in the season home opener, 117-88. James, along with Kyrie Irving, 24, and Kevin Love, 28, prepare to keep their winning streak alive against the Raptors on Friday night. The red and white Raptors, however, are also ready to win, after dominating a strong opener against the Detroit Pistons. DeMar DeRozan, 27, one of Toronto’s biggest threats, set the franchise-record for eighth consecutive opening night starts, per NBA.com, and broke Vince Carter’s, 39, record for 40 points in an opening game.
The last time these two teams met, the Cavs dominated in a 113-87 Game 6 victory, which ultimately led the wine and gold to beat Golden State Warriors in the finals. However, their 6-game match-up wasn’t without some built-up angst and trash-talking, especially from rapper and self-proclaimed “Raptor global ambassador,” Drake, according to USA Today.
You may recall when Drake posted to Instagram a photo of LeBron crying after the Raptors won Game 3, 99-84. He captioned the photo “Flying home for Game 4. Drake sure did show up and chided LeBron the entire game, so much to the point LeBron turned around and yelled at him after dunking! Whoa. Yes, that happened. So, the rivalry is clearly real between these teams and you don’t want to miss it!
