After defeating the Milwaukee Bucks in six games, the Raptors will engage in a playoff rematch with the Cavaliers. Last year’s Eastern Conference Finals saw Cleveland bounce Toronto in six games.

During the season the Raptors struggled to beat the Cavaliers, managing to win just one game out of the four game regular season series.

The second seed Cavaliers easily swept the Indiana Pacers in the first round.
