Free Pick May 23 From Will Rogers
NBA Playoffs 2016 Eastern Conference Finals Game 4
Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors
Take Over 197
The Toronto Raptors had no answer in Cleveland, allowing the Cavs to jump out to big leads in each of the first two games of this series. The Raptors actually played well in the first half of Game 2, until they collapsed in the final two minutes of the half. I expect to see a better effort offensively from the Cavs as they try to avoid a second straight loss in Toronto in Game 4.
Here are my keys to the game:
1. Previous History – Five of the last eight meetings between these two teams have gone over the total, and the over is 4-2 in Toronto’s last six when playing on one day’s rest. After trending under at the beginning of the post-season, Toronto has now gone over in four of six overall.
2. LeBron James – The King scored just 24 points in Game 1, but he shot 11-of-13 from the field. He only played 28 minutes, and he recorded a triple-double in Game 2. He had 24 points again in Game 3, but I expect him to go for 30 plus tonight.
3. X-Factor – The Cavs demolished the previous record for the most three-pointers in a game in their series versus Atlanta, and we know they can get hot from long range at any time.
