As GP points out below, a tough night coming for the Raptors, especially given they had an annoying and hard fought loss against the Bulls the day before.

The Cavs are starting to become a little Spurs-ey and are quietly going about their business now. They have crept up to 0.710 which is good enough for 3rd in the League, just ahead of the Thunder. While they trail San Antonio, the Spurs have had 20 home games and the Cavs have only had 15 at home.

The Knicks have a game off today but I have to say I agree with Zach Lowe in regard to their good win yesterday over the Hawks

GP adds:

As far as the schedule goes tomorrow, there are not too many issues. The Raptors, Heat and Blazers are all backing up from yesterday. The toughest draw of those is for the Raptors who are playing their back to back in Cleveland against the Cavs. If the Raptors can pull off the win it will pull the Cavs back to the pack a bit more. That’s the right way to describe the East right now too, Packed! 2.5 games covers 2nd from 8th and after that, there is only 3 games for 8th back to the 12th placed Knicks.
