The Raptors’ away win against the Orlando Magic last time out was their 12 in their last 13 games, and they are now top of the Eastern Conference with a 53-18 record.
Toronto haven’t lost on the road since 2 February, and it’s hard to see them doing so against the inconsistent Cavaliers.

Brooklyn Nets to beat Charlotte Hornets –
The Nets have won back-to-back games for the first time since 21 January, and they should earn their first three-game winning streak of the season by beating the Hornets on Wednesday night.
Charlotte were beaten 108-94 by the 76ers in Philadelphia on Monday night, and have now lost eight of their last 10 games.
The Hornets have lost six of their last seven on the road, and they were beaten 125-111 when these teams last met in Charlotte on 8 March.
Milwaukee Bucks to beat Los Angeles Clippers –
The Clippers’ defeat to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night was their fourth in a row, and their away record now stands at 17-18.

Milwaukee have a home record of 22-14, and are 14-10 against teams from the West this season.
San Antonio Spurs to beat Washington Wizards –
The Spurs have turned their form around after a recent blip, winning their last four, including an 89-75 victory at home to the Golden State Warriors last time out.
San Antonio have won five in a row at home, and their 27-8 record on their own court is the joint-second best in the Western Conference.
