The Toronto Raptors are seen as the only team who can stop the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference. 

They were the only organisation to win a game against the Cavs as they charged to the finals, but were nowhere near taking a W away from the Quicken Loans Arena. 

That is their major problem. While the Air Canada Centre proved to be the boost the Raptors needed to take two games in the series, they were blown out on three separate occasions in Ohio. 

With new campaign just a week away, Toronto's leader Kyle Lowry is targeting number one spot in the Eastern Conference as the Raptors look for a way to topple the Wine and Gold. 

"We couldn't win a game (in Cleveland) in the playoffs, couldn't get close," he admitted to David Aldridge of

"We have to find a way to win a game on the road, especially them having the 1-seed. But maybe our chance is to get that 1-seed. That would help, to have home-court advantage."

Cleveland have been notoriously slow starters over the past two seasons and Toronto will need to take full advantage if they are to stand any chance of being the top seed.
