Cleveland Cavaliers at Toronto Raptors - 5/5/17 NBA Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

As it happened, that was the second alcohol-related moment in this series for James, who apparently feels about as threatened by the Raptors as a bouncer does by a cocktail fork.

He's the type of player that can help break Tottenham's press and get Manchester United at the back line.
