The Toronto Raptors will once again face the Cleveland Cavaliers in their Eastern Conference semifinal, starting Tuesday night. Raptors head coach Dwane Casey says confidence is important, regardless of the opposing team. (April 30, 2018) 1. SOUNDBITE: DeMar DeRozan, Raptors guard 2.

On the heels of their most successful regular season in franchise history, the Raptors set their sights on a long post-season run that they hope takes them all the way to the final. They'll have to go through Cleveland once again to get there. DeMar DeRozan says bring on the Cavaliers. ``Gotta go through the best to get to that trophy, every step of the way we're going to come across somebody. So why not the guy that's been in the finals the last X amount of years,'' DeRozan said. ``Why we don't want to be the team that knock that team off? That's what it's all about. ``As a competitor you want to be in the moments, you want to thrive in the moments, and we have the opportunity again to be able to do that.'' Two days after dispatching the Washington Wizards in six games in the opening round of the playoffs, the Raptors watched the Cavaliers edge the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 on Sunday, then held practice at Biosteel Centre to prepare for Cleveland. There's been plenty of talk about the Cavs being Toronto's bugaboo _ they eliminated the Raptors the past two seasons with not much trouble.
