=== Toronto Raptors Team Report – March 10 ===

(Sports Network) – A battle of Eastern Conference teams with playoff dreams
takes place tonight, as the Toronto Raptors welcome the streaking Cleveland
Cavaliers to Air Canada Centre.

Cleveland is tied with Miami for eighth place in the conference, while the
Raptors trail the Cavs and Heat by just one game.

This is the third meeting of the season between the two teams. Toronto has won
the two previous contests, winning once at home and once on the road.

The Raptors have won three of the last four contests with the Cavaliers, who
have lost two straight and nine of their last 10 at Toronto. These two teams
have split the last six meetings.

Toronto is 15-16 at home this season.

On Tuesday, the Raptors lost to the Indiana Pacers, 94-84, at Conseco
Fieldhouse. Vince Carter scored a game-high 28 points for Toronto, which has
lost 12 of its last 14 games overall.

Chris Bosh contributed 19 points with eight rebounds and Donyell Marshall had
13 points and 13 boards. The newly-acquired Rod Strickland added 14 points to
go along with seven rebounds and a season-high 16 assists for the Raptors, who
lost for the third time in four games.
