Fit player to watch: LeBron James (Cavs)
“The King” will be on a mission when the Cavs travel across the border to play the Raptors. Despite being in his 15th season in the league, James is proving why he's arguably the best player in the world, putting up some fantastic numbers, averaging 27.2 points, his most since the 09-10 season, along with 8.2 rebounds and nine assists per game, a career-best and second in the NBA. James works out as hard as anyone in the league, including with his ‘crazy core’ routine, and that’s helped fuel what could be another MVP run for the Cavs star.
This will be the first matchup between the two teams this season, and it has a bit of extra intrigue with the Raptors recently taking the lead over the Cavs in the East standings. This will be the first game since the Cavs were blown out by the Wolves, so expect them to come out with some fire. The Raptors have been excellent at home, going 14-1 at their arena, and over the last 19 games they’ve been one of the best in the league, going 16-3 in that span.
