ECF: Cavs have upper hand going into Game 6

In a series that begs the question; just how good is the home cooking? The Cavs lead 3-2 after a hard fought battle in Game 4 in Toronto and an absolute thrashing of the Raptors again back in the comfy confines of the Q in Cleveland in Game 5.

The season series has seen the two best teams in the East never lose at home. A good sign, if you’re a Cavs fan, having home court advantage. It also has you wishing this team could go up North and stick their foot on the proverbial throat and end this in Game 6.
