CLEVELAND: LAST SEASON: 50-32, lost in NBA Finals.
COACH: Tyronn Lue (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G George Hill (10.0 ppg), G Rodney Hood (14.7 ppg), F Kevin Love (17.6 ppg), F Cedi Osman (3.9 ppg), C Tristan Thompson (5.8 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F LeBron James, F Jeff Green, G Jose Calderon
KEY ADDITIONS: Rookie G Collin Sexton, F David Nwaba, F Sam Dekker
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Sexton and Osman. The No. 8 overall pick in the NBA draft, Sexton could fill the massive void left when the Cavs granted Kyrie Irving's trade demand and dealt him to Boston last year. Hill can adequately hold down the fort while Sexton, more of a slasher than shooter, develops. Lue will be patient with Sexton, but it may not take long for him to force his way into the starting lineup. Osman has the misfortune of being the player to take the spot owned by James. But the 23-year-old is fearless, very talented and he learned a ton while being teammates with the world's best player.
OUTLOOK: Forget the Finals. After four straight June matchups with Golden State, the Cavs will have a tough time even making the playoffs. Love has gone from being the third option, to the second to the first and it will be interesting to see if the All-Star can carry the Cavs the way he carried Minnesota for six seasons. The Cavs have no intention of tanking, and head into the season trying to stay competitive while developing young players ' and that's not easy.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 59-23, lost in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (16.2 ppg, career-high, 5.6 rpg), G Danny Green (8.6 ppg, San Antonio), F Kawhi Leonard (16.2 ppg in nine games, San Antonio), F Serge Ibaka (112.6 ppg), C Jonas Valanciunas (12.7 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G DeMar DeRozan, F Jakob Poeltl
KEY ADDITIONS: Leonard, Green, C Greg Monroe
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Leonard will be under intense scrutiny in his first season with Toronto, and his last before free agency. A former Defensive Player of the Year and NBA Finals MVP, Leonard was limited to nine games last season because of a thigh injury, and his relationship with the Spurs soured during his lengthy rehab. The Raptors will hope Leonard likes his time north of the border enough to sign a long-term deal with Toronto next summer.
OUTLOOK: A lot has changed since Toronto set a franchise record with 59 wins last season. The Raptors fired
COACH of the Year Dwane Casey and replaced him with Nurse, a first-time NBA head
COACH. Toronto also traded franchise icon DeMar DeRozan and C Jakob Poeltl to acquire Leonard and Green from the Spurs. The Raptors need to brush aside the issue of Leonard's future and use the regular season to get comfortable together so they can focus on postseason success.
Raptors host Cavaliers in matchup of new-look clubs

TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers have become familiar foes in the Eastern Conference, in the regular season and the playoffs.

Fittingly, they will open the season Wednesday night in Toronto, however with different looks.

The Cavaliers no longer have LeBron James, who is with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Among the missing from the Raptors is DeMar DeRozan, who was traded to the San Antonio Spurs in a deal that netted Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.

The Raptors also have a new coach in Nick Nurse after Dwane Casey was fired and took over as coach of the Detroit Pistons.

James, a four-time MVP, averaged 27.5 points last season, so Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he feels that he knows what is required.

"We have to do it by committee," Lue said. "We're going to need five or six guys in double figures and I think we have that ability."

He said it means playing an up-tempo game.

"We're going to have to and if not, guys are going to sit down," Lue said. "We've got to play with pace. That's the style we want to play, everyone's involved that way, I think everyone has fun playing that way."

Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith has been listed as doubtful for the season opener because of a sore right elbow. He had an MRI Monday that showed no structural damage.

Cleveland center/forward Larry Nance Jr., recently signed to a four-year contract, has been dealing with a sprained right ankle but practiced Tuesday.

"It's feeling great," Nance said. "Made a ton of progress. It's still black and blue, but it feels great. I ran around, jumped, blocked a couple shots (Tuesday) so I feel good doing everything. We'll see what (Wednesday) brings."

Nance is expected to share the role of starting center Tristan Thompson, who will likely be used against the bigger centers.

The Raptors were 4-1 in exhibition games.

Giving up their leading scorer and fan favorite DeRozan for Leonard, who can depart after one season, was a risk that the Raptors were willing to take after repeated playoff failures.

Nurse said he feels that the Cavaliers could be dangerous even without James, whose brilliance was a major barrier to the Raptors progressing deeper into the postseason in recent years.

"I think the thing with Cleveland is they're going to come in with an edge because James isn't there and they want to prove to the world that they can play a little bit without him," Nurse said. "I think I remember that Miami a couple of years ago (after James left) came out of the gates kind of like gangbusters, moving the ball and playing faster and doing all this stuff they wanted to do."

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said not knowing what to expect from Cleveland is a concern.

"They're probably going to play a different brand of basketball than we're used to seeing, so we have to be prepared for anything," Lowry said.

The Raptors are getting one of the top players in the league in Leonard, but he hardly played last season because of a quadriceps injury.

"So, you just need to play basketball, you know what I mean?" Leonard said. "Get in a rhythm, understanding what your schedule is, what you have ahead of you, and basketball starts coming easy. It's about finding a rhythm and getting games under my belt."

Nurse would not reveal his starting lineup for Wednesday.

"We've gotten a little closer to who we're going to run out there (Wednesday), but we're still not definite as to who the starters are," he said.

Delon Wright is questionable for Toronto because of a left thigh injury.

Leonard, OG Anunoby, Green, Serge Ibaka and Lowry are the likely starters for the Raptors.

Cedi Osman, Kevin Love, Thompson, Rodney Hood and George Hill are the possible starters for Cleveland.
