Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors

After a thrilling Game 7 victory in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Miami Heat, the Toronto Raptors have managed to successfully make it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. The one-two punch of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan has been a staple of the Raptors attack for a number of seasons now, and it seems, after years of disappointment, everything has finally come together for the team as they give themselves a chance to compete (potentially for the NBA championship).

As for Cleveland (and especially for LeBron James), competing late into the Playoff calendar has become business as usual, essentially.

With the renewed energy and vision of coach Tyron Lue, a healthy roster, and a focused James, Cleveland certainly give themselves a chance to repeat as Eastern Conference champions, and a repeat trip to the NBA Finals.

Thunder and Warriors face-off in the West

Many in the NBA world are probably still shocked over the fact that the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to top the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Semi's. In fact, most analysts, casters, and fans alike probably pegged San Antonio to take on Golden State. That said, with the duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, you can never quite count out the Thunder when it comes to putting games away and coming away with the win.

Speaking of business as usual, it seems to be just another day at the office for the Warriors.

After completing an NBA-best and record-setting 73 win season, the Warriors have been projected to repeat as NBA champions long before this season even started. All-Star Point Guard Stephen Curry was out of action for much of the last series, but, thanks to Golden State's depth, his absence was essentially a non-issue when it came to winning games.

Overall, this should be an exciting time for viewers everywhere. Barring some upsets, it wouldn't be surprising at all if we see a finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.
