And on the seventh day, an Eastern Conference finals opponent finally emerged for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After a weeklong layoff, the Cavs were finally able to rejoice in the knowledge of what team they will be facing in Tuesday’s Game 1 (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) following the Toronto Raptors’ decisive 116-89 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 7 of their second round series on Sunday. “They’re ready to play,” Lue said. “I think [Sunday], it was a relief. Now we know who we’re playing and now we can get focused and now we can lock in on what we’re trying to do.”
