NBA Playoffs:

Charles Barkley Makes Bold LeBron Claim Ahead of Cleveland vs Toronto

Toronto Raptors will beat the Cleveland Cavaliers to reach the conference finals, Charles Barkley claims.

LeBron James guided the Cavaliers past the Indiana Pacers last weekend, with the 33-year-old scoring 45 points in a thrilling Game 7 to sink Nate McMillan’s side.

The three-time NBA champion is currently averaging 34 points in the playoffs, with the small forward also playing 41 minutes per game.

James’ stunning performance against the Pacers set up a conference semi-final clash with the Raptors, who finished with the best regular-season record in the East.

It’s the third consecutive year that Cleveland will face Toronto in the playoffs, with James and co sweeping the series 4-0 last season.

And former Phoenix Suns power forward Barkley reckons the Raptors will beat the Cavaliers, claiming James doesn’t have enough help to beat DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
