But with the rest of the field, particularly in the Eastern Conference, it's anyone's game. Some might find it a bit surprising that with the recent slides by the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics, the Toronto Raptors have emerged as the Eastern Conference team with the best chance to win the NBA championship, according to the SportsLine computer model projections.
