Raptors-Hornets: Sometimes these things happen

It is interesting that Dwane Casey was in a far better mood post-game after Toronto’s loss against Charlotte on Wednesday, compared to his meeting with the media following the win over Orlando in the previous game. But the Raptors were better for most …

Raptors’ Joseph doing a fine job filling in for Lowry

Though DeMar DeRozan, Serge Ibaka and
P.J. Tucker have garnered most of the
attention over the past few weeks,
quietly, Cory Joseph has done a fine
job holding the fort for the injured
Kyle Lowry.

Raptors slippages on defence must not be tolerated

There was no sugar-coating how pathetic the Raptors defended, an effort so bad that no defence can be presented for the team’s defence.

Raptors-Magic: Locking things down, despite defensive hiccup

It’s important to keep in mind that Orlando is a truly awful basketball team, so there is no reason to go overboard when assessing Monday’s Raptors performance against them, but, that said, this group is looking strong. Six straight wins, mostly on the…

Raptors rip Magic for their sixth straight win [Photos] [Video]

It’s six for the team from the Six,
which would end up deep-sixing the
Orlando Magic on a night where plenty of
points would be scored, but very little
in the way of drama.

Raptors-Mavericks: Patterson back in form

When Patrick Patterson is feeling good and playing well, the Raptors are much better. His stats rarely stand out and many uninformed fans play down his impact because of that, but he’s a big X-factor for the club. He’s one of the smartest defenders in …

Raptors finding their groove at the right time

No longer is it a matter of whether the Raptors will open the first round of the NBA’s playoffs at home, more a question of when the inevitable becomes reality.

Raptors-Heat: DeRozan reaches a new level

DeMar DeRozan has never played better. P.J. Tucker has him motivated to make a difference defensively for the first time in his career, and somehow, his offence isn’t suffering for it. The Raptors were supposed to crumble without Kyle Lowry, who undisp…

With Tucker and Ibaka, Casey finally has Raptors team that’s willing to be physical

Dwane Casey may not share Brian Burke’s extended vocabulary, but the Raptors head coach has been asking for the same thing from his team that Burke famously demanded some 81/2 years ago when Burke took over the Maple Leafs.

the Raptors’ offensive and defensive

Raptors-Bulls: Fight, comeback, streak dead, maximum entertainment [Photos]

What a truly bizarre game. The first half or Raptors-
Bulls was one of the dullest of the entire season (if
Rajon Rondo morphing into Ray Allen is the only
interesting that happens over two quarters, youare
watching something awful). However, the ne…

Raptors coach Dwane Casey loving way rookie Jakob Poeltl’s game is developing

Through the absence of Kyle Lowry and the angst behind a team that was floundering there for a while, there was an area of recent progress on the Raptors roster that kind of got overlooked.

Raptors-Pacers: Another fine performance

The NBA schedule-making robot/person is getting roasted lately for good reason. Weird things have been happening and they can’t blame a marketing event for screwing up things like the NHL has due to that pre-season tournament they had. Yes, they’ve bee…
