    Default Most memorable or greatest Raptors regular season game you've watched?

    Can't remember if it was 2001 or 2002. Nuggets vs Raptors. Duel between VC and Nick Van Exel.

    Nuggets up by 3 with 2-3 secs remaining in the game. Carter attempted a long 3, he missed but got fouled by a Nuggets player. Obviously he needed to make all 3 Ft's or else its game over, he did.

    Then in overtime, VC and Van Exel were hitting crazy shots after crazy shots. I remember the Nuggets had a 1 pt lead with 3-5 secs remaining. Carter then hit a LONG 3 to win the game for the Raptors. Crowd went bananas LOL!

    Anyone here remember that game? Greatest Raptors regular season game ever!

    it was the home game vs the clips and rudy just got traded over.
    he wasn't expected to play but when he showed up...holy fuckin shit
    i screamed so damn loud honestly
    that game was so amazing we smacked the clips by like 40 points
    rudy had a buzzer beater trey ball at the end of the second
    and his first bucket was a free throw but hes first real bucket was a dunk of a demar lob from half court
    honestly i could write a fuckin book about that game
    and for some reason i had to listen to the clippers announcer
    and i was so cheezed cuz they didnt even care what was going on and how electricfied the building was, they only cared about praising griffin and his ability to shoot free throws
    i was so mad i missed out leo and jacks expressions and the vibes they were sending out
    damn it

    leggo rudy gay era!!!

    Has to be Kings game from 2001 that went to 3 OT. Crazy shots, back and forth action. Plus Stojakovic & Divac fans were going HAM that night, so there was a real back & forth vibe in the stands

    Yeah, I was at that game too. It was by far the most memorable Raptors game I've attended. Freakin crazy. It felt like the teams were playing for the fate of the universe....and it just kept going!

    Also VC dropping 50 in the playoffs was crazy. I have never felt the ACC like that

    Ya, Rudy Gay's first game was pretty memorable too because there was a buzz in the building way before the game even started. Buzz that i've never heard before since VC left. And the place was electric all game long. 'Rudy' 'Rudy' chant was awesome.

    Raps taking down the 72 win Bulls.
    And I always liked the game that Carter won on a last second two hand dunk against I think SA, after he pointed at a non-existent screen and completely tooled the Spurs defender.

    I know it's not a great game to remember, but I always remember the game against Golden State in the last year Bosh was here. When he missed that last layup that could've basically clinched our playoff spot, and he missed, I almost cried. :P

    October 28, 2009 Home opener vs Cleveland. Raptors beat LeBron James, Shaq & Company 101-91 - I bought floor seats (for my wife's birthday) You would have believed you were at a playoff game - the crowd was that into the game from the tip. (Andrea Bargnani led the team with 28 points - there was hope for him back then)

    Playoff games were better - but that was about as good as a regular season game gets - there is something special about Raptors home openers.

    I remember talking to Ed Stefanski after he got here - he thought the Dec 26, 2011 home opener vs Cleveland was like a playoff game (poor guy had to watch the Sixers & Nets as an executive prior to coming to Toronto)
    The best Raptors discussion board is at Raptors Republic.

    Wizards vs. Raptors,
    March 30th, 2007



    Mo Pete takes us into overtime, Michael Ruffin with the assist. I think that was my most memorable game. It made me a die-hard Mo Pete and Raptors fan (I was like 10 years old).

    The most disappointing game was against the hawks in 2008 on the 2nd of April. (8th last game of the season)

    Near the end of the 4th with 0.5 seconds left the Raptors, coming out of a timeout with the score tied being at 107:107, have the ball on the inbound (on the left side). Sam Mitchell came up with an awesome plan to get an open shot. Carlos Delfino has the ball. With the Hawks playing man-to-man D, the Raptors line-up near the top of the arch facing Carlos. T.J. being near front of the line looses his man by pushing himself through a double screen set by two of guys behind him, that giving him a clear lane to basket. Now it's up to Delfino, even though he was tightly guarded he still managed to toss up a perfect pass to the hoop. T.J. Ford leaps up high and grabs the ball slamming it down within 0.5 seconds, that being enough time to win the game. Raptors win!!! WRONG! officials at the Phillips arena started the clock 0.3 seconds too early, therefore the horn sounded just barely before T.J. managed to slam it home. The on-court officials reviewed it for time seemingly to be hours. Their final verdict: No basket!. Coach Sam was furious and the Raptors loose in overtime due to poor officiating.

    (It was kind of a meaningful game for the Raptors because they were in the playoff race (they came in 6th 2 games behind Washington). If the Hawks lost that game and the rest of the season turned out the way it did, then they would have missed the playoffs and let Indiana in instead.)

    I don't know why I remember it so much ... I guess I was just really disappointed.

    The most memorable for me isn't even a game we won. It's the game where Vince and Mo Pete slapped each other and Mo Pete got ejected. Then VC drained a 3 from fuckin 30 feet away with .1 seconds left.
    Basically, I broke some shit in my living room when it ended.
