Raptors lose another “statement game” to Cleveland

by

Toronto Raptors 83, Cleveland Cavaliers 90 Depending on your Raptor beliefs you can look at this one in a few different ways: 1) All in all a good effort by the Raps, too much Lebron in the end 2) Jose sat for way too long in the third/fourth quarter during which time Cleveland went +6,   …Continue Reading


Sam Mitchell triggers Ford-led 4th quarter meltdown as Raptors end miserable swing

by

Toronto Raptors 79, Utah Jazz 96 The Raptors led by Jose Calderon had just finished a third quarter which had rescued this game from getting out of hand. The Raptors had slowed the tempo and the scoreboard down in the third quarter winning it 27-18 by playing gritty paint defense and by riding Jose Calderon’s   …Continue Reading


TJ Ford ball hogs in the fourth to kill any chance the Raptors might’ve had

Josh Smith, Amir Johnson

Toronto Raptors 87, Orlando Magic 102 Rarely are there instances where you can definitively blame a loss on one player but last night the horrid stretch of play by TJ Ford in the fourth quarter undoubtedly killed any shot that the Raptors might have had. Missing Chris Bosh is a lot to overcome against Dwight   …Continue Reading


A nervy win in Indiana

Toronto Raptors 102, Indiana Pacers 98 Sometimes a win can overshadow many things that went wrong in a game and such was the case last night. This was a little too close to being a L for one’s liking. The Pacers sans Jermain O’Neal and Jamal Tinsley frustrated the Raptors by putting up a fight   …Continue Reading

Toronto Raptors 105, Minnesota Timberwolves 82 About a decade ago when Tim Hardaway and the Miami Heat were one of the best road teams in the NBA, he was asked the question where they’d rather play Game 7 of a series. Hardaway responded that it would be better if it were on the road, that   …Continue Reading


Al Horford had no malicious intent, Anthony Johnson did

Atlanta Hawks 78, Toronto Raptors 89 If you’re going to be a big enough coward to hit a man on the head while he’s got his back towards you, the least you could do is not feign your innocence and openly acknowledge conflict. Instead Anthony Johnson pretended he had nothing to do with Jose Calderon   …Continue Reading


Raps shutdown Johnson, Johnson and Smith but night ends on a very bad note

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Toronto Raptors 100, Atlanta Hawks 88 I’d rather take a loss than see TJ Ford carried out on a stretcher, needless to say it brought to mind the Mark Madsen collision which ended up breaking Ford’s vertebrae. Coming off a stinger injury which made him miss about two weeks, this was the last type of   …Continue Reading


It’s gotten so bad that any offense we get out of Bosh is considered a bonus

Golden State Warriors 106, Toronto Raptors 100 So much for the 10AM PST start time and so much for the Warriors blowing big leads and so much for Baron Davis having a bad game and so much for the Raptors getting any shot they want against the much maligned Warriors defense. It all amounts to   …Continue Reading


Raptors do enough things right to beat Pacers, a team we’re supposed to beat

by

Kyrie Irving

Indiana Pacers 101, Toronto Raptors 110 Technically this wasn’t a must-win game but if we would’ve lost tonight, massive alarm bells would’ve gone off, after all you can’t allow the Pacers to snap their five game losing streak on your home floor. So the Raps dug deep, did enough good things on the floor to   …Continue Reading


A horrible game from our “stars” ends up in an ugly home loss punctuated by a defensive breakdown and Sam not calling a timeout to setup a final play

Utah Jazz 92, Toronto Raptors 88 Unfortunately for Bosh you can’t take 85% of the game off on the offensive end, show up in the last three minutes and expect to win the game. As for Bargnani, when you’re strictly a jump shooter it’s only natural that there are nights where your jumper isn’t working.   …Continue Reading
