Fan Duel Toronto Raptors

The Best Timeline

At this point in the Raptors season, it would feel unreasonable to me to suggest that the team will find a way to be miraculously healthy come the start of the postseason. It just hasn’t worked out that way this year for the Raptors, and they’ve found ways to overcome that adversity and still win…

Raptors finish Western swing in Utah with win to top off 4-1 trip

In the hierarchy of acceptable losses in the NBA, headed into Utah on the second night of a back-to-back at the end of a 5-game west coast while missing two important rotation players, and then with another getting hurt barely a minute into the game, falls firmly into the category of what you can live…

Raptors win ninth straight in Cleveland

After being announced as an All-Star reserve earlier in the day on Thursday, for his sixth straight appearance in the game, Kyle Lowry delivered another fantastic performance to lead the Raptors to another victory in this stretch when they’ve pulled into second place in the Eastern Conference. In this game, the Raptors missed Marc Gasol,…

Raptors find their fun against Cleveland

Sometimes, the right opponent is all it takes for a team to remember who they are, and that was the case for the Raptors with the Cleveland Cavaliers in town on Monday night. With Cleveland fully in the midst of a rebuild, and a lot of their younger players still learning the ropes in the…

The Season of Fun

Last season’s Toronto Raptors will go down, until the franchise wins another title, as the unquestionable greatest Raptors team ever. The way it ended provided an incredible amount of joy to the fanbase and the city, and the playoffs included a lot of great moments as well. Despite that, if there was a tone to…

Raptors close road trip with tough loss in Dallas

When it was known that Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka were going to miss the remained of the Western Conference road trip, and then some, after the win over the New Orleans Pelicans, it looked rough for the Raptors. The rotation had only been 7 players mostly to that point and there were a lot…
