Without DeRozan, Raps Need More T-Ross

TerrenceRossVsIrving

When DeMar DeRozan went down with a groin injury against the Dallas Mavericks a couple weeks back, Toronto Raptors fans groaned. The All-Star, despite having played a mediocre season at best to that point, was still a huge part of the Raptors’ success. I was one of those who thought that, even without DeRozan, the Raptors would be able to ... Read More »

Raptors sink Pacers, 106-94

JVvsHibs

The Toronto Raptors started off slow against the Indiana Pacers in Friday’s matchup. Thankfully for them, so did Indy. The offense for both sides was rather hard to watch early, with multiple air balls splashing down out of bounds and not many plays being run. Both Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross had a rough go scoring-wise, though each of them ... Read More »

The Raptors played three games this week, defeating both Phoenix and Atlanta before falling to Dallas in a hard fought game.

Vince Carter and the Dangerous Grip of Nostalgia

VCcry

On Wednesday night, during a commercial timeout, the Toronto Raptors celebrated Vince Carter as part of their 20th Anniversary theme for this season. All things considered, the moment went very well. The fans gave Carter a classy applause, the video was entertaining and Vinsanity himself sprung leaks in both eyes. Then the game began and on the first possession in ... Read More »

Raptor of the Week: Nov.9-15

LowryVsPhilly

The Toronto Raptors played four games this week, winning three of them. They defeated Philadelphia, Orlando and Utah, but lost a big game to Chicago. The Raps are now sitting at an 8-2 record. They are still atop the Eastern Conference, though they lack that signature win that fans want to see. The closest they’ve had was the blowout win ... Read More »

Could Williams Win Sixth Man Award?

New York Knicks v Toronto Raptors

Back in the 2011-12 season, Lou Williams received the second most votes for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award. He was beaten out only by James Harden (remember those days, Thunder fans?), who has become an All-Star player as a starter in Houston. This was before Williams’ ACL tear in 2013 and what most would consider the high ... Read More »
