Game Day: Raptors vs Bucks


What you need to know about the Bucks.. This is not the same team that the Raptors swept 4-0 last season. Jason Kidd – believe it or not – has taken this team to another level, and has everyone playing with confidence, particularly on the defensive end of the floor. The Bucks are neck-in-neck with the Raptors at 7th best ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors host Jazz


In recent history the Toronto Raptors had this bizarre trend where they would lose games against the NBA’s minnows, and then come up with ridiculous wins against teams like OKC and SAS. That tide has shifted somewhat. The Raptors no longer lose the games they’re supposed to win. Stemming from last season and continuing over to this season, the Raptors ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors vs Bulls


The Toronto Raptors have made the most of their lax, home-friendly schedule but when the Chicago Bulls enter the Air Canada Centre tonight at 8 p.m., the entire continent of North America will tune-in on NBA media giant TNT to see if the Raptors are for real. Charles Barkley will check in at halftime to talk about his favourite city ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors vs Magic


The Orlando Magic are 2-29 on the road in their last 32 games, have lost eight straight to the Raptors, and will be playing without Victor Oladipo who is still out due to a facial fracture. This is the last ‘trap’ game before that much anticipated and nationally televised game vs the Bulls on Thursday. I say ‘trap’ loosely. Although ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors vs 76ers


In a very rare situation, the Raptors – as the top seed in the East – find themselves hosting the last place team in the conference. However transitory the whole thing might be, it’s a great feeling. Even before the season started, you could easily circle this game on the schedule as the easiest game on paper. The current results ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors @ Celtics


How good are the Celtics this year? That’s an interesting question. One that we can’t possibly answer until we’ve looped this amazing vine a dozen times. Pretty epic, and a fitting way to start dissecting the question above. Marcus Smart is part of the new identity the Boston Celtics possess. The rookie out of Oklahoma State is one of the ...

Game Day: Raptors vs Thunder

Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan tries to strip the ball from Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant

The reality is, the Raptors have two bogey teams in the Eastern Conference: The Miami Heat and the Charlotte Hornets. Most teams, no matter how good they are, have a bogey team. The loss in Miami was bad, sure; but does it make the Raptors a bad team? Of course not. In the grand scheme of things, I still expect ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors @ Heat


Lebron James’ 31 points and 6 rebounds per game won’t be missed by the Raptors. Those were numbers Lebron averaged in four games vs the Raps’ last season. Those are numbers we’ll worry about on November 22nd when the Raptors travel to the Quicken Loans arena. For now though, the only team missing Lebron’s stats are the Miami Heat. This ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors @ Magic


Heavy favorites There will be very few times where the Raptors will be such heavy favorites as they are tonight. Widely known as the best team in the Atlantic, coming off of a confidence-inducing win on opening night, and travelling to play one of the NBA’s basement dwellers after 2.5 days rest – anything less than a win would be ...
