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 »

TSA112813-Raptors10.jpg

Say what you want about Dwane Casey, but the man has improved greatly over the course of his coaching career. Joshua and I talked about this on last night’s podcast – his biggest attribute is his relationship with the players, who see him as a father-figure. Dwane Casey has the players’ respect, and brings the best out of them. With ... Read More »

RapsVsSuns

The Toronto Raptors were on a four-game winning streak heading into tonight’s game against the Phoenix Suns. They’ve looked great over the winning streak and haven’t had too many grind it out until the end games. Until tonight, that is. The Raptors started off at a decent pace, feeding Jonas Valanciunas the ball in the post and getting him touch ... Read More »

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 »

Twenty years ago the Raptors and Grizzlies began their NBA journey, and now – two decades later – both teams sit at the top of their respective conferences posing their best starts in franchise history. Twice this season the Raptors have come up against two teams that are better (In Miami’s case it’s arguable) than them on paper in Miami ... Read More »
