Raptors Hammered By Hawks, 110-89

Toronto Raptors v Atlanta Hawks

It was one of those games that, pretty early on, just sucked the life right out of you.

RossvsMelo

The Raptors came into Sunday’s game against New York with a five-game winning streak. They managed to extend that streak without much of a fight. At this point in the season, the Knicks are just incredibly saddening to watch. Carmelo Anthony looks, dare I say it, tired and injured all the time and the rest of the team are just ... Read More »
