Box Score | Photo Gallery | Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction | #RTZ Digital Rundown: Raptors @ Cavs

CLEVELAND (CP) – With his team in trouble, DeMar DeRozan flashed his All-Star form at the finish.

DeRozan scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, and the Toronto Raptors won for the sixth time in seven games with a 99-93 victory over the injury-riddled Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

“DeMar was huge down the stretch,” Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. “He made shots, he made plays, he made some free throws.”

DeRozan also made ...

NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Cavaliers Game Notes

From NBA.com: Backed by their strong play on the defensive end, the Toronto Raptors are on the verge of moving seven games over .500 for the first time in six years.

They could reach that mark against the Cleveland Cavaliers, whose offensive struggles began with Toronto ending their longest winning streak in nearly four years.

The Raptors go for their sixth win in seven games as they try to beat the short-handed Cavaliers for the second time in less than a week Tuesday night in Cleveland.

Atlantic Division-leading ...

#MusicMonday: Kyle’s Hip Hop Heroes

When taking a look at genres of music, it’s evident that hip-hop plays a big role in the basketball culture. Whether amping up a players pregame ritual or keeping them company between #wheelsup and #wheelsdown tweets, the four-part pot of elements, consisting of deejaying, emceeing, breakdancing and graffiti, is commonly the choice among NBA-ers when ‘play’ is pressed.

Kyle Lowry hems and haws about some of his hip hop heroes:

Big Second Half Powers Raptors Past Magic

Box Score | Photos | Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

TORONTO (CP) - It goes down as a comfortable win. But it was far from an impressive performance.

“We set basketball back 15 years in the first half,” Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey quipped after his team defeated the Orlando Magic 105-90 at the Air Canada Centre Sunday night.

“But like I told our guys, we’re going to have a lot of games where we’re going to have to grind it out,” Casey said. “For whatever reason, we struggle in the first half and then come ...

Game Day: Raptors vs. Magic

NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Magic Game Notes

From NBA.com: Another strong defensive effort helped the Toronto Raptors bounce back from a rare defeat on their home floor.

It wouldn’t seem they should have trouble getting another home win Sunday night against the Orlando Magic, who could be without leading scorer Arron Afflalo and haven’t won a road game in more than two months.

While Atlantic Division-leading Toronto (30-25) has won 11 of 14 at home, the Southeast-worst Magic have lost 14 straight on the road since winning in Chicago on Dec. 16.

A 94-92 loss ...
