#RTZ Digital Rundown: Raptors vs. Bucks

resize

Anticipating a good night of basketball could take the Mondays out of a Monday, especially if the Raptors could continue their winning ways. And that’s what they did. A 22-point spread between them and the Bucks when the final buzzer sounded knocked the Raptors into third in the Eastern Conference. Now that’s the good kind of manic Monday.

Raptors Drop Bucks 116-94 At Home

Box Score | Photos | Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

TORONTO (CP)_ Even after his team had walked off the court with a comfortable victory, Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey made no apologies for his pre-game concerns his team would take this one for granted.

“We don’t have any right, yet, to overlook anyone,” Casey said after the Raptors defeated the lowly Milwaukee Bucks 116-94 at Air Canada Centre on Monday night. “This is a tough league and we’re still building, we’re still getting there, so I can’t allow our guys ...

Lowry Makes Special Delivery After Interception In Chicago

It wasn’t exactly a banner finish to 2013 for Alan Vale.

The name may not sound familiar, but his plight just might. Vale was the fan in the Raptors jersey below. He’s the one who doesn’t end up with Kyle Lowry’s shoes after the Raptors’ New Year’s Eve road win over the Bulls.

Ouch. The night started well enough for Vale, a Toronto native who decided to travel to Chicago to see his favourite team on New Year’s Eve.

“I went with my girlfriend and we just wanted to go to an ...

Raptors Pull Away From Nets On Drake Night

Box Score | Photos | Video Playlists: DeMar’s Slam & More Highlights | Drake Night Highlights

TORONTO (CP) _ It was a game Dwane Casey figures the Toronto Raptors lose two months ago.

Reeling from an 18-3 run by the Brooklyn Nets to start the second half, Toronto was down 10 points against a team looking to win its season-high sixth straight game. But rather than rollover, the Raptors fought back, showed what their head coach called newfound “mental toughness” and coasted to a comfortable 96-80 victory before a sellout crowd of ...

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Nets

Tonight presents a pretty important divisional game for a relatively unchallenged front-running Raptors team when the host the Brooklyn Nets (7 PM, TSN2, Sportsnet 590 The FAN)

Since players from the Raptors locker were pulled from the lineup before the December 8th game in Los Angeles, the remaining group has banded together and integrated pieces fairly seemlessly from Sacramento. Beating the Lakers that night in Kobe Bryant’s return was considered an upset, as was beating the Bulls in Chicago (twice). Same with Dallas, definitely in OKC and indubitably versus ...
