Preview | Game Notes | Camo Collection at Real Sports

The Toronto Raptors will try to atone for a subpar performance when they return home from a brief trip. A matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves might help (TSN, TSN 1050, Get Tickets).

The Raptors will attempt to add to their dominance over the Timberwolves with another high-scoring performance at Air Canada Centre as they seek a sixth consecutive home win Friday night.

Toronto (19-18) averaged 108.0 points and made 43.0 percent of its 3-pointers while sweeping a three-game homestand, but couldn’t carry its ...

Throwback Thursday: And The Award Goes To…

Image-53

As we hurdle over the halfway mark of January 2014, the deja vu feeling of a similar month in Raptors history is already poking around.

January 2007: The Toronto Raptors were the talk of the league as the underdogs continued to shake off a sloppy start to the season. They finished the month at .500, stood atop the Atlantic Division and had a chance of making the playoffs for the first time since the ’01/’02 season. Sound familiar?

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.

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 ...
