TORONTO (AP) Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey knows his starters can’t play the entire game.

After Sunday’s 112-98 loss to the Denver Nuggets, he probably wishes they could.

The Nuggets reserves outscored their Raptors counterparts 72-16 as Denver pulled away in the fourth quarter.

“Our bench has got to give us something,” Casey said after Toronto lost its third straight. “Our guys (starters) can’t play for 48 (minutes), so we’ve got to get production from our bench.

“The guys coming in have got […]

TORONTO (CP) — Poor defence early and bad free-throw shooting late cost the Toronto Raptors dearly Friday night.

Still they made a game of it against the surging Miami Heat, cutting a 20-point deficit to two before falling 90-83 to the NBA champions. It was the Heat’s ninth straight win.

“Missed opportunities,” lamented Toronto coach Dwane Casey whose team trailed 57-43 at the half.

Toronto went 2 for 10 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter. And there were other stumbles as the […]

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Heat

MIA_JV600

The Raptors aim to end their recent stretch of futility against the surging Heat in the final regular-season meeting between the two teams at ACC tonight (7 PM ET, TSN, FAN590, GET TICKETS).

Key Questions Heading into this one:

Can The Raptors Take Care Of Home? Because that hasn’t been the case so far. The Raptors are 1-1 on their current season-long four-game homestand and 3-4 overall this season at ACC.

Their latest defeat at home — a flat 102-100 effort against the Nets on Tuesday — still had head coach Dwane […]

Throwback Thursday: All Access

Image-51

Nostalgia triggers those ‘I’ll never forget’ moments and looking back on my time with the Raptors organization, some of the best ones were formed when fans were able to interact up close and personal with their idols. They realize that the monsters on the court are just like the rest of us with their drives to get where they are, constant cravings for Ma’s macaroni and cheese or their guilty pleasure of country music (Can you guess what current Raptor falls into the boots and hearts category?).

One of the ultimate […]

TORONTO (AP) —  John Wall wasn’t able to enjoy his best game of the season so far.

DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay each scored 17 points to help the Toronto Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 96-88 on Friday night, overcoming Wall’s season-high 37 points.

Wall connected on 15 of 21 field goal attempts, including both his 3-pointers, and went 5 of 7 from the free throw line. Still, it wasn’t enough for the Wizards, who fought back from a 16-point deficit to take […]
