Raptors Fall To Hawks For Fifth Straight Defeat

rapshawks3

TORONTO (CP) — The Toronto Raptors beat a hasty retreat from the post-game locker-room without saying much on Wednesday.

Jonas Valanciunas said what they didn’t need to.

“That was bad,” the rookie Raptor said.

Valanciunas scored a team-high 19 points but Toronto completely fell apart in the fourth quarter en route to an ugly 107-88 loss to Atlanta that clinched the Hawks’ sixth consecutive playoff appearance and had Air Canada Centre fans booing the home team off the court.

“They got away so quick in the fourth quarter. I don’t know what happened,” ...

Gay, who has missed three of his last 11 games due to back soreness, will be evaluated on Wednesday and according to head coach Dwane Casey “hopefully he’s ready to go and can contribute.”

Watch more from Tuesday’s practice, with Amir Johnson and Terrence Ross on lessons learned as his rookie season winds down.

Gay May Still Play And More From Monday’s Practice

Rudy Gay’s season may not be over yet.

Head coach Dwane Casey acknowledged over the weekend that shutting down the high-scoring small forward could be discussed if Gay’s jammed back didn’t respond well to therapy. Consider the early response a positive one as Gay participated in Monday’s practice at ACC and any talk of ending his season was off the table.

“Rudy went through practice today, what he could, and the back is loosening up, so there’s going to be no talk of shutting him down and it’s just going to be ...
