“I was hearing a lot from the fans,” said Bosh, who departed for Miami in a sign-and-trade deal in the 2010 off-season. “I thank ...

TORONTO (CP) — It took all of couple of minutes for Rudy Gay to breathe new hope into Toronto Raptors fans.

Two minutes after the team’s newest player checked in to the Raptors’ 98-73 rout of the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday, the explosive small forward took flight for a huge alley-oop dunk from DeMar DeRozan. Twenty seconds later, DeRozan found a sprinting Gay again.

Another big dunk, another roar of approval from the capacity crowd of 19,800 at Air Canada Centre.

ATLANTA (CP) — Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey has seen enough when it comes to costly missed calls late in the game.

Casey was livid Wednesday night after officials made no call on apparent contact to DeMar DeRozan under the basket in the final seconds of Toronto’s 93-92 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

“I’m tired of this,” Casey said. “I’m tired of losing games because of missed calls at the end of the game. I know the league’s going to come down on me for this, but I don’t care. ...

TORONTO (AP) — Aaron Gray’s big night wasn’t enough to rescue the flu-ravaged Toronto Raptors.

The centre had a career-high 22 points Monday, but the Golden State Warriors pulled away late for a 114-102 victory over Toronto.

“They’re a much improved team, we feel like we can compete with teams like that, but tonight we just couldn’t stop anybody,” said Gray, who also had 10 rebounds. “They scored way too many points, that’s not the identity we want to have.

“It’s hard to beat teams when they score 114.”
