The (Long) Weekend In Raptors Photos

The Raptors may not be playing right now, but that doesn’t mean we’re not keeping tabs on them all over the world.

Straight from Lithuanian news site lrytas.lt, it appears that Raptors centre Jonas Valanciunas is engaged. Congrats to the big man!

Meanwhile, DeMar DeRozan was kicking it back home in California. Not surprisingly, this got posted to his instagram account after a late night workout at his alma mater of USC.

Raptors Defence Proves Porous In Home Loss To Warriors

gsw_300dd_012813

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.

Raptors Continue Recent Roll Against Cavs

CLE_4_031312

Our #RTZ Tweet of the Night winner @IamRemo got his wish with plenty to like from a Raptors perspective following Tuesday’s 96-88 win in Cleveland.

The victory wasn’t without its flaws — particularly in the early going — but what the Raptors lacked in consistency they more than made up for with effort, balance and a healthy dose of those “winning plays” we’ve heard heard coach Dwane Casey refer to so often this season.

When a bucket was needed late for the Raptors to avoid a potential collapse, there was Andrea Bargnani ...
