Anderson’s Career Night Not Enough As Raptors Edged By Knicks

rapsknicks032313_1

TORONTO – Alan Anderson hit a career high but wasn’t in the mood for celebrating Friday.

The Raptors journeyman poured in 20 of his career-high 35 points in the third quarter Friday night, but Toronto dropped a 99-94 decision to the Knicks for their third straight loss.

“It feels really good personally but when you can’t get the win, you wish you did a little bit more,” Anderson said afterward.

The Raptors didn’t have long to lament the loss. Both teams then departed the Air Canada Centre for the airport to head […]

Short-handed and tired after travelling through the night following Friday’s crushing loss in Los Angeles, coach Dwane Casey told his team at halftime he wouldn’t accept any excuses.

The Raptors listened, with Amir Johnson leading the way with 17 points and a career-tying 16 rebounds, to rally from a 17-point deficit to top the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-96

“It was like day and night, and I expected it just because of the schedule,” Casey said of the Raptors’ horrible first […]

MEM_gay_drive300

TORONTO (CP) — Rudy Gay’s former team showed it still knows him better than his new team does.

Gay was held to just 13 points and three assists as the Toronto Raptors fell 88-82 to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.

“It was emotional, a little bit, it was good to see the guys,” said Gay, “but at the end of the day it was one of those things where we still thought we could win.”

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said he felt sorry for Gay, who entered the game averaging 21.1 […]

Raptors Outlast Knicks At MSG To Extend Streak

NEW YORK — No big shots from Rudy Gay on this night. He hardly made any shots at all.

Neither did Carmelo Anthony, bothered by what he called a dead arm after being hit in the biceps early in the game.

Toronto won the battle of supporting casts, and the game.

Reserve Alan Anderson scored 26 points in one of the few good offensive performances for either team, and the Raptors beat the New York Knicks 92-88 on Wednesday night for their fourth straight victory.

DeMar DeRozan added 20 points for the Raptors, […]

TORONTO (CP) —  The Raptors had their hands full with Kyrie Irving all game long, but it was the almost lackadaisical three he drained in the blink of an eye that completely ruined Toronto’s night.

Cleveland’s all-star point guard hit a three with 0.9 seconds left as part of a 32-point performance, and the Cavaliers edged […]
