The Raptors can only hope that February picks up where January left off against the Blazers (33-13) tonight in Portland (10 PM ET, TSN, Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

A road victory in Denver over the Nuggets on Friday matched a franchise record with 11 wins in January. Here are a few reasons why the Raptors (25-21) can confidently aim for a fourth straight win tonight.

“We will take the ‘W,’ but it was not a quality finish,” Casey said. “I let the players know I was disappointed in the close. You can’t come in and ...

It was left to teammate Greivis Vasquez to offer some perspective, noting that while those veterans may have scored ...
