Game Preview: Raptors vs. Nets

Tonight presents a pretty important divisional game for a relatively unchallenged front-running Raptors team when the host the Brooklyn Nets (7 PM, TSN2, Sportsnet 590 The FAN)

Since players from the Raptors locker were pulled from the lineup before the December 8th game in Los Angeles, the remaining group has banded together and integrated pieces fairly seemlessly from Sacramento. Beating the Lakers that night in Kobe Bryant’s return was considered an upset, as was beating the Bulls in Chicago (twice). Same with Dallas, definitely in OKC and indubitably versus ...

Game Preview: Raptors @ Knicks

lowry_567NYK

Which Raptors Team Will We See?  It was a tough time to take a mini-break for the Raptors, who were playing some of their best basketball of the season before a brief holiday break. They’re 4-2 since newly-acquired players from the Kings joined the lineup and head coach Dwane Casey has said he sees the mental toughness growing with his group.

That includes some surprising wins against Western Conference powers in the Thunder and Mavs last week, but how will the Raptors respond after a couple days off against Eastern Conference foes? ...

Raptors Hit All The Right Notes In Needed Win

team_camo600

Big win. Bigger confidence boost.

That’s the takeaway from a 115-91 Raptors blowout victory over the visiting Jazz on Saturday at ACC.

Head coach Dwane Casey called both teams desperate for a win pregame, which was telling. This season is only a couple of weeks old, but the Raptors have struggled with consistency over a stretch of four losses in five games and it’s tough to envision a scenario where a loss against the winless Jazz would have been viewed as defensible.

Instead, the Raptors delivered a no-doubter that saw them keep ...
