Related: Game Recap | Box Score | Photo Gallery |  Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

Some thoughts after what was possibly the Raptors’ most impressive win of the season — a 109-108 OT road win over the Mavericks on Friday. Cue videobomb…

- DeMar DeRozan wasn’t exactly brilliant shooting the ball the whole night, with increased defensive attention at least part of the reason why.

“Sometimes you have to be the decoy,” said head coach Dwane Casey post-game. “Some days you’re the pigeon, some days you’re the statue.”

DeRozan shot just 6-of-18 from the ...

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Spurs

jv_timmy576

A Raptors team in flux moves heads into a tough matchup against a model of consistency in the San Antonio Spurs tonight (7 PM ET, Sportsnet ONE/Sportsnet Ontario, FAN590). What to watch heading into this one.

Can The Raptors Compete Shorthanded Again? Because it looks like they’ll have to without new additions Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson in the lineup against the Spurs, according to Masai Ujiri after his latest deal on Monday.

But there’s more. Tyler Hansbrough could remain out with a sprained left shoulder, while guard ...

Game Preview: Raptors at Suns

gay_576_suns

 

Key questions heading into the second game of a three-game trip for the Raptors against the Suns at US Airways Center (9 PM ET, TSN2, FAN590).

Can The Raptors Bounce Back? It’s the big question coming off what head coach Dwane Casey called the “debacle in Golden State” after Thursday’s practice in Phoenix. That’s an extremely economical way to describe the Raptors surrendering a 27-point lead in an eventual 112-103 loss to the Warriors in Oakland — the biggest comeback allowed in franchise history and the team’s fourth straight loss overall.

Raptors Aim To Regroup Out West

After an unsuccessful homestand, it’s going to be a gut-check kind of week for the Raptors on the West Coast.

The Raptors did themselves no favours by going 1-3 during their season-long run of four straight home games. Their latest defeat at the hands of the Denver Nuggets on Sunday dropped them to 6-10 on the campaign and signs of frustration are starting to show during the team’s current three-game losing streak.

Improbably, the Raptors still lead the Atlantic Division. But that’s going to be tested against a trio of Pacific Division teams ...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Toronto Raptors are under .500 and on top of the Atlantic Division.

More games like this one and they’ll get that winning record.

DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points and Rudy Gay had 18 to help Toronto beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-98 on Wednesday night.

In a down year so far in the Atlantic Division, the Raptors (5-7) wrested away first place from the Sixers (5-8).

“It’s a great accomplishment to be in that position,” guard Kyle Lowry said. “But we ...

TORONTO (AP) — A steady hand and cool demeanour helped Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers.

Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge scored 25 points each as Portland shot its way to a 118-110 overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Nicolas Batum added a season-high 24, and the Blazers overcame a late push by Toronto to pick up their sixth straight victory.

“We didn’t have a reason to be all riled up,” Lillard said. “They played well getting back into the game. ...
