The Raptors will get that opportunity Sunday at home against the Atlanta Hawks. Friday night at home against Oklahoma City, Toronto (38-30) let an eight-point lead slip away in the final minute of the second overtime and watched Kevin Durant drain a ...

Recap | Box Score | Photos | Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

As the Toronto Raptors push toward the postseason, they need to learn from their losses and not make the same mistakes twice. On Friday night in a convincing 99-86 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto seemed to be playing to avenge a loss to the Brooklyn Nets earlier in the week.

While the Raptors allowed Brooklyn to overwhelm them with their experience and be the aggressors from the jump, against the Grizzlies, save for a slow start, they were ready.

Recap | Box Score | Photos | Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

The Toronto Raptors notched their 36th victory of the season on Wednesday night in a 101-87 win against the Detroit Pistons. It wasn’t a particularly pretty game. Neither team shot well. Each team turned the ball over 16 times.
