Top Tweets From A Valentine’s Day Heartbreaker

 

 

Our #RTZ Tweet of the Night from @Iminfantasyland pretty much nailed it, huh?

Love was in the air on Valentine’s Day at Air Canada Centre on Tuesday — with a large (and loud) portion of that affection directed at Knicks point guard sensation Jeremy Lin.

We’ll leave it to other corners to remark on the latest chapter of an admittedly fantastic story in Lin. But there were other reasons to feel the love at ACC last night.

How about some for head coach Dwane Casey, who received his 2010-11 championship ring from his ...

Raptors Dropped By Hawks At ACC

ATL_15_013112

After the Raptors’ most consistent effort and lopsided result in their favour on Sunday, that momentum was promptly halted on Tuesday with a 100-77 loss to the Hawks at ACC. It looked like the Raptors were ready for a fight early, but their offence sputtered in the second quarter, Joe Johnson kept a hot start rolling into the break for Atlanta and the home side couldn’t recover.

“I thought we came out with a competitive spirit but I didn’t think that we sustained it long enough,” said head coach Dwane Casey ...

Raptors Win Second Straight, But Lose Bargnani…

Just an unbelievably bittersweet result from the Raptors on Wednesday night, as they leave it all on the floor in the second game of a back-to-back in Utah.

They’ll take the well-earned 111-106 double overtime road win to end their recent futility against the Jazz, but the greater concern has to be the well-being of Andrea Bargnani, who was forced to leave the first overtime period after aggravating his left calf strain.

According to @RaptorsPR, Bargnani will be re-examined tomorrow in Denver and we’ll bring you any updates as soon as we ...

Raptors Prepare For A Season Unlike Any Other

gray_ulmer510

Leandro Barbosa touches his head. Then he taps a spot on his chest directly above his heart.

“It’s going to take both,” he says.

Media Day brought the first public viewing of the 2011-2012 Raptors and it will be a regular season like no other.

The Raptors will play 66 games in an astonishing 113 days. What begins Boxing Day in Cleveland will end four months later at home against the New Jersey Nets.

“Man, it’s insane,” said centre Aaron Gray, a seven-footer who played last season with the New Orleans Hornets.

“We’re doing two-a-days ...
