NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Warriors Game Notes

From NBA.com: Stephen Curry seems to play at his best immediately after showcasing his worst.

The All-Star guard now has a good chance to maintain his hot hand against a team he’s enjoyed great success against in his young career when the Golden State Warriors continue their six-game road trip against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Curry had one of his worst games of the season in a 103-83 loss at Chicago on Wednesday, finishing with a season low-tying five points on 2-of-10 shooting to go with five ...

#RTZ Digital Rundown: Raptors vs. Wizards

The longest game in franchise history still wasn’t enough time for the Raptors to scoop up their 33rd win of the season. Too many fouls and not enough healthy ankles set the Raptors back 134-129 when the final buzzer sounded in the third overtime. And the fans were in it until the end. #RTZ

From NBA.com: Coach Dwane Casey has the Toronto Raptors in solid position to make the playoffs for the first time in six seasons, but he realizes it’s only going to get tougher down the stretch.

The Washington Wizards are looking to end a similar postseason drought, though they’ll have to play the next six weeks without one of their top frontcourt contributors.

Toronto hasn’t had much trouble with Washington even when Nene has been in the lineup, and it will look to sweep the four-game ...

NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Cavaliers Game Notes

From NBA.com: Backed by their strong play on the defensive end, the Toronto Raptors are on the verge of moving seven games over .500 for the first time in six years.

They could reach that mark against the Cleveland Cavaliers, whose offensive struggles began with Toronto ending their longest winning streak in nearly four years.

The Raptors go for their sixth win in seven games as they try to beat the short-handed Cavaliers for the second time in less than a week Tuesday night in Cleveland.

#MusicMonday: Kyle’s Hip Hop Heroes

When taking a look at genres of music, it’s evident that hip-hop plays a big role in the basketball culture. Whether amping up a players pregame ritual or keeping them company between #wheelsup and #wheelsdown tweets, the four-part pot of elements, consisting of deejaying, emceeing, breakdancing and graffiti, is commonly the choice among NBA-ers when ‘play’ is pressed.

Kyle Lowry hems and haws about some of his hip hop heroes:

Game Day: Raptors vs. Magic

NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Magic Game Notes

From NBA.com: Another strong defensive effort helped the Toronto Raptors bounce back from a rare defeat on their home floor.

It wouldn’t seem they should have trouble getting another home win Sunday night against the Orlando Magic, who could be without leading scorer Arron Afflalo and haven’t won a road game in more than two months.

While Atlantic Division-leading Toronto (30-25) has won 11 of 14 at home, the Southeast-worst Magic have lost 14 straight on the road since winning in Chicago on Dec. 16.

A 94-92 loss ...
