Game Recap | Box Score | Photos | Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction | More From MacKenzie

It’s been five months since the Toronto Raptors lost a double-overtime affair to the Rockets in Houston. In those five months the Raptors traded their highest-paid player, gained a legitimate bench, started figuring things out and clinched the playoffs. Basically, that team that lost to the Rockets in November doesn’t exist anymore.

On Wednesday night at Air Canada Centre, Toronto showed Houston how much has happened since their last meeting, collecting a 107-103 victory despite ...

Season Series: Rockets 1-0

The Toronto Raptors were a completely different team the last time they saw the Houston Rockets. At the Toyota Center on November 11th, 2013, the Raptors came out on the losing end of a seemingly never-ending 110-104 double-overtime decision.

Rudy Gay led the team in scoring with 29 points, but needed to hoist 37 shots to get it. DeMar DeRozan shot just 6-for-25 in the game and Kyle Lowry was 6-for-16 from the floor on a night when the ...

Season Series: Heat 3-0

It’s been a while since the Toronto Raptors have been victorious in Miami. They would like to change that on Monday night, one day after collecting a win against the Orlando Magic.

While the Heat are chasing the Indiana Pacers for the best record in the Eastern Conference, they’ve had a rough stretch (for a 50-win team) going 7-8 over their last 15 games.

In a close 102-97 loss to Miami in January, DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points on 11-for-19 ...
