Season Series: Raptors 1-2

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 […]

The good thing about back-to-backs is they force you to forget about the last game and focus on the challenge ahead. Fresh off an overtime-loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, the Toronto Raptors are in New Orleans and hoping to dust off their shoulders to get back on track against the Pelicans.

The Toronto Raptors are in Brooklyn to face the Nets while being nine games above .500 for the first time since the 2006-2007 season thanks to a road win in Minnesota on Sunday night.

When the Toronto Raptors sent Rudy Gay to Sacramento, they opened up an opportunity for Terrence Ross. While the main conversation after the trade was why Gay hadn’t been successful in Toronto, Ross was quietly inserted into the starting lineup. He soon began piecing together performances to show why the front office believed enough in their second-year guy to hand him an opportunity.
