By Akasha Di Tomasso – Raptors.com

On Thursday, January 16th, the Toronto Raptors spent a few hours with some of their smallest but strongest fans.

The team paid their annual visit to SickKids Hospital in downtown Toronto, a long-standing team tradition. With many new faces on the team this season, it would be the first time that many of the Raptors had a chance to visit the hospital.

The day began with Susie Petro, Child Life Specialist at SickKids, describing the visit to the players. As Susie spoke, the motivation for the day […]

Preview | Game Notes | Camo Collection at Real Sports

The Toronto Raptors will try to atone for a subpar performance when they return home from a brief trip. A matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves might help (TSN, TSN 1050, Get Tickets).

The Raptors will attempt to add to their dominance over the Timberwolves with another high-scoring performance at Air Canada Centre as they seek a sixth consecutive home win Friday night.

Toronto (19-18) averaged 108.0 points and made 43.0 percent of its 3-pointers while sweeping a three-game homestand, but couldn’t carry its […]

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

TORONTO (CP)_ Even after his team had walked off the court with a comfortable victory, Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey made no apologies for his pre-game concerns his team would take this one for granted.

“We don’t have any right, yet, to overlook anyone,” Casey said after the Raptors defeated the lowly Milwaukee Bucks 116-94 at Air Canada Centre on Monday night. “This is a tough league and we’re still building, we’re still getting there, so I can’t allow our guys […]

Ouch. The night started well enough for Vale, a Toronto native who decided to travel to Chicago to see his favourite team on New Year’s Eve.

“I went with my girlfriend and we just wanted to go to an […]

Box Score | Photos | Video Playlists: DeMar’s Slam & More Highlights | Drake Night Highlights

TORONTO (CP) _ It was a game Dwane Casey figures the Toronto Raptors lose two months ago.

Reeling from an 18-3 run by the Brooklyn Nets to start the second half, Toronto was down 10 points against a team looking to win its season-high sixth straight game. But rather than rollover, the Raptors fought back, showed what their head coach called newfound “mental toughness” and coasted to a comfortable 96-80 victory before a sellout crowd of […]
