Anderson’s Career Night Not Enough As Raptors Edged By Knicks

rapsknicks032313_1

TORONTO – Alan Anderson hit a career high but wasn’t in the mood for celebrating Friday.

The Raptors journeyman poured in 20 of his career-high 35 points in the third quarter Friday night, but Toronto dropped a 99-94 decision to the Knicks for their third straight loss.

“It feels really good personally but when you can’t get the win, you wish you did a little bit more,” Anderson said afterward.

The Raptors didn’t have long to lament the loss. Both teams then departed the Air Canada Centre for the airport to head ...

Raptors Wilt In Fourth Against Heat At ACC

rapsheat_3

TORONTO (CP) — Miami’s record-setting win steak continued where it started thanks to an inspiring speech from Heat veteran Shane Battier.

The 34-year-old forward delivered a rousing team speech the night Miami started its streak in Toronto with victory Feb 3., and delivered another one Sunday after the Heat defeated the Raptors 108-91 to win their 22nd consecutive game.

Of course, some credit should go to LeBron James, who poured in 22 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists to lead Miami’s offence, but it was Battier’s oratory skills that had the ...
