Raptors End Losing Streak, Outshine Suns

PHOENIX (CP) — Sebastian Telfair had some extra incentive in his return to Phoenix for the first time since the Suns traded him to Toronto last month.

Telfair, who had played in only one game with the Raptors, scored 13 points to help Toronto cruise to a 98-71 win over Phoenix on Wednesday night.

“I love playing in Phoenix,” Telfair said. “I love the city, the fans. I learned a lot here and grew as a person. But I had to leave my kids. My kids are back here in school ...

Raptors Fade In Fourth And Fall To Warriors

gay_300_030513

OAKLAND, Calif. (CP) — Stephen Curry dribbled down court and saw Andrew Bogut sprinting to his left. He tossed a lob well above the rim, and Bogut leaped up high for a powerful two-handed dunk that had the rest of the Golden State Warriors running off the bench to offer high-fives and hugs in celebration.

The alley-oop in the second quarter of Golden State’s 125-118 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Monday night will either be a turning point or just another brief burst of brilliance in an injury-saddled season ...

Raptors Come Up Short In Overtime Against Bucks

rapsbucks300_2

MILWAUKEE (CP) — Monta Ellis did it — again.

Ellis scored six of his 23 points in overtime and Ersan Ilyasova and Brandon Jennings added five apiece in the extra period to spark the Milwaukee Bucks to a 122-114 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night.

Ellis was the star of the Bucks’ 110-107 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. He scored 27 points, but it was his last shot, a 3-pointer at the buzzer, that sealed the win.

Against Toronto, Ellis was 9 of 18 from the floor ...

Raptors Drop Third Straight With Loss To Pacers

rapspacers200_030113

The Toronto Raptors saw the kind of effort it takes to make the NBA’s playoffs on Friday _ the Indiana Pacers showed them how it’s done.

Paul George’s 22 points and 10 rebounds helped the Pacers pull away from the Raptors as Indiana downed Toronto 93-81.

The Pacers ratcheted up the tempo offensively in the second half and clamped down on the defensive end as they put the game almost out of reach with a quarter left to play.

“That’s the level we’ve got to get ready for,” said Raptors head coach ...

Raptors Can’t Hold Lead In Road Loss To Cavaliers

CLE_rudy300_022713

CLEVELAND (CP) — Kyrie Irving isn’t the only Cavaliers guard with killer instinct on the court.

When the game’s on the line, Dion Waiters wants the spotlight — and the ball.

“I live for that,” the rookie said.

Waiters scored 23 points, his last two coming on a crucial jumper with 1:43 left, Shaun Livingston added 15 and Cleveland overcame a horrendous start to win its second straight game without an injured Irving, 103-92 over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

The Cavs made only one of their first 15 shots, but recovered ...
