Raptors Come Out Flat In Loss To Wizards

rapswizards022513_300

TORONTO (CP) — With just 25 games left in the regular season, and the Toronto Raptors trying to claw their way into a playoff spot, there is no room for coasting.

Dwane Casey knows it, and he definitely let his players know it after the Raptors’ ugly 90-84 loss at home Monday to the Washington Wizards — the worst road team in the NBA.

“It was a stinker. They whupped us, they outworked us,” Casey said. “We tried to turn it on, turn it off. They got us. They kicked our ...

Raptors Prevail In Close Win Over Knicks

gay022213_1

TORONTO (CP) — His tenure in Toronto may be just 10 games old, but Rudy Gay is making Raptors fans forget all about the players he replaced.

The new swingman poured in 17 of his 32 points in the third quarter to lift Toronto to a 100-98 victory over the visiting New York Knicks on Friday, giving the Raptors their sixth win in seven outings.

Raptors Ready To Push Forward Largely Unchanged

What you see is what you get.

With just a minor tweak at back-up point guard, the Toronto Raptors are moving ahead with a pat hand.

Yesterday in the shadow of the NBA trade deadline the club added 27-year-old Sebastian Telfair from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for a conditional second-rounder and centre Hamed Haddadi.

Raptors Can’t Win Defensive Slugfest Against Grizzlies

MEM_gay_drive300

TORONTO (CP) — Rudy Gay’s former team showed it still knows him better than his new team does.

Gay was held to just 13 points and three assists as the Toronto Raptors fell 88-82 to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.

“It was emotional, a little bit, it was good to see the guys,” said Gay, “but at the end of the day it was one of those things where we still thought we could win.”

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said he felt sorry for Gay, who entered the game averaging 21.1 ...
