Just an unbelievably bittersweet result from the Raptors on Wednesday night, as they leave it all on the floor in the second game of a back-to-back in Utah.

They’ll take the well-earned 111-106 double overtime road win to end their recent futility against the Jazz, but the greater concern has to be the well-being of Andrea Bargnani, who was forced to leave the first overtime period after aggravating his left calf strain.

According to @RaptorsPR, Bargnani will be re-examined tomorrow in Denver and we’ll bring you any updates as soon as we ...

Reeling Raptors Return To Practice At ACC

Kleiza Returns & Your Reaction

kleiza_576_011112

Wednesday saw the return of Raptors forward Linas Kleiza to the lineup after nearly a year away from game action following microfracture knee surgery and the versatile forward provided a big boost off the bench with 10 points and three rebounds in 15 minutes.

“I feel good, it’s fun to be back,” said Kleiza post-game. “Of course the game didn’t end the way anybody wanted but for me personally, after a year off, it feels good to be back.

“I’ve got a lot of people to thank and this is just the ...
