From NBA.com: The Toronto Raptors haven’t played this well before the All-Star break since Chris Bosh’s final season north of the border, but in no way does that mean they’re satisfied.

They’ll look to head into the long weekend on a positive note by ending a five-game home losing streak to the struggling Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.

Toronto (27-25) leads the Atlantic Division by three games and is enjoying its best run before the break since going 29-23 in 2009-10. It is coming off a 108-101 ...

TORONTO (CP) — Patrick Patterson knows his role and, usually, it’s making an impact off the bench.

From NBA.com: After a tough five-game road trip, Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey said it’s only natural for his players to be looking forward to some time off over the All-Star break.

That doesn’t mean he’ll accept anything less than their best effort until then.

Atlantic Division-leading Toronto plays the first of two home games before the break Monday night while seeking a fifth straight victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Raptors (26-24) finished their trip 2-3 after falling 118-105 to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. ...
