NEW YORK (CP) — Road crowds and fourth-quarter deficits are suddenly no problem for the Toronto Raptors, who have turned from chokers to closers.

“Last year we were in a ton of situations, late-game situations we couldn’t pull out. We’d kind of fold under the pressure, get frustrated or let a big shot frustrate us,” guard DeMar DeRozan said. “Now, we don’t let none of that get to us.”

Jonas Valanciunas had 16 points and a career-high ...

Game Preview: Raptors @ Knicks

lowry_567NYK

Which Raptors Team Will We See?  It was a tough time to take a mini-break for the Raptors, who were playing some of their best basketball of the season before a brief holiday break. They’re 4-2 since newly-acquired players from the Kings joined the lineup and head coach Dwane Casey has said he sees the mental toughness growing with his group.

SAN ANTONIO (CP) — Unable to comfortably separate from the young Toronto Raptors, the San Antonio Spurs turned to a proven finishing formula – Tony Parker driving for layups when he wasn’t kicking the ball to open teammates on the perimeter.

Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night.

“We won that game because of Tony Parker’s aggressiveness,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “His juice; his aggression ...

OKLAHOMA CITY (CP) _ If the Toronto Raptors can play at home the way they’ve been playing on the road, they might just remain atop the Atlantic Division for a while.

Some thoughts after what was possibly the Raptors’ most impressive win of the season — a 109-108 OT road win over the Mavericks on Friday. Cue videobomb…

– DeMar DeRozan wasn’t exactly brilliant shooting the ball the whole night, with increased defensive attention at least part of the reason why.

“Sometimes you have to be the decoy,” said head coach Dwane Casey post-game. “Some days you’re the pigeon, some days you’re the statue.”

DeRozan shot just 6-of-18 from the ...
