derozan_576NYK

Some keys tonight as the Raptors return to Air Canada Centre to complete a home-and-home with the Knicks (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050, GET TICKETS)

The ‘Road Warriors’ Return Home: We’ve learned that this new version of the Raptors travels pretty well with wins in five of their last six road games, including Friday’s 95-83 win over the Knicks at MSG.

But as head coach Dwane Casey has referenced frequently this season, the Raptors need to a better job “taking care of home”. They’re just 4-8 at Air Canada Centre ...

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.

That includes some surprising wins against Western Conference powers in the Thunder and Mavs last week, but how will the Raptors respond after a couple days off against Eastern Conference foes? ...

Game Preview: Raptors @ Bulls

jv_bull576

What to watch tonight as the Raptors conclude a back-to-back set on the road in Chicago against the shorthanded Bulls (8 PM ET, TSN, TSN 1050).

Better Living Through Ball Movement: Can the Raptors continue to get much better ball movement post-Rudy Gay trade? In their last three games, they’ve posted assist totals of 19, 23 and matched a season high with 24 last night against Philadelphia.

In a down year so far in the Atlantic Division, the Raptors (5-7) wrested away first place from the Sixers (5-8).

“It’s a great accomplishment to be in that position,” guard Kyle Lowry said. “But we ...

We’ll get a good look at the resiliency of the Raptors when the Portland Trail Blazers come to town on Sunday afternoon (1 PM ET, Sportsnet, Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

The Raptors have been all over the map this week. They pushed the Rockets to double overtime despite some serious offensive woes in Houston and then manhandled the Grizzlies in Memphis. But they’re coming off a listless 96-80 loss to the Bulls on Friday, which would have been much worse if not ...
