TORONTO (CP) — Terrence Ross seemed a bit taken aback by all the fuss.

Although he’d just matched a Toronto Raptors record with 51 points, Ross wasn’t sure why someone threw him a game ball. With the media crowding around his locker, he noted that New York’s Carmelo Anthony poured in 62 on Friday night and Oklahoma’s Kevin Durant had 54 earlier this month.

It was left to teammate Greivis Vasquez to offer some perspective, noting that while those veterans may have scored ...

NBA.com Preview | Game Notes

Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers are tied for the most wins in 2014, but the Toronto Raptors aren’t far behind thanks to a strong stretch at home.

The Clippers are well aware of what the Raptors are capable of at Air Canada Centre.

Griffin looks to continue his impressive production, and help the Clippers snap a four-game road losing streak to the Raptors in a matchup of division leaders Saturday night (7 PM ET, TSN, Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

The Toronto Raptors (21-20) needed a huge performance from DeMar DeRozan to rescue them from a huge deficit in their last game.

DeRozan might be poised for another career night against the Philadelphia 76ers (14-28) given what he’s done so far in the season series.

He’ll try to help Toronto win a third straight meeting with the 76ers on Friday night when the Raptors visit Philadelphia (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050).

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Mavericks

Preview | Game Notes

The Dallas Mavericks have one of the best assist-to-turnover ratios in the NBA thanks in large part to the steady play of Jose Calderon.

Calderon was greeted warmly in his first return to Toronto, but the receptions have been different for Vince Carter when he’s gone back north.

Carter has also been efficient with the basketball and Wednesday night’s contest figures to be one of his final games in Toronto as the Mavericks continue a three-game trip.

After having their home winning streak stopped, the first-place Toronto Raptors are hoping to put an end to their road struggles with a rare win in Charlotte (2 PM ET, Sportsnet, TSN 1050).

With Kemba Walker out for the slumping Bobcats, the Raptors will try to avoid falling back to .500 by snapping a six-game losing streak in Charlotte on Monday.

The Raptors (20-19) have built a lead atop the weak Atlantic Division thanks to their strong play at home, but they had a six-game winning streak there halted ...

Box Score | Photo Gallery | Post-Game Reaction & Highlights

TORONTO (CP) – Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors made up for a sub-par road performance by continuing their mastery of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Lowry had 24 points to lead Toronto to a 94-89 victory before an Air Canada Centre sellout crowd of 19,800, the Raptors’ 10th straight home win over Minnesota and 17th in 18 head-to-head meetings. More importantly, it came just two nights after a disappointing 88-83 road loss to the Boston Celtics.

“It was a bounce-back game for us and we needed it,” Lowry ...

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Nets

Tonight presents a pretty important divisional game for a relatively unchallenged front-running Raptors team when the host the Brooklyn Nets (7 PM, TSN2, Sportsnet 590 The FAN)

Since players from the Raptors locker were pulled from the lineup before the December 8th game in Los Angeles, the remaining group has banded together and integrated pieces fairly seemlessly from Sacramento. Beating the Lakers that night in Kobe Bryant’s return was considered an upset, as was beating the Bulls in Chicago (twice). Same with Dallas, definitely in OKC and indubitably versus ...
