Season Series: Raptors 1-2

The Toronto Raptors have a day off between games, though it might not feel that way considering the way their last one ended. They probably would have preferred to get right back to work and forget about it.

The Raptors will get that opportunity Sunday at home against the Atlanta Hawks. Friday night at home against Oklahoma City, Toronto (38-30) let an eight-point lead slip away in the final minute of the second overtime and watched Kevin Durant drain a ...

Season Series: Raptors 1-0

The good thing about back-to-backs is they force you to forget about the last game and focus on the challenge ahead. Fresh off an overtime-loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, the Toronto Raptors are in New Orleans and hoping to dust off their shoulders to get back on track against the Pelicans.

The last time these teams met, Kyle Lowry had a 19-point, 12-assist double-double and DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points as the Raptors downed the Pelicans 108-101. Amir Johnson missed ...

The Toronto Raptors notched their 36th victory of the season on Wednesday night in a 101-87 win against the Detroit Pistons. It wasn’t a particularly pretty game. Neither team shot well. Each team turned the ball over 16 times.
