Throwback Thursday: Raptors TV Timeouts

mighty mouse

This week called for a road trip and with the team out of the city, the game day routine changes ever so slightly.

Personally, my mighty “to do” list must be checked off before tip-off and a post-gym meal is coming out of the oven as the first bucket drops. Then the tweets begin arriving from the #RTZ Twitter chat about hustling home to make the game as we all settle into our comfy couchside season seats. Popcorn or peanuts?

Part of my shtick at home games is to provide some of […]

Game Preview: Raptors @ Rockets

The Raptors are back on the road for a pair of games against Western Conference contenders, beginning with Dwight Howard, James Harden and the Houston Rockets (8 PM ET, Sportsnet, Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

What to watch in the season series opener between these two teams tonight.

Right Time For Rockets? The Raptors come into this one riding a six-game slide in Houston, but they’re catching the Rockets scuffling a little bit with three losses in their last four after they opened the campaign with three straight wins.

Who’s Healthier In Houston? Both teams are […]

Raptors Hit All The Right Notes In Needed Win


Big win. Bigger confidence boost.

That’s the takeaway from a 115-91 Raptors blowout victory over the visiting Jazz on Saturday at ACC.

Head coach Dwane Casey called both teams desperate for a win pregame, which was telling. This season is only a couple of weeks old, but the Raptors have struggled with consistency over a stretch of four losses in five games and it’s tough to envision a scenario where a loss against the winless Jazz would have been viewed as defensible.

Instead, the Raptors delivered a no-doubter that saw them keep […]

They just didn’t know how much it would hurt.

Tyler Hansbrough scored a season-high 23 points, DeMar DeRozan added 18 and the Toronto Raptors snapped a seven-game home losing streak against Utah, routing the winless Jazz 115-91 Saturday night.

“This is not fun,” frustrated Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. “I don’t think we showed up with the intensity that we needed […]

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Jazz


Is it too early to call tonight’s game against the Utah Jazz at Air Canada Centre a “must win” for the Raptors?

The home side needs a foothold before a tough week ahead and the winless Jazz (0-6) obviously presents an opportunity tonight to end a three-game slide (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050).

But the Jazz will be starving for a first win and undoubtedly view this as a potential slump buster. History is also on their side, as they’ve won 14 of the last 15 meetings overall and will try for […]
