Big Third Quarter Powers Raptors Past Pistons

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (CP) — Rudy Gay and the Toronto Raptors are out of the playoff picture and have just 10 games left before their season ends. That doesn’t mean they’re going to go quietly.

Gay scored 19 of his 21 points during a dominant third quarter and the Raptors ended a five-game skid with a 99-82 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.

Toronto led 46-45 at the break and took control by outscoring the Pistons 23-5 in the first eight minutes of the third period.

Raptors Fall To Hawks For Fifth Straight Defeat

rapshawks3

TORONTO (CP) — The Toronto Raptors beat a hasty retreat from the post-game locker-room without saying much on Wednesday.

Jonas Valanciunas said what they didn’t need to.

Valanciunas scored a team-high 19 points but Toronto completely fell apart in the fourth quarter en route to an ugly 107-88 loss to Atlanta that clinched the Hawks’ sixth consecutive playoff appearance and had Air Canada Centre fans booing the home team off the court.

“They got away so quick in the fourth quarter. I don’t know what happened,” ...

Full Practice For Rudy Gay On Tuesday

A return to the lineup for Raptors forward Rudy Gay against the Hawks at ACC on Wednesday, isn’t assured, but seems a lot more probable after the forward was a full participant at Tuesday’s practice.

Gay, who has missed three of his last 11 games due to back soreness, will be evaluated on Wednesday and according to head coach Dwane Casey “hopefully he’s ready to go and can contribute.”

Watch more from Tuesday’s practice, with Amir Johnson and Terrence Ross on lessons learned as his rookie season winds down.

Gay May Still Play And More From Monday’s Practice

Rudy Gay’s season may not be over yet.

Head coach Dwane Casey acknowledged over the weekend that shutting down the high-scoring small forward could be discussed if Gay’s jammed back didn’t respond well to therapy. Consider the early response a positive one as Gay participated in Monday’s practice at ACC and any talk of ending his season was off the table.

“Rudy went through practice today, what he could, and the back is loosening up, so there’s going to be no talk of shutting him down and it’s just going to be ...
