Raptors Can’t Hold Lead In Road Loss To Cavaliers

CLE_rudy300_022713

CLEVELAND (CP) — Kyrie Irving isn’t the only Cavaliers guard with killer instinct on the court.

When the game’s on the line, Dion Waiters wants the spotlight — and the ball.

“I live for that,” the rookie said.

Waiters scored 23 points, his last two coming on a crucial jumper with 1:43 left, Shaun Livingston added 15 and Cleveland overcame a horrendous start to win its second straight game without an injured Irving, 103-92 over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

The Cavs made only one of their first 15 shots, but recovered ...

Mickael Pietrus: Dancing Machine

The Raptors really struggled to find their rhythm in Cleveland last night, but Mickael Pietrus certainly seemed to have all the right moves pre-game with Paul Jones and Sherman Hamilton of NBA TV Canada.

Raptors Ready To Push Forward Largely Unchanged

What you see is what you get.

With just a minor tweak at back-up point guard, the Toronto Raptors are moving ahead with a pat hand.

Yesterday in the shadow of the NBA trade deadline the club added 27-year-old Sebastian Telfair from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for a conditional second-rounder and centre Hamed Haddadi.

Haddadi is a holdover from the deal that brought Rudy Gay to Toronto from Memphis.

Raptors Can’t Win Defensive Slugfest Against Grizzlies

MEM_gay_drive300

TORONTO (CP) — Rudy Gay’s former team showed it still knows him better than his new team does.

Gay was held to just 13 points and three assists as the Toronto Raptors fell 88-82 to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
