“It felt like I was in high school again,” DeMar DeRozan said. “I think we got a shot clock violation — I couldn’t even find the shot clock.”

Playing with an improvised scoreboard, horn, game clock and 24-second clock because of a malfunction in the Verizon Center’s scoring system, the Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 96-88 Tuesday night.

DeRozan and Rudy Gay scored 24 points apiece, and Kyle Lowry had 11 ...

Going for “#VictoryBaby” numero five in Washington.
A very happy second half of the NBA season!

Raptors Outlast Knicks At MSG To Extend Streak

DeMar DeRozan added 20 points for the Raptors, ...

When Raptors head coach Dwane Casey could finally put him back in, Gay didn’t disappoint. He drained the winning bucket with 4.8 seconds to play and Toronto won its third straight by defeating the short-handed Denver Nuggets 109-108 on Tuesday night.

“My hands were sweating, I couldn’t stop moving my legs. I was itching to get back in,” said ...
