TORONTO (CP) — One seriously sloppy half was too much for the Minnesota Timberwolves to overcome.

Raptors Give As Good As They Get, Lose Feisty Opener 90-88

Someone must have known.

Before last night’s Raptor game, a gospel choir warmed up the Air Canada Centre crowd. As the players were introduced the men and women sang…

“We are not afraid.

“We are not afraid.”

Turns out no one was.

Do not adjust your set, Raptor fans. What you are seeing seems to be real and if the result is heartbreaking – the Raptors once led by 11,  the singers had a point.

The Raptors were the hammer and not the nail ...

Full House At Practice As Season Opener Looms

It was all hands on deck for the Raptors at practice on Monday in a workout session head coach Dwane Casey described as the team’s last hard practice for a while.

Yet all three were full participants on Monday ...

Team Up Foundation Wins Big At Casino Rama

Sunday proved to be a great day for the Raptors to brave the elements and make their way north to Casino Rama, where an intrasquad scrimmage was held as a final tune-up before the team’s season opener against the Indiana Pacers on October 31st at ACC.

Team White, comprised mainly of Raptors reserves, eked out a 78-75 victory over Team Black in a chippy, intense affair that saw a few players hit the deck and leave with injury. Expect updates on DeMar DeRozan, Jose Calderon and John Lucas III to come ...

Fields & The Couch That Keeps On Giving

 

It was a moving scene at the Raptors’ practice on Tuesday, where Landry Fields finally received a coveted NBA Social Media Award.

Fields was named the winner of the The Snap Shot Award back in late-July for his now legendary twitpic of the couch that then teammate Jeremy Lin temporarily slept on during their time with Knicks.

With NBA TV in Toronto to shoot an episode of Real Training Camp with the Raptors on Tuesday, Fields was able to finally get his hands on a trophy he described as “surprisingly heavy” before ...
