With the Toronto Raptors 20th season just around the corner and the anniversary buzz already in the air, we’ve had a few of our favourite Raptors alumni in the building this season.

With Muggsy in town, fans were posting some of their favourite photos of him on twitter all day long. This picture of Muggsy and Michael Jordan? Awesome.

Recap | Box Score | Photos | Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

The Toronto Raptors notched their 36th victory of the season on Wednesday night in a 101-87 win against the Detroit Pistons. It wasn’t a particularly pretty game. Neither team shot well. Each team turned the ball over 16 times.

Still, it was an important victory for Toronto because the team is in the home stretch of a playoff run with 19 games remaining. This is new territory for some of these players. They’re learning as they go with Raptors head coach Dwane Casey leading the way.

Box Score | Game Recap | Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

With 1:36 remaining on Monday night, DeMar DeRozan took a three and missed a three. 16 year-veteran Paul Pierce grabbed the rebound and promptly hit a three of his own. The game had been tied at 94 points apiece. Pierce’s three gave the Brooklyn Nets a three-point advantage. Brooklyn would go on to close out the 101-97 victory from there.

That three —and Pierce’s 10-point fourth quarter— is exactly why the Nets are a dangerous team. Regardless of the four-game ...

Season Series: Raptors 2-1

The Toronto Raptors are in Brooklyn to face the Nets while being nine games above .500 for the first time since the 2006-2007 season thanks to a road win in Minnesota on Sunday night.

Currently holding a four-game lead on the Nets, Toronto will look to take another step toward winning the Atlantic Division. They’ll do so without the services of Patrick Patterson, who was ruled out for the next 7-10 days because of a right ulnar collateral sprain.

In a January meeting against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Air Canada Centre, the Raptors pulled out a 94-89 victory. When the Timberwolves made a late push to get within two points with less than two minutes remaining, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry made tough baskets to clinch the win.
