Raptors Don’t Bring It Against Bobcats

 

Friday was nothing short of a letdown effort for the Raptors, who found themselves in another close game, but they failed to bring the same level of intensity — especially early — that kept them so competitive against some strong opponents in their previous four home games.

Our Tweet of the Night asks a question the Raptors now have days to figure out before closing out the first half of the regular season Wednesday against the Pistons. Based on Dwane Casey’s post-game reaction above, it’s probably no surprise that they get ...

Top Tweets From A Valentine’s Day Heartbreaker

 

 

Our #RTZ Tweet of the Night from @Iminfantasyland pretty much nailed it, huh?

Love was in the air on Valentine’s Day at Air Canada Centre on Tuesday — with a large (and loud) portion of that affection directed at Knicks point guard sensation Jeremy Lin.

We’ll leave it to other corners to remark on the latest chapter of an admittedly fantastic story in Lin. But there were other reasons to feel the love at ACC last night.

How about some for head coach Dwane Casey, who received his 2010-11 championship ring from his ...

Valanciunas Is “Young Men’s Player Of The Year”

The honours continue to pile up for Raptors 2011 first-round pick Jonas Valanciunas, who was named the 2011 FIBA Europe Young Men’s Player of the Year by FIBA Europe on Monday.

Valanciunas, 20,  came out on top in votes amongst an expert panel of voters to earn the award for the best European player aged 22 and under and finished second in a fan vote to earn the distinction.

It’s hard to disagree based on a calendar year that saw Valanciunas earn MVP honours and help propel Lithuania to gold at the ...

What Is It About Washington?

WAS_5_020612

There’s something about DC that seems to bring on the most bizzarre finishes for the Raptors and Wizards, with last night’s 111-108 OT result providing the last chapter.

From Linas Kleiza’s unbelievable bank shot to a putback dunk late from Amir Johnson, last night was just the tip of the iceberg for an arena that’s hosted at least one wacky meeting between these per season.

 

Jan. 15, 2011 – Raptors 95 Wizards 98: Who touched it last?

So we start with a tame one, but last season the Raptors did get a couple ...
