After Lengthy Layoff, Raptors Ready To End First Half

photo(13)

After a breakneck pace to start this condensed season, the Raptors were back at practice Tuesday for a third time in four straight non-game days.

The long layoff has made it increasingly difficult for head coach Dwane Casey to get his team ready for actual game conditions, but on the plus side, it has also afforded him an opportunity to work on some key areas of concern such as slow starts and late-game execution.

More from coach Casey on matching up with a healthy Pistons team beginning to fire on all […]

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 […]
