ross-51

February 27th in Raptors history was a good day.

Let’s talk franchise records for a moment because they’re always exciting and that magic number 51. That is the most points scored by a player in a single game. Terrence Ross hit that number just over a month ago in front of hometown fans and the leftovers are still lingering. But as we know, original honours go to a player who’s Raptors jersey is still spotted at every home game, Vince Carter. And he set it on this exact day in 2000 ...

TORONTO (CP) - It goes down as a comfortable win. But it was far from an impressive performance.

“We set basketball back 15 years in the first half,” Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey quipped after his team defeated the Orlando Magic 105-90 at the Air Canada Centre Sunday night.
