What to watch tonight as the Raptors conclude a back-to-back set on the road in Chicago against the shorthanded Bulls (8 PM ET, TSN, TSN 1050).

Better Living Through Ball Movement: Can the Raptors continue to get much better ball movement post-Rudy Gay trade? In their last three games, they’ve posted assist totals of 19, 23 and matched a season high with 24 last night against Philadelphia.

Kyle Lowry, the subject of some pretty intense trade speculation of late, has led the way. He’s paced the Raptors in assists for 13 consecutive ...

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Spurs

jv_timmy576

A Raptors team in flux moves heads into a tough matchup against a model of consistency in the San Antonio Spurs tonight (7 PM ET, Sportsnet ONE/Sportsnet Ontario, FAN590). What to watch heading into this one.

Can The Raptors Compete Shorthanded Again? Because it looks like they’ll have to without new additions Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson in the lineup against the Spurs, according to Masai Ujiri after his latest deal on Monday.
