BOSTON (CP) — Jared Sullinger was piling up the rebounds and needed an assist from sidelined guard Rajon Rondo to realize what was happening.

Sullinger scored 25 points and grabbed a career-best 20 rebounds, Avery Bradley had 20 points and the Boston Celtics held on to snap a nine-game losing streak with an 88-83 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

“I didn’t even think about it until Rondo said, ‘Look up at the scoreboard and get one more,”’ Sullinger said of […]

Lowry Makes Special Delivery After Interception In Chicago

It wasn’t exactly a banner finish to 2013 for Alan Vale.

The name may not sound familiar, but his plight just might. Vale was the fan in the Raptors jersey below. He’s the one who doesn’t end up with Kyle Lowry’s shoes after the Raptors’ New Year’s Eve road win over the Bulls.

Ouch. The night started well enough for Vale, a Toronto native who decided to travel to Chicago to see his favourite team on New Year’s Eve.

“I went with my girlfriend and we just wanted to go to an […]

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Nets

Tonight presents a pretty important divisional game for a relatively unchallenged front-running Raptors team when the host the Brooklyn Nets (7 PM, TSN2, Sportsnet 590 The FAN)

Since players from the Raptors locker were pulled from the lineup before the December 8th game in Los Angeles, the remaining group has banded together and integrated pieces fairly seemlessly from Sacramento. Beating the Lakers that night in Kobe Bryant’s return was considered an upset, as was beating the Bulls in Chicago (twice). Same with Dallas, definitely in OKC and indubitably versus […]

Throwback Thursday: Happy Birthday Muggsy

mugs5

Former Raptor fan favourite, Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues, continues to be an inspiration with a heart that is probably bigger than he is. At 5’3″, he proved anything is possible including fourteen seasons in the NBA, closing his career here in Toronto. He helped the Raptors reach the playoffs for the first time in franchise history and he continues to make appearances at games and community events to the likes of loyal fans.

Happy 49th birthday, Muggsy!

The red hot Raptors aim to extend their recent run when the open a three-game trip in Washington against the Wizards tonight at Verizon Center (7 PM ET, TSN, Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

With a 9-3 record since the trade that sent Rudy Gay to Sacramento as the centrepiece of a multi-player deal, the Raptors have had a remarkable turnaround that’s propelled them back atop the Atlantic Division and helped earn head coach Dwane Casey Eastern Conference Coach of the Month honours for December.

DeRozan Hits No. 5 On Raptors All-Time Scoring List

demar-score-600

The Raptors remarkable post-trade run continued into a new calendar year on Wednesday with possibly their best win of the season — a 95-82 win against the league-leading Pacers.

DeMar DeRozan struggled early but picked up his shooting in the fourth quarter on his way to a game-high 26 points in the win and the performance also re-wrote the Raptors’ record book.

DeRozan’s third 20+ point scoring effort in his last fourth games vaulted him past Jose Calderon for number five on the Raptors all-time scoring list, which seems astounding for […]
