Toronto Raptor

  1. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…

  2. Raptors’ Landry Fields out after elbow surgery; Alan Anderson out with foot injury

    Nov 15, 2012, 2:14 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors Landry Fields goes to the basket against Indiana Pacers Roy Hibbert during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    The Raptors are having some depth issues out on the perimeter. Actually, some is an understatement. More like buried under an avalanche. First Kyle Lowry is out a couple weeks with a bone bruise in his foot. Now we learn Wednesday was the day Landry Fields had elbow surgery and he is out indefinitely, as…

  3. Raptors Kyle Lowry out 1-2 weeks with bone bruise in foot

    Nov 15, 2012, 1:26 PM EST

    Kyle Lowry

    Kyle Lowry, who has been out since last weekend after spraining his ankle, is going to be missing from the Raptors lineup a while longer. He has a bruised cuboid bone in his right foot and will be out 1-2 weeks, the team announced. There’s not a whole lot of treatment for a bone bruise…

  4. Raptors set record for futility in win over Pacers

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:29 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Indiana Pacers

    Just a hideous display of basketball in Indiana on Tuesday, but somebody had to win, and it was the Toronto Raptors. After suffering a tough loss in triple-overtime just the night before, the Raptors will take the win any way they could get it. But the team set a record for futility in the process.…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Even when sloppy Knicks get win

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:58 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thanking Buddha this guy is not on your team…. Spurs 84, Lakers 82: The Bernie Bickerstaff era in Los Angeles came to an end with a missed Pau Gasol three and a loss. Bickerstaff had a .667 winning percentage as…

  6. Three Stars: Career highs for three guys

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:52 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    The soulless pursuit of stats by players on bad teams (or as I like to call it, the Corey Maggette special) can often be pretty brutal to watch. No one likes watching a guy play isolation basketball the whole game, hogging possessions and looking off teammates. Three Stars doesn’t reward that type of behavior, but…

  7. Video: Al Jefferson, John Lucas threes in Jazz/Rockets thriller

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:23 AM EST

    Raptors' Bargnani goes to the basket against Jazz's Favors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If you didn’t get to watch the Jazz and Raptors triple overtime thriller Monday… well, sorry. You can read our recap of the game. But it’s not quite the same. Here’s some video from the Air Canada Centre — Utah’s Al Jefferson hitting only the second three of his career to send the game to…

  8. Game of the Night: Utah outlasts Toronto in triple-overtime thriller

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:28 AM EST

    Jazz's Jefferson celebrates with team mate Foye after Jefferson scored a three point shot to tie the game at the buzzer against the Raptors at the end of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Ask a Schoolhouse Rock aficionado or a Utah Jazz fan tonight, and they’ll let you in on a little secret: 3 really is the magic number. The Utah Jazz traveled to Toronto to take on the Raptors, and the triple-overtime battle that ensued was not only the game of the night, but probably the game of the…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  10. Kyle Lowry out Saturday for Toronto Raptors

    Nov 10, 2012, 12:31 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry drives between Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

    This one is going to hurt. And when you’re 1-4, you don’t need more things that hurt. Kyle Lowry — the Raptors leading scorer, assist man and best player this season, is out Saturday against the 76ers with a sprained right ankle, the team announced. He turned the ankle in the Raptors loss to Oklahoma…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  12. Raptors’ Lowry officially out for Wednesday, day-to-day after

    Nov 7, 2012, 1:34 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry drives between Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

    When Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry crumpled on the floor in pain following rolling his ankle Tuesday night (stepping on the foot of OKC’s Serge Ibaka), him not playing Wednesday against the Mavericks seemed a pretty likely outcome. Officially, the team has said Lowry is out for the game, which means a lot of of…

  13. Thunder get right with blowout destruction of Raptors

    Nov 7, 2012, 12:05 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook passes inside to a teammate in their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Oklahoma City

    If you want the short version of how things went for the Raptors in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, we have that for you here and here. For those that want the excruciating details, feel free to continue. It’s amazing how any the talk of chemistry issues and in-house bickering suddenly disappears when a weaker opponent…

  14. Video: Kevin Durant throws it down on Jonas Valanciunas

    Nov 6, 2012, 11:23 PM EST

    Kevin Durant

    This play was basically a microcosm of the Thunder’s blowout of the Raptors. Kevin Durant saw the opportunity, and was aggressive in taking it. Jonas Valanciunas half-heartedly contested, but was late in doing so, before ducking out at the very end to avoid further embarrassment. So, yeah. That was pretty much how things went for…

  15. Kyle Lowry leaves game with ankle injury

    Nov 6, 2012, 10:55 PM EST

    Kyle Lowry

    The Toronto Raptors got shelled by the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, 108-88, but one loss in a great big season is likely the last thing on the mind of everyone in the Raptors organization right now. Emerging star Kyle Lowry, who has started the season as hot as anyone north of James Harden, has been…

  16. Gerald Henderson to miss 2-4 weeks with foot sprain

    Nov 6, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    Gerald Henderson

    Gerald Henderson is having the worst week ever. It started about seven days ago, when the Bobcats opted not to extend his contract, despite the fact that he led them in scoring during the 2011-12 season. Then, Henderson had to watch draft classmate DeMar DeRozan get 40 million dollars over four years, despite the fact…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers keep it simple and win. Finally.

    Nov 5, 2012, 2:55 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Jason Maxiell

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while thinking that a 14-year-old is a whole lot better at golf than you…. Lakers 108, Pistons 79: The Lakers had a 23-5 run in the second half of the first quarter, and that was pretty much it…

  19. Amir Johnson wore shoes with Amir Johnson’s face on them

    Nov 2, 2012, 10:11 AM EST

    amir johnson face shoes

    Half the league (or more) wear shoes with Michael Jordan’s silhouette on them. A handful of guys have their own signature shoes to lace up. Then there is Toronto’s Amir Johnson, who took the floor in the opener wearing custom Nike’s with his own face on them (hat tip to The Basketball Jones for noticing…

  20. Winderman: Trying to make sense of rookie contract extensions

    Nov 1, 2012, 2:56 PM EST

    Daryl Morey, James Harden

    On many levels it makes sense that the NBA’s deadline for rookie-scale extensions is Oct. 31. Because while there are many treats (for the players involved), there also can be more than a few tricks (down the road when it comes to teams’ salary caps and luxury taxes). James Harden? He deserved as much as…

  21. Jrue Holiday signs $41 million contract extension with Philly

    Nov 1, 2012, 9:24 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers Jrue Holiday and Thaddeus Young celebrate a win over the Denver Nuggets during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    The Philadelphia 76ers like the idea of a core built around Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner and Andrew Bynum. Now comes the time the have to start to pay to keep that core together. It starts with Holiday, who at the last minute before the Wednesday night deadline reached terms for then signed a four-year, $41…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  23. Taj Gibson agrees to 4-year, $38 million extension with Bulls

    Nov 1, 2012, 1:45 AM EST

    Taj Gibson

    It came down to the last minute, but a deal got done just before the deadline. We’ll let you be the judge who got the better of it. Taj Gibson and the Bulls agreed to a contract extension worth up to $38 million over four years. Reports say it’ll be difficult for Gibson to reach…

  24. Video: George Hill’s game-winning floater buries the Raptors

    Oct 31, 2012, 11:39 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Toronto Raptors

    Entertaining opening night contest in Toronto between the Raptors and the Pacers. There were plenty of solid performances for both teams — David West had his way offensively with 25 points in 28 minutes, Paul George finished with 14 points, 15 rebounds, and five assists, and for the Raptors, Kyle Lowry did it all with…

  25. Raptors, DeMar DeRozan reach terms on $40 million extension

    Oct 31, 2012, 7:56 PM EST

    Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan goes to the basket against Bucks forward Tobias Harris during their NBA basketball pre-season game in Toronto

    The Raptors are rebuilding. Trying to figure out who is part of their future. DeMar DeRozan is now locked in as a part of it. At a bigger price that many expected, much likely more than he would have gotten on the open market. The Raptors and DeRozan agreed to a four-year, $40 million extension…
