Raptors rookie forward Jonas Valanciunas is learning the hard way about contesting a dunk in the NBA. On Tuesday night, Kevin Durant had a powerful flush on Valanciunas. This might make the 20-year-old 7-footer think about protecting himself a little better before getting posterized.HT: Los That Sports Blog

Last night was a long one so we’re slowly getting into the swing of things. While we get ourselves together take a moment to watch a Kevin Durant welcomed Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas into the league by dunking all on his head.
Durant had to do this to someone, since it was done to him a couple days ago.
The post Here’s Kevin Durant dunking all over Jonas Valanciunas first...
The Deal: 4 years- 40 million
Demar Derozan is a good offensive player, with elite potential. However he is inefficient, a poor long-range shooter, a ball-hog, a bad defender and just not a ten million dollar player. However, that has not stopped the Toronto Raptors from giving him a forty million dollar contract.
Derozan is a very gifted player on offense and an explosive athlete...
We at Cosby Sweaters are still searching for a good term to replace “posterize,” and for this gem we have chosen to go with baptismal. Kevin Durant took absolutely no mercy on election night when he dunked all over rookie Jonas Valanciunas. The Thunder dominated the Toronto Raptors 108-88 and there is no word if Jonas will return to the NBA following that embarrassment.
PUTS 'F' IN FUNDAMENTALS
The Toronto Raptors agreed to pay former Knicks small forward Landry Fields $20 million over three years during the off-season. Do they wish they could take the deal back? They’d probably answer ‘yes’ at this point. Through four games, Fields is averaging a measly 2.5 points a game in 22 minutes of action. At the same time, Fields is missing easy layups like this one against...
Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry is not active for Wednesday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks after leaving the Raptors' last game with a sprained right ankle.
Lowry, who was acquired this past summer from Houston, injured his ankle Tuesday night against Oklahoma City and left with 1:29 remaining in the first half. The seventh-year guard is averaging 18.3 points and...

Game 4: vs. TORONTO W (108-88)
The Oklahoma City Thunder cruised to a 20-point, election night victory over the Toronto Raptors Tuesday at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder finished with a season-high 24 assists with six players scoring in double-digits.
Oklahoma City’s ball movement was one of the main factors in their 20-point victory over [...]
While most of you were probably keeping tabs on the United States presidential race, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kevin Durant was busy dunking on people.
Check out this poster that he put on Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas:

DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks' streak of shooting at least 60 percent ended at two games, but they did extend their winning streak to three in a row, dumping the Toronto Raptors 109-104 Wednesday at the American Airlines Center. The Raptors trailed by double digits for most of the game but came back with a late charge, getting to within five points twice in the final minute...
Vince Carter was probably a little nostalgic when his former team came to Dallas last night. The Toronto Raptors were Carter’s first team and arguably the best years of his career. He dug the expansion team out of the cellar, led them to their first playoff appearance and first series win and even scored the first points in the Air Canada Centre.
He has a lot of fond memories...
The last dunk we showed you on here was a posterizing slam from the Hawks' Jeff Teague over Thunder superstar Kevin Durant. And on Tuesday night against the Raptors, Durant was on the other end of such a play, as he usually is.

The first thing you’ll probably notice about the following dunk is how incredibly similar it is to the one that Jeff Teague threw down over Kevin Durant just a few days ago. Lou doesn’t take off from quite the distance that Jeff did, and there’s a little less contact, but the similarities are still uncanny. Check it out…
Uncanny, right? I must say, I love this coincidence...
