Tweet After six and a half seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies it’s going to take some time to get used to seeing Rudy Gay in a Toronto Raptors uniform. He’s gotten off to a pretty decent start with his new team, averaging 24 points, six boards, and over three steals through the first four [...]

I still don’t like the trade from a business standpoint, but Rudy Gay proved his basic on-court worth to the Raptors in a 100-98 overtime victory in Indiana.

The game went into overtime after Amir Johnson's buzzer-beating tip-in stood following a replay review. The Raptors won it when Gay hit a 17-foot jumper with 1.7 seconds left and Paul George's 15-footer rimmed...
The Memphis Grizzlies have struggled since dealing Rudy Gay. Perhaps surprisingly, though, his absence has seemingly taken a bigger toll on defense.
The Grizzlies' defensive woes, however, pale in comparison to what the Golden State Warriors are experiencing.
Both will try to avoid three-game losing streaks Friday night when they meet in Memphis.
The Grizzlies (30-18) have...
Keeping the Celtics as a contending team is a daunting prospect with all their injury concerns and the continual conversation of are they better without Rondo. Last night's game provided the proof that this team is mediocre at best. The Toronto Raptors led by new leader, Rudy Gay gave a spirited effort and Boston played down to their expectations. It was very hard to tell...
