Oklahoma City Thunder
There I was just minding my own business, laying on my couch (or is it lying?) and watching the Raptors-Thunder game when our hero Kyle Lowry stepped on that thug, Serge Ibaka’s foot and twisted his ankle. I would expect something like this out of Stephen Curry but Lowry? He’s usually pulling his groin but not turning his ankle so this came out of nowhere. I pull my groin from time to time but that’s a private matter. Anyhoo! Jose Calderon is your Huckleberry while I expect DeMar DeRozan to continue pouring in the points at the two. Who else benefits? Landry Fields? Meh, a little bit. Alan Anderson? Meh, a tiny bit. Dominic McGuire, the black Irish guy? Not so much. Linas Kleiza??? Meh-be. See what I did there? In short, I don’t see any miracle pick up here to help you win your week so just monitor the situation and pray for Kyle. Insert sad face emoticon here. We’ll know more today!
With only three NBA games last night, there wasn’t much action but here’s what else I saw anyway:
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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...
Kyle Lowry suffered a right ankle sprain during the second quarter of the Raptors' game on Tuesday against the Thunder.
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...
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...
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.

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 [...]
I don’t remember where I heard it or read it. I think it was on listening to commentary during a pre-season game. Someone said that he didn’t think Kyle Lowry would do well this season. He was coming off a career year with the Houston Rockets and was now with a new team, the Toronto Raptors. The outlook wasn’t looking good that he would replicate his stellar season. I listened...
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.
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...
POUND THE ROCK STARS - On a nightly basis, no matter how good or bad the Raps play, no matter if they blow out a team or if they get blown out and no matter if they win or lose, these are the Raptors with the best 'Pound the Rock' status for the night.FINAL SCORE: RAPTORS 105, WOLVES 86 SEASON RECORD: 1W-2LPOUND THE ROCK STAR #1: KYLE LOWRYLINE: 22 pts (8-10)...

The Oklahoma City Thunder are off to a slow start, but newcomer Kevin Martin isn't.
Neither is Martin's former backcourt mate, Kyle Lowry, who is also making quite an impression with his new team.
Off to their worst start since relocating from Seattle, the Thunder close out a three-game homestand Tuesday night when the Toronto Raptors try to build on their first victory...
