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), 4-4 FT, 5 ast, 7 reb, 3 stlGet used to seeing Kyle Lowry as the # 1 Pound The Rock Player for the Raptors this season. There is no denying that Lowry is determined to not only lead this team to victory but encourage the entire roster to match his effort by performing at a high level every night. Lowry either rewarded himself by scoring off of his steals or following up offensive rebounds with assists. Another great pound the rock performance on both ends of the court. Stay tuned, more of them on the way.POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: DEMAR DEROZANLINE:  22 pts (8-14), 5-6 FT, 7 reb, 3 stlDeRozan and Lowry are clearly be...

Kyle Lowry Pulled a Curry, He Couldn’t Just Pull his Groin?

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...

Raptors fall to 0-2 on the season. Brooklyn wins 107-100.

JbSmooth84.com Toronto Raptors 2012-2013 Preview

The Raptors, what can I say about them…(thinking)….(still thinking)… Well, I don’t believe they’re the worse team in the league. However, they’re darn close. With a young roster, I see the Raptors going through a stretch where they don’t win many games, but improvement with the team will be seen. They added Kyle Lowry, Landry Fields, Linas Kleiza, so they will have...

Raptors-Thunder Preview

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.
