posted by Mike MasayaPOUND 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 106 - NETS 113 SEASON RECORD: 14W-24LPOUND THE ROCK STAR #1: KYLE LOWRYLINE: 21 pts (5-7), 4-5 3pt, 7-7 FT, 2 astIt has been hinted by Kyle Lowry himself that the coaching staff strongly suggested he become more passive in his role with Raptors. With various injuries to a number of players resulting in a decent run to end December it became clear that team basketball is the team’s only real chance at making a push to the 8th spot in the East. The hashtag #ShareTheRock began to trend on Twitter as fans were happy to see the number of assists increase per game creating fast break opportunities which allowed everyone to touch the ball on offence at least once. With Lowry only playing ...

Kyle Lowry dominated in just 15 minutes tonight. The Toronto Raptors point guard sprained his ankle in the first half and wasn't expected to return. But Lowry gutted out the fourth quarter and finished with 21 points (5-7 FG and 7-7 FT), four three-pointers, two assists and a rebound in just 15 minutes in the losing effort.
Lowry's status is up in the air for Wednesday...
posted by Romy AquinoDon't get mad Raps fans. Kevin Durant was on the Dan Patrick Show today and a little Toronto Raptors shoutout came up in the interview. Apparently, when asked what team he wanted to play for growing up, it was the Toronto Raptors. Why? Mostly because of Vince Carter and because he liked those jerseys. Yep, those old school purples with the red dinosaur...
The Raptors are having an incredibly disappointing season and look as though they will miss the playoffs, once again. They were expected to fight for the 8th seed in the playoffs after a solid draft, starting the new season healthy, adding point guard Kyle Lowry and getting last year’s top five pick, center Jonas Valanciunas over from Europe. However, horrible defense, injuries...
The Brooklyn Nets continue to play inspired basketball since the firing of Avery Johnson. After having 3 straight 20+ point wins, which set a franchise mark, the Nets had a taller order against the 3rd best team in the East, the Indiana Pacers. Yet a strong second half, especially in the 4th, saw the Nets stretch their win streak to a season-high 6 games. Meanwhile, they have vaulted...
The Toronto Raptors have arguably been one of the worst NBA franchises in the past decade finishing fourth or less in the Atlantic Division six times since they joined the 2004-2005 seasons and averaging a 0.407 wining percentage. Currently, the team is in last place in the Atlantic division with a 14-25 record–11 games back from first place.
Fans have criticized Toronto’s management...
In terms of statistics, Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams is having one of his worst years as a pro. He has openly admitted that he has struggled to learn a new offense since leaving the Utah Jazz, and as a result he is averaging only 16.8 points and 7.7 assists per game. Despite all that, Williams was second in the Eastern Conference All-Star voting earlier this month, trailing...
Raptors rookie Terrence Ross only had four points in Tuesday night’s match up against the Brooklyn Nets. But the reverse putback dunk that was responsible for a pair of those points, was a thing of beauty.
Whose in this year’s dunk contest? Gerald Green? Paul George? WOuld Terrence Ross be someone you want to see on the “All-Star Saturday Night” stage?

The Brooklyn Nets owned by Russian bazillionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. So how much do they know about anything Russia? The answer: nyet.
Brook Lopez (#11), spent two years at Stanford and wasn’t positive where Russia is.
NEW YORK -- P.J. Carlesimo took a glance at the final stat sheet after his Nets won for the seventh straight time and ninth time out of 10 under his watch, and he marveled at the fact that Brooklyn indeed defeated the Toronto Raptors. "We beat a very good team," Carlesimo said after the Nets' 113-106 victory Tuesday night at the Barclays Center in a game they easily...
NEW YORK -- Brook Lopez scored 22 points, and teammates Joe Johnson and Deron Williams chipped in with 21 points each, leading the Brooklyn Nets to their seventh straight victory, a 113-106 decision over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night at the Barclays Center. The win gave interim Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo a 9-1 record since he took over for Avery Johnson last month. It also...
Just three weeks ago, the Brooklyn Nets owned a .500 record and fired their coach. Now, they're in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and possess the NBA's longest active winning streak.
The Atlanta Hawks, meanwhile, were 10 games over the break-even mark on New Year's Day but have earned just one win since.
In the opener of a home-and-home series, the Nets go for...
