Oklahoma City Thunder
posted by Romy AquinoThe Raps got their first victory against the Wolves on Sunday, now it's on to the next one, with a two-game West Coast road trip coming up this week. Has the "Kyle Lowry Era" begun? Who knows, but it'll be interesting to see if he continues his hot streak this week. Here's how the week looks for the Toronto Raptors:Toronto Raptors @ OKC Thunder Tuesday, November 6th - 8pm EST If you didn't know already....this game won the NBA Fan Night voting with 45% of the fan vote. That's right, the Raptors will be getting some NBA TV love when they face off against Kevin Durant and the Thunder on Tuesday night. Who did they beat out in the Fan Night voting? Magic-Bulls (38%) and Nuggets-Pistons (17%). Now the fans were most likely voting to see KD and the Thunder than the Toronto Raptors BUT what better stage for this Raptors team to get noticed than on NBA TV? And to make it even more interesting? Pulling out an upset win over OKC.Kyle...

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...
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...

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...
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.

TORONTO -- A flurry of Timberwolves turnovers allowed the Toronto Raptors to maintain their dominance over Minnesota. The Wolves gave the ball away 24 times, leading to 33 Toronto points, in the Raptors' 105-86 win Sunday. It was the 15th victory for Toronto in the past 16 meetings between the teams, and the Raptors have defeated the Wolves nine consecutive times at the Air...
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.
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...

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...
