Found December 16, 2012 on My Sports Rumors:

Toronto Raptors guard Demar DeRozan had a decent game against the Houston Rockets today scoring 19 points and seven rebounds. The highlight of his day though wasn’t the win it was his very entertaining reverse dunk. DeRozan, while standing behind the arc, took a pass slowly went to his right then took off down the baseline around the entire Rockets defense. As he neared the basket he jumped and performed a reverse slam that you’d normally see in a dunk contest. addthis_url = ''; addthis_title = 'Video%3A+DeRozan+reverse+slam'; addthis_pub = '';


Raptors Rumors: Trades on Hold as Andrea Bargnani and Kyle Lowry Get Healthy

The Toronto Raptors aren't quite ready to begin talking trades.  Their hottest chips are not in a position to be traded.  Both Andrew Bargnani and Kyle Lowry are battling muscle and ligament tears.  Bargnani's is worse than Lowry's but the Raptors are planning to wait for both players to be healthy before discussing trades of any sort.According to Ken Berger of CBS...

Report: Raptors Hesitant To Take Pau Gasol

The Raptors, sources say, are leery of taking a flier on yet another international player, despite Gasol’s obvious and longstanding talents. GM Bryan Colangelo has gone this route before, remember — signing Jorge Garbajosa, drafting Bargnani, signing Hedo Turkoglu — and even though Gasol would fit in with just about any team, including, most assuredly, the 7-19 Raptors, Toronto...

Raptors Learning About Chemistry 101

Chemistry, on the court and off, isn't something you can force. If you could, every team would do it. It comes naturally sometimes, like the way Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan seemed to click off the hop. But usually, it's as a result of time spent playing together, as with Jose Calderon and Amir Johnson.

Drowning Here In Summer’s Calderon

With Kyle Lowry and Andrea Bargnani out of the line-up due to injury concerns, Jose Calderon started for the Raptors and finished with a triple double (18 points, 10 rebounds, 14 assists), plus a block and a steal. Eventually, Lowry and Bargnani will come back and there will likely be no place left for Calderon besides the bench, but for me, Jose will always have some value. He still...

Carter And The Raptors Need Each Other

It has been eight long years since Vince Carter was traded to the New Jersey Nets, but basketball fans in Toronto have yet to forgive or forget what happened. A return to Toronto for a season would allow him to mentor the team’s younger player and earn back the good favour of basketball fans here in Canada. Then, when he retires, Carter can have his number hanging in the ACC where it belongs.

Calderon's triple-double lifts Raptors to win

TORONTO -- When Jose Calderon grabbed the rebound in the final seconds after a missed 3-point attempt by Carlos Delfino, the Toronto Raptors point guard had his second triple-double of the season and his career. Even better for the Raptors, it came at the end of a 103-96 victory over the Houston Rockets before a crowd of 17,863 at Air Canada Centre. It was the Raptors' second...

2 in a row! Toronto Raptors starting to put things together on the court

The weekend was kind to the Toronto Raptors, and their hard work has seemingly started to pay dividends. On Friday night they hosted the Dallas Mavericks and came away with a dominate 95-74 win. They followed that up with another deserving win, with a renewed focus on the defensive end of the floor, getting past the Houston Rockets, 103-96 to provide their 2nd win in a row and their...

Calderon Taking Lead Role For Raptors

Jose Calderon has been outstanding for the Raptors over their past two games, correcting course on what had been a disappointing season to date.

All-Access: Raptors 95, Mavs 74

The Raptors entered Friday on a six-game losing streak, having tasted defeat in 12 of their previous 13 games, and without arguably their two best players in Bargnani and Lowry. On paper, this was supposed to be a gimme. in Your Mavs All-Access Pass, it's something else entirely. ...

Raptors-Cavaliers Preview

The banged-up Toronto Raptors have finally won back-to-back games. Extending that mini-run could be a challenge given their struggles away from home. The Raptors will try to avoid the franchise's second 12-game road losing streak on Tuesday night when they face the Cleveland Cavaliers. Andrea Bargnani (elbow) and Kyle Lowry (triceps) have missed the last three games, but Toronto...
