Raptors Power Rankings Week 12: Bounce back time

With a perfect 3-0 week, the Raptors are moving on up. There were always going to be little dips in the quality level of the Raptors season. Last week, with the defense waxing and waning on the perimeter and at the rim, some of us — including me! — were ready to tailspin into full-on (late 2014-15 season) anxiety mode. The team had lost some bad games, two in a row in fact, and...

Mid-Morning Coffee – Mon, Jan 16

10 things I saw from Raptors-Knicks (15–1–2017) – The Defeated Healthy DeMarre: This is peak Carroll post knee surgery. Carroll is averaging 18.8 points, 6.3 rebounds while shooting 49 percent from the field and 41 from deep to go along with the highest plus-minus on the team over his last four games while logging time at both forward positions. Tonight he was brilliant: heady...

Raptors Play Well For (Almost) An Entire Game!

For the first time in almost a month the Toronto Raptors took the floor and did what they were supposed to do for (almost) full game. There was no getting blown out early and then making a frenzied comeback, no playing down to the level of an overmatched foe and, perhaps most importantly, no need for extended minutes and heroic play from their stars. In place of the inconsistency...

Raptors center has shorts fall down as Jazz player shoots free throw

Raptors center Lucas Nogueira had a major uniform malfunction during Thursday night’s game against the Jazz. It happened when Derrick Favors was preparing to shoot a free throw, and Nogueira was trying to adjust his shorts. Unfortunately, they fell down, and it was pretty embarrassing. Favors missed the free throw, so maybe we should credit Nogueira for playing good defense, in a sense.
