Rockets-Raptors Preview

It's unlikely that Kyle Lowry will play Monday night for the Toronto Raptors, who may be better off without him since he has never defeated the Houston Rockets since leaving that club.

DeMar DeRozan throws terrible pass to the Bulls' bench

They say the best defenders affect shots even when they're not near the ball. Well, what about when they're not even on the court?  DeMar DeRozan, take it away: That's from last night's Raptors loss to the Bulls. And yes, that's DeRozan not only throwing a pass to the wrong team, but to Chicago's Joakim Noah, who wasn't even in the game at the time of the play. In good news though...

DeRozan forgot Bulls’ Noah doesn’t play for Toronto

Hey DeMar, that guys, he’s not on your team. Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan found himself trapped defensively by two Bulls defenders. So what will he ever do? Obviously he needs to find an open RAPTORS TEAMMATE for himself, so who did he find? Oh just the Bulls’ Joakim Noah on the sidelines, in his shooting shirt, and a player who doesn’t play for the Raptors. http://cdn.streamable...

DeMar Derozan Accidentally Dishes to Joakim Noah … Who is on the Bulls Bench

Things were looking so promising for Drake’s Toronto Raptors after three quarters against the Chicago Bulls — then the fourth quarter happened.

Andre Drummond finishes with two-handed alley-oop dunk against Raptors

Louis Williams Hero Ball is Not the Recipe for Success

If you look at the box score — and only the box score — of tonight’s Raptors-Pistons game, it looks like Raptors sixth man Louis Williams had himself a solid night. 19 points on 11 shots, plus three three-pointers is about right for him. However, if you actually watched the game, you witnessed Raptors coach Dwane Casey fail to use his final timeout, and allow Williams to jack...

Raptors Coach Casey Says Terrence Ross Has His Focus Back

It would be polite to suggest the Toronto Raptors third year wing Terrence Ross had regressed this season. Expectations were high that Ross would take the next step in becoming an effective ‘three-and-D’ player. Objectively Ross has played better lately, but it was somewhat surprising to hear the level of praise coming from his head coach.
