NBA Playoffs: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors series preview

In a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, the Cavs and Raptors face off once again, this time with a spot in the ECF on the line. After sweeping the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the NBA playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers have had a lot of time to rest and prepare for their next opponent. On Thursday night, the Toronto Raptors survived and advanced against those pesky Milwaukee Bucks after blowing a 25 point lead in Game 6, but thanks to the heroics of DeMar DeRozan, were able to hold on in the end. In a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, the Cavs and...

NBA Playoffs: DeMar DeRozan dunked the Bucks out of the building

And the Raptors are heading to the second round because of it. I had already sweat clean through my shirt, cursed about four dozen times and thrown multiple objects around the room to become the main attraction of my roommate’s birthday party during the second half debacle of last night’s game. After a blackout as I watched the Raps offense fail to cross half court and old man Jason Terry hit three after three like it was the 2011 Finals, I managed to regain consciousness on this nifty little Patrick Patterson give ‘n go and the follow up Cory Joseph three ball. (My favourite part...

Shootaround (April 27) -- Toronto Raptors looking to atone for past Game 6 failures

No. 1: Raptors mindful of past Game 6 flubs -- The Kyle Lowry/DeMar DeRozan-era Toronto Raptors have played in four Game 6s ... and are 0-4 in those games. As tonight's Game 6 with the Milwaukee Bucks nears (7 ET, TNT), the Raptors are not only looking to close out the series but also vanquish some demons of playoffs past.

NBA Playoffs: This is the best version of DeMar DeRozan

NBA Playoffs: This is the best version of DeMar DeRozan

DeRozan has been knocked for playoff performances, but his selflessness is fueling the Raptors’ offense. Consider, through gritted teeth if you have to, Kobe Bryant’s banal concept of “musecage.” All this business of needing to embrace your light and dark side in order to achieve greatness. A puppet can explain it to you if you need help. The self-invention of musecage is a way for Kobe’s legend to live on. It dictates that, in order to respond to the hurdles of a basketball game, you must summon motivation and score in volume. This is what Bryant will be remembered for, anyway....

NBA Playoffs: A trio of Raptors surprise in Toronto’s Game 5 victory

Powell’s excellence led the way, but some wacky and fortunate bounces contributed to Toronto’s blowout win. Led by a miraculous two-way performance with a sore back from Kyle Lowry, a career game for Norman Powell, and a night of distribution from DeMar DeRozan, the Raptors dominated the Bucks for the first time in the series. For Toronto to look like themselves in the playoffs is a wacky occurrence, and last night’s game was no exception.

NBA Playoffs, Raptors vs. Bucks, Game 5: Everyone shows up and Toronto wins big 118-93

Norm was huge, Serge was big, Lowry was heroic, DeRozan was crushing, and the Raptors looked amazing in Game 5. The story before Raptors-Bucks Game 5 was centred around Kyle Lowry: how was his back feeling? How effective would he be? Could the Raptors survive with him at less than 100 percent? It was a concern. But instead of showing worry, the rest of the Raptors squad showed support. The end result: a 118-83 victory over the Bucks with enough stories to drown out the Lowry anxiety, and propel the Raptors to a 3-2 series lead. Let’s begin with the obvious highlight: Norman Powell....
