For the third time in four nights, the Toronto Raptors ride a wave of prolific offence to a big victory. Toronto handed the Knicks a 104-87 loss on Friday night at the Air Canada Centre.

Rockets fall to Raptors to end winning streak

Rockets fall to Raptors to end winning streak

The Rockets couldn’t get stops, and they couldn’t hit shots, and that’s a recipe for a loss. So with all this talk about improved defense for the Houston Rockets, they decided to instead show us the Rockets of old in allowing for the Toronto Raptors to put up a season high in points scored in what finished as a 129-113 defeat for the good guys that broke Houston’s six-game win streak. Houston also allowed Toronto to shoot 51 percent from the field, and the Raptors also had a season-high 76 points in the first half in what was probably the worst overall team effort on defense this...

Raptors revert to old habits down the stretch, lose 95-94

Raptors revert to old habits down the stretch, lose 95-94

Dwane Casey plays the wrong lineups, the Raptors fail to rebound, and fall to the surging Celtics. As the game started, it appeared as if we were going to get strong ball movement from the Raptors’ starters, as DeRozan, Ibaka and Lowry passed around the perimeter, resulting in Lowry being fouled on a three-point attempt. However, the offense stagnated after that, with the Celtics playing tenacious defense, hounding the Raptors and getting steals. However, DeRozan was able to stay active on offense in isolation, by either getting to the basket or shooting over a defender. Kyle Lowry looked...

Raptors take on streaking Celtics: Preview, start time, and more

Can the Raptors keep their win streak going against the hottest team in the league? On Thursday night, the Raptors triumphantly toppled Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, ending the Pelicans’ win streak and beginning one of their own. Kudos to the Raptors’ big men — limiting the opposing frontcourt giants to poor shooting nights is a difficult feat to accomplish. Allowing Jrue Holiday to pour in 34 points, 11 assists and 5 rebounds was certainly less than ideal, but naturally, the Raptors’ defensive holes had to show themselves somewhere. Even still, Kyle Lowry got his mojo back,...
