Oh hey, the Brooklyn Nets again!
Fresh from a four-game home-stand that saw them build a three-game winning streak, the Toronto Raptors now hit the road for three, starting at Barclays Center. The Raptors just took care of the Nets on Friday, setting a franchise record for points scored in a regulation game after allowing the Nets to hang around well into the third quarter. This time around, with a back-to-back situation, the Raptors would be well-served to put them away even earlier, getting th

But traditional statistics don’t show the whole picture as Joseph does not look like the same player he was last season on the defensive end. What has traditionally been his calling card has been a clear area of struggle for him. Last season he was a revelation for the Raptors in how he hounded opponents. This season he is regularly getting blown past, or losing his man off ball. Something just appears to be

- Everyone loves a good positional controversy. Arguments are built daily in the forums for power forwards that could start for Toronto, whether it be someone on the roster (Hi, Patrick!), or someone in a trade, we can’t help but argue over the options that lie before us.
Yes, the biggest reason for these arguments is the fact that the Raptors are desperately searching for a starting quality power forward, but we also just like to argue. If we can’t find an obvious position

- 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 cuts to the basket, moving to open spots for 3, everything the Raptors thought they were getting.
- 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 that has had become the teams calling card over the last 30 days was a consistent collective effort – the team

- The Toronto Raptors continue their easier stretch of schedule on Sunday, closing out a four-game home-stand by hosting the New York Knicks for a matinee. The Knicks enter in a bit of a mess, with their Thursday victory against the Chicago Bulls pushing them to 2-9 over their last 11. They’re 18-22 overall, just average on offense, and near the bottom on defense, and it’s led to some apparent in-fighting, with their superstar reportedly going off on the team after a loss to the 76ers

To say the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks occupy entirely opposite ends of the NBA spectrum feels like the greatest understatement ever made. Punctuating this fact is the occurrences in the Mecca this past week. Derrick rose went AWOL on what was later deemed a personal family matter. When he finally resurfaced, rumor is he was fined something in the neighborhood of $200,000.00, but there
