Prospect Report: The post-playoff Raptors 905 assessment

SBN: Raptors HQ (JD Quirante) — The Raptors 905 prospects came up short of the goal, but each had their moments. Here’s a look at where each stands now after the postseason. In one sense, there was an abrupt end to the Raptors 905 season. They lost 2-0 in the G League Final and — poof — that was it. But in another sense, the 905 put together an amazingly long run, one that was perhaps unexpected given roster turnover. ...

Power Rankings Poll Week 25: The final countdown for the Raptors

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — This is the final edition of this year’s Power Rankings Poll. Did the Raptors go out on top? Are they being ranked fairly? Let’s decide. If there is but one thing we can definitively take away from the end of an NBA regular season it is this: hoo boy, are they ever long. We’ve only spent about seven months with this one, and yet it feels like we’ve been at it for years. Now, with just two...

The Rap-Up Road to 60: Picking winners for the final two games

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — With 58 wins and two games left: Will the Raptors hit the magic number? The Road to 60 concludes. In the 71-year history of the NBA, 76 teams have achieved 60 wins or more in a single season. Can the Raptors join the club? Possibly. Does it matter? Not really. When I wrote my first Raptors HQ article on January 13, predicting the Raps to finish with the best record in the East , it was a...

Standings Watch: First place belongs to Toronto

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — It got tense there, but with a win over the Celtics last night in Toronto, the Raptors appear set to claim their first number one seed in franchise history. We just had to see how Toronto’s back-to-back against the Cavaliers and Celtics would turn out before one final edition of the Standings Watch. By this time next week we’ll know for certain the identity of the Raptors ’ first round...

The 905 beat the Westchester Knicks 92-80, head to the G League Conference Finals

SBN: Raptors HQ (Cole Shelton) — With the comeback win, the 905 are just one win away from their second straight appearance in the G League Finals. Although the Raptors 905 finished with the second-best record in the Eastern Conference, they were the 4th seed entering the playoffs, since the top three seeds were division winners. At the top, was the Westchester Knicks , who got a bye through Round One but had to meet the...

Lorenzo Brown leads the 905 to 92-88 playoff win over the Grand Rapids Drive

SBN: Raptors HQ (Cole Shelton) — It was a nail-biter but with the win, the 905 are off to Westchester for the second round of the playoffs. The Raptors 905 finished the season with the second-best record in the Eastern Conference but still finished fourth in playoff seeding due to the Westchester Knicks winning the 905’s division. With that, the Knicks got the bye and the 905 had to play a one-game playoff at home...

The NBA G League’s regular season ended this week, with the 905 playing one more game on their west coast trip, before finishing the regular season off at home. The team finished the year 31-19, in second place in the Eastern...

Culture Watch: Prepare for the Northern Invasion

SBN: Raptors HQ (Kelsea O'Brien) — The Raptors hit New York this past week, and they brought the whole city with them. This past week I had the opportunity to follow the Raptors on the road and watch them obliterate both the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets . While the scores were not surprising, the number of Raptors fans traveling far and wide, was. When I left Toronto for New York on Friday, I was a little bit...

Raw Raptor Rankings Week 21: On beating Houston, and everyone else

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — The Raptors beat the Western Conference’s best, reached the 50-win mark, and continued a win streak. A good week indeed. I’m officially running out of superlatives. Writing about a group of young NBA players was supposed to be an exercise in the ups and downs of an early career. Instead, we’ve got the really surprising, really enigmatic, really good Raptors bench mob. For what feels like...

Report: Raptors planning to sign Nigel Hayes to second 10-day contract

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — With two 3s to his name as an NBA player for the Raptors, Toronto is reportedly looking to keep Hayes around for now. As reported last night by the big man Adrian Wojnarowski, for whom no deal is too small, the Raptors are apparently set to sign swingman Nigel Hayes to a second 10-day contract. The official report, such as it is, is right here: Toronto is signing Nigel Hayes to a...

Who is the Raptors Breakthrough Player of the 2017-18 season?

SBN: Raptors HQ (ConorMcCreery) — Sure, all the Raps have pretty much exceeded expectations, but who’s been the exceed-iest? It’s been a very good year to be a Toronto Raptors fan. It’s been so good that the nagging sense of doubt that losing a random Thursday night game on the road in, say, Indiana means the Raps will slog through the playoffs yet again, barely feels ever-present anymore. It’s safe to say that...

Raptors beat the Nets, 116-102, earn 50th win of the season

SBN: Raptors HQ (Satbir Singh_) — The Nets looked like a team on a mission before the Raptors quieted them with a team effort in the second half. With the Raptors coming off an enormous victory over Houston, a 26-point win over the Knicks , and riding an eight game win streak, Tuesday night’s game versus the Brooklyn Nets could very well be described as a trap game. There would be two ways the game would go for the...

Raptors vs. Nets Game Thread: Pre-game updates, TV info, and more

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — The Raptors go for win number nine in a row, and the Nets try not to get in the way. Or something. While you were sleeping, the Raptors became the toast of the NBA. It began on Monday with Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star going off . Then today saw two different pieces on Fred VanVleet — from former HQers Alex Wong and James Herbert. And then the big man, Zach Lowe, weighed in...

Fun and Good Highlight: Get some teammates who enjoy playing together

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — The Raptors had an embarrassment of highlight riches this week, so let’s try to celebrate them all together — thematically. When we conceived of this recurring column here, it was done in a spirit of good faith. We were convinced that each week some Raptors incident or play or whatever would have the necessary Fun and Good qualifications to make the entire endeavour worthwhile. When it...
