Report: Serge Ibaka suspended three games for fight with Marquese Chriss

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — To add insult to spiritual injury, the Raptors will be without Serge Ibaka, their (mostly) starting centre, for the next three games after instigating a fight with Cleveland’s Marquese Chriss. We all knew a suspension was coming for Serge Ibaka of the Raptors after his role in the fracas on Monday night. It was, after all, Ibaka who started the altercation physically — even if the ...

The Rap-Up: Games of the Week for Mar. 11-17

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — The Raptors have three games this week — against the Cavaliers, Lakers, and Pistons — which means the squad has three chances to deal with past failures. Are you familiar with Lent? For (practicing) Catholics, it’s a six-week training camp for Easter. For everyone else who observes, it’s a time to give up something you love (chocolate, coffee, swearing, etc.). Why? Everyone has their own...

Raptors vs. Heat Game Thread: Updates, TV info, and more

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — The Raptors tip-off an afternoon game against the Heat. We know Kawhi Leonard is not playing, but what else can we prepare for? Let’s watch. Sorry to say this Heat fans, but when considering a shortlist of the most boring or least necessary teams in the NBA, Miami always seems to pop up on my personal list. They’re not abjectly terrible like the Phoenix Suns or New York Knicks , they...

Toronto Temperature: How good exactly are these new-look Raptors?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Ben_Scott) — The Raptors lost by 15 to the Magic only to demolish the Celtics by 23. The NBA is predictable sometimes. This week needs a temperature check. Watching the Raptors is pretty startling nowadays. Everything is so fresh and new. Jeremy Lin is a Raptor. Marc Gasol is a Raptor. Jodie Meeks is 201st on the Raptors all-time scoring list (stat idea courtesy of Blake Murphy). I can hardly...

Analyzing Toronto's starting lineup: Should the Raptors start Gasol?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Hackett) — The Raptors may want to consider changing the starting lineup, if only because the numbers suggest they could be really, really good. The Raptors just made their biggest trade deadline acquisition in franchise history. It would have been perhaps the biggest all-in move ever if they hadn’t set that bar far higher with Kawhi Leonard in the summer. Still, Marc Gasol is the sort of name...

The Rap-Up: Games of the Week for February 21-24

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — DeReturn of DeMar DeRozan should be a DeLight for all De Fans. (No more puns — we promise.) “But considering the Raptors ’ long history of abject misery — year after year of losing basketball, terrible injuries, brutal trades, bone-headed draft pick selections, and everything else — maybe the karmic balance will work in Toronto’s favour after all.” If those words look familiar, it’s...

That’s A Rap #4: Gasolina

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — With Gasol and Lin in the mix, the Raptors have their 9-man playoff rotation and 20+ games to iron out chemistry/lineup issues. Do you remember what you were feeling after the Raptors got swept (again) by the Cavaliers last year? Does utter despair cover it? There was so much uncertainty about the direction of a Toronto team that had just finished the best season in franchise history,...

Five thoughts on last night: Raptors 127, Nets 125

SBN: Raptors HQ (Josh Kern) — Toronto and Brooklyn went down to the wire in a super-fun Eastern Conference shoot-out That was a fun one, wasn’t it? Joe Harris shot the lights out early, Kyle Lowry did Kyle Lowry things, D’Angelo Russell took over for a stretch, Marc Gasol took over for a stretch, and both teams hit big shots in the clutch... the Raptors just hit a couple more. Who knew the Toronto Raptors and...

Raptors beat hot shooting Nets, 127-125

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — Despite 20 made threes from the visitors, the Raptors got the job done late with the help from an excellent home debut for Marc Gasol. When it comes to judging team chemistry, you want trial by fire. Winning against bad teams is one thing (sorry, Knicks ), but to get a glimpse at what the important moments will look like, you need to do it against the good teams. If this whole lede sounds...

The Rap-Up: Games of the Week for February 11 - 17

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — The Raptors face a couple of possible first round opponents before entering the All-Star break. “I’m coming home. I’m coming home. Tell the world, I’m coming home. Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday.” Sorry. I never really liked that song either. And now it’s stuck in both our heads! Skylar Grey sang those memorable lyrics on Diddy’s hit song, Coming Home, which was released...
