The Weekly Rap, Apr. 3rd-Apr. 9th: The Regular Season is Not Over

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — We’ve still got five more games of Toronto Raptors action, and we’re still trying to figure out playoff seeding. You’d be forgiven for thinking the NBA season was over. It is not over. In fact, there are times when it feels like it will never be over. Remember when we were lazing about in January, snowed in and cold, and thinking about the inevitable post-season run by the Raptors ? That...

Most Unpopular Raptor of All-Time Bracket: Big Men Region 1

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mitch_Robson) — Day 2 of our bracket challenge is here as Rafael Araujo headlines this region of busts and disappointments. We’re back with part two of our Most Unpopular Raptor of all-time bracket. If you thought the guard region was underwhelming, I promise this big men region will elicit more hard feelings and hate than the love we saw being shown to those in the guard region. (Polls are still open...

The Week That Was: Never Underestimate the Heart of a Three-Time Defending Atlantic Division Champion

SBN: Raptors HQ (steven_lebron) — After winning their second consecutive NBA title in the ‘90s, Rockets head coach Rudy Tomjanovich coined the famous line “never underestimate the heart of a champion” which has stuck with me since and got me thinking about — in a much lesser version, of course — the Raptors without Kyle Lowry for the foreseeable future, especially during their inspired win over the Wizards in Washington on...

The Week That Was: Never Underestimate the Heart of a Three-Time Defending Atlantic Division Champion

SBN: Raptors HQ (steven_lebron) — Here’s everything that happened in Toronto in the past seven days. After winning their second consecutive NBA title in the ‘90s, Rockets head coach Rudy Tomjanovich coined the famous line “never underestimate the heart of a champion” which has stuck with me since and got me thinking about — in a much lesser version, of course — the Raptors without Kyle Lowry for the foreseeable...

Here’s how the Raptors can make a Lowry-less offense work

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Not having Kyle Lowry makes it harder to score. Are there ways in which the Raptors can absorb the blow? Offense was never going to come easy with Kyle Lowry sidelined. In the first two games of his absence, Toronto managed to score with some of the punch that resulted in historic levels of output earlier in the season; DeMar DeRozan offered a throwback to his ludicrous scoring run to...

Raptors Try Again vs. Wizards: Preview, Start Time, and More

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Let’s forget all about Wednesday night and try this again. Only this time the Raptors are in Washington. The Raptors are now a week into life with Kyle Lowry . In that time, fans have seen the full spectrum of performances this team is capable of without its best player. Against Boston and Portland, DeMar DeRozan's individual ability paired with sound secondary contributions was enough....

Bringing Up Bebe Week 19: You Will Be Remembered

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — A trying week for the Raptors, as they try to survive without Kyle Lowry, and Lucas Nogueira drifts from the rotation. Have the Toronto Raptors and coach Dwane Casey forgotten about Lucas Nogueira ? Doubtful, though it is easy to imagine Casey awaking with a start while dreaming of supercut of Bebe's various miscues. For better or worse, Bebe is hard to forget. Still, a lot has been...

DeRozan’s Jumper Seals 92-91 Raptors Win Over Knicks

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — It was the perfect DeRozan game, in an imperfect basketball game. When DeMar DeRozan was asked for his favourite road arena on Zach Lowe’s podcast today , he didn’t hesitate. It’s Madison Square Garden. Given who the Raptors guard emulates his game after, you can understand the answer. Kobe Bryant , Michael Jordan, and other great guards have all had memorable, signature moments in The...

The Weekly Rap, Feb. 27th-Mar. 5th: P.J. Tucker Appreciation Thread

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mitch_Robson) — You could say we’re fans of the Baddest Mother Tucker in the League. Following Masai’s steal of P.J. Tucker at the deadline, he spoke of being thrilled to be back where it all started for him as an NBA player way back in 2006, and how excited he was to rejoin a winning team’s program after the past few seasons in Phoenix. The dude is a human wrecking ball on defense, can knock down an...

Raptors look to make it four-straight, visit Knicks at MSG: Preview, Start Time, and more

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Four-straight wins and third in the East are on the line in New York Monday night. Consider the dog days over. In the lead-up to the All-Star break, watching the Raptors started to feel like a chore. Replacing the typical game-day antsiness was a feeling of dread in anticipation of the uneven Raptors’ performance that was sure to come. A mental breather and a pair of swell-fitting...

Raptors Use Strong 2nd Half to Power Past Trail Blazers, 112-106

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mitch_Robson) — The new look, Lowry-less Raptors improve to 2-0 out of the All-Star break. As the bell of the Oscar’s called for Slammin Danny G, I tagged in at the last second to bring you this recap (shocking I know). I was at the ACC for this one so without the luxury of notes, here’s some general musings on the play of the Raps tonight by position group. Guards DeMar DeRozan was once again the...

NBA Trade Deadline: Reviewing the Raptors’ Wish List

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Just because you wished for it, doesn’t mean it will come true. It borders on greedy for Raptors fans to expect a second pre-deadline move by Masai Ujiri before 3 p.m. Thursday. Toronto has already landed it’s prized target in Serge Ibaka -- the long-needed power forward who alters the complexion of the roster and provides stability and versatility to the once thin front court. If the...

NBA All-Star 2017: Lowry exits Three-Point Contest early

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — DeMar DeRozan also made a short cameo on a busy Saturday night. Last year set a mighty high bar for All-Star Saturday Night, and you can give Toronto some of the credit for that. It was also a showcase for big name players. Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon duelled in the Dunk Contest, Klay Thompson hit threes in the Three-Point Shootout, and NBA big men burst onto the Skills Challenge...

In other news, Jared Sullinger made an appearance with the 905 again, as the team headed into the All-Star break on a high note. Here is a summary of what went down. Thursday Feb. 9 — vs....
