Power Rankings Poll Week 4: Hard times against good teams

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — The Raptors can’t buy one against good teams. Let’s see how the experts react. It’s early, it’s early, it’s early. Being reasonable about the Toronto Raptors seems excessively difficult after yesterday’s loss to the Boston Celtics sans Kyrie Irving. Plenty of the issues on the court could’ve been avoided (or so it seems). Jonas Valanciunas coming in and wiping away his team’s...

Power Rankings Poll Week 3: Consistently inconsistent, inside and out of Toronto

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — The Raptors, an up-and-down team, had an up-and-down week. How were they ranked as a result? There was something heartening about coach Dwane Casey mentioning his team’s consistency. He knows having a team with a lot of young guys means having to deal with up-and-down play. Some nights Fred VanVleet will go off for 10 points out of nowhere, or Jakob Poeltl will grab 14 rebounds, and so...

Raptors Power Ranking Poll Week 1: It’s baaaaack

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — Here’s where we collect the prominent NBA Power Rankings of the week and figure out how the Raptors are doing. The Raptors of the 2017-18 season are different, but also very much the same. It’s what drives some people crazy when they think about the team.

Vegas releases over/under win totals for the 2017-18 NBA regular season

SBN: Raptors HQ (Stephen Campbell) — Gamble responsibly, folks Did you know you can gamble on pretty much anything? It’s true. I’ve worked full-time in the online sports betting industry for three and a half years and some of the stuff out there is pretty wild. For instance, at my old job I was once asked to write an article highlighting the odds of what Prince William and Kate Middleton would name their unborn baby. The...

Ranking the Atlantic Division: End of August edition

SBN: Raptors HQ (Adam Iafrate) — The NBA’s Atlantic has experienced a greater turnover than any other division this off-season. What will this mean for its five hopeful contenders? For a few years, the bulk of teams in the NBA’s Atlantic division have been more adept at positioning themselves among the top of draft lotteries than in playoff seedings. For some of the teams, [clears throat] like the Nets , finding themselves...

What the Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas trade means for the Raptors

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — An out-of-nowhere mega trade between the East’s two top teams means a lot to Toronto, but it’s mostly not good news. You’ll forgive Raptors fans their glee as news trickled — exploded? — out that Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland. Despite three runs to the Finals, the miraculous 2016 title, and a fearsome choke hold on the entire Eastern Conference —...

Raptors What Ifs: Andrea Bargnani and the 2006 No. 1 pick

SBN: Raptors HQ (Dylan Litman) — “With the first pick in the 2006 draft, the Toronto Raptors select... LaMarcus Aldridge.” There are certain words that, when uttered, evoke strong feelings in Raptors fans. For example, hearing about the Brooklyn Nets might induce feelings of resentment. When the Cleveland Cavaliers are brought up in conversation, the topic may provoke feelings of existential dread. Many players and...

NBA Schedule Release: Five Raptors games you should go to this season

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Because sometimes Wednesday games against lottery teams can be fun! Because it’s placed smack dab in the middle of the NBA’s tumbleweed season, schedule-release day is much ballyhooed. Ultimately, it’s an uninteresting blip that you probably won’t think about again until the 2017-18 season is upon us — and even then, it really only makes sense to fret over the schedule one week at a time, at...

Raptors What Ifs: The Solomon Hill Three-Pointer

SBN: Raptors HQ (Dylan Litman) — The future of the Raptors hinges on events unfolding in a specific way. Let’s explore past scenarios, and what may have happened if the opposite had occurred. When reminiscing on the past, it’s easy to become entranced by illusory scenarios that might’ve been, had an incident not swayed the outcome of an event. For example, I’m sure not a day goes by that Chicago Bulls fans aren’t thinking...

Predicting the Raptors’ Win Total for the 2017-18 season

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Hackett) — Let’s compare Toronto’s potential win totals with all of their competitors too. For the past several seasons, I’ve attempted to predict the win total for the Raptors using various player value measures and their correlations to win rates. I’ve tried to keep my approach fairly consistent, with small common sense tweaks each year. The model I used last season used only boxscore-derived...

The Kyrie Irving reports are exactly why the Raptors kept the band together

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — With the three-time reigning Eastern Conference champs in turmoil, the Raptors’ off-season looks better than ever. Change in the NBA seems impossible until it isn’t. Kevin Durant , James Harden and Russell Westbrook were supposed to dominate a decade in Oklahoma City; Derrick Rose’s Bulls and the Miami Big 3 were meant to duke it out for the right to be the Thunder ’s annual foil....
