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...

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...

When we conceived of this recurring column here, it was done in a spirit of good faith.

Raptors look for win no. 9 in a row vs. the Nets: Preview, start time, and more

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — The Raptors are playing some of the best basketball in franchise history. The Nets... are not. The Raptors are on a tear right now, perhaps the most pronounced and significant run they’ve been on since... since... I honestly can’t even recall. There was that 11-game win streak in 2015-16, but we were still coming off the horrors of the ‘15 post-season and while we knew the Raptors were...

Power Rankings Poll Week 21: Raptors on top of the world, to some

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — Toronto continued its run this past week, and looks to be just about the best team in the league. Except, hmmmm. Do not tell Dwane Casey the Raptors may be on top of the NBA pyramid. He’ll hear none of that. For him, every game, win or lose, is just one more game in the books, onto the next one, forever and ever, amen. It’s a sharp mindset to have for the grind of the regular season, but...

SBN: Raptors HQ (Josh Kern) — The Toronto Raptors took care of business in Madison Square Garden, beating the Knicks 132-106. We’ve got five quick thoughts on the latest blowout. I don’t think anyone would’ve been shocked if the Toronto Raptors had experienced a letdown on Sunday after Friday night’s big win. But they were all business and used a strong second half to handle the New York Knicks 132-106. Sunday...

Raptors discard Knicks on the road, 132-106

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — The Knicks were lively, but couldn’t defend an electric afternoon by the Raptors bench. Coming off an emotional win on Friday over the Western Conference-leading Rockets , the Raptors were almost set up to fail today. They had a quick turnaround to play New York on the road. They got the last-minute “we got this” boost of getting Delon Wright back from injury, and not having to play...

After the win on Friday against the Rockets , I’m once again asking the Big Questions™ about these Toronto Raptors .

C.J. Miles is the missing piece the Raptors have always needed

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mikey Rouleau) — The Raptors are on the verge of something special this season, and the recent form of C.J. Miles may prove to be a key element in their successful playoff run. Offense and three-point shooting have become the undeniable blueprint for success in today’s NBA. The Golden State Warriors have confirmed the new paradigm: a three-point shooting team can win multiple league titles. While it used...

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — A possible trap game and a Finals preview are sandwiched between games against tankers. Did you know the Raptors have the longest win streak in the Eastern Conference? Sure it’s only four, but stick with me here. Do you know how many win streaks of at least five games there are in the West? Five different streaks — or seven if you consider Houston, currently on their third consecutive...
