RAPTORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Raptors-Knicks Preview

The slumping Toronto Raptors still sit comfortably atop the otherwise deplorable Atlantic Division, but they haven't resembled a first-place team of late. Toronto tries to avoid its longest skid of the season Saturday night as it goes for a third consecutive win over the NBA-worst New York Knicks.

Tyler Hansbrough and Festus Ezeli Get Ejected For Fighting (Video)

After a made bucket, Ezeli and Hansbrough got tangled up around the top of the key. WHansbrough got up in Ezeli’s face and the Warriors forward then pushed Hansbrough away around the neck area, which prompted a scuffle from there. Video: Raptors...

Warriors-Raptors Preview

Stephen Curry's MVP chances may have been hurt a bit by a poor-shooting effort in a high-profile matchup, but he's always shot well against the Toronto Raptors. Though his backcourt mate Klay Thompson struggles north of the border, the Raptors know they need to find a way to limit the high-scoring duo - and play better in the fourth quarter - to avoid matching their longest losing...

Inconsistency Hurts The Toronto Raptors

If you want to get into Toronto Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey's doghouse, not being ready to play when its time to start the game will do it. “When you don’t come out in this league ready to play mentally and physically, I don’t care who you are, you are going to get your behind handed to you,” Casey said.

Mad Ants Give Raptors Bruno Caboclo A Few Minutes

Toronto Raptors Bruno Caboclo didn’t disappoint in 10.5 minutes with the Mad Ants. In the first half he blocked Thanasis Antetokoupnmpo (older brother of the Bucks Giannis, ‘The Greek Freak’) and grabbed the board. At least he got to play a bit in this game. Canadian Jordan Bachynski played backup center for the Knicks, and in just 14.9 minutes, he led his team in scoring.

Kyle Lowry has hops? Only for the All-Star Game

Ladies and gentlemen…Tyler Hansbrough

Really “Psycho T”? Raptors guard Lou Williams was leading the fast break and had big man Tyler Hansbrough trailing. Lou then made a nifty pass to Hansbrough and instead of gathering the ball and throwing it down with a vicious dunk… well… hmmm… just look at how he handled the situation. (slow clap) The post Ladies and gentlemen…Tyler Hansbrough appeared first on Crossover Chronicles.

Raptors battles vs top foes in both conferences highlight their February schedule

The Toronto Raptors are an interesting group, as it’s fairly debatable that we don’t even know who they are yet. Despite making their way through a whopping 21 games without star swingman DeMar DeRozan, the Raptors are still far atop the Atlantic division and are in the lead for the East’s second overall seed. With DeRozan back in the saddle, the Raptors should be even better...

Amir Johnson is an Unsung Hero

The Toronto Raptors have been one of the biggest surprises in the NBA. We all knew they were going to be good, but not this good. As expected, much attention is being lavished on players who have been carrying their offense.
