"I’m going to earn that throughout the year. I want to close games” Greivis + TV sked hijinks, Bebe, final cuts more: torontosun.com/2014/10/23/vas…

Ryan Wolstat

Greivis said the pressure is on the Raptors to meet high expectations “or else you guys (the media) are going to hit us hard."

Tim Chisholm

With Lowry, Williams and Vasquez all deserving of crunch-time minutes for various reasons/skills, someone is gonna get left out.

Tim Chisholm

It begins RT @Ryan Wolstat: Vasquez said he wants to be out there in crunch time, especially if he’s not a starter.

Ryan Wolstat

Vasquez said he wants to be out there in crunch time, especially if he's not a starter. Was best Raptor in clutch last year.

Eric Koreen

Vasquez, today: "I don’t really get along with exhibition games … as you can tell. I stink. I’m just ready for the real stuff.”

VÍDEO | Raptors 92 - Maccabi 85. El venezolano Greivis Vásquez se reivindica. baloncesto.as.com/videos/2014/10…

Josh Lewenberg

Fairly obvious observation: Greivis Vasquez doesn't seem enthused by the idea of losing to Maccabi Haifa. He has 5 of Raps' 7 pts in the 4th

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe block and a crafty lay-up/three-point play opportunity for Greivis Vasquez on the other end. Raptors largest lead, 45-31

Doug Smith

Bebe, Bruno, Greivis, Greg and Jordan. Latest Boy Band or current Raptors on the floor?

Eric Koreen

Greivis & Jordan & Bruno & Bebe & Greg.

67RIEFNS No. 26: More Kyle Lowry-Greivis Vasquez lineups dlvr.it/7HLKDt

Kendall Marshall

Beas, Tywon, Nolan, Greivis, KD, ABowie.. smfh

Josh Lewenberg

Opens door for Cherry RT @RaptorsMR Vasquez will sit out tonight for precautionary reasons. Was struck in the head by a ball at shootaround

Mike Ganter

No Greivis Vasquez tonight. He apparently was hit in the head with a basketball at shoortaround and was still a little light-headed.

Anthony Slater

Greivis Vasquez will not dress for Raptors tonight. Got hit in the head with a basketball at shootaround. #PreseasonInjuries

Ryan Wolstat

Bradley makes himself Public Enemy No. 1 amongst writers, tying this meaningless game w/ 8.1 seconds remaining. No DD no KL, Greivis shoots?

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez starts the second half in place of Lowry (rest). Lowry's night is likely done after playing 9 minutes in the first half (7pts, 3reb)

Ryan Wolstat

Vasquez had a terrible first half. Picked up stats and cursed. He’ll get a chance to do better now.

Ryan Wolstat

Looks like Kyle Lowry’s night is done. Greivis starts second half, Lowry chilling (literally) with ice (don’t panic, most players do this)

Ryan Wolstat

Ex-Maryland star Greivis Vasquez wasn’t pleased to hear the Orioles got swept.

Chip Crain

Through the Looking Glass: Greivis for Quincy wp.me/p23eba-4Vm

Josh Lewenberg

Ross finally gets one to fall from the corner. He and Vasquez are a combined 1/14 from the field, 1/10 from 3pt range

Antonio Gil

Hoy ha sido uno de los mejores pre-games de mi 'carrera' NBA: José Manuel Calderón, Lucas Nogueira y Greivis Vásquez. Tres grandes.

Ryan Wolstat

Psycho 3, Tyler Hansbrough starts, alongside Greivis Vasquez, Amir, DeRozan and Ross

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis Vasquez on his friend/high school teammate KD: "It's very tough. I'm praying for him & hopefully he comes back even stronger"

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors players hearing about KD injury for the first time as practice lets out. All of them shocked. "I'm praying for him"- Greivis Vasquez

A. Sherrod Blakely

C's up 93-87 after 3Q. #Celtics: Bradley 22 pts. Thornton 12 pts. #Raptors: DeRozan 18 pts. Vasquez 13 pts, 4 asts. #Celticstalk

Eric Smith

Vasquez with back to back 3-balls for the #Raptors. TOR now trails the #Celtics 82-80. Q3, 3:50. Hear it on @fan590. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Impressive sequence w/ DeRozan passing out of a triple team in the lane to find Vasquez for open 3. Wouldn't have made that play 2 yrs ago

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said he's not afraid to use Greivis/Lou together despite defensive shortcomings. Experimenting w/ it here as Celts start Q on 16-7 run

Josh Lewenberg

Should see more Bruno tonight after he played 15mins in his debut Tues. Casey wants to see him paired with Vasquez and the 2nd unit

Tas Melas

Disappointed the jersey Greivis Vasquez is wearing in 2002 isn't a Garbajosa. I don't care that it's pre-Garbo in TO: http://t.co/lpf2WcsI44

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno also burned his fellow Brazilian Bebe. Said he isn’t much help teaching Bruno English. Said Greivis helps a lot more.

Ailene Voisin

Before Kings-Raps preseason game, Greivis Vasquez said he still feels badly that he wasn't healthy during his time last year with Kings.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez's passing and pick&roll game has been masterful tonight

Jason Jones

Raptors have three former Kings on the floor: Greivis Vasquez, Chuck Hayes and James Johnson

Eric Smith

With Patterson out today, we're getting a look at a #Raptors 2nd unit of Vasquez, Hansbrough, J. Johnson, Williams & Stiemsma. #RTZ
