Vasquez's awesome silver sneakers are inversely proportional to that terrible flop he just had on D

Dave McMenamin

The Cavs' once 18-pt lead is down to 7 with Vasquez going to the line for 2.

Raptors blog with more on Bruno Caboclo, Bebe, Landry Fields! and peak Greivis Vasquez quotes (+ a poll): blogs.canoe.ca/courtside/bask…

Ryan Wolstat

That last quote was peak Greivis. Swaggy V is so apt.

Ryan Wolstat

Swaggy V Vasquez on jumper being off: "It's not a really big concern. I get in the gym I get better and I hit the big shots when I need to."

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis dunked, DeMar was held without a FG and the Raptors are up 71-45 on the NBA's 4th-best defensive team at the half. Makes sense.

Charles F. Gardner

John Henson made a handoff - right to Greivis Vasquez, who said thanks and drove for an uncontested hoop. Raptors now up 57-32.

Michael Grange

That Vasquez dunk and his bench fly by was hilarious ...

Josh Lewenberg

Did Greivis just dunk?!?

Josh Lewenberg

Good (6) minutes from Hayes, JV re-enters. Vasquez and the starters (sans Ross) on the floor. May be best stretch of the season for Greivis

Eric Koreen

Vasquez is playing excellent. Amazing pass to a cutting Lowry for 2 FTs.

Josh Lewenberg

Raps' second unit has been excellent on D. Vasquez hitting shots, Lou doing his thing. Largest lead for Toronto, 48-30, 8:27 left in half

Eric Koreen

We're getting, arguably, the best Vasquez minutes of the year right now. Raps have missed a few bunnies to rob him of some dimes.

Kendall Marshall

Greivis played in Cole Field House right?

Ryan Wolstat

Greivis Vasquez recognizes Toronto’s low assist numbers are a concern but, “we’re 9-2, why would we change everything? We’ll get better."

Ryan Wolstat

Mistakes happen, but an out of bounds behind Raptors bucket should have been Raptors ball, DeRozan was fouled, jump ball not foul on Greivis

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors going real small to start the 4th: Vasquez/Lou/Ross/DeRozan/Pat. Gasol is set to check back in for Memphis, Z-Bo still on bench

Josh Lewenberg

Rough night for Vasquez and Ross - combined 2-for-12 from the field.

Eric Koreen

A few people have pointed to Vasquez's final year with the Hornets, which is true. He was good there.

Eric Koreen

Bench unit has been FINE, but Vasquez and Patterson have both been shaky in different ways to start year. They're interesting b/c they ...

Josh Lewenberg

After missing his first two jumpers, Carter has hit two in a row, both over Greivis Vasquez.

Eric Koreen

Vasquez has not hit rim with first 3 shots: air-ball 3, banked-in 3, misses floater off of glass only.

Eric Smith

Vasquez with the windex job at the end of Q1...hits the 3PT off glass and in. #Raptors up 22-20 as we head to Q2. #RTZ #Grizzlies @fan590

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis Vasquez banks in a 3-ball at the 1stQ buzzer, giving the Raps a 22-20 lead. DeRozan leads all scorers with 8 points

Ryan Wolstat

Meanwhile, in actual hoops action, Grievis Vasquez banks in a three Larry Johnson style at the buzzer to give Raptors 22-20 lead after one.

Mike Ganter

Raps up 22-21 after one as Greivis banks in a three at the buzzer.

Eric Koreen

Vasquez banks in a 3 at end of q. His first shot was an air-ball, so he isn't, like, ON. 22-20 Raps after 1.

Ryan Ward

Notable players taken after Xavier Henry: Eric Bledsoe (18), Avery Bradley (19), Greivis Vasquez (28) and Lance Stephenson (40)

Eric Koreen

Fields will play some in Johnson's absence, but I'd bet on role expansions for DeRozan, Ross and Vasquez.

Eric Smith

Big bomb from the death star.....from general greivis. #raptors go up 89-83 on the #jazz following the Vasquez 3pt. 6:22 left. #rtz

Kaan Kural

Greivis Vasquez favori oyuncularım listesinde hızla yükseliyor. Chazz Palminteri gibi adam. Önemi/değeri sınırlı ama nefis yan rol.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez entered the game shooting 7-for-34 (21%) from 3pt range. He's hit both of his 3PA tonight. Last one was big. 89-83 Raps, 6:22 left

Eric Koreen

Vasquez 3 in transition. Hell of a play by James Johnson to push it. #hellofaplaybyjamesjohnson

Aaron Falk

Ingles missed a 3 that would have tied it up, then Vasquez sinks one. Big swing for a second-unit that has kept the Jazz in this so far.

Eric Koreen

Greivis Vasquez hits a 3, draws a charge. He needed those.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan re-enters for Vasquez. Lou to play the point. Raps down 3 midway through the 2ndQ

Jonathan Rinehart

Per Raptors PR: both Landry Fields (flu-like symptoms) and Greivis Vasquez WILL DRESS tonight for Toronto.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez (knee) will play tonight vs Utah. Fields (flu) is also available.

Doug Smith

Sound the alert! The bruised -- or contused -- Greivis Vasquez goes for #Raptors tonight, as does the flu-like symptom-ridden Landry Fields

Eric Smith

Vasquez knee (contusion) will play. #rtz #raptors #WeTheNorth

Eric Koreen

Grievous Vasquez (knee contusion) will play vs. Jazz

Josh Lewenberg

If Vasquez can't go, Lowry should see a bump in PT with Lou Williams getting minutes as the back-up point guard.

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis Vasquez is questionable tonight vs Utah with a right knee contusion. Raptors will see how he feels pre-game before making a call

Brendan Bowers

Great pass by Vasquez on that finish. Raptors looking tough against Bulls

Payal Doshi

Wow Vasquez with the no-look pass to JJ! #rtz #nowords

Ryan Wolstat

White Squad taking over. James Johnson, Greivis, Patterson, Lou Williams, Hansbrough taking it to Bulls.

Eric Koreen

Greivis just tried to dunk. Didn't end well.

Kaan Kural

Greivis Vasquez hangi tempoda olursa olsun hep iskele çekilirken vapura yetişmeye çalışan adam havasında koşuyor. Çoacaip

Paul Jones

At @mattamyac with @Greivis Vasquez & HOFer Bill Walton in town for an event tomorrow. #ballislife.… instagram.com/p/vUoZ0UyNBt/

Ryan Wolstat

One more weird stat: Greivis Vasquez is shooting 32%, yet team has been good with him on floor. He’s second on team in d-rating. Bizarre
