Tim Bontemps

Kyle Lowry & Lionel Hollins hug on the way off the court, & then Greivis Vasquez runs over, hugs Hollins & throws his arm over his shoulder

Josh Lewenberg

Second hook shot for post-master general Greivis Vasquez

Josh Lewenberg

What if they send Greivis Vasquez to work with Hakeem this summer... The possibilities... Right?

Josh Lewenberg

Nice bounce-back game for Vasquez, who just hit a baby-hook, I think.

Eric Koreen

Greivis has his floater working. The Raps lost in transition, though.

Lenn Robbins

Very entertaining to hear a Canadian PA voice using a Spanish accent to introduce @Greivis Vasquez . #Nets up 30-22 after 1. #Raptors

Eric Koreen

Save for Vasquez and Ross, Raps have gotten significant contributions from everybody in this second half.

Ryan Wolstat

A disaster of a game from Vasquez, but his buddy James Johnson is bailing him out, along with Patrick Patterson.

Eric Koreen

Greivis gets a floater to fall, acknowledges the heavens.

Eric Koreen

The Orlando Magic's plan of Go At Greivis Vasquez has been effective.

Ryan Wolstat

Vasquez and James Johnson also have very good +/- numbers as reserves. Canadians Tristan Thompson, Sacre, Joseph also high on list.

Eric Koreen

From last night, on Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams, perpetually in heat-check mode: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/12/13/tor…

Ryan Wolstat

"We've just got a good team, it's not much to explain.” Greivis Vasquez on the 17-6 Raptors.

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson to Lou Williams for the 30-yard TD. Greivis Vasquez comes out to kick the extra point.

Candace Buckner

Now Greivis Vasquez out here blocking people...

Josh Lewenberg

Wasn't Greivis Vasquez in a slump, like 30 seconds ago? He's feeling it now - his 3-ball gives the Raps their largest lead at 15

Eric Koreen

More like Treyvis Vasquez.

Candace Buckner

After a missed three, #Raptors push down to the other end and Vasquez scores at the rim. TOR up 12 now and Vogel calls timeout

Eric Koreen

More like Crayvis Vasquez.

Ryan Wolstat

Greivis Vasquez is trolling us all.

Ryan Wolstat

The rare 1-for-6 heat check from Greivis Vasquez

Josh Lewenberg

Sigh of relief from Vasquez after he drills a 3-ball late in the shot clock - he was 0-for-5. Now 1-for-7 after missing on next play

Eric Smith

3.5 hrs before tip, greivisvasquez getting in some work. Lowry, Hansbrough, Bebe & Bruno too. #rtzinstagram.com/p/whXGF_o2w3/

Stefan Bondy

Andy Vasquez just arrived at Sergey Karasev's nickname: Sputnik. .....Cause he launched the Nets season.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors are saying Vasquez was limited with the flu tonight. Still sounds like decision to start Fields had more to do with LeBron matchup

Josh Lewenberg

With Vasquez sliding back to bench, Casey has his original second unit back. 5 reserves (w/ Chuck instead of Hansbrough) close out the 1st

Ryan Wolstat

Without DeRozan and Vasquez, Lowry looking for Valanciunas in pick-and-roll. Two dunks so far the result.

Josh Lewenberg

Was a bit surprised Casey went w/Vasquez as original replacement but always thought Fields more likely than Lou/JJ - prefers them w 2nd unit

Ryan Wolstat

While we chatted with Johnson pre-game, Landry, right beside him, had a sandwich. Gave nothing away about lineup change. Vasquez was upbeat

Josh Lewenberg

Fields starts in place of Vasquez tonight, will get first shot at LeBron assignment

Eric Smith

Fields gets the start tonight in CLE. He'll replace Vasquez. My GUESS: this is a spot start. #Raptors #RTZ #WeTheNorth @fan590.

Paul Jones

A change in the starting line up for #Raptors tonight as Landry Fields will start for Grevis Vasquez #rtz

Emiliano Carchia

VIDEO: KJ McDaniels' Spike Rejection On Vasquez Caused Fan Concussion sportando.com/en/usa/nba/144… http://t.co/eZBeQVZQDC

Rob Mahoney

Within: McDaniels said his block against Greivis Vasquez flew into the stands so hard it gave a fan a concussion: on.si.com/163OlHR

Chris Dempsey

Raptors will start: Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson, Jonas Valanciunas, Greivis Vasquez & the East Player of the Week, Kyle Lowry

Jason Kosmicki

OH-Ficial starting line ups Chandler/ Hickson/ Mozgov/ Afflalo/ Lawson...Ross/ Amir Johnson/ Valanciunas/ Vasquez/ Lowry

Michael Grange

In 83 regular season games since the Patrick Patterson/Greivis Vasquez/Chuck Hayes trade, the Raptors are 56-27.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said he hasn't considered swapping Vasquez and James Johnson. Greivis will continue to start with DeRozan out

Ryan Wolstat

Dwane Casey says hasn't strongly contemplated replacing Vasquez with James Johnson. Says not one guy but everyone making mistakes.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors have Vasquez on Kyrie, hiding Lowry on the ghost of Shawn Marion. Ross starts on LeBron, as expected.

Tom Liston

#Raptors James Johnson should be starting over Greivis Vasquez. Raptors have the offensive horsepower. Need to slow down Lebron. #RTZ

Mike Ganter

Casey on newly-minted starter Vasquez last night: "He’s kind of the head of the snake of the second unit and will proudly tell you that.

Eric Koreen

2) The Vasquez-Amir screen-roll is starting to looking like the Calderon-Amir screen-roll.

Michael Grange

What's not to like about Vasquez and Lowry as the interchangeable backcourt?

Josh Lewenberg

Only Raptor shooting below 50% is JV (3-of-7). Lowry/Vasquez are a combined 12-of-17 for 29 pts. Bench is 8-of-10 for 23 pts

Payal Doshi

Vasquez makes me smile! He is on fire shooting 6-9 from the field! #rtz

Mike Ganter

End of quarter Lou misses the three and the Raps settle for a 69-point half. They lead by 16. Lowry has 15, Greivis has 14.

Tony Jones

Who needs DeMar DeRozen when you have Greivis Vazquez

Josh Lewenberg

Casey on Greivis per-game: "He's kind of the head of the snake of the second unit. He's probably told you that" ... check.

Eric Smith

Vasquez has 14 PTS to lead all scorers. The #raptors are shooting 62.1% FG. Toronto leads the #Jazz 45-32 with 7:57 to go in Q2. #RTZ
