Ryan Wolstat

Called for Patterson for Amir and Johnson for Ross or Vasquez long ago. Nice to see the Raptors finally trying it.

Eric Smith

TOR only 4/11 FG in Q4. #Mavericks had the lead up to 12. Vasquez 3PT cuts it to 9. Q4, 3:35 to play, #raptors down 97-88. #RTZ

Earl K. Sneed

Vasquez for three, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout with a 97-88 lead and 3:35 left to hang on. #DALvsTOR

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk for three, but Vasquez answers with a triple of his own to keep the Raptors within two. #DALvsTOR

Earl K. Sneed

Vasquez for three, and the Raptors have converted the @Dallas Mavericks' nine turnovers into 13 pts. #DALvsTOR

Mike Ganter

Greivis and Lou having a good chuckle as Vasquez enters game to boos from his former fans.

John Reid

Former Pelicans guard Greivis Vasquez has just entered for Toronto. Hears a few cheers.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez 3-ball gives the Raptors 76 points in the dying seconds, narrowly avoiding season-low of 75

Josh Lewenberg

If Lou can't go, expect his minutes (25) to be dispersed between JJ, Vasquez, Ross or Raps could go 'hot hand' approach with those 3

Eric Koreen

Greivis Vasquez just stayed in front of Teague as he gave him like eight killer moves. Impressive, unlikely.

Rashad Mobley

Greivis with the unsuccessful reach around. .

Eric Koreen

Debatable offensive foul called on Vasquez, but little use in dribbling out the first 16 seconds of a possession before making move.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors going small with Vasquez/Lou/Ross/JJ/Pat to start the 4th. Rebounding has been/may continue to be an issue, Wiz with a 41-30 edge

Michael Grange

Watching Andre Miller and Grievis Vasquez guard each other like watching basketball played in deep sand.

Josh Lewenberg

Worst outing of the season for Raptors bench. Only Patterson has made an impact. Awful night for Ross, little-to-nothing from Lou/Vasquez

Paul Garcia

3:28 left in 2Q, Spurs lead 44-37 over TOR. PG battles. Lowry: 8 pts, 2 ast Parker: 0 pts, 0 ast Vasquez: 3 pts, 0 ast Joseph: 4 pts, 1 ast

Ryan Wolstat

Conspiracy over. James Johnson starting for Vasquez.

Josh Lewenberg

Rejoice RT @RaptorsMR James Johnson moves into the starting lineup in place of Greivis Vasquez tonight vs. San Antonio. #raptors #rtz

Eric Koreen

Via @RaptorsMR, James Johnson starts in place of Greivis Vasquez.

Tom Liston

#Raptors Thanks Dwane RT @RaptorsMR "James Johnson moves into the starting lineup in place of Greivis Vasquez tonight vs. San Antonio. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

One way or another, most would agree JJ deserves to play. Moving Vasquez back to bench (inevitable) will free up some mins on the wing

Josh Lewenberg

Ross starts second half in place of Vasquez

Ryan Wolstat

Ross starts second half for Vasquez.

Eric Smith

Ross begins the 2nd half with DD, Lowry, Amir and JV. Vasquez will come off the bench. TOR trailing LAC 59-57 as the 2nd halfl begins #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Terrence Ross will start for Greivis Vasquez in the second half.

Tim Chisholm

What I want to know is will casey go with Vasquez in the first five after halftime, or will he bench him for Ross?

Tom Liston

#Raptors Yep: ow.ly/IE59n RT @Ryan Wolstat The Greivis Vasquez as starter experiment has long since passed its best before date.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez and Amir get the quick hook as Lou and Patterson enter just over 3 minutes into the game. Raps down 15-2

Eric Smith

3:14 in ... Patterson and Williams are in for Johnson and Vasquez.

Ryan Wolstat

The Greivis Vasquez as starter experiment has long since passed its best before date.

Eric Koreen

Well, it's 11-2 Clippers early. This might be the death knell for Vasquez in the starting lineup.

Eric Smith

James Johnson is back in the line up. Starters the same for the #Raptors though. DD, JV, A. Johnson, Lowry, Vasquez. #RTZ #Clippers

Josh Lewenberg

Sounds like Casey will stick with current starters (Vasquez with first unit, Ross off bench), at least for tonight

Alejandro Perez

En los J.Panamericanos participarán 6 de los primeros 25 equipos del ranking FIBA, lo que asegura buen nivel. Vasquez jugará con Venezuela.

Josh Lewenberg

It's the (cleanly-shaven) Greivis face!

Jake Fischer

Switching over to Raptors-Bucks, I had no idea Jorge Gutierrez and Greivis Vasquez were identical twins.

Charles F. Gardner

Patterson and Vasquez sink 3-pointers to spark 8-0 Raptors run and Bucks lead down to 75-68.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez triple cuts the Bucks lead to 7 with 8:24 left. Raptors have outscored Milwaukee 8-2 to start the Q

Charles F. Gardner

Now Lou Williams in for Vasquez.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks killer Greivis Vasquez starting to go to work. Watch out.

Eric Koreen

Let it not be said that Greivis won't take (and make ) a PU3IT with his team down 13.

Payal Doshi

He looks younger when he shaves the beard. MT @talkhoops: Vasquez either needs to be beardier or get a shorter haircut. It’s throwing me off

Jorge Castillo

Raptors lead 65-50 at half. Wall = 15p, 6a, 4r. Beal = 11p. Wizards = 11 turnovers. Vasquez = 12p, Lowry = 11p. Raptors shooting 57.1%.

Jorge Castillo

Nene called for the tech. He joins Wittman, DeRozan, and Vasquez.

Josh Lewenberg

Big half for Greivis, the former Maryland star. Shooting 4-of-4 for a team-leading 12 pts & just took a charge. 42-30 Raps, biggest lead

Payal Doshi

Vasquez anticipates the defender and he takes the charge! Good things happen when you come back to your old stomping grounds!

Jorge Castillo

Raptors lead 33-30 after 1Q. Beal = 8p. Wall = 6p, 4a, 2r. Lowry = 9p, Vasquez = 8p, Patterson = 6p. Wizards shooting 68.8%, Raptors 68.4.

Jorge Castillo

Wonder if Wizards are going to have the Montrose Christian freshman team play at halftime in honor of Greivis Vasquez. He has 8 pts in 9 min

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry opens on Beal, Vasquez on Wall.
