SporthSouth will televise the April 8 Hornets-Raptors game that ESPN dropped from its schedule.
DeRozan on Raptors recent slump: "Any great movie wouldn't be good if it didn't have no thrills or drama in it. You wouldn't wanna watch it"
I credit Raptors fans… they’re as passionate as Heat fans. The only difference is Toronto fans aren’t as blinded by their team colors.
What's crazy is someone is actually going to win that Raptors vs. Wizards 1st-round matchup. One of those teams is going to the conf semis…
DeMar DeRozan had 42 in Raptors win vs Rockets, still 2nd to Brock Lesnar for biggest individual performance on TV tonight.
Rockets lose to Raptors, Grizzlies knock off Kings, Grizzlies back to 2nd seed by a half game.
Respective fanbase reactions to games from tonight are terrific bizarro-world versions of each other: Lakers-Sixers and Rockets-Raptors.
That was only the Raptors 4th win when trailing after three quarters this season. They had 11 last year.
James Harden scored 31 points in the loss to the Raptors tonight. Harden has now scored 30 or more points in 32 games, which leads the NBA.
Thank you Raptors! Oh Canada
First time the Raptors have defeated a winning team since Feb 20 (10 straight losses). They won't face another until the playoffs.
Ariza could not get a clean look on his first 3. Smith gave him another shot, but Ariza's 3 at buzzer misses. Raptors 99, Rockets 96.
Raptors move within one game of the Bulls for the 3 seed.
James Johnson checks Harden on final possession, denies him the ball forcing Ariza to launch a couple tough ones. Raptors WIN
FINAL: Raptors 99, Rockets 96. Tough call on the timeout, but Rockets missed two three chances for the tie.
Raptors win. Feels a bit like a turning point. We’ll see.
42 pts, 11 rebounds for DeMar DeRozan, who just hit a monster ISO pull-up jumper to put the Raptors up 3 on Houston.
What a game at the ACC! The Raptors looking to close out the homstand with a win. DeMar with ties a career-high in pts & rebs w/40 & 11.
Demar DeRozan not helping Grizzlies. Missed 2 free throws with 45 secs left against Houston. Raptors lead by 1
This has been 1 of the most entertaining Raptors games of the season, certainly of 2015. DeRozan/Harden battle alone is worth $ of admission
Raptors/ Rockets great game!
Right now I'd say the Rockets did better getting unknown Cllint Capela at No.25 than Raptors did getting unknown Bruno Caboclo at No.20.
Meanwhile, DeRozan had 13 of his game-high 30 points in the 3rd. Raptors trail by 2 going into the 4th. They have 15 turnovers.
Raptors led by seven and looked like ready to blow it open, but Rockets scored final 9 pts of 3rd, 7 by Harden, to lead 76-74 after 3.
DeRozan has 5 of the Raptors' 12 turnovers. That matches his season-high.
DeRozan’s inability to stretch the floor forces Raptors to give Ross dozens of chances even though Johnson is the far better player.
DeMar DeRozan (made) fast-break slam cuts Raptors deficit to 3. 3:17 remaining in the half.
FWIW, heard Raptors had Capela pretty high on draft board (not Bruno or Ennis high but higher than guys like Hood and McDaniels).
Josh Smith keeping the Raptors in this game by being Josh Smith.
