Eric Smith

The #raptors go to q4 with an 86-71 lead over atlanta. Largest lead of the night for Toronto. #rtz

Jason Walker

Hawks / Raptors: where everything is either a Toronto offensive rebound, a Hawk personal foul or a shot of Coach Bud upset.

Tom Liston

#Raptors @DeMar DeRozan with 12 / 9 / 3 and 6 steals, +13. #Prove'em #RTZ

Eric Smith

Hustle and flow from Amir Johnson tonight. 16 and 10. #rtz #raptors up 80-67 late 3rd

Jason Walker

Just tuned in for first part of the third - defensive rebounding still a problem and the Raptors look twice as big as ATL - could be me

Ryan Wolstat

Hawks on shaky ground here. Raptors bench can put them away with a big push when they come in.

Ryan Wolstat

True about nearly every team, but what a fit Kyle Korver would be on the Raptors. He’s ridiculous. Bulls screwed up.

Ryan Wolstat

Can the Raptors add a third banner this season? We'll find out in April http://t.co/4ARbrsHDhI

Ryan Wolstat

By the way was joking about “contract year Amir.” This is who he is when healthy. Spent two seasons as best overall Raptors pre-last year.

Eric Smith

The #raptors go into the half with a 60-52 lead on Atlanta. Big 1st half for Amir Johnson: 12 pts, 7 reb. #rtz

Eric Koreen

60-52 at the half for the Raptors.

Eric Smith

Quiiiick 7-0 run. #rtz #raptors up 58-50 with 1:27 to go til half

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors 5-for-8 from three in second after going 2-for-7 in first quarter. Lead 58-50

Eric Smith

Another 3pt for atlanta. They're 8/12 now. Toronto once up 10 now leads 51-50. 2:23 til half. #rtz #raptors

Jon Krawczynski

Had to be a cool moment for Wiggins going at it with Vince Carter, the Raptors star when he was a boy

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors' NBA rank in fouls committed over last 3 years: 2nd, 1st, 1st. They've been whistled for 10 midway through the 2ndQ tonight

Eric Smith

6:04 til half Valanciunas picks up foul no. 3. #rtz #raptors up 43-35. JV 7 pts, 4 reb

Eric Smith

The #raptors have their largest lead of the night. 38-28.

Doug Smith

Sure, they pay homage to Drake at @Toronto Raptors games but who's got the banner? Bon Jovi has the banner, that's who has the banner!

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors up on the Hawks 24-22 after 1Q. Out-rebounding ATL 15-10, which will please Casey. Amir/DeRozan lead all scorers w/ 6 apiece

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors lead 24-22 after a quarter. Neither team shooting well. Raptors listening to wishes of Casey, doing fine work on boards.

Eric Smith

#raptors lead at the end of 1 QRT 24-22. #rtz

Jaryd Wilson

We're off and running in 2014-15! Raptors lead 24-22 after 1. Mike Scott's 5 lead the way.

Eric Smith

Toronto responds to Atlanta's 7-2 run with a 6-0 run of their own. #rtz #raptors up 19-13. Q1. 3:45

Eric Smith

7-2 Atlanta run. Tied at 13. #rtz #raptors

Ryan Wolstat

This will likely be a game where Raptors will need big games from Ross/Valanciunas/Lowry. DeRozan struggles against these defenders.

Eric Smith

5:28 to go in Q1 #raptors lead 13-10. #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors were one of most foul-prone teams in league last year and it’s happening again so far.

Josh Lewenberg

5 Raptors' FGs, all 5 starters have scored. Early 11-5 lead for Toronto.

Ryan Wolstat

The king of the mid-range game, DeMar DeRozan, scores the first bucket of the year after Raptors force a 24-second violation.

Eric Smith
