Wheels up to Toronto.. ✈️
Say what?! 5 minutes to go before the half ends and Kobe Bryant hasn't shot the ball! I am SHOCKED! I'd thought he'd attempt 38 already!
Lowry was pleased with James Johnson: "He stopped breaks, he finished breaks, he's a havoc out there. Even though he's ...under weather."
Despite another win, Kyle Lowry was not satisfied: "They just shot the ball well, we've got to find a way to shut somebody down."
Casey-ism: "When you get 22 & 21 from your second unit guards, that's big-time. As they say in Kentucky, you're cooking with gas with that"
Raptors win almost every game, celebrities in the locker room, Greivis Vasquez at a loss for words … it’s all happening!
I told DeMar they should get Ice Cube in as well. He liked the idea. Freaks me out a bit that he was 6 when Friday came out.
Four East teams have matched Raps 13-2 start since O5/06 ... 2 made East finals, 07-08 Celtics won it all, 08/09 Cs made second round.
Someone asked Valanciunas if he knew who Chris Tucker was: “We have television in Lithuania you know."
Of course, at this rate, Lou just might make it on his own.
If Raps bench keeps that up, they should get 12th spot on EC all-star team and get to play 4 minutes together both halves.
Chris Tucker hanging out in Raptors room afterward, buddies with Bayno and u know this man
Rush Hour's Chris Tucker is hanging out in the Raptors' locker room, chatting with players and coaches. Everyone wants a piece of the Raps
In terms of basketball, the Raptors win in yet another way. They good.
Thank you for all your love about the Vasquez tweet. It shall not be topped. My only regret is I used a hashtag.
The only quibble w/ Raps 13-2 start is their schedule luck has been incredible. But they have made the most of every break. Amazing.
Correction season high 13 assists for Lowry
Raps better step it up or they are going to spoil their point differential ...
Your 13-2 Raptors ladies & gents. 4-1 start on the road for the first time in team history, 6 straight wins for first time since 2009
13-2. We the Fourth trumped We the South
Season-high 126 points for the Raps.
DeRozan was excellent and Amir came through late, but the bench won the Raptors this game.
Dozens of fans streaming out. There were hundreds to start.
Amir flush gives the Raptors 124 points, matching their season-high from last week's rout of the Bucks. Still 46.7s left.
OK, will add a caveat, live that didn’t look like a flagrant at all. Didn’t see a replay because I’m working on story.
Raptors lead is 13, matching their largest of the game. They have 118 pts, approaching season-high (124 vs MIL) with 3:29 to go
The Raptors have …. stolen the game (in the last minute) *Caruso voice.*
That Teague swat on Lou's head looked a lot like Horford on TJ Ford a few years back
What a bad night for the refs. That’s a flagrant foul? Charles Oakley will show you a flagrant foul.
Raptors have hit 14-28 from three (50%), Hawks at 48% (10 makes). Bananas.
Some late-game PT for James Johnson. After playing 4 minutes in his return Monday he's up to 14 tonight. Moving better, guarding ATL bigs
Greivis just took a charge. Now would be the time to drop the mic and walk out.
Lou/Greivis: 36 points on 18 shots in 31 minutes
Fourth quarter- Greivis: 12 Hawks: 5
Scouting report must have said leave Vasquez open. He was shooting 33%, but that’s a bad call. Just nailed another three as Raptors up 10.
Chuck Hayes just got called for an offensive foul, but game-best +14, has given Raptors great minutes again.
Vasquez has scored the Raptors first 9 fourth-quarter points. Season-high 18 points in just 13 minutes. Raps back up 10.
Swaggy V swagging out tonight. One of Greivis' better games of the season.
Greivis Vasquez redemption game.
Lowry had 8 of his 14 in 3Q. So good at reading game situation - got others going in 1st half, took over in 3rd. Expect beast mode KL in 4th
Lou 3-ball gives Raptors a 3pt lead after 3Q. Those "when leading into the 4th" stats will be tested here. Hawks not going away
Almost another Lou Williams buzzer beater and two huge Patrick Patterson blocks in the quarter help Raptors to a 91-88 lead through three.
Sensing a potential choke slam coming in the near future, Casey wisely gets Lowry out of the game to cool down.
Lowry cares not for this officiating crew
It really is too bad so many good refs got old or sick at the same time.
Lowry gets hit on the head, no call, gets a technical. Refs again MLS quality.
Speed vs strength/vet savvy. Digging this Lowry/Schroder matchup.
All tied up. Nearly Kyle Lowry time - or maybe that time has arrived.
Horford has scored 10 of the Hawks' 16 third-quarter points. Hawks can beat you in so many ways. No shortage of weapons
Of course as I tweet that Amir grabbed a huge offensive board and put it back in.
Amir Johnson’s lack of rebounding a major concern. Has had 10 only once (in opener against Atlanta). One tonight, 3, 4, 2 previous 3.
Kyle Lowry seething at lack of foul call on either Ross layup or his rebound attempt. Having long chat.
I guess the picture wasn’t clear. Halftime was women in bikinis projected on the court as some dude sang something.
They do halftime a little bit differently here in Atlanta, apparently: http://t.co/fn56pz9Uen
Hawks at 58% from the field, 8-of-13 from three. Raps +10 on the break, they're also shooting 56%. DoRozan with 16, Ross/Lou 12
Two highest scoring teams in the East, through 24 minutes they haven't disappointed. Raps lead 64-61 at the break. Now, who wants to play D?
Raptors lead Hawks 64-61 at the half - we think.
Still no stats, but Ludacris is here, so there's that.
Luda in the house.
Amir steal, outlet to Lowry, alley-oop to JV. Lead back up to 9.
