HoopsHype Toronto Raptors twitter
Just received a rent increase notice, just before the holidays. Christmas arson?
Saliendo para Detroit.. Heading to Detroit...
Amir Johnson has been rounding into glue-guy form. Raps DRTG with him is 102.6, far lower than other 3 non-DeMar starters.
Two words.. Kwe Parker
Prior to last night, earliest date Raptors had ever reached 20 wins in a season was Jan. 11 (2001-02 season). Beat it by nearly four weeks.
My tweets/36 really skyrockets during periods of transcription.
I need to go see the movie Selma when it comes out .. looks like it's going to be a tough one to watch I'll have my tissue box ready
12 points on 11 FGA, of course, is not disastrous by any stretch. But anecdotally, JJ was more effective than Fields as primary defender.
When James Johnson was on the floor, Joe Johnson went 2-for-6 for 5 points last night. All other times: 6-for-11, 12 points. FYI.
No wonder he missed the scorer's table... http://t.co/k9NCIVA7yo
Last nights game though....
Good morning thanking God for another day
LRT: Anything that makes Mrs. Coach curse must be evil incarnate.
Casey said he’s never seen a young player work on his game every day as hard as Bruno Caboclo.
Writing pro tip: Don't write a story about James Johnson or Joe Johnson lest you want to refer to "James Johnson" and "Joe Johnson" a lot.
Patrick Patterson is shooting 60% from three in December (9 games), 58% from two-point range in that span.
From the comments: "One could do a lot worse than Drake."
The Manimal with the FINISH!
That concludes the second annual "it's not about Drake" Drake Night. 56 "regular" games to go. How boring.
Patterson: "That Game 7 was definitely on my mind from the time I woke up this morning to even now. It was a bit of revenge, in my eyes"
Valanciunas shot 6-for-7. I told him he missed one. “Pssh, shit happens."
Amir said he hasn’t watched tape of Game 7 again. Patterson said he thinks about it all the time. Including this morning.
105-89 Raps ... Lowry checks in with 6 mins to go and turns a 7pt game into a Bruno sighting. Raps get 40+ pts from bench, as usual.
Imagine what will happen at ACC if Bruno Caboclo eventually becomes ... An NBA player?
Alas, it was Drake Night, not Bruno Night. Raptors win 105-89, Patterson ruins Bruno’s assist.
'Topes win! 105-89. Lowry finished with 20 and 12.
2 years away from having a street named after him.
Patterson just missed a dunk, robbing Bruno of an assist on ESPN!
Bruno love is real. Gets cheered even when he inbounds ball.
Casey just had to point Bruno to middle of scorer's table to check in. Crowd goes crazy.
Standing ovation for Bruno.
Bruno and Drake slap hands as the rookie makes his way to the scorer's table. He'll make his 2nd NBA appearance. Couldn't script it better
Bruno chats with Drake, comes in game. Actually forgot to tell them he was checking in so had to wait.
Bruno coming in
If BRUNO sees even a second of court time the roof is coming off this building.
Stemma coming in as Bruno chant starts. “We want Bruno."
Mason Plumlee makes free throws look impossible. Amazing.
No Bruno chants yet.
Free pizza earned on Drake Night is pepperoni and tears.
Patterson in December: 41-for-70 (59%) FG, 22-for-37 (59%) 3P - double-digit scoring in 8 of 9 games.
Your 20 win Toronto Raptors. Five more and they will have more than they did in six of their previous seasons.
Confused as to how the ball is not just melting in Patrick Patterson's hands.
A loud "Brooklyn sucks" chant as Joe Johnson goes 0-for-3 on a trip to the line. Night all.
Again, Patrick Patterson has been the best Raptor not named Kyle Lowry this month. He's been crazy good.
Lowry shot attempts w/o DeRozan... first 4 games: 28, 21, 22, 18. Last 6: 13, 18, 10, 19, 12, 11 (tonight). Doing as much or more w/ less
James Johnson has been a quiet difference-maker tonight. What if he was around for last year's series? Who knows. But a real asset now.
James Johnson needs to do something exciting and then yell, “that’s why they brought me here."
Old, tired team is old, tired. Raps by 11.
Both of these teams should stop shooting.
Pierce is biggest name missing from last year's Nets, but no Livingston/Blatche/Thornton/AK is big. Raps 2nd unit annihilating Nets bench
Lou hits a three, takes a charge … Lou-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to F__ Brooklyn with
James Johnson just took an 18-footer early in the clock. Knows his role!
James Johnson has three points, but has been one of most influential Raptors on floor. Game-best +11. Solid minutes
James Johnson just forced Joe Johnson into a turnover. It was cathartic.
