Possibly spending too much time at the blog writing about the Landry Fields free throw putback jam.
Valanciunas bellowing in the locker room last night … “Caboooooocloooooo"
Landry Fields is trending in Toronto. That is all.
Good luck to all my Wisconsin deer hunting buddies. Be safe and find da turdy pointer!
Boo boo, you're sounding salty
Yep today was very eventful. Glad to be home & in my bed.
Wheels down in Cleveland..
This backstage pass show on CBC featuring Sloan in pretty cool, to me.
Bebe said he told his teammates that when he gets unleashed he'll start hitting threes. He can do it too, makes them easily in practice.
After that clinic, not surprisingly, Raptors now trail only Dallas in offensive rating.
How is everybody's comedown going?
Memphis leads the NBA at 11-2. Raptors next at 10-2 (and beat Memphis on Wednesday).

That last quote was peak Greivis. Swaggy V is so apt.
Swaggy V Vasquez on jumper being off: "It's not a really big concern. I get in the gym I get better and I hit the big shots when I need to."
In Maine for his debut and tonight, Bruno said he was not comfortable. Certainly looked at home on the court though.
JV on manhandling Bucks bigs: “You know, trying to do that every night. That’s what I need. That’s how I can be productive on the court."
"Lack of fear? Is that what you call it? That’s one thing about Bruno: He’s not afraid of anything. He’s a tough kid.” Casey
"Yeah, yeah. I put my head down. It was pretty emotional.” Bruno on the fans chanting for him in the third quarter.
How crazy would it be if East ends up Bulls, Raptors/Wizards with Cavs in fourth? I know it’s still early, but it’s possible.
“He wasn’t nervous,” I said to Valanciunas re: Bruno. “He WAS nervous,” JV replied. “That’s what he needs to do if he wants to stay here."
LeBron has won 16 straight meetings vs Raps, 1 shy of Nash's record of 17 consecutive victories vs Toronto. He's 32-7 against them overall
What lies ahead? Raptors haven't defeated LeBron since Nov 28, 2009, haven't bested him on the road since Apr 6, 2004 - his rookie year
Several Raptors stunned to hear Cavs 5-6. Expecting an extremely tough game tomorrow.
“You play one game and you get this?” Jokes DeRozan to Bruno. Lou Williams took a picture of Bruno’s media scrum.
Casey mentioned he'd like to dress all 15 players each night in case of a night like this.
Bebe: "Bruno is like Justin bieber."
Asked Bruno if it was possible for his parents to see game in Brazil but he said no. He will show them a tape when they visit at Xmas.
"Bruno's like Justin Bieber, they love him" - Bebe
With a big smile on his face, Bruno says he had butterflies in his stomach but had fun in his debut
Bruno: "I felt butterflies in my stomach. ... It was incredible."
Bruno on hearing the crowd chant his name: "I just put my head down, it was emotional"
Bruno said he had butterflies. Couldn't believe the crowd. When they were chanting for him he said he just put his head down sheepishly.
Lou chanting "Bruno" in Raps locker room. Takes picture of the media hoard around him on his phone
Lou Williams and Ray Chow chanting "Bruno" in locker room
"Bruno isn't afraid of anything. It's just a matter of time." - Dwane Casey. Compares hiim to Rashard Lewis
Casey doesn't expect to have James Johnson tomorrow in Cleveland, but says he's making progress
'I thought it was good, it was special' - Casey on crowd reax to Caboclo.
Casey on Bruno: "The kid's a beautiful kid"
Casey: "We thought it was going to be a tough battle". About that...
41-point win is 1 shy of matching largest margin of victory in franchise history. They led by 52 in the 4th - their largest lead ever
Raptors cap of their 7-game home stand with a 41-point win over the Bucks. Raps home stand: 6-1, +111 pt differential (+15.9 per game)
That was fun.
'Topes win 124-83. Bruno finishes with eight points and infinite spirit points.
It's amazing, sometimes, to think the Leafs and Raptors share the same building/owner/city.
Every Raptor has scored.
Every legend starts somewhere: Live and Let Fly, the Bruno Caboclo Story.
Fittingly, "Can't touch this" plays during the timeout. Raps up 44, 2:05 left
Cavs getting drilled by Washington. Raptors will be rested. Tomorrow will be interesting.
Fans are leaving. They do not deserve a salute.
Milwaukee led by one at some point. Toronto led by as many as 52. There were two lead changes.
Bebe alley-oop. No more all caps. This is the new norm.
"Let's go Bruno" chants. Creative bunch.
Now a "Let's Go Bruno" chant has erupted.
If Bruno big times me post-game I will understand. He is big time.
Now is Bruno’s time to tell us to get the hell away from him.
Bruno: 8pts in 8 mins. DeMar 7 pts in 28 mins. I think this is sustainable because I believe in the power of Caboclo.
Biggest takeaway from Bruno's first 6 minutes of NBA action, same thing we saw in pre-season/summer league: No fear. That'll go a long way
Bruno “The elongated microwave” Caboclo.
Casey has been suppressing Bruno. I don't feel like I can trust him any longer.
This place is going Bru-NUTS. (sorry)
Bruno with a 3 in Ersan's grill.
Raptors bingo card now full. Thanks for playing.
Landry Fields with a put-back jam off a free throw. There are now no things left to happen.
Now Landry Fields just did the Michael Jordan run-in off missed free throw jam. I can’t even.
We the Landry
Bebe is really good at rolling to the rim.
