HoopsHype Toronto Raptors twitter
Que orgulloso me siento de leer mi twitter y sentir el apoyo de mi pais. Eso no tiene precio.. Ser Venezolano es lo mejor de mi vida.
DeRozan has stood in to take a charge against Cousins and Pekovic the past two games. Probably the last two guys one wants to collide with.
The word is, DeRozan wasn’t just yelling “WHAT” at the Wolves bench. My early f-bomb take was correct.
Wheels up.. ✈️
Some joking around at the expense of Chuck Hayes over losing a jump to Ricky Rubio.
Patrick Patterson said his elbow is feeling “a lot better."
Lowry named Russ Westbrook when asked by DeRozan which guards are better on boards. Wall other nominee
Good win!! Feels good to be back..
"When you're an all-star, you're growing up, your true self starts to come out a little bit,” Kyle Lowry said about DeMar DeRozan
Is Lowry the best rebounding guard in the NBA? "I think so," said DeRozan. "If he's not, he's up there... but I definitely think he is"
DeMar "Coming over the top like he has a 42-inch vertical or something. Thats just Kyle man, he's hungry for the ball every time it goes up"
DeMar on Lowry: "Just seeing him going in there, sometimes he comes out of nowhere and you see him snatch a ball out of a bigs hand"
Casey said he's happy to see the passion from DeMar, as long as it's controlled and channeled against other team, not against the officials
DeMar: I kind of got it from Greivis. When he hits a big shot he always shows off a little bit. Its the competitive level thats in all of us
DeMar on words for Wolves bench: "They got a little hyped when they made a couple of buckets. We like playing on the road, under duress"
Lowry on DeMar, showing emotion: "When you're an all-star, you're growing up, your true self starts to come out a little bit"
DeRozan had a wry smile when he talked about loving silencing opponents and road crowds.
“You know, they got a little hyped when they made a couple of buckets. We like playing on the road and playing under duress,” DeRozan said
No Patterson, no problem for team 15 deep. Impressive stuff. Lowry, DeRozan showed great leadership. Novak, Hayes tremendous veterans.
Target practice at the Target Center for Novak, Ross, DeRozan and the Raptors.
Raps will pick up win 35, go 9 gms over .500. Big game tmrw in BRK. Nets lost both Pierce/AK to injuries in win vs SAC tonight/KG didnt play
DeMar DeRozan’s all grown up and has grown into this all-star thing quite well.
Raptors have out-rebounded the Wolves 26-12 in the second half, including 10-4 on the offensive glass
The @raptors are +500 on the road. The last time the Raptors had 35 wins was 2009-10 that which was Chris Bosh's final season.
Raptors eclipse last season’s win total. Have won 18-of-19 against Minnesota.
DeMar with the dagger, then has some words for the Wolves bench. Been seeing more late-game, on-court emotion from him recently. Love it
DeRozan just turned to Wolves bench and screamed at them. Minny not happy, especially Adelman. Either said “WHAT” or F-BOMB
Post-season Kyle Lowry is going to be fun. All of the scowls.
Fifth career triple-double, second of the season for Kyle Lowry - 17 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists… and counting
Valanciunas has been a factor. Not scoring, but great work on the boards. Another team effort.
Lowry’s been a beast. Answers for everything and owning the boards. Second triple double of season, fifth of career
Kyle Lowry: pretty damn good.
Strangely Love has only 1 career triple-double (he's currently 1 assist shy of his 2nd). He leads NBA in 20+ pt, 10+ reb, 5+ ast games (19)
Shabazz can play
Love scores his eighth field goal. First time he’s hit more than seven against the Raptors in a regular season game.
Leaving Steve Novak is unadvisable at this point
In the absence of the injured Patterson, Hayes has done a nice job on D in 9 mins off the bench, Novak has drained all 4 of his 3s for 12pts
Raptors with 17-6 edge on glass in third, wiping out Minnesota’s advantage
Lowry had 5 boards in the 3rd, he has 8 on the night and is 2 shy of a triple-double (14 points, 10 assist)
Another productive 3rdQ for the Raps, holding the Wolves to 35% and out-rebounding them 17-6, 5-2 on offensive boards. They lead 83-76
Through three, Raptors up seven. Lowry two rebounds away from a triple double. Love needs an assist
Lowry's shot has been off, barely affecting his overall value to Raps b/c of how much he contributes in nearly every other facet of the game
Kevin Love’s outlet passes are a thing of beauty and Brewer’s the perfect leak out man
Fun to watch: Kevin Love, one of the best passing big men and Kyle Lowry, one of the best rebounding guards in the NBA
Steve Novak filling in nicely for Patterson on offence. Has drilled all three attempts from deep
Greivis is dripping with swag tonight
Neither team enjoying the work of the officials tonight. Lots of complaining
Love broke the Wolves record for most 3s made in a season, which is a lot less impressive upon hearing Rashad McCants held record previously
Now Ross picks up his 4th foul, joins DeMar on the bench. Won't see either until the 4thQ, 5:51 left in the 3rd
Lowry will pick up a T of his own before the night is out. Few things are as certain
Lowry working on his own T. Close twice in first half. Now just leaves ball on floor after another offensive foul call.
DeRozan picks up his 4th foul, less than 5 minutes into the third quarter, he's also charged with a tech. Salmons in for him
DeRozan picked up his fourth foul not even mid-way through the fourth. Then got a T
Crazy to think a clear top-5 overall player could be underrated, but… Kevin Love. His first-half line: 14 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists
Wolves 1sthalf advantages: +4 on glass, +8 on offensive boards, +8 in 2nd chance pts, +22 in paint, +9 in pts off turnovers, +5 in break pts
Raptors lead by 1 at the break. Three-ball saving them (7/12), they were annihilated in the paint/on the boards. Turnovers also a concern
Going out on a limb and predicting Kevin Love gets a triple-double tonight.
Chuck Hayes and Steve Novak are the opposite person in nearly every way possible
Raptors rank 10th on the season, giving up 10.7 offensive rebounds per game. Over last 16 they're surrendering 12.1 (26th in NBA)
