Ryan Wolstat

“Shout out to those guys for paying attention in shootaround and paying attention to detail with gameplan” I love Tony Allen (on Gasol/Z-Bo)

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry: "I know Canadian fans did a great job of voting for me & I appreciate them. Hopefully they did their job & something special happens"

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry on possibility of being named AllStar starter tmrw "Honestly I wouldnt even know what to say. Id be shocked. Not really banking on it"

Ryan Wolstat

"I know CDN fans did a great job of voting for me and I appreciate them Hopefully they did their job and something special happens from it"

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry on finger: "It hurts really bad. But no excuses. I'm not going to complain about it. I'm going to go out there & do my job as always"

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry thanked Canada for their support and said he hoped for the best as far as being all-star starter.

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan said it’s the team-wide shooting woes, as well as his struggles to get back from injury that have him frustrated.

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry gave. DeRozan some words of encouragement, but he isn't really in mood for encouragement.

Ryan Wolstat

Have rarely seen DeRozan as upset as he is right now post-game. Just staring into space and at the floor looking for answers

Eric Smith

Good night from Graceland. Talk to ya in Philly

Eric Smith

Look around the league. Many are struggling. Wanna admit it or not, Jan is traditionally when a lot of funks happen. TOR must battle out

Payal Doshi

A positive @raptors take away is that they finished with a season-high 21 offensive rebounds. #grind #toughness

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors have won 3 quarters over the last 4 games

Tim Chisholm

I am in total agreement that it's Dwane Casey's fault that the team's offence kept getting wide-open shots that didn't fall #hedidntshootem

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors score a season-low 86 pts in tonight's loss. They've been held under 100 in 4 straight games for first time since Nov of LAST season

Eric Smith

Raps had their chances. Their D was solid. They battled on the road. But their offence let em down. Tons of open looks missed. MEM 92-86

Michael Grange

Is Zach Randolph the most under-appreciated player in the NBA?

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors from 3 over last 4 games: 23-for-99 (23%). They've 4-for-25 (16%) tonight

Ryan Wolstat

Fans giving it to Lowry for a “cheap shot” on Gasol. Casey and Lowry stare daggers at the fan.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors season-low for points in a game is 89 vs ATL last week. They'll set a new mark tonight. Have scored 73 with 1:27 left

Ryan Wolstat

Maybe could have used Chuck Hayes on Z-Bo, but can’t quibble with anything else besides insane love of the three-point shot this team has.

Josh Lewenberg

Grizz pulling away in final minutes. Raptors showed a lot of fight against a quality opponent tonight but hard to win games w/o breaking 80

Eric Koreen

Lowry, Vasquez, DeRozan, Ross, Williams: 14-for-53. Problematic.

Ryan Wolstat

Grizz built for playoffs, going to be one tough out, even against stellar offensive squads like Warriors or Thunder.

Ryan Wolstat

First three of the night for Memphis comes from Mike Conley with two minutes remaining. Dagger-esque.

Ryan Wolstat

Casey arguing, ref Gary Zielinski says: “You weren’t even looking there, you were looking over here."

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry had made 1 of 22 three-point attempts over 3+ games, missing his first 4 tonight, before hitting his last 2. Raps within 4, 2:53 left

Eric Koreen

Feels like a moral victory coming up, which is a lot better than moral and actual defeats of past few weeks.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan's not himself right now. Playing hard but just doesnt have it. Wonder if Casey sticks w/ him after pulling him in crunch time Monday

Eric Koreen

And it reminds me of this story from earlier in the season: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/11/20/tor…

Ryan Wolstat

Tough call for Casey. DeRozan was all-star and top scorer, but huge negative with ball right now. Take him out or let him fight through?

Eric Koreen

Fourth quarter minutes against Marc Gasol for JV. This is good.

Eric Koreen

Even the shots that are going in are touching every part of the rim.

Payal Doshi

#CanadianWatch He’s got game! RT @Dwain Price: Nice move by Powell. Give that man some minutes.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors on the ropes. Just 2-for-21 from three, continuing a trend of horrawfulness.

Josh Lewenberg

8-0 Grizzlies run to start the 4th, which, in a game like this, could be the difference

Eric Smith

The #Raptors go to q4 with a 61-60 lead on Memphis. Grimy game. All about the D. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Through 36 mins, Raps are beating the Grizz at their own game. They've matched Memphis' trademark physicality & then some. 1pt lead into 4th

Ryan Wolstat

The Raptors can’t shoot, but playing their asses off tonight against very good opponent that isn’t in peak form either.

Eric Smith

TOR goes to Q4 with a 61-60 lead. Grimy game. All about the D. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

Everybody in this building except the media is furious with the referees. This is kind of amusing, actually.

Payal Doshi

Patrick Patterson is flying high on the offensive glass tonight. @rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry is 3-of-4 in the paint tonight, 1-of-10 everywhere else

Ryan Wolstat

Not sure what’s gotten into Patterson, but the historically poor rebounder has been fantastic past week or two on boards.

Ryan Wolstat

Thought Lowry would get a T for jawing at Koufos at layup, but just a delay of game warning.

Josh Lewenberg

Another gritty performance from Lowry. Dislocated/relocated finger. Shots still not falling. Playing his tail off. Rebounding, defending

Ryan Wolstat

Grizz and Raptors players have no clue how or why the calls are being made the way they are.

Ryan Wolstat

The refs have butchered this game. Didn’t define how they’d call things early. Result is players on both teams chirping them all game.

Ryan Wolstat

To be fair, Mozgov does everything else better besides that.

Eric Koreen

The type of game where a 4-0 run seems monumental.

Ryan Wolstat

Koufos has made three excellent plays guarding the rim in a row now. That’s why Cavs were after him. Far better at it than Mozgov.

Ryan Wolstat

Kosta Koufos, one of league’s best rim protectors, blocked Valanciunas inside. Valanciunas needs to work on his lift.

Josh Lewenberg

Gasol and Green both go to the bench with 4 fouls early in the 3rd quarter. Big break for Raps. Have to take advantage

Ryan Wolstat

Casey worked ref hard a few minutes back … Raptors get two highly debatable calls in their favour not long after ...

Payal Doshi

Amir Johnson doesn’t do it quite like James Johnson but does a summersault of his own! #rtz #acrobatics

Eric Smith

I live for Tom Sterner halftime interviews. He's the best. Love talking to him. #Raptors #RTZ #sportsnet

Ryan Wolstat

Dwane Casey clapping his hands after fine offensive rebound by Valanciunas. He drew third foul on Gasol. Only Raptor efficient besides Lou.

Ryan Wolstat

Quite pleased to be back courtside... not sure what Vince Carter is doing, besides photo-bombing. http://t.co/PdqaJBaxew

Ryan Wolstat

Vasquez on Lowry: "He might not be playing most efficient basketball over last week but he's done so much for us. He got all of us better"

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry and DeRozan are a combined 2-for-12 with 4 points at the half and the Raps are within 3

Josh Lewenberg

Raps shooting 33% from field, 14% from 3 but D (Grizz: 42%) and rebounding (27-18, 10-2 oreb) have been excellent. Grizz by 3 at half

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors trail 41-38 at the half, shot 33%. Casey gave ref an earful for bizarre offensive foul call on Patterson that negated DeRozan dunk.

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry’s a train wreck right now. Every point guard is blowing past him and he can’t make a shot. Matty D put the hex on him!

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan's first points in nearly 1.5 games comes with 51 seconds remaining in the 2ndQ

Ryan Wolstat

Marc Gasol doesn’t get enough love. Mighty close to being one of 10 best players in league. Top centre?

Ryan Wolstat

DeMar DeRozan hasn’t scored in six quarters. He is 0 for past 14 attempts.

Ryan Wolstat

Offensive boards are 10-1 Raptors. Bizarre.

Josh Lewenberg

Amir's put-back gives the Raptors a 9-1 edge on the offensive boards. They grabbed 20, a season-best, in Monday's win over the Bucks

Ryan Wolstat

Who are these guys? Raptors up 23-13 on the boards. Keeping them in game.

Eric Smith

Fan in timeout had to recite alphabet backwards to win a prize. Couldn't do it. Host said do it normal...dude got it wrong, and lost. Wow

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry has completely lost shooting touch. 18% from three past four games, 50% from line. 0-for-2 from both so far.

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry has made 1 of his last 20 attempts from 3-point range

Ryan Wolstat

Refs letting both teams play, Lowry pointing to his elbow, wants a call.

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry to the scorer's table

Josh Lewenberg

JV in first Q: 3-for-4, 6 points. Rest: 2-for-14, 10 points

Paul Jones

We were informed by @RaptorsMR that Lowry had a dislocated ring finger on right hand. He is however back on bench and having in taped #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors offensive woes continue. They shot 5-for-18 from the field, 1-for-6 from 3 in the 1st Q but D keeping 'em in it. Tied at 16.

Eric Smith

Lowry popped his right ring finger back in. It's taped. He's on the bench. And available to come back. #Raptors #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson gets set to check in with 1:08 left in the 1st Q. Was a DNP CD in Milwaukee Monday. Gets nice hand here from crowd in Memphis

Ryan Wolstat

A lot of love for James Johnson for the Memphis crowd after his strong play here last year. Far different than Sacramento crowd.

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry back on the bench, James Johnson checking in after a DNP against Milwaukee.

Josh Lewenberg

Ring finger on Lowry's right hand popped out going for a loose ball. They popped it back in place and he's returned to the bench

Ryan Wolstat

Yep, was finger for Lowry. Ring finger popped out, got it taped, will be back.

Paul Jones

Waiting for a report on Lowry who sprinted to the locker room holding his left hand after diving for a ball in front of #Raptors bench #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Not sure what happened. Lowry may have jammed a finger but knew immediately something was wrong, bolted for the locker room. Stay tuned

Eric Smith

Lowry just dove for a ball that was squirting out of bounds. May have popped a finger out of joint. Got up & ran straight to Locker room

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry dives for a ball by the bench, comes up holding his hand/wrist and runs straight to the locker room

Payal Doshi

Lowry doing the intangibles diving for the ball and then goes straight to the locker room. #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

The Grizz, the anti-Raptors, went big, replacing Courtney Lee with Jeff Green. Meanwhile, Lowry just ran to the locker room after a spill.

Josh Lewenberg

Two quick fouls on Greivis. Ross, first Raptor off the bench, replaces him 6 minutes into the game.

Josh Lewenberg

Grizzlies have scored 8 of their first 12 points in the paint. They lead the NBA in that category. 6-0 Grizz run. Raps down 6 early.

Josh Lewenberg

Tony Allen (inactive with illness in first meeting) has given DeRozan fits in the past. He opens on Lowry tonight.

Payal Doshi

#Fact the #Raptors have never swept the #Grizzlies in consecutive season (via @Matt__Devlin). Could it happen tonight? #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

Another exciting instalment of Naismith Cup. Three of greatest Raptors ever played for both franchises: Damon, VC and … Benoit Benjamin.

Eric Smith

Tip off in mere moments. @raptors in Memphis on #sportsnet. #rtz instagram.com/p/yIw8c9o28b/

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis says Raps have to get back to FUN: "We have to get back to us. The gestures we do when we make a shot, jumping up&down on the bench"

Ryan Wolstat

Casey says starting lineup change isn’t permanent, but he likes it for now. Team needs to push pace against grind it out Grizz.

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas said Team USA vs. World instead of rookie/sophomore game would have been a lot of fun.
