Eric Smith

Casey (I'm paraphrasing) spoke in general -- about no 1 team specifically -- saying 'careful what ya wish for' re: teams losing/jockeying

Landry Fields

LOL at my last tweet

Eric Koreen

In spirit of reflection, favourite story I wrote this season was only kind of about the Rudy Gay trade: sports.nationalpost.com/2013/12/10/wee…

Eric Smith

Casey says nobody is resting tonight. All systems go. TOR is trying to win. He wouldn't say if there are min. restrictions. #rtz #raptors

The Raptors used to fret about being the NBA's Canadian outsiders; now it's driven them to new heights: ow.ly/vR08X

Michael Grange

There's something about 'Genie: "@ArashMadani Eugenie Bouchard strolls into Fed Cup press conference rocking old school Expos cap."

Eric Koreen

To sum it all up: Tonight is a good reminder that we are all powerless in this world, so just watch basketball and have fun.

Michael Grange

Must read on travesty at FSU and how football stars are above the law; amazing work by NYT: nytimes.com/interactive/20…

Paul Jones

Great numbers from J Rusin. Gms of playoff experience. Tor 156, Bkn 570 Was 271 Cha 180. #Raptors have also swept 9 opp this season #rtz

Eric Koreen

Of course, if Charlotte beats Bulls, Raps game will become totally meaningless around 9:30.

Eric Koreen

Perhaps only way to manipulate things tonight is to play super slow pace, ensure many fouls, so that yours is the game that finishes last.

Eric Koreen

Worst-case scenario for raps: Raps lose, Bulls lose, Nets lose, Washington wins.

Eric Koreen

Best-case scenario for Raps: Chicago wins, Raptors lose, Nets lose, Washington wins.

Eric Koreen

Well, I should restate: Raps control if they lineup with Heat/Pacers — a win guarantees Heat. So they, don't control optimal result.

Eric Koreen

The Raptors don't control if they line up w/ Heat/Pacers, don't control if they play Nets/Wiz/Bobcats. So it goes.

Eric Koreen

Prediction: Raps finish third, face Nets, on Heat's side of bracket. I base this on years of observation.

Ryan Wolstat

Wow, with everyone cutting left and right, Globe suddenly acting like Pacman Jones in the strip club. Making it rain. Strange times

Eric Koreen

Toronto/Canadian media right now, basically: my fever dream of a 30-team NBA trade.

Paul Jones

The folks at nba.com put this out yesterday tinyurl.com/k74v2hb #rtz

Eric Koreen

Plz follow @gourmetspud for all your media breaking news.

Paul Jones

3/3 Was could b 5/6/7 seed (c prev tweet for 5/6 seed) but could be 7 if L to Bos and Cha def Chi then Cha is 6 seed got it ...lol #rtz

Paul Jones

2/3 Bkn could be 5/6 seed #5 if win in Cle #6 if lose and Was def Bos. Was 5 if def Bos and Bkn L vs Cle. If both lose Bkn 5 seed #rtz

Eric Koreen

And, as was pointed out by @smithraps, the last day of the regular season should really be called Ben Uzoh Day. #BenUzohDay

Paul Jones

1/3 For all those asking. #Raptors will be 3 seed if win tonight regardless. Will be #4 if lose to NYK and Chi def Cha.

Patrick Patterson

Good morning world.

Eric Koreen

"John, run 'horns sideways.'" "Coach, that's not a play. 'Horns up' or 'Horns down?" "I SAID 'HORNS SIDEWAYS," JEEZ."

Eric Koreen

"OK, Deron. If I yell 'one,' take it hard to the basket. If i yell 'two,' punt the ball right at Dan Gilbert there."

Eric Koreen

So, it is important to remember that on occasion, sports are just the dumbest.

Eric Koreen

"Take a delay of game," a coach will yell. "I'm hoping my Score mobile app will update the score. Do we want to win?"

Eric Koreen

With each team down by one at 10:31 tonight, Raps/Wiz/Nets will draw up plays for Landry Fields, Otto Porter and Marquis Teague.

Eric Koreen

So, for a man who did not see the Brooklyn-Knicks game last night: We're the Nets trying or "trying?"

Eric Koreen

.@Holly MacKenzie wrote a pretty comprehensive profile of Amir Johnson, man of the people: sportsonearth.com/article/721401…

Eric Koreen

Since they don't know who will finish 5/6 and Wiz/Nets play at same time, the Raptors will have no idea what preferable finish is.

Eric Koreen

Also, on the futility of trying to determine their first-round opponent, which is now extra-futile! sports.nationalpost.com/2014/04/15/why…

Here are the Raptors' updated seeding/matchup scenarios after Nets loss. Shaping up to be a wild finish tsn.ca/toronto/story/…

Eric Smith

This (alleged? (obvious?)) tanking nonsense is such garbage. What if TOR loses to NY or WAS loses to BOS...*COULD* change any/all 'plans'

Mike Ganter

Multi-year deal for Chris Wright in Milwaukee. Good things happen to good people.

Josh Lewenberg

Nets loss in NY further complicates tomorrow's potential seeding scenarios. Nets can finish in 5th or 6th, Raps 3/4, Wiz 5/6/7, Cats 6/7

Michael Grange

He has special powers: "@SNBarryDavis The #bluejays 6th starts with Kawasaki double, they score 5 & take a 3-run lead."

With a game left in the regular season, I look back at the Raptors' season with some arbitrary honours: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/04/15/the…

Landry Fields

Hey @NCAA think about the message you're sending to non-D1 athletes. Awful.

Landry Fields

Before I get all carried away, can someone tell me if @NCAA only meant division 1 or all divisions? Please tell me the latter..

Eric Smith

But why just division 1? What about other NCAA schools that give athletic-scholarships?

Josh Lewenberg

Nets fall to 6th, avoid 4th (likely Bulls) & face 3rd (likely Raptors) with: losses vs NY and @ CLE + Wizards win @ BOS Wednesday

Josh Lewenberg

Would you put it past Jason Kidd (a man who staged a sideline collision/drink spill) to throw a couple games for favourable seeding?

My thoughts on the futility of the Raps trying to determine their opponent, and Eastern seeding scenarios: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/04/15/why…

Ryan Wolstat

PPG looks at most of what I’ve been tweeting about today, PG play, banner, D woes: blogs.canoe.ca/courtside/bask…

Ryan Wolstat

Big part of Toronto’s surging April offence: Greivis Vasquez shooting 61% from three (17-for-28) in past five games.

Ryan Wolstat

In other words: Nice job Raptors. Fresh Lowry huge key for playoffs. Best to sit out Amir Wednesday too.

Ryan Wolstat

Four games before Kyle Lowry got some rest: 17 assists, 17 turnovers. Four games since coming back: 21 assists, 6 turnovers, 26.5 PPG

Ryan Wolstat

So, while Toronto’s once-excellent defence has fallen off of a cliff, the bright side would be team is going at crazy clip at other end.

Ryan Wolstat

Defensive worries justified and small sample size, but, Toronto’s 115.2 offensive rating in April by far NBA’s best (23 in D-rating)
