Lowry is arguing with both official Marc Davis and teammate Lou Williams over his foul on Telfair.
JV leaves with a game-high nine points. Hansbrough in for him.
Thing that's difficult to say with a straight face: "Former Raptor Sebastian Telfair"
Sebastian Telfair, - remember him - is in the game for the Thunder.
Interesting Morrow tidbit. Asked Lowry about best shooters in NBA last year- he had Morrow in top 3. Underrated player, tho top3 is bit much
Raps starters against a Durant-less Thunder are down 14-8 after 6:20.
This OKC team is real thin on the wing sans KD. Will need Lamb/PJ3 to grow up in a hurry. Morrow's a nice pickup/great shooter - should help
Amir just got rejected by the rim. Ouch.
Not a great start for DeRozan and his new and improved handle. Couple bobbles early. Too much dribbling
DeMar's handle a little shaky tonight.
Valanciunas first touch he goes right up and over Adams for his first points.
Ibaka making his pre-season debut, Westbrook plays after sitting out last night. OKC going all out to beat the mighty Raptors?
By the looks of the empty seats here at InTrust Bank Arena, the Durant injury has hurt ticket sales.
No Greivis Vasquez tonight. He apparently was hit in the head with a basketball at shoortaround and was still a little light-headed.
In Wichita the national anthems are preceded by a prayer. As the local next to me said, "Welcome to the Midwest."
Raps regular starters: Ross, Johnson, JV, DeRozan and Lowry.
Thunder will start Morrow, Ibaka, Adams, Roberson and Westbrook.
Dwane Casey was asked at the team hotel in Wichita if Toronto had an NBA team.
Just referred to a home opener as a "hope opener," which, considering the specific context, was deeply ironic.
"I will edit this by reading it out loud to myself!" /does so for 45 seconds before going back to reading silently
In the midst of writing my longest story ever for the paper. My apartment is covered in salty tears of despondency.
Of course the feed you will be seeing will be the OKC feed so don't expect a lot of love for the Raptors.
Just a reminder that tonight's Raps/Thunder game will be televised on NBATV Canada. Tipoff is 8 p.m. Eastern.
Matchup of the night will be Valanciunas vs. Steven Adams. Adams is a beast and a good test for Jonas.
Regular starters tonight for Raps but they won't see quite regular season time yet. Casey wants to build up to that over final three exhibs

Rap Game Procrastination. (I've never been exactly clear how "Rap Game," works, nor do I want to be clear.)
bring on the coastal-middle america, blue state-red state think pieces!
Baseball is crazy.
Or at least an episode or two..
I really feel like a season of Walking Dead was filmed here..
Studies show that being 7 feet is bad for one's feet.
I'm not bothered by your dissin' you was in your feelings...
Weird stats, despite not scoring, Bruno led Raptors at +9. Kelly Olynyk went 2-for-7, but was game-best +17 (not a big +/- fan, but strange)
The longer I sit in this airport listening to people hack and wheeze, the more appealing that lady’s homemade hazmat suit looks.
Thank you God for another day to get better.. I'm so blessed.
Highlight of yesterday’s post-game Casey scrum definitely his bringing up “White Chocolate” and how Gary Payton went at him like Lowry/Smart
I asked Bruno if he was nervous ahead of his first start: "No, no, nothing,” he said. Every game he plays, he feels more comfortable.
Still talking hypothetically here, I would not deal JV for Horford. Maybe before injuries. Don't see Atl going for Ross, 1sts, expirings
Does any of my followers live in Wichita?
With all the Al Horford talk, interesting? Is should the Raptors target him, even if cost would be Valanciunas +
Pretty sad to leave Maine, though I'd be morbidly obese inside of two months if I lived here.
Great story if the Knicks do indeed start Quincy Acy over likes of Bargnani and Jason Smith. Actually fits well with that starting grp
Jordan Hamilton, Raptors top player last night, said he knows he's auditioning not only for Raptors, "but for the whole NBA."
