Josh Lewenberg

To be clear, Raps are 25-12 with DeRozan, 12-9 without. They're not better without him, they need to get him right, somehow.

Ryan Wolstat

Of course Andrea Bargnani drops the dagger.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan gets beat off the dribble, JV comes over to help, gets called for his 6th foul and that'll end his night. Pat in for him.

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas fouls out with 3:11 remaining. Raptors down six.

Josh Lewenberg

Back-to-back Vasquez 3-balls cuts the Knicks 12-point lead in half. 3:29 to go.

Josh Lewenberg

Plan was to sit Lowry out in Philly on Monday. Even w/ eye on playoffs, have to wonder if that plan will be amended after this embarrassment

Ryan Wolstat

Turn out the lights, the Raptors have hit … youtube.com/watch?v=h-3CmK…

Ryan Wolstat

Get well soon, Kyle Lowry.

Tim Chisholm

The Raptors played this whole game like they never believed they could lose. Well...

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas and DeRozan back to try to prevent Knicks from closing within 24.5 games of the Raptors.

Josh Lewenberg

Through 19 minutes of action JV had attempted 1 shot. He's taken 5 in 4 minutes since. Keep feeding him until Knicks/fouls take him out

Ryan Wolstat

I have no idea what Norm Macdonald is talking about, but his Twitter stories are fantastic.

Payal Doshi

It’s the little things. RT @NickMetallinos: MSG moments: The rise of Alexey Shved

Josh Lewenberg

JV picks up his 5th foul early in the 4th Q. Casey leaving him in. He's been the Raps offence for most of the last 5 minutes

Ryan Wolstat

Feed Valanciunas the rest of the way. Look at who he is going up against. Makes sense, no?

Josh Lewenberg

Only 2 of the other 8 Raptors to play tonight (Ross, Hansbrough) have attempted fewer shots than Valanciunas, who is 3-for-4 in 19 minutes

Josh Lewenberg

On a night in which DeMar DeRozan has missed an open dunk, Knicks fan banks in a $10K halfcourt shot. Of course.

Ryan Wolstat

Biggest cheer of the season at MSG perhaps? Dude hits half-court shot for $10,010

Payal Doshi

Bargnani looked to have a momentary lapse as he passes the ball out of bounds to the Raptors bench. #rtz

Payal Doshi

Hey @SHOsports when will the @Kobe Bryant documentary be available in #Canada?

Payal Doshi

I’m sure he’s taking note. RT @Kyle_Ratke: Pretty cool to see Wiggins aggressive against Tony Allen.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez and Williams had moments in 2nd Q but an ugly half overall. Raps trail lowly Knicks by 3. Halftime coverage next on @TSN1050Radio

Ryan Wolstat

Might be wrong here, but there are some fans with a Spanish flag yelling “Calderon” every time Greivis Vasquez has the ball. Umm ...

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis and Lou have given the Raps a spark midway through the 2nd Q. 9-0 run, including 7 points from Vasquez. Toronto leads by 1

Josh Lewenberg

Signs of life from Lou Williams and the Raptors' bench. Toronto, down 10 earlier in the Q, is now within 3

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors starters have 2 assists after 12 minutes tonight after recording 1 in 48 last night, so there's that.

Josh Lewenberg

Good news: 15 pts & 32% shooting is a definite improvement on last night's disastrous 1st Q. Bad news: Raps trail by 7 to worst team in NBA

Josh Lewenberg

Back-up PG minutes for Lou Williams with Lowry resting.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan finally gets on the board w/ step-back 13-footer, his 4th shot, only to attempt a 360 in transition and miss the dunk moments later

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan’s blown dunk prompts a “screw you Canada, you suck,” from one fan sitting nearby.

Ryan Wolstat

Yikes, DeMar DeRozan can’t even make a breakaway dunk. Tries to show off, doesn’t go down.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan misses his first 3 attempts, a couple haven't even been close. Early PT for Pat with JV picking up 2 quick fouls. Raps down 11-10

Payal Doshi

And so it begins. #WeTheNorth RT @Ian Begley: There's an audible "Let's go Raptors" chant here at MSG for #Knicks-Raptors.

Ryan Wolstat

Everything is awesome RT @steven_lebron: Last Knick introduced tonight: Lou Amundson.

Josh Lewenberg

Bargnani vs Valanciunas: battle of the pump fakes you shouldn't fall for.

Josh Lewenberg

In attendance at MSG: Raptor fans booing Bargnani. They travel in packs, after all

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors fans are booing Bargnani here at MSG … at least I think they are Raptors fans.

Josh Lewenberg

I could see Bargnani dropping 30 tonight... or exiting early with an injury. Scenario B is probably more likely

Ryan Wolstat

Let’s go Raptors starts on first possession. Knicks fans boo.

Ryan Wolstat

What a lineup for Knicks. We almost saw Cleanthony Early get run over by a car in Vegas, there’s Iron Horse Bargnani, THJ Galloway, Amundsen

Payal Doshi

Going to miss @Matt__Devlin on the broadcast tonight. I hope he gets well soon!

Josh Lewenberg

Expect Lowry to sit out Mon. vs PHI as well. Has been battling multitude of ailments. Priority is getting him right for stretch run/playoffs

Ryan Wolstat

Casey wasn’t being coy about the starting bigs, as he seemed to imply, Amir Johnson back in for Patterson.

Ryan Wolstat

Moment of silence coming up here at MSG for Anthony Mason.

Ryan Wolstat

Chuck Hayes on Anthony Mason: "Fair to say that early in my career I studied his game to make a niche for myself to stay in the league."

Ryan Wolstat

James Johnson told me Lowry has been playing through all kinds of ailments "only the locker room knows about."

Paul Jones

ICYMI "@RaptorsMR: Kyle Lowry (rest) will sit out tonight's game in New York. #raptors #rtz"

Ryan Wolstat

Ultra-coy Dwane Casey mode told me Lowry would sit down the line... turns out down the line is tonight.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors will rest Lowry tonight

Ryan Wolstat

Looks like Lowry sitting

Paul Jones

As a kid spending time growing up in NYC there was nothing like a New York crowd at the Worlds Most… instagram.com/p/zqbYdrSNCA/

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said they've discussed possibility of sitting Lowry for a game or 2 to rest nagging ailments, expects it to happen but didnt say when

Ryan Wolstat

Casey also says they will rest Lowry for a game or two at some point

Ryan Wolstat

Casey says Patterson for Amir was a Draymond Green matchup move. Back to usual lineup, likely

Eric Smith

On the 1 train w/ my man Jack. Heading to MSG for the @raptors & #knicks. #rtz instagram.com/p/zqaXTlI215/

Kyle Lowry

Wow. Just heard 30% of kids w #raredisease won't live to 5th bday! Tell everyone today is rare disease day @giverare giverare.org

Amir Johnson

It's Something About The Mecca. 🏀🙏

Kyle Lowry

Almost game time. Doesn't matter how many times I've done it, playin at The Garden will always be special.

Eric Smith

Ezeli suspended 1 gm for his dust up w/ hansbrough last night. No suspension (nor should there be) for hansbrough. @raptors #rtz #warriors

Josh Lewenberg

More Casey on Hansbrough: "That was a positive. We get 13, 14 other guys to have that kind of fight, fire and passion, we’ll go with that”

Josh Lewenberg

Casey on Hansbrough altercation last night: "I love it. I dont want to see a guy get in a fight but I was glad to see somebody ready to hit"

Josh Lewenberg

NBA has suspended Ezeli 1 game for "initiating altercation with Hansbrough by grabbing his throat. No additional punishment for Hansbrough

Eric Koreen

Brian Burke: picking fights with straw men since, well, I'm guessing forever.

Ryan Wolstat

Last night was first time as a Raptor Kyle Lowry failed to register an assist and first goose egg for him since 1st game of 2009-10 season.

Ryan Wolstat

Can’t see it happening, especially with four-game losing streak, but Raptors should consider resting Lowry against Knicks and Sixers.

Michael Grange

Pangos has started every game in his career except his first one; only player in Zags history with 1700 pts/500 assists/150 steals.

Michael Grange

One of the best careers ever by a Canadian D1 player will be recognized 2night as @ZagMBB honours its snrs headed by @KPangos -- congrats!

Let's all not be angsty today.

At Oakland, Raptors let Warriors shoot 70%, get 13 assists, just one turnover in first quarter. Yesterday, Raptors shot 5% in 1st quarter.

Lowry was held without an assist last night for the 1st time in his 205 gms as a Raptor. Over 4gm losing skid: 15-54 FG, 3-26 3P, 15ast/11TO

“The fans pay their hard-earned money to come out and see us perform."

"I don’t know if we’re complacent as far as where we are in the standings. It shouldn’t matter. It shouldn’t matter,” Casey said.

"We were kind of soft, too soft. We've got to man up and show that we can do it.” - Jonas Valanciunas after Toronto’s fourth straight loss.
