Ryan Wolstat

Nash also said he was "pretty pumped" about Raptors playoff run and said his friends in B.C. have jumped aboard bandwagon big-time.

Ryan Wolstat

Nash also fondly reminisced on many years spent battling Damon Stoudamire, who Raptors will honour tonight.

Ryan Wolstat

Just chatted with Steve Nash. Said he plans more hands-on role marketing/driving promotion of Canada Basketball. Retirement sinking in etc

Ryan Wolstat

Bet on Raptors playing first or second game of NBA playoff sked on Saturday.

Eric Koreen

The Hernandez case presents a powerful reminder: DO NOT murder people.

Eric Koreen

Reminder: Raps win + Bulls loss tonight = series vs. Milwaukee. Any other combo = series vs. Washington.

Michael Grange

The Raps don't have that "it' -- says Paul Pierce; great stuff in this ESPN interview: espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id… h/t @realjeffsimmons

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan laughed off Pierce's comments that Raptors don't have "it" factor. Was surprised to hear, said he'll use it as further motivation

Josh Lewenberg

Heres whats at stake for the Raps tonight, matchup scenarios & how their playoff fate could end up in Chicago's hands tsn.ca/talent/raptors…

Josh Lewenberg

Hearing Game 1 of Raptors series is likely Saturday afternoon. Not certain on time. Sched won't be official until after tonight's games

#raptors blog: Three things about the Raptors, including a question about the sanity of fans on.thestar.com/1EFcBy2

Ryan Wolstat

Last link was bad so again, Canadian high-schoolers put on a hoops show | Raptors | Sports | Toronto Sun torontosun.com/2015/04/14/can…

Ryan Wolstat

Also in that article, Raps-Bucks would be interesting for Ennis-McIntyre household since Bucks reserve Tyler Ennis grew up a Raptors fan

Ryan Wolstat

The stars came out on/off court for BioSteel All-Canadian game: http:/torontosun.com/2015/04/14/canadian-high-schoolers-put-on-a-hoops-show

Josh Lewenberg

With Bulls in the driver's seat, final night of the regular season will determine Raptors' playoff fate: tsn.ca/talent/raptors…

Eric Koreen

And some of it is self-mythologizing — these guys aren't as intense as I was — but it's fun.

Eric Koreen

Enjoyed Paul Pierce's version of the truth, lower case. Give me all of the honesty, NBA players: espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id…

Eric Smith

Game 82 on Wed. Depending how it all shakes down it'll be this...or...that. #raptors #rtz @raptors http://t.co/aZivigXJJ6

#FreeBasketball RT @Rachel__Nichols: Overtime on @NBAonTNT. Here we go... http://t.co/pqGEKMNjfT

Doug Smith

No MRI, no big deal on groin thing, DeRozan says. Could have played if absolutely necessary

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan said he plans to play in tomorrow's season finale, sat out as a precaution in first of back-to-back tonight

Payal Doshi

Here we go! Let the drama begin. RT @Scott Agness: Paul George back for the final 25 seconds.

Doug Smith

Dwane Casey said precaution on DeRozan re-tweaking old groin injury led to DD taking tonight vs. Cs off

Payal Doshi

Preach. RT @Ryan Wolstat: "We have to show the Americans that Canadians are here." Jalen Poyser.

Payal Doshi

Get ready! RT @TorontoStar: Modi-mania expected when Indian PM hits Toronto on.thestar.com/1CLx1Q5 http://t.co/fdd4dK8aGj

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said DeRozan's groin was sore after tweaking it vs Miami, couldve probably gone if it was a playoff game but trainers recommend he sit

Ryan Wolstat

"We have to show the Americans that Canadians are here." Jalen Poyser.

Eric Smith

Alright, I'm off the Twitter machine for now. G'night from Beantown

Josh Lewenberg

Again, looking ahead to 2nd round for a team that has NEVER won a 7-game series & has a .500 record in 2015 is nuts. Goal is to win a round

Josh Lewenberg

Hornets @ Raptors tips off at 7pm tomorrow, Hawks @ Bulls is an 8pm start. Raps will have to wait to learn their playoff fate

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors get 3rd IF they beat Hornets AND Bulls lose to Hawks tmrw. Bulls finish 3rd, Raps 4th IF Chicago wins OR Chicago AND Raps both lose

Eric Smith

It all comes down to game 82. CHI wins on Wed vs ATL they stay in 3rd. If CHI loses & TOR beats CHA, the #Raptors finish 3rd. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

The 50 win dream is dead for the Raptors

Josh Lewenberg

Celtics beat the Raptors. Bulls are now in the driver's seat for 3rd seed. No 50-win season for the Raps.

Eric Smith

Lowry blocked at buzzer. The #Raptors lose 95-93. TOR stays in 4th. CHI in 3rd. Raps will NOT get to 50 wins. #RTZ

Eric Smith

Crowder nails a RIDICULOUS shot. TWO #Raptors in his face. In the right corner he buries it. Toe on line. 95-93 BOS. :0.08 sec left. WOW

Josh Lewenberg

Crowder hits an impossible shot from the corner over the defending Hansbrough. Celts by 2. 0.8s left. Raps ball. Wow

Eric Smith

Lowry does it again. This time on the left side lay-in. Game tied at 93. No timeout for BOS. They drive & are stuffed. :3.1 sec BOS ball

Josh Lewenberg

Zeller gives Boston the lead on a broken play, Lowry quickly gets it back to tie. Call is Celts ball under rim, 2.5s left. Being reviewed.

Eric Smith

Turner misses. Long REB tipped around, TOR can't get it. BOS gets it; Turner drives again & dishes to Zeller. Lay in. 93-91 BOS. 14 sec

Doug Smith

Okay, not so perfect but busted play leads to Cs bucket with 14.0 left

Doug Smith

Raps, Cs at 91-91 with 31.1 left, Boston ball after textbook Tor 2-for-1 Lowry bucket; now Brad Stevens will draw up some perfect play

Eric Smith

Lowry drives, lays it in, and the #Raptors tie it at 91 with :31.1 sec to play. BOS ball. #Celtics #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry attacks the rim, ties the game with a quick layup. Celtics have it with 31.1 on the clock.

Ryan Wolstat

Shout out to the DJ at the BioSteel All-Canadian Basketball Game. He’s been great. Finishes with a little Return of the Mack.

Josh Lewenberg

Turner hits a fallaway jumper to give the Celtics a 2-point lead. Raptors will inbound with 35.2s left.

Eric Smith

BOS inbounds -- after review -- with only 5 sec on shot clock Evan Turner nails right corner jumper. BOS leads 91-89 w/ 35.2 sec left

Eric Smith

HUGE swat by Ross on the Thomas drive. Play reviewed...on-floor call stands. 36.6 sec to go, tied at 89. #Raptors #Celtics

Eric Smith

TOR comes away empty from a long time in BOS end. Lou-Will couldn't nail it. :55.3 sec. BOS ball. 89-89. #RTZ #Raptors #Celtics

Ryan Wolstat

Meet your giant Makers, Thon and Matur http://t.co/2ABlSmn5yP

Eric Smith

2:10 to play....it's down to the wire in Beantown. #Raptors and #Celtics tied at 89. TOR actually 8/13 FG in Q4 but not enough; BOS pesky

Eric Smith

3:32 to play, HUGE 3-ball by Smart ties the game at 87. TOR comes back and misses. BOS ball. 3:10 left now. #Celtics #Raptors #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

"and the beauty of the game, so I really enjoy watching them and myself playing with them.” Thon Maker, meaning play in this game with them

Ryan Wolstat

“They can move the ball, shoot the ball, pass the ball, I know Canadian basketball when I see Canadian basketball, and it's ball movement …

Ryan Wolstat

"All of them, they can play. I subbed myself out of the scrimmage yesterday just to watch some of the guys,” Maker said of BioSteel roster.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors have turned the ball over 20 times, leading to 21 Celtics' points. Still, Toronto leads by 3 with 5:24 remaining.

Eric Smith

BOS timeout. 5:24 to go. #Raptors lead the #Celtics 85-82. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

I don’t know what the rules of getting Thon Maker eligible to play for Canada would be or if he is interested, but interesting quotes ...

Josh Lewenberg

New Raptors record for three-pointers in a season. Patterson hits # 714

Doug Smith

Amir Johnson has 8-8 in 15 minutes for Raptors vs. Cs where defence has turned optional

Josh Lewenberg

With that Vasquez triple Raptors match their franchise record for most three-pointers in a season (713), previously set last year

Ryan Wolstat

Jamal Murray on staying in Canada: "I just keep doing my thing, don’t worry about what’s happening behind me. Just keep looking forward."

Doug Smith

Remember when Jonas Jerebko getting an all-star rookie game invite over Ed Davis was a thing? Seriously, for about a day it was. Honest

Eric Smith

10:20 to go ... 18 turnovers for the #Raptors. They had 9 in the 1st half. They have 9 already in the 2nd half.

Eric Smith

73-70 #Celtics lead the #Raptors as Q4 is about to begin. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Again, defensive rebounding has been an issue for the Raps. Celtics have scored 18 points off their 14 offensive boards.

Eric Smith

.#Celtics shot 9/27 (that's 33% kids) in Q3 & still managed to turn-in a 10-pt swing. From down 7 at half to up 3 goin to Q4. TOR was 7/20

Doug Smith

Celtics lead Raptors 73-70 after 3; there are playoff matchup implications all over the place, luckily 4th quarter is time to figure 'em out

Mike Ganter

Raps down 73-70 after three quarters. Scored just 17 in the quarter. Lou has 13 while TRoss and Lowry have 12. Bradley, who is out, has 14.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors led by 15 with 2 minutes left in the first half - they've been outscored 36-18 since and trail by 3 going into the 4th Q

Josh Lewenberg

Amir has looked great in limited PT tonight. Very active, moving well. Good sign for Raptors going into playoffs. He needed the rest.

Ryan Wolstat

“We want Thon” chant breaks out. Thon laughs and looks back at the crowd.

Ryan Wolstat

Believe after Raptors game, yes RT @jonathan_2545: @Ryan Wolstat are they filming the game now and airing it at 10pm?

Eric Smith

That last call against Valanciunas was horri-awful. Unexplainable.

Eric Smith

With 2 FT's ... the #Celtics now LEAD the #Raptors. 64-63...just over 5 min to go in Q3

Ryan Wolstat

Apparently, the basketball world has slept on Matur Maker as it honed in on his older, taller brother. Kid has crazy bounce.

Doug Smith

1-point Raptors lead in Boston where Cs have lost Avery Bradley for the night with a bruise.

Josh Lewenberg

Raps lead, once 15, is down to 1 midway through 3rd Q. Celts coming on strong but Avery Bradley is done for the night - had game-high 14 pts

Eric Smith

BOS cut the TOR lead (once 15 in Q2) to 3 early in Q3. TOR got it back to 8. Now w/ 5:40 to play in Q3, #raptors lead #celtics 63-62. #RTZ

Michael Grange

Jamal Murray taking over at the BioSteel All-Canadian game ... 22pts/8reb/7a with 526 left in 3rd quarter.

Ryan Wolstat

Matur Maker highlight reel time. Ridiculous block, runs down the floor Murray sets up a big alley oop. Thon isn’t only mega-talent.

Ryan Wolstat

Would be hard to get mad at Pierce wouldn’t it? He’s real deal, has talked endless smack and backed it up for years.

Ryan Wolstat

"We haven't done particularly well against Toronto but I don't feel they have the 'It' that makes u worried'' Pierce” espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id…

Doug Smith

Raptors up 7 on Cs at halftime; had led by 15, luckily none of us cancelled our Washington hotel reservations then

Mike Ganter

Raps up 53-46. Marcus Smart throws one down with force to end the half. Bradley has 14 for the Celts. Lou has 11 and TRoss has 10 for Raps.

Josh Lewenberg

Celtics end the half on a 9-1 run, cutting the Raptors lead to 7 at the break. Halftime coverage coming up on @TSN1050Radio

Eric Smith

.Raptors were up 15 fairly late in 1st half. As they go into the break, they lead the #Celtics 53-46. 9-1 BOS run. Lou-Will 11 PTS. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors' bench outscoring Celts reserves 22-10. Lou has 11 points despite hitting 1 of his 4 FGA. He's 9-for-9 from the line.

Josh Lewenberg

Ross and Vasquez hit back-to-back 3-balls, stretching the Raptors' lead to 13, their largest of the night. 2:20 left in the half.

Josh Lewenberg

After starting 1-for-5 in each of his first 2 games back, Lowry is 1-for-6 so far tonight. Again, now's the time to work through that rust

Eric Smith

5:28 to go in Q2 the #Raptors lead the #Celtics 40-31. Lou Williams has 11 PTS to lead the way for TOR ... and to lead all scorers. #RTZ
