Eric Koreen

To recap: Raps/Bulls can finish 3rd/4th; Nets can finish 5th/6th; Wiz can finish 5th/6th/7th; Bobs can finish 6th/7th

Eric Koreen

DeRozan said the team came to him about resting him. He added that he wasn't about to argue.

Michael Grange

Lost without a Jays game? See our In Focus feature doc on Steve Delabar & his wild ride to being an All-Star -- sportsnet.ca/baseball/in-fo…

Eric Koreen

So, bobcats win. Bulls going to win. Seeds 3-7 still up in the air.

Josh Lewenberg

"We'll see," Casey says, asked if DeRozan will be rested in Wednesday's season finale. Wanted to give him night off today.

Josh Lewenberg

Time to force Dwane Casey to comment on a record he'll refuse to take any credit for (he deserves a whole lot of it FWIW)

Michael Grange

It's tempting to use Raptors/TFC turnaround as proof Leafs can do it too ... Don't fall for it: sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/reb…

Tom Liston

#Raptors Franchise record 48 wins. Winning as a *team*. #NorthernUprising #RTZ

Eric Smith

the D wasn't great again (52.1% FG for MIL). But the #Raptors beat MIL 110-100 & earn a franchise-record 48th win. TOR now 48-33. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

'Topes win for a franchise-record 48th time, 110-100 over the Bucks. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Record-breaking night. Raptors set new franchise win mark w/ 48th victory of the season, go 15 games above .500 for 1st time in team history

Josh Lewenberg

Turns out the fans were going to get free pizza regardless of the result. So this 100+ point win was a waste? #Fanapolooza

Eric Smith

after surviving a 'scare' (seeing the #bucks cut the led to 6), the #Raptors are in control, leading 108-93 with 1:00 to go. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors will finish the season 26-15 at home (22-7 since Dec. 28). They're an undefeated 19-0 when leading after 3 quarters at the ACC

Tom Liston

#Raptors have the best record in the Eastern Conference since moving Rudy Chucksalot. Thank you Sacramento. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Time to clear the bench, Dwane.

Josh Lewenberg

First Eastern Conf. series is set: Pacers lock up the top seed with Miami's loss to Washington, will face 8th-place Hawks in opening round

Eric Smith

"Nice 'hands', bro." -- a fan to Tyler Hansbrough as he checks out a few moments ago. C'mon. That's weak. Gotta do better than that

Tom Liston

#Raptors Holy hilarious calls. Watch that replay. We have the C team of officials. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

If Bobcats lose tonight, they're out of the running as a potential Raptors first-round opponent. Down four in the third quarter to Atlanta.

Eric Smith

the #bucks start Q4 8/10 and shave the lead all the way down to 6. the #Raptors have punched back & have it at 11 now. 98-88; 5:50 to go

Tom Liston

#Raptors Allowing MIL to score 86 points with over six minutes left is a bad omen for our playoff odds. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

10-0 Bucks run, Raptors lead is down to 7, because of course. In comes Lowry/JV/Amir. So much for rest

Eric Smith

in 1:41 ... the #Bucks fire-off a QUICK 8-0 run and chop the #Raptors 17 point lead down to 9. TOR up 91-82. 8:03 to go. #RTZ

Tom Liston

#Raptors Fans doing the wave with the Raptors up by only 9 is very embarrassing. We're better than that people. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Raptors lead down to nine, because they hate us.

Josh Lewenberg

How much longer do they have to do the wave before the banner is taken away?

Eric Smith

Toronto. Where the 'wave' happens. They love the wave in Toronto.

Payal Doshi

What will @Giannis Antetokounmpo and I compare tonight! I have a couple surprises. Stay tuned #Insidethepurpleroom http://t.co/GDYEQ1tk9w

Eric Smith

9:44 to go in Q4 and the #raptors lead the #Bucks 91-74. #RTZ

Tom Liston

#Raptors Move the rock like that possession and you'll win some playoff games. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

LRT: It's almost as if the Heat don't know that the Raptors are Atlantic Division champions.

Eric Smith

.#Raptors: 34-2 when they lead after 3 QRTs (cc: @paul__jones) & 18-0 at home when leading after 3. TOR goes to Q4 up 84-69 on #Bucks. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Vintage third-quarter Lowry, he scored 10 of his 18 points in the frame. Raptors lead by 15 heading to the 4th

Eric Koreen

Raps up 84-69 after three.

Eric Smith

2:40 to go in Q3...the #Raptors lead the #Bucks 79-61. Hansbrough: 9 REB & 7 PTS in 13 min off the bench. #RTZ #SmithAndjones

Tom Liston

#Raptors Tyler Hansborough with 9 boards in 11 minutes. And he's +18. #RTZ

Eric Smith

JV: 25th double-double of the season (10 PTS, 11 REB) ... #Raptors lead the #Bucks 70-57 w/ 5:51 to go in Q3. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

25th double-double of the season for JV (10 points, 10 rebounds, and counting)

Josh Lewenberg

Would be great if they can put together a big 3rdQ, rest Lowry/Amir in 4th but the Raptor blowout (win or loss) has been rare this year

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry's toying with people again

Payal Doshi

Amir with the summertime three!

Eric Koreen

In honour of the new banner, Kyle Lowry has brought #scowlry back.

Josh Lewenberg

The last time the Raptors unveiled a division banner: Andrea Bargnani closed out his promising rookie season with 17 pts off Toronto's bench

Josh Lewenberg

The last time the Raptors unveiled a division banner: Luke Jackson started and scored 30 points for Toronto

Josh Lewenberg

Wiz up 70-48 on LeBron/Bosh-less Heat at the half. They'd need to win out (MIA, @ BOS) w/ Nets losing last 2 (vNY, @ CLE) to steal 5 seed

Mike Ganter

The Raptors have attemped 19 three pointers in the first half and made 10. They lead by 13 despite allowing Milwaukee to shoot 49%.

Eric Smith

the #Raptors lead the #Bucks at the half, 59-46. MIL did close the half on an 8-0 run though, shaving a 21-pt TOR lead to 13. #RTZ

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors from three-point range over the last 6.5 games: 78/173 (45%). 10/19 (53%) in the first half tonight

Josh Lewenberg

Bucks end the half on a 9-2 run, cutting Toronto's lead to 13 at the break. Concern, again, is the D. Bucks are shooting 49%

Eric Koreen

At the half, Raps up 59-46. Vasquez has 17 and 6 to lead in both categories.

Eric Koreen

The banner ceremony plus the Raptors resting DeMar really seems to have pissed off the ... nah.

Mike Ganter

Amir heading into the stands to celebrate his dunk is something we have to see again on "Open Gym".

Mike Ganter

DeMar in good company tonight. Also getting NBA night off are LeBron, Bosh, Kawhi Leonard and a bunch of others.

Payal Doshi

Potentially the best executed fast break by the Toronto Raptors this season! Integrating the bounce pass Lowry-Vasquez -Amir with the dunk!

Eric Smith

amir with the throwdown ... showdown ... then pose-down ... slapping 5's w/ gucci row after the dunk. #Raptors lead 57-37. Q2; 3:02. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

What a fast break. Lowry to Greivis to Amir, to the rim, to the stands and beyond to celebrate.

Josh Lewenberg

Magic/Bulls set to tip off from Chicago. Former Raptors cast off-turned-current Bulls saviour DJ Augustin won't play after birth of his son

Josh Lewenberg

Nice hand and partial standing O for the Leafs' new alternate governor as he's introduced on the big screen

Eric Smith

5:22 to go in Q2, the #Raptors lead the #Bucks 53-35. Vasquez, starting tonight in place of DeRozan, has 17 PTS on 6/7 FG. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

The Leafs introduce Brendan Shanahan to the crowd. I can't make this up: They played Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer" while they did it.

Mike Ganter

I really didn't think John Henson had that kind of snark in him.

Eric Koreen

Give John Henson a break. He's played the whole year for the Bucks.

Josh Lewenberg

Nando knocks down the Raptors' 10th three-pointer of the night w/ 6:45 left in the 2ndQ. Raps have hit 10+ treys in 6 of their last 7 games

Payal Doshi

Commend Nando for his hustle on the court. He dove to protect that ball!

Eric Koreen

The Raptors are 10-for-16 from 3. The Bucks are 1-for-2.

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis Vasquez could put up "crazy numbers" if he played 39 minutes a night - pointed out by Greivis Vasquez a couple weeks ago

Mike Ganter

The first guy who suggests Vasquez starts in place of DeRozan in the playoffs gets his Raptors' Fan Club card revoked.

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez sinks his 5th triple of the night, perfect 6/6 from the field, giving the Raptors their largest lead at 20

Eric Koreen

Treyvis Vasqu3z.

Eric Smith

FREE..."Party in the Square" during the #raptors post-season (for ALL games). Watch TOR games on the big screen in Maple Leaf Square. #RTZ

Mike Ganter

Not that this is possible, but the Raptors should save some of these threes for the weekend. They have seven through 13 minutes.

Eric Koreen

Ooooh, another play where Hansbrough is fouled under bucket when another player hits a shot. Those are always fun.

Eric Smith

end of Q1, the #Raptors lead the #Bucks 32-19. TOR shooting 50% FG (including 6/11 from 3PT). only one Q1 turnover for TOR. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Hansbrough's tip at the end of the quarter doesn't count. 32-19 Raps after a frame. The Raptors are on pace for 24 three-pointers.

Josh Lewenberg

32-19 Raptors after 12 minutes. Bucks shooting 50% but have committed 4 turnovers, meanwhile Raps are 6/11 from deep. Vasquez/Lowry: 17pts

Josh Lewenberg

At next year's Fanapolooza I'd like to see a before and after pic of the guy who just won 12 month's worth of poutine

Mike Ganter

With that Lowry three, Raps are now 6-for-10 from distance a night after they hit 12 in Detroit.

Josh Lewenberg

Brendan Shanahan sitting courtside, next to Tim Leiweke… but most importantly, some poor soul just won poutine for a year #Fanapolooza

Josh Lewenberg

Getting a spot start for the resting DeRozan, Vasquez has hit his first 3 shots, all treys. Raps are 5/9 from deep, lead 25-17

Eric Smith

Shanahan, courtside (centre court) - beside Leiweke - taking in the #Raptors and #Bucks. #RTZ #MapleLeafs

Eric Koreen

Based on Twitter analytics, I should spend less time working on bad jokes and more time on my photos of #bannerz

Mike Ganter

Amir Johnson working his way back to game shape, but his behind-the-back-pass game is already top notch.

Eric Koreen

behind-the-back assist from Amir: drink.

Josh Lewenberg

Ross matched his career-high in assists (4) a couple times in the last 3 games, he's halfway there 6 minutes in tonight

Eric Smith

the #raptors unveil the 2013-2014 Atlantic Division championship banner. #rtz keek.com/!KQiTdab

Josh Lewenberg

Been impressed with Ross' unselfish play of late. Looking for his teammates more than ever before. Another sign of growth

Eric Koreen

Raps up 7-0 early. The power of #bannerz sustains them.

Eric Koreen

WELCOME TO THE ATLANTIC DIVISION WINNING JUNGLE

Paul Jones

#Raptors unveil divisional banner #rtz http://t.co/PxsrQZ5avu

Eric Koreen

That banner ceremony had the bonus of reminding me that Nelly's "Number One" was a thing.

Eric Koreen

#bannerz #rtz http://t.co/LijOTYRvpF

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan to address the fans before banner unveiling

Eric Smith

'it' is about to be unveiled. #rtz #raptors #banner http://t.co/5E2u475dqk

Josh Lewenberg

Last night Raptors unveiled a division banner: Apr 18, 2007 - a 122-119 loss to 35-win Sixers team, missing opportunity to eclipse 47 wins

Eric Koreen

Somebody's about to have a pal. #RTZ http://t.co/Hi4rezDtb3

Payal Doshi

.@Amir Johnson is quite creative when it comes to skipping. Folks he's got skipping on one foot down pat. #rtz http://t.co/1JQFNqPcNm

Josh Lewenberg

Looks like tonight's "raising of the banner" will be more of an "unveiling of the already raised banner" http://t.co/wZTAoWNJbV
