Terrence Ross gets bailed out trying to do And 1 Mixtape moves. Why Terrence, why even try that? Still lots to learn.
Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe Nogueira. If that doesn't say NBA pre-season, I don't know what does
2 defensive possessions, 2 Bebe blocks. Glimpse of the rim protector he could become.
Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe. I'm sorry for telling everyone to not watch this game.
Casey did say Bebe has great hands and rolls well so maybe one day they’ll implement that into offence. Better hands than JV for sure.
Bebe block and a crafty lay-up/three-point play opportunity for Greivis Vasquez on the other end. Raptors largest lead, 45-31
Bebe swat to go with his steal. He wastes some effort putting up hands for ball though too often. Nobody is giving it to him.
Thanks, Doug Ford, for bringing normalcy back.
Bruno tip in. So early-October.
It’s Brazilian night at the ACC, with Bruno and Bebe on the court at the same time for the first time.
Bebe, Bruno, Greivis, Greg and Jordan. Latest Boy Band or current Raptors on the floor?
Greivis & Jordan & Bruno & Bebe & Greg.
Believe Bebe is first Raptor to wear No. 92.
Bebe to the scorers table, about to get his first taste of the NBA pre-season (sorta)
Bebe is coming in, y'all <3
Bebe coming in
Stiemsma scores off pass from Hamilton. Cherry on floor too. Everything is happening
TOR very sloppy with the ball thus far tonight. Pre season! 10 turnovers for TOR w/ 9:45 still to go in the 1st half.
This game is sub-optimal. Pre-season can’t end soon enough.
I want Bebe. No, I DEMAND Bebe.
Raptors/Maccabi Haifa are tied at 19 after 1Q. Raps have committed 8 turnovers, shooting 0/6 from beyond the arc, 9/12 inside it
We're at 19s after a quarter here. Don't turn on this game.
pre-season Lowry 2-for-1 attempt! Drink!
This game sucks.
Years ago, the Raptors fell to Maccabi Tel Aviv. Then, they signed the Israeli league’s best player, Anthony Parker.
Maccabi Haifa has been outscored 313-228 (-85) in 3 exhibition games vs NBA competition this month (WAS, POR, SAC). Only lost by 6 to Wiz
Appropriate moment of silence for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and those who bravely serve us before Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game
A moment of silence observed in memory of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo before Israeli and Canadian anthems at Raptors game.
Bebe says he doesn't mind his rabbit hat but would prefer the pink backpacks last year's rookies got. Said his hair doesn't fit in the hat
Bebe says Lowry is responsible for the Raptors' rookies new hats. He & Bruno have rabbits, Will Cherry has a wolf http://t.co/Jc5KWU6OIc
Bebe said yesterday marked six weeks since the injury so he is back right on schedule (though two weeks ahead of worst-case).
Bebe also said time in Spain got him used to bench: "Sometimes, the five man got hurt, coach put the shooting guard in the post."
Be forewarned: Bebe is going to be in 50% of my ledes this year. Sorry in advance.
Bebe on working with McKechnie: “He’s an amazing guy. An amazing professional. We are friends. I hope I’ll have that friendship all my life”
Bebe is back a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. A bit of a surprise Not expected to impact Stiemsma status much as Stiemsma has experience
Everyone is available for the Raptors tonight, including Lucas Nogueira, who has been out w/ hamstring injury. Casey may try to get him in
Bebe (hamstring) is available tonight. Huzzah!
Bebe on board. Nogueira back for Raptors toonight
So it's weird to tweet out sports links today, so feel free to ignore, obviously.
As of now, I'd be surprised if the Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game is canceled tonight. But these things can and do change quickly.
LRT: four "fare inspectors" in bright yellow jackets got on my train at bloor about 15 minutes ago.
As of now, Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game is still a go.
Raptors regulars may be on a cap again tonight but Casey says they could get into a more regular rotation in Friday's preseason finale
Ottawa, stay strong. Canadians...unite.
"Our biggest challenge tonight is ourselves," Casey says, hoping his team is able to stay disciplined/run their sets vs an unknown opponent
No word bout whether or not game will be canceled tonight because of what is happening in Ottawa. I'd be surprised if there is no discussion
DeRozan asked how his Hebrew is ahead of tonight's game vs Maccabi Haifa: "Its alright" Really? "Nah, I'm lyin', I ain't got nothing"
I saw a riot last time I was in Montreal for Raptors-Knicks and did some interesting stuff while in news, but nothing like Ottawa situation
DeMar was also asked how his Hebrew is: "It's all right."
Casey said he will probably use Friday's game to approximate a regular rotation.
Per Woj, Raptors not one of teams to vote down lottery reform. But talking to various team personnel yesterday, Raptors had mixed feelings
(Possible I inverted the intended hashtag. But since I was the first to tweet it, nobody will ever know! Let's pretend it was purposeful!)
20 years later and Raptors broadcast sked is bigger mess than ever.
… a series of stories over the next few days. Hopefully you guys enjoy it.
… to look back and see how we got to this point, and try to figure out where things will go in the future. Anyway, we'll be rolling out...
So, on and off for the last few months, I've been working on a series of stories on the 20th season of the NBA in Canada. It's been fun ...
Raptors-Knicks in Montreal not yet a sellout. Bloom off that rose in Montreal, or sick of same matchup?
Bean post game!
