What don't kill you make you stronger! Believe that!

Jordan Hamilton

Don’t be discouraged by opposition. That’s a sign that things have shifted in your favor. Fight for yourself when nobody else will! #Strive4

Ryan Wolstat

Even Schwartz's has Nash fever http://t.co/7jarHejsvM

Paul Jones

#Raptors def Knicks 83-80 hold NY to 11/45 fg in 2nd half. Montreal stood up tonight!! Felicitations!! #rtz #nbacanadaseries #WetheNorth

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors close out the pre-season with a 7-1 record, an NBA best, which doesn't mean "one hill of beans": tsn.ca/talent/lewenbe…

Greivis Vasquez

Gracias a Dios se acabo la pre temporada.. YA va a empezar lo bueno.. Le Tengo alergia a la pre temporada y la summer league. #TeamVasquez

Ryan Wolstat

One more time if you don’t have Nash fatigue, Sherman Hamilton and Amar’e Stoudemire drop some insight: torontosun.com/2014/10/24/fro…

Ryan Wolstat

“Was (Acy) talking out there?” DeRozan: “Man, Q’s always talking out there. He’s a jump shooter now."

Josh Lewenberg

Oui, oui RT @AndyMc81 Mon ami @Josh Lewenberg joins me at 11:03pm from Montreal hot off #Raptors 83-80 win. Listen www2.tsn.ca/toronto/listen/

Ryan Wolstat

"They got loud. A lot of time I couldn't hear coach, I couldn't hear our guards running plays. Just kudos to the fans.” Johnson on crowd

Ryan Wolstat

“Different roles for different players, if coach is happy, I’m happy,” James Johnson

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry on the crowd: "Unbelievable. I mean here and Vancouver, I just think it's crazy."

Ryan Wolstat

"Development is over, it's about production. Especially in the paint and on the boards.” - Dwane Casey on Valanciunas (and the others)

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "Exhibition, you can take this record and - I can't say what I want to say. But exhibition doesn't mean anything"

Eric Koreen

One last link for the day: On the impact Steve Nash had on Kevin Pangos, and many other Canadian basketball players: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/10/24/is-…

Ryan Wolstat

Casey said he wasn’t trying to show up Knicks by playing starters at end, wanted to play them 28-30 minutes

Josh Lewenberg

Casey praised James Johnson post-game, said despite not scoring it was his best exhibition outing thanks in large part to his D on Melo

Ryan Wolstat

Pre-season highlight could be Dikembe in Raptors room chatting with his old Rockets guy Lowry

Doug Smith

Raptors win by 3, OT averted, pre-season over!!! Salut!!!!

Terrence Ross

The fans in #Montreal are awesome! Had a great time! #raptors #Canada

Josh Lewenberg

Masai, from earlier: "We don't get a trophy for this?"

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors: kings of the preseason. They'll finish exhibition 7-1, best record in NBA, matching franchise best for most wins in the fall

Eric Smith

the #Raptors win by 3 and finish the pre season with a 7-1 record. Now, wipe that out, and let's play the games for REAL. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

20,738 here for the game

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas bothered Aldrich with his length, forcing bad shot, then came back, posted him up and scored easily on a nice move.

Josh Lewenberg

5 mins remaining. Casey going with all 5 starters down the stretch, as promised. Knicks, on the other hand, primarily with subs. Raps up 5

Ryan Wolstat

Think Lowry’s about to introduce Montreal to KLOE

Ryan Wolstat

Quincy Acy has been a force tonight. Yes, it is true. Jason Smith better not get comfortable with that starting spot.

Doug Smith

4th quarter minutes for Raptors starting five; Casey said he'd stretch 'em out a little bit

Ryan Wolstat

If James Johnson is happy in this role and doesn’t fret when the points/shots don’t come, Raptors far better than last year’s version.

Paul Jones

#Raptors hold Knicks to 3/19 fg in 3rd qtr. Lead by 5 pts 68-63 with 9:11 to go in game here in Mtl #rtz #wethenorth

Josh Lewenberg

Has slowed down Melo, switched off on Amare. RT @Ryan Wolstat James Johnson has been one of the better Raptors, despite not scoring a point

Ryan Wolstat

James Johnson has been one of the better Raptors tonight, despite not scoring a point.

Eric Smith

Q4 starts in Montreal with the #Raptors leading the #Knicks 63-57

Ryan Wolstat

The Knicks ran the Isosceles Triangle in the third quarter. The result was 16% shooting (3-for-19).

Doug Smith

Raptors up 63-57 on Knicks after 3; trying to find scissors to use to cut down nets when pre-season ends

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors held the Knicks to 3/19 shooting in the third quarter, besting them 14-7 on the boards and outscoring them 25-11. They lead 63-57

Ryan Wolstat

Can you have the sophomore jinx in the pre-season? Because Timmy Jr. looks turrible

Josh Lewenberg

Well then RT @Ryan Wolstat The Raptors have never lost to the Knicks in the pre-season (8-0).

Ryan Wolstat

The Raptors have never lost to the Knicks in the pre-season (8-0).

Eric Smith

Ladies (and normal, open-minded men), if you haven't seen this...enjoy! vimeo.com/109827317?from… - Great work by the @FCKH8 folks.

Josh Lewenberg

Fisher not happy, wants to talk it over. Knicks losing their cool & I think I just caught a rare in-game Casey smirk. Raps on 21-3 run/up 10

Eric Smith

Can't spell montreal without a "T"

Ryan Wolstat

Prigioni gets a technical. All of the technical fouls are happening!

Josh Lewenberg

Angry/engaged JV > other versions. 9pts/3reb in 3rdQ after 2pts/0reb in 1st half. Think message was received. Credit Casey for sending it

Josh Lewenberg

17-2 run after another DeRozan slam. MTL is loving it. Raps up 55-48

Doug Smith

#Raptors on a 17-2 run. Who do they think they are, Maccabi Haifa?

Eric Smith

17-2 #Raptors run. up 7 ... 7:15 to go in Q3

Ryan Wolstat

Ex-Raptor Haywoode Workman is getting an earful from Raptors tonight. Letting them play. JV latest. DeRozan wanted and-one too

Ryan Wolstat

Correction, 10-2 run. Now 13-2 run.

Josh Lewenberg

We've seen former Raptor Haywoode Workman and the rest of the officiating crew correct a few calls this evening. Pre-season for refs too

Ryan Wolstat

! RT @Bill Oram: Asked where Steve Nash will rank among point guards in history, Kobe said, "That's ESPN's job to rank people."

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan caps off 8-2 run by tearing thru the lane for the dunk. Was very frustrated at the end of the 2ndQ. Light switch on for he & JV both

Ryan Wolstat

10-0 run for Raptors out of break capped by DeRozan dunk forces Knicks’ Fisher to call timeout.

Josh Lewenberg

JV back on the floor to begin 2nd half after spending most of 1st on bench. Goes straight to offensive glass for a putback on 1st possession

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan was sitting on a chair, looking angry, shaking his head, possibly muttering before post-half warmups

Doug Smith

Sure, they may have stuff like this at the Bell Centre but NOTHING FOR BON JOVI! http://t.co/uCvy4l7Xsi

Josh Lewenberg

Knicks up on Raptors 46-38 at intermission in MTL. Halftime coverage coming up on @TSN1050Radio

Ryan Wolstat

Knicks lead 46-38 at the half. Melo with 17 DeRozan with nine.

Doug Smith

Knicks 46, Raptors 38 at half; only 24 minutes of the pre-season left. Getting all misty here

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan lucky not to get a T. Waved arms at ref and swore.

Ryan Wolstat

After good start, DeRozan has struggled to beat New York defence. Shumpert bottling him up.

Josh Lewenberg

Worth noting: No JV since midway through 1stQ. Casey was not pleased with his effort on the glass, giving up 3 offensive boards to Dalembert

Josh Lewenberg

Melo channelling KG, having fun w/ Patterson. Pat steps on sideline, shoots anyway, Melo swats it, Pat gets it back/shoots again, Melo swat

Ryan Wolstat

Dikembe just gave Paul Jones and Sherman Hamilton a finger wag as he walked away.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptor alum Muggsy Bogues here as well

Ryan Wolstat

One observation compared to past two times here: More Raptors gear, less Knicks gear now that Raptors are a good team.

Doug Smith

An aggrieved Kyle Lowry picks up a technical foul; most "regular season moment" of the pre-season so far.

Ryan Wolstat

T for Lowry. Didn’t like a foul call. Montreal crowd boos the refs like seasoned pros.

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe sighting. Raps getting little rim protection, really struggling on boards. Opportunity for Nogueira here. Haven't seen JV since 1stQ

Paul Jones

Hanging with Mutumbo and @Sherman Hamilton http://t.co/6oKeJOCrjt

Josh Lewenberg

Mutombo jumping on the Raps broadcast following the timeout. Should be a fun interview.

Ryan Wolstat

Dikembe Mutombo here. Crowd cheers. Dikembe wags finger, crowd roars.

Doug Smith

Quincy Acy banks in a 17-footer; if that doesn't say NBA pre-season (Quincy Acy shooting 17 footers!!!??!!!), not sure what does

Josh Lewenberg

Standing O for Dikembe Mutombo, who's in the house sitting centre court.

Doug Smith

Standing O here when Dikembe Mutombo introduced, Masai Ujiri glances at boxscore and races over with contract.

Ryan Wolstat

“This kid just wouldn’t stop running” on Steve Nash from the beginning to the end feat. 2 guys who know him well: torontosun.com/2014/10/24/fro…

Josh Lewenberg

Whole bunch of air balls. These rims regulation?

Doug Smith

#Raptors-Knicks 24-24 after 1; it ain't Maccabi Haifa but it's not bad. Raps give up 10 2nd chance points, Casey Head Explosion Watch is on

Josh Lewenberg

Tied after 1Q as Bell Centre siren sounds. DeRozan leads the Raps with 9 points. Melo has 14 of New York's 24. Knicks 10-0 in 2nd-chance pts

Eric Smith

I'm fighting tears just looking at the pics. #Canada, you rock. m.huffpost.com/ca/entry/60435…

Doug Smith

Totally classic and great that the end-of-quarter buzzer at the Bell Centre is a hockey siren. That should be a Canada thing!

Ryan Wolstat

Quincy Acy balling. DeRozan and Casey said they are happy that he is getting an opportunity with Knicks. DeMar said he’d talk some trash.

Ryan Wolstat

Also possible RT @ItBegins2012: @Ryan Wolstat that will be kobe on 34 percent from floor

Ryan Wolstat

Melo might lead league in scoring. #hottake #alloftheshots

Ryan Wolstat

Someone who would know mentioned that he didn’t think DeMar DeRozan could be guarded 1-on-1. Certainly no Knicks appear up to the challenge.

Ryan Wolstat

YES! The hockey noises are back for substitutions. Maybe my favourite part of the Montreal games.

Ryan Wolstat

Derek Fisher gets a technical. Didn’t take him long.

Josh Lewenberg

Only 1/3 of New York's former Raptor trio active today. Knicks resting Calderon/Bargnani. Acy comes in, knocks down his 1st shot

Josh Lewenberg

Dalembert has beat JV on a bunch of boxouts early, resulting in 3 offensive rebounds. Raptors bench not pleased, Hansbrough in for him

Josh Lewenberg

Asked Calderon what it's been like playing with Melo pre-game. Jose: "He's pretty good". That he is. Anthony has 9 of the Knicks' 12 pts

Ryan Wolstat

Apparently insane lineups getting in here. Late arriving crowd, should fill up.

Ryan Wolstat

I feel that the Jason Smith experiment is not going to go well for the Knicks (and I don’t even mind the guy).

Doug Smith

Shane Larkin of Knicks (who I have yet to call Barry) just hit a shot "pour trois" according to Bell Centre PA.

Josh Lewenberg

Amir on the break, "merci beaucoup" Kyle Lowry. Raptors looking to run on the Knicks early

Ryan Wolstat

Amped up crowd here again. My third time doing this game in Montreal. Thankfully not a monsoon like last time.

Paul Jones

Great atmosphere here at #bellcentre for #Raptors Knicks #rtz #nbacanadaseries Canada loves its hoops

Josh Lewenberg

Masai said he'll huddle up w/ coaches after tonight's game to determine who wins 15th spot. Deadline for decision is tomorrow before 5pm

Ryan Wolstat

Masai played down Bruno/Bebe to D-League talk. Will happen, but not nearly as often as people think. Would rather have them here.

Ryan Wolstat

Tried to get Masai to spill beans on final cuts. Wouldn’t bite, did say would be based on need then caught himself Smart $ still on Stiemsma
