Bebe puts back a Bruno miss; Boy Bands Rule!

Eric Smith

After opening Q4 on an 18-2 run, Maccabi Haifa has been outscored 14-4. #Raptors lead 88-83 w/ 1:01 to go in the game. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

You can’t stop Bebe, you can only hope to contain him.

Josh Lewenberg

Bruno corner 3 rims out, Bebe follows with the put-back #WeTheBrazil

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe dominating. Raptors up five. (Didn’t expect to write that)

Josh Lewenberg

Sweet pass from James Johnson finds Bebe for the wide-open dunk. He blocked his 3rd shot of the game moments earlier. 84-83 Raps, 1:55 left

Eric Koreen

Hickerson air-balls it. He's so YOLO it huts.

Ryan Wolstat

Will Cherry salvages his night with a huge three, then Bruno and Bebe get a double block, but Haifa regains lead. Bebe dunk follows.

Doug Smith

Will Cherry makes a 3 to put #Raptors ahead;GUARANTEE THAT CONTRACT!

Eric Koreen

WILL CHERRY REDEMPTION THREE-POINTER

Josh Lewenberg

Fairly obvious observation: Greivis Vasquez doesn't seem enthused by the idea of losing to Maccabi Haifa. He has 5 of Raps' 7 pts in the 4th

Eric Smith

.#Raptors vs Maccabi Haifa...tied at end of Q1. TOR up 10 at half. TOR up 11 at end of Q3. TOR once up 20. 3:12 left, MAC leads 81-79

Ryan Wolstat

Swaggy V not going to let the Raptors lose this one.

Eric Koreen

Hickerson just finished an alley-oop and picked up a tech celebrating. I think I love this cat.

Eric Smith

the crowd is buzzing right now for Maccabi Haifa. up 4 on TOR with 3:49 to go

Ryan Wolstat

Rene Rougeau’s pass looked like it was thrown by a Rougeau Brother

Eric Smith

TOR has 2 points in 6:55 min. Maccabi Haifa has outscored the #Raptors 18-2 in Q4. TOR (once up 20) trails 79-74. 5:05 left. #RTZ

Doug Smith

Maccabi Haifa up 5 on #Raptors with 5 mins left; history: In 9 games vs. NBA teams all-time Haifa 0-9 and average margin of defeat is 30.

Josh Lewenberg

Bruno back in, Bebe also set to re-enter. Raptors trail by 5 with 5:10 left to play

Paul Jones

#Raptors lost to Maccabi Tel Aviv and @Anthony Parker in Oct 2005 by 2 pts 105-103...should be an interesting finish #rtz

Eric Smith

16-0 run by Maccabi Haifa to start Q4! They lead the #Raptors 77-72

Ryan Wolstat

Never mind, Bruno’s coming in to rally the Raptors.

Eric Koreen

Leroy Hickerson is now taunting the Raptors' bench.

Paul Jones

after 3 FT's Maccabi Haifa leads 75-72 ..a 14-0 run to start 4th #Raptors #rtz

Doug Smith

And foul No. 44 is Cherry fouling some little-ish guy shooting a 3-pointer. I (heart) pre-season basketball

Josh Lewenberg

Raptor field goals: 27. Raptor assists: 12. Raptor turnovers: 24.

Doug Smith

72-72 here and I'm thinking the Will Cherry era might coming to an ignominious end for #Raptors.

Eric Smith

The #Raptors ...once up 20...have seen Maccabi Haifa tie the game at 72. TOR has given up 28 PTS on 23 turnovers. 72-72. 8:31 left #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

Will Cherry has not helped his cause much tonight.

Josh Lewenberg

11-0 Maccabi run to begin the 4thQ and, just like that, we're tied up at 72

Paul Jones

11-0 run by Maccabi Haifa has tied game at 72-72 with 8:31 in 4th qtr #rtz..Toronto led by 20 at one point in game ...

Ryan Wolstat

Another Maccabi upset in making? Haifa ties game at 72 vs. Raptors. Think fans wanting to see Bruno/Bebe will be out of luck, given score

Eric Koreen

It's 72-72. I don't think Will Cherry will be making this team.

Paul Jones

#Raptors with 22 turnovers and Maccabi Haifa has cut lead to 72-70 #rtz Dwane Casey not a happy looking guy

Doug Smith

At least there've been 42 fouls called in 39 minutes so we know the whistles work for #Raptors-Maccabi Haifa

Doug Smith

MT @Eric Koreen: Dude has been chirping the media. He's not going to like it when @smithraps eviscerates him. (It's pre-season, gimme time)

Paul Jones

#Raptors lead Maccabi Haifa 72-61 after 3 qtrs #rtz

Eric Koreen

Dude has been chirping the media here for a while. He's not going to like it when @smithraps eviscerates him.

Doug Smith

#Raptors 72, Maccabi Haifa 61 after three; at least I think that's what they said when they woke me from a nap

Eric Smith

End of Q3 the #Raptors lead Maccabi Haifa 72-61. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Greg Stiemsma is taking the 18 footer without hesitation.

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe trying to stay warm during timeouts in case he comes back in, doing a variety of CoreX-type exercises.

Ryan Wolstat

Fine, I’ll just tell Terrence after the game that the fans are demanding a full, no doubt 360 layup next time.

Ryan Wolstat

Fair, but 280 looked weird to write. RT @outsidethenba: @Ryan Wolstat closer to 360 than 180!

Payal Doshi

Me! RT @NehaSoneji: Now, let’s do a quick round of intros before we get started. Who’s out there? #SAWSports

Eric Smith

5:37 to go in Q3 and the #Raptors lead Maccabi Haifa 62-49

Ryan Wolstat

Vince used to do 360 layups, Ross can do them as well, but didn’t do the full 360 on that one.

Ryan Wolstat

Terrence Ross does a 180 layup. Not sure we’ve seen that since the Vince Carter days.

Eric Koreen

Terrence Ross with a 360 lay-up. Best non-Bebe thing about this game.

Ryan Wolstat

Told you, it’s a thing. RT @Eric Koreen: On point jersey, although it should really say "Graham." http://t.co/SwYXbDsHDq

Eric Koreen

On point jersey, although it should really say "Graham." http://t.co/szLGmgQY6G

Ryan Wolstat

Drake 416 Raptors jerseys are officially a thing.

Josh Lewenberg

Half ends w/ the Raptors on top 47-37. Not surprisingly they've outscored Maccabi 32-14 in the paint, shooting 1/12 from 3, 18/22 inside arc

Doug Smith

#Raptors 47, Maccabi Haifa 37 at halftime; yes, there is a whole other half to go!!!!

Ryan Wolstat

This game is only 24 minutes from being over. That’s a good thing. Raptors lead 47-37 at the half.

Paul Jones

halftime and #Raptors lead Maccabi Haifa 47-37 #rtz

Eric Smith

At the half the #Raptors lead Maccabi Haifa 47-37. TOR shot 52.8% FG (with 13 turnovers). MAC: 37.8% FG. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

Terrence Ross gets bailed out trying to do And 1 Mixtape moves. Why Terrence, why even try that? Still lots to learn.

Paul Jones

Jeff Allen doing some work for Maccabi Haifa...he has 18 of the team's 35...46-35 #Raptors 43.6 remaining 1st half #rtz

Eric Smith

Maccabi Haifa's Jeff Allen (played at Virginia Tech) has 18 of his team's 37 PTS. #Raptors lead 46-37 with :43.6 sec left in 1st half #RTZ

Doug Smith

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

Josh Lewenberg

2 defensive possessions, 2 Bebe blocks. Glimpse of the rim protector he could become.

Eric Koreen

Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe. I'm sorry for telling everyone to not watch this game.

Ryan Wolstat

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.

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe block and a crafty lay-up/three-point play opportunity for Greivis Vasquez on the other end. Raptors largest lead, 45-31

Ryan Wolstat

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.

Paul Jones

I gotta give it up to #Raptor fans. Pretty good crowd on a Wednesday night in preseason against an international team...good on ya #rtz

Eric Koreen

Thanks, Doug Ford, for bringing normalcy back.

Eric Koreen

Bruno tip in. So early-October.

Josh Lewenberg

15+ feet of Brazilian wingspan #BrunoAndBebe

Ryan Wolstat

It’s Brazilian night at the ACC, with Bruno and Bebe on the court at the same time for the first time.

Doug Smith

Bebe, Bruno, Greivis, Greg and Jordan. Latest Boy Band or current Raptors on the floor?

Eric Koreen

Greivis & Jordan & Bruno & Bebe & Greg.

Eric Smith

36-27, #Raptors lead Maccabi Haifa with 5:54 to go til half. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

Believe Bebe is first Raptor to wear No. 92.

Doug Smith

Bebe Nogueira about to check in for #Raptors. Let yet another era begin!

Paul Jones

guys looking for last roster spot with #Raptors all on the floor now and Hamilton has fiound Stiemsma on last 2 possesions 32-27 Tor #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe to the scorers table, about to get his first taste of the NBA pre-season (sorta)

Eric Koreen

Bebe is coming in, y'all <3

Ryan Wolstat

Stiemsma scores off pass from Hamilton. Cherry on floor too. Everything is happening

Eric Smith

James Johnson off the bench w/ 6 PTS on 2/2 FG. #Raptors shooting 54.5% FG and leading Maccabi Haifa 28-23. Q2, 8:43. #RTZ

Eric Smith

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.

Ryan Wolstat

This game is sub-optimal. Pre-season can’t end soon enough.

Eric Koreen

I want Bebe. No, I DEMAND Bebe.

Josh Lewenberg

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

Doug Smith

#Raptors 19, Maccabi Haifa 19 after one; not one for the Hall of Fame. If you're going to watch Royals-Giants, don't change your mind

Eric Smith

late bucket from Hansbrough ties the game at 19 just prior to the end of Q1. TOR - 50% FG but 8 turnovers. Maccabi Haifa - 40.9% FG. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

We're at 19s after a quarter here. Don't turn on this game.

Eric Koreen

pre-season Lowry 2-for-1 attempt! Drink!

Eric Smith

little change since last timeout ... 2:49 to go ... #raptors up 14-8 on maccabi haifa #RTZ

Paul Jones

So far #Raptors d has held Maccabi Haifa to 25% and forced 6 TO leading to 4 pts. 14-8 Tor with 2:48 1st #rtz

Eric Smith

5:56 to go in Q1, #Raptors shooting 60% FG and leading Maccabi Haifa 12-8. Jeff Allen leading all scorers w/ 6. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

This game sucks.

Ryan Wolstat

Years ago, the Raptors fell to Maccabi Tel Aviv. Then, they signed the Israeli league’s best player, Anthony Parker.

Josh Lewenberg

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

Doug Smith

Appropriate moment of silence for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and those who bravely serve us before Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game

Eric Koreen

A moment of silence observed in memory of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo before Israeli and Canadian anthems at Raptors game.
