Bebe puts back a Bruno miss; Boy Bands Rule!
You can’t stop Bebe, you can only hope to contain him.
Bebe dominating. Raptors up five. (Didn’t expect to write that)
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
Hickerson air-balls it. He's so YOLO it huts.
Will Cherry salvages his night with a huge three, then Bruno and Bebe get a double block, but Haifa regains lead. Bebe dunk follows.
WILL CHERRY REDEMPTION THREE-POINTER
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
Swaggy V not going to let the Raptors lose this one.
Hickerson just finished an alley-oop and picked up a tech celebrating. I think I love this cat.
the crowd is buzzing right now for Maccabi Haifa. up 4 on TOR with 3:49 to go
Rene Rougeau’s pass looked like it was thrown by a Rougeau Brother
Bruno back in, Bebe also set to re-enter. Raptors trail by 5 with 5:10 left to play
Never mind, Bruno’s coming in to rally the Raptors.
Leroy Hickerson is now taunting the Raptors' bench.
And foul No. 44 is Cherry fouling some little-ish guy shooting a 3-pointer. I (heart) pre-season basketball
Raptor field goals: 27. Raptor assists: 12. Raptor turnovers: 24.
Will Cherry has not helped his cause much tonight.
11-0 Maccabi run to begin the 4thQ and, just like that, we're tied up at 72
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
It's 72-72. I don't think Will Cherry will be making this team.
Dude has been chirping the media here for a while. He's not going to like it when @smithraps eviscerates him.
Greg Stiemsma is taking the 18 footer without hesitation.
Stiemsma jumper. Drink.
Bebe trying to stay warm during timeouts in case he comes back in, doing a variety of CoreX-type exercises.
Fine, I’ll just tell Terrence after the game that the fans are demanding a full, no doubt 360 layup next time.
Vince used to do 360 layups, Ross can do them as well, but didn’t do the full 360 on that one.
Terrence Ross does a 180 layup. Not sure we’ve seen that since the Vince Carter days.
Terrence Ross with a 360 lay-up. Best non-Bebe thing about this game.
On point jersey, although it should really say "Graham." http://t.co/szLGmgQY6G
Drake 416 Raptors jerseys are officially a thing.
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
This game is only 24 minutes from being over. That’s a good thing. Raptors lead 47-37 at the half.
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.
