Tyler Hansbrough gets a flagrant. Let's go home.

Josh Lewenberg

With this (truly bizarre) victory, Raps will win the Atlantic Division, which (aside from hanging a shiny new banner) means little-nothing

Payal Doshi

Tyler & Tarik get into a scuffle after the last possession but high-five it out. #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Seems Johnson's 3 has been changed to a 2. All part of the JJ conspiracy, I presume.

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson hits a corner 3-ball to put the Raptors up by 16, their biggest lead. JJ's 18 points are his most since Feb. 21

Eric Koreen

Boss checks out with 8 and 7 in 18 minutes. Byron Scott is doing some interesting things.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan's first FG comes over 3 minutes into the 4th quarter. He was 0-for-7 prior, though he does have 7 rebounds and 7 assists.

Eric Koreen

DeRozan misses a vicious put-back dunk. He's had a lot of interesting missed dunks this year.

Eric Smith

8:55 to go in q4, DeRozan gets his first FG of the night. Toronto up 10 on LAL

Eric Koreen

Raptors get an inbounding violation after a Lakers basket. Hope that helps with your #sadraptorsbingo card

Eric Koreen

The Canadians shoot just 7-for-22, but Pangos, Wiltjer and Gonzaga are on to the Elite 8.

Josh Lewenberg

Hey, the Raptors made the Lakers look like the Lakers in the 3rd, so that's something. Raps outscored LA 25-18 in the Q, lead by 5 into 4th

Eric Smith

Much better q3 for TOR. 7 point swing. Down 2 at half, up 5 going to q4. 71-66 #rtz

Eric Koreen

Raps up 71-66 after 3. DeMar is 0-for-6, but is doing the occasional other thing.

Eric Smith

what I have theorized for yrs, confirmed tonite: if not for NBA rule that prevented TOR from picking #1, they were gonna draft Iverson in 96

Eric Koreen

Ross has 10 points in third, and just made a nice read in transition for a Vasquez 3.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors were 16-for-24 in the paint in first half, 1-for-11 outside it

Eric Smith

Addressing the media in Toronto. Part of another 20th anniversary celebration. imisiahthomas instagram.com/p/0wHqqYI2zI/

Ryan Wolstat

Monroe and Valanciunas would be a defensive disaster. Monroe and DeRozan would be an offensive disaster. So, no, can’t see that happening.

Ryan Wolstat

Lots of love for Monroe but he’s not the answer. Need a 2-way PF …. Millsap or Horford (he can play either spot) would be the dream.

Ryan Wolstat

Ed doesn’t have an offensive game, but offence isn’t exactly an issue for the Raptors. He’d help, but ideally they need a star 2-way PF.

Josh Lewenberg

Anyway, Raptors trail Lakers by 2 at the break. We're going to talk about this mess on @TSN1050Radio. Join us!

Ryan Wolstat

Would they consider bringing Ed Davis back? Leads Lakers in OR B% and TRB% and PER and VORP. Would lead Raptors in most of those too.

Josh Lewenberg

Williams dribbles out the clock from half court. This time I legitimately have no idea whether they're Louing or booing.

Eric Smith

Better q2 for the raps. But la up 27-17 on the glass and leading TOR at the half, 48-46

Eric Koreen

Lakers up 48-46 at the half. Good news: Lou went right.

Eric Koreen

She said yes. At least someone's happy tonight. RT @iananywhere: CHEERLEADER PROPOSAL ALERT!!!! #RTZ

Eric Smith

One of the all time greats. RIP to Hot Rod Hundley. #JAZZ

Josh Lewenberg

With 2 mins left in the half, 41 of Toronto's 44 pts have come in the paint or at the line. Lou 3-ball is their only bucket outside paint

Michael Grange

This James Johnson guy keeps making all these exciting, eye-catching plays ....

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson is into double figures for the 1st time in almost a month. He's got 11 pts, 2 reb, 2 ast on a perfect 4/4 shooting in 11 mins

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors have been 1 of the worst rebounding teams in NBA all season, it is perhaps team’s biggest flaw. Wasn’t addressed will be in summer.

Ryan Wolstat

Nice to see most of the founders of the Raptors recognized. Also nice to see @Doug Smith back in the house.

Eric Koreen

Raps on run with James Johnson on floor. Must be coincidence.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors first bucket outside the paint, a Lou 3-ball, comes 16 minutes in. They had missed their first 9 attempts.

Eric Koreen

The Lakers did not scout the play where they set one screen for Lou and he takes a three pointer on the left elbow.

Josh Lewenberg

Ed Davis grabs the Lakers' 10th offensive board and 20th rebound. The Raptors only have 9 rebounds as a team.

Josh Lewenberg

After 12 minutes, Raptors are shooting 6-for-10 in the paint, 0-for-6 outside it. Related: JV and Amir are 6-for-8, rest of team is 0-for-8

Eric Smith

TOR goes to q2 trailing 24-17. Lakers owned q1 in the glass & w/ their D. Lots of game still for the raps to get right. GOTTA pick it up!

Josh Lewenberg

Lakers lead 24-17 after 1Q. They've attempted 9 more shots than Toronto thanks in large part to SEVEN offensive rebounds. So, yeah, not good

Eric Koreen

Raptors trail 24-17 after a quarter. They're playing quite poorly. The Lakers are on pace for 28 offensive rebounds.

Eric Smith

LA has 7 offensive rebounds. 10-0 2nd chance points. Raps down 10. Crowd booing. And it's hard to blame em. Gotta play harder.

Josh Lewenberg

Lakers lead is 10 late in the 1st Q and here come some boos.

Eric Koreen

Hey, it's Toronto Raptors forward James Johnson.

Michael Grange

Raps have really taken charge here in the early going ...

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors don't attempt their first 3-ball until 3:20 mark of 1stQ. All 6 of their FGs have come in the paint, all from Amir/JV, all assisted

Michael Grange

Vancouver's Rob Sacre in the game for the Lakers. Feel free to yell out the Gonzaga score to him ...

Eric Smith

Sorry if I sounded like Taylor swift in the last part of that last tweet, haha

Josh Lewenberg

Good to see the Raptors continuing to do their part to keep the Linsanity dream alive.

Mike Ganter

Just sat down at a bar in Cleveland and one of the TV'a had OHL Petes/Generals on?

Eric Smith

You're biting on up fakes by Ryan kelly (!!) & gettin out rebounded (8-3) by Ed Davis & co. That ain't D-Casey folks. Players gotta play!

Josh Lewenberg

Lakers have 5 offensive rebounds in just over 5 mins to begin the game. All 9 of Raps' pts have come in paint or at FT line. LA by 4 early

Eric Koreen

Hope you had "rebounding" in tonight's game of What Will Make The Raptors Look Awful?

Michael Grange

In the Lakers the Raptors may have met a team that defends the pick-and-roll worse than they do.

Eric Koreen

Five possessions, five Valanciunas FGA. Classic Raptors.

Eric Koreen

Four possessions, four Valanciunas FGA. Classic Raptors.

Ryan Wolstat

Caught up with Ed Davis pre-game. Remains a good dude. Going to get paid handsomely this off-season.

Josh Lewenberg

Last time we'll see the Raptors in purple this season. Seems fans and players have all enjoyed it. Hope they keep 'em around as an alternate

Eric Koreen

Raps in purple, Lakers in gold. This is a pleasing colour scheme.

Eric Koreen

Boss is doing boss. RT @Holly MacKenzie: pre-game highlight of Lakers/Raps was catching up w/ @Ed Davis, obvs.

Eric Koreen

Could be a big night here at the ACC. With a win, the Raps clinch the Atlantic. youtube.com/watch?v=f7WAy8…

Josh Lewenberg

Jumping on @TSN1050Radio's Countdown to Tip-off with @jimtatti and @DuaneWatson to tee-up Raptors/Lakers.

Ryan Wolstat

Two of the best PR staffs in the NBA in the building tonight. Lakers staff, like Raptors, is excellent

Ryan Wolstat

Since Damon Stoudamire is coaching at Arizona, he isn't here for his bobblehead night, but word is we'll see him at ACC soon

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "One game will help, a few games will help even more, but you can't flip a switch and go from a bad defensive team to a great one"

Josh Lewenberg

By my count, Casey used the phrase "gloom and doom" four times in six-minute pre-game scrum. The gist: it's not all "gloom and doom"

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "So not all is dead and sad and gloom and doom in mudville"

Josh Lewenberg

Casey pointed out the team has accomplished several of their goals this season (playoffs, division) & chance to win round is still out there

Eric Smith

Former #Raptors owner J. Bitove just said if I. Thomas didn't come on board w/ TOR , ironically, J.Dumars was the other guy he was talkin to

Ryan Wolstat

Currently waiting for Isiah Thomas to bust through a giant Raptors dinosaur logo like 21 or so years ago

Congrats to @tim_micallef & @Sid_Seixeiro for a solid - and fun - reign on the @FAN590 airwaves. I'm sure the @Sportsnet show will be a hit

Eric Koreen

It's @noahlove's last day at @nationalpost. He put @npsport digital on the right track, with @evalois and @e_gilbert continuing. Bye.

Josh Lewenberg

No Lowry tonight, as expected. With their top 8 players available, the Raptors are 25-14 this season. They're 17-16 w/o at least 1 of them

Eric Koreen

The Jays are all smiling and having fun, says Michael Saunders. Hang the banner!

Eric Koreen

I'm totally convinced Dalton Pompey is going to be awesome. Spring Training is the best.

Eric Koreen

BTW, it's almost baseball season, and @LottOnBaseball is the best, and you should follow him.

Eric Koreen

Always beware when a team points to improved chemistry as reason for hope, especially in baseball: news.nationalpost.com/2015/03/27/tor…

No timetable given. RT @wanderlustMatty: @Eric Koreen Have they given any sort of timetable? Or just dealing with it game-to-game?

Patrick Patterson

Lemme make it easy for u.. Just jump on the Kentucky Bandwagon.. There's enough room for everyone. @espn #bbn #kentuckywildcats

Eric Koreen

As expected, Kyle Lowry (back) will not play tonight against the Lakers.

Amir Johnson

I'm taking over @CanadaGooseInc Twitter tomorrow so make sure you follow them so you can interact with me. #GoosePeople #AskAnyoneWhoKnows

Mike Ganter

Just a feeling I have, but @outsidethenba has already purchased one of the Sauce Castillo t-shirts the Sactown Kings are hawking.
