Former Raptors GM Glen Grunwald in the house watching the game.

Josh Lewenberg

Make that 8 of Raps' 11 third-quarter points for JV. 14 points/9 rebounds. Nets don't have an answer for him.

Josh Lewenberg

JV coming to life in the 3rdQ. He has 6 of the Raps' first 9 points. Up to 12 points and 9 boards on the night

Paul Jones

Thank u...lots of fun tonight "@icuplay: @Paul Jones @MarkJonesESPN You guys look awesome' Thanks for sharing PJ&MJ"

Ryan Wolstat

You want Bebe/Bruno? You got it RT @Josh Lewenberg: A halftime MUST read/listen - quick write on the Bebe/Bruno interview: tsn.ca/raptors-noguei…

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors tighten the screws in the 2nd quarter, lead 53-52 at the break. Jumping on @TSN1050Radio for halftime with @jimtatti & @DuaneWatson

Eric Smith

After flat start, the #raptors go into the half leading the #nets 53-52. #rtz

Eric Koreen

My man @Josh Lewenberg has the goods on the pre-game Bruno-Bebe scene. #Jlew4lyfe tsn.ca/raptors-noguei…

Ryan Wolstat

Drake’s team leads 53-52 at the half somehow.

Eric Koreen

Raps up 53-52 at the half. Joe Johnson is still a bit of a problem.

Josh Lewenberg

A halftime MUST read/listen - quick write on the Bebe/Bruno interview, including full audio/transcript of their chat tsn.ca/raptors-noguei…

Josh Lewenberg

Amir's tip-in gives the Raptors their first lead since 6-5 less than 3 minutes into the game

Eric Koreen

I'll tell you what, that Amir Johnson might be a player.

Eric Koreen

Own your failures. best. RT @steven_lebron: "Very legendary airball. I'm very proud of it" - Drake re his Kentucky moment.

Eric Koreen

The Nets are not particularly adept at slowing the pick-and-roll.

Josh Lewenberg

So maybe the Nets aren't Terrence Ross' kryptonite after all. After starting 0-for-5, Ross has scored the Raps' last 6 pts. Raps within 2

Ryan Wolstat

Random aside. On 10th anniversary of Vince Carter trade, Jarrett Jack said “His high-wire act was almost comparable to Michael’s."

Eric Koreen

Drake Night kiss cam! It remains like all other kiss cams.

Eric Koreen

James Johnson missed two free throws, and then was slow getting back, causing a mismatch. Lucky Nets didn't capitalize.

Eric Koreen

Greivis has his floater working. The Raps lost in transition, though.

Eric Koreen

Here comes our first look at James Johnson on Joe Johnson. #Johnson

Eric Koreen

Patrick Patterson's outchea shooting 24-foot layups.

Eric Smith

Flat start for the #raptors. Toronto down 30-22 to the #nets at the end of q1. #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Not a good Q for the Raptors. Nets, in second night of a back-to-back, shot 59% and outscored Toronto 18-6 in the paint. Raps down 8

Eric Koreen

Nets up 30-22 at the end of a q. Raps' defensive rotations look awful.

Mike Ganter

Raps giving up 30 points and counting in the first quarter to a Nets team that struggles to score is not Drizzy-like.

Eric Koreen

So far, this looks a lot like the bad moments of the playoff series.

Ryan Wolstat

Well, that Landry Fields tweet sure failed spectacularly.

Eric Koreen

Dance Pak performs to a Drake medley, while @the_raptor dresses up in Drake garb.

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno Caboclo signing off: "Good Christmas and good New Year for everybody."

Paul Jones

A surprise visitor to the set as @Drake came the set to join @Sherman Hamilton and me. #drakenight #raptors #rtz http://t.co/eQxMnmlFyR

Eric Koreen

The Jarrett Jack floater looks same as it always did.

Eric Smith

It's @drake night...even for the @the_raptor. #raptors #rtz http://t.co/7IAXecqWvs

Josh Lewenberg

And here it is... @Lucas Nogueira interviews @Bruno Caboclo in the @Toronto Raptors locker room ahead of Drake Night: iphone.tsn.ca/tsnpodcasts/Br…

Eric Koreen

Ah, there's that Joe Johnson floater that killed the Raptors last year. 12-6 Nets early.

Ryan Wolstat

Who are the other contenders, besides Landry Fields, for most improved player?

Ryan Wolstat

"I’ve got great things that will adorn your, uh, body as you move through life. I don’t know. I was trying to find a good way to say that."

Ryan Wolstat

More Drake on redesign: "I think people are going to be floored with what we have in store for next season …

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors pumping in fan noise for ESPN. That’s too bad.

Eric Koreen

Calls Lowry "the baby-faced assassin, and dubs Dwane Casey the best dressed man in the NBA.

Eric Koreen

Drake jokes that Amir recently got a Swiffer tattoo.

Josh Lewenberg

Drake announces the Raptor starters, becoming an annual Drake Night tradition.

Eric Koreen

gold and black fireworks, too. Drake doing intros.

Eric Koreen

BLACK AND GOLD HUED INTRO PRESENTATION. 6IX #DrakeNight

Eric Koreen

The unquestioned star of Drake presser was @RGriffinStar

Josh Lewenberg

What does Bruno think of Bebe? "He dont help me- practice, locker room, he only speaks Portuguese. Its not helping me. Talk English, Lucas"

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe: "Bruno Caboclo, last question... I dont want to disturb your time. I know you're busy. What do you think of Lucas Nogueira? Be honest"

Ryan Wolstat

"I've got much love for NY and Brooklyn but in this par. arena at this particular moment, the 1 thing I want to do is knock out Brooklyn."

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe: "Before nobody understand him in the locker room. So now he has a chance to make jokes so he can make the veterans laugh all the time"

Ryan Wolstat

Why’d Drake pick the Nets for Drake Night: "'Cause if there's anybody that I want to beat, it's the Nets."

Eric Koreen

Drake: "I’m excited for the stretch where we play the over-500 teams. I think that’s going to be the real test.” #Drakenalysis

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe: "He's learning English jokes right now so he can talk more in locker room" Bruno: "And make people laugh. I love that. I feel happy"

Ryan Wolstat

Drake says he isn’t going when Leiweke does. Wants to be involved long-term, not in ownership role though.

Eric Koreen

Drake added he has no interest in buying a stake in MLSE

Michael Grange

Some tidbits from otherwise amusing @Drake presser: said he wants/expects his relationship w/ Raps to extend beyond Tim Leiweke tenure /1

Ryan Wolstat

Drake asked for clarification on “F__ Brooklyn” then said Raptors would go from 0 to 100 “real quick."

Eric Koreen

Asked how quickly the Raptors will go from 0 to 100, Drake responded, "Dare I say, real quick."

Ryan Wolstat

Drake Night 2 is already way better than the first one.

Eric Koreen

Drake says he wants to be with the Raptors as long as they'll have him, regardless of Leiweke leaving.

Doug Smith

We're here talking Raptors-Nets if you want to stop by: thestar.com/sports/raptors…

Eric Smith

"It's a full re-brand" says @Drake of the color / jersey changes coming to the @raptors. #rtz #raptors

Ryan Wolstat

Drake says the Raptors rebrand is going well. Says people will like it. "It's definitely a full rebrand."

Eric Smith

TOR is his home l. So @Drake says - with all due respect - that he'll stay w/ the @raptors for as long as they'll have him; Leiweke or not

Eric Smith

Josh Lewenberg

For the record, Bruno insists he's not shy. "I'm a happy guy. I talk a lot. I'm learning some jokes"

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe interjects, thinks the girls believe Bruno is shy, says he should show his "Brazilian spirit" and the girls will come

Josh Lewenberg

So, does Bruno have a girlfriend? "I think the girls are shy. They don't come up to talk to me. I don't know why."

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe: "Bruno, you have a lot of female fans, they love you because you're beautiful. The girls want to know if you have a girlfriend"

Josh Lewenberg

Bruno response to Bebe Q re: chance to play tonight: "If this happens I would cry. So emotional, living here alone" Bebe: "Me too"

Ryan Wolstat

By the way, Bebe and Bruno sang at a Brazilian steakhouse last night because the performers didn't show up.

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe Q to Bruno: "So tonight you're dressing because you're so talented. So imagine the team wins by 20 or 30. Imagine fans scream Bruno"

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe: "Expectations for tonight?" Bruno: "Today is Drake Night. We'll have so much fun. Lost in playoffs, we want today" Bebe: "I like this"

Paul Jones

ICYMI Kevin Garnett will not play tonight for the #nets against the #Raptors #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe said "last question" 3-4 times before continuing on w/ more questions for Bruno. Tried to interview James Johnson. JJ: "no comment"

Ryan Wolstat

ESPN got part of Bebe-Bruno on tape. Wonder if they'll show it.

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe asked for my mic in the locker room, preceded to interview Bruno for 5 minutes - included relationship advice! Quotes and audio to come

Ryan Wolstat

KG out tonight (rest). Jarrett Jack said he and KG were talking about how they love Toronto and that it's different.

Ryan Wolstat

James Johnson walks in: "No comment."

Eric Koreen

The raptors turned into a boy band at breakneck speed.

Eric Koreen

Bruno insists he is not shy. Bebe says he has to come out of his shell to meet the right girl.

Raptors Dance Pak

Great to have lil brother @MarkJonesESPN in the house tonight at ACC for #Raptors v Nets #rtz #earlyChristmaspresent http://t.co/YpuZElJ5oR

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe interviewed Bruno for 5 minutes, then decided to interview himself. Changed voices for questions and answers. Guy is a gem

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe, like DeMar, is coming for our jobs. Grabbed mic in room and doing an interview with Bruno. Asking good questions

Eric Koreen

Bebe is interviewing Bruno with @Josh Lewenberg mic right now. Drake night is the best.

Michael Grange

The Raptors Patrick Patterson' is as determined to grow his game as he is to expand his horizons: sportsnet.ca/basketball/nba… @Sportsnet

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors in purple retros for Drake Night, which is a bit of a surprise - only non-Friday game they'll wear them this season

Ryan Wolstat

Asked Jarrett Jack if Chris Bosh graduated too: "I think this degree will be for both of us. He can come visit it at my house."

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said it took him a couple months to get over Game 7 loss. "When you're that intense for that long it takes a while to shut it down"

Josh Lewenberg

Casey, asked if his players remember G7: "I would say they remember but whether it motivates them or not, you'd have to ask them. I hope so"

Tom Liston

#NBAballot Kyle Lowry "Blogtable: Your All-Star starters « NBA.com" ow.ly/G4Qcw

Josh Lewenberg

Warm feelings left over from Game 7? Casey: "Warm? Yea, warm. Pretty warm. But no, it seems like forever ago, playing this team."

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "I get texts, 'do you know Drake, have you met Drake?' Yea, he sits there every night, he hears me cuss out the referees every night"

Ryan Wolstat

Casey on Drake: "He sits their every night. He knows all my cuss words."

Ryan Wolstat

Casey said he's watched last year's playoff series against Nets "many times." says experience helped the Raptors grow

Eric Smith

The crowd around @raptors coach D. Casey is a bit bigger tonight. #rtz #raptors instagram.com/p/wueP-Ro23w/

Ryan Wolstat

Three weeks after injury, DeRozan still not doing much pre-game. Just some shots, mostly standing around
