HoopsHype Toronto Raptors twitter
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.
Bebe says he doesn't mind his rabbit hat but would prefer the pink backpacks last year's rookies got. Said his hair doesn't fit in the hat
Bebe says Lowry is responsible for the Raptors' rookies new hats. He & Bruno have rabbits, Will Cherry has a wolf http://t.co/Jc5KWU6OIc
Bebe said yesterday marked six weeks since the injury so he is back right on schedule (though two weeks ahead of worst-case).
Bebe also said time in Spain got him used to bench: "Sometimes, the five man got hurt, coach put the shooting guard in the post."
Be forewarned: Bebe is going to be in 50% of my ledes this year. Sorry in advance.
Bebe on working with McKechnie: “He’s an amazing guy. An amazing professional. We are friends. I hope I’ll have that friendship all my life”
Bebe is back a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. A bit of a surprise Not expected to impact Stiemsma status much as Stiemsma has experience
Everyone is available for the Raptors tonight, including Lucas Nogueira, who has been out w/ hamstring injury. Casey may try to get him in
Bebe (hamstring) is available tonight. Huzzah!
Bebe on board. Nogueira back for Raptors toonight
Let's get it!
So it's weird to tweet out sports links today, so feel free to ignore, obviously.
As of now, I'd be surprised if the Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game is canceled tonight. But these things can and do change quickly.
"You thought that little effort that you put in was enough girl how bout now!"
LRT: four "fare inspectors" in bright yellow jackets got on my train at bloor about 15 minutes ago.
As of now, Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game is still a go.
Raptors regulars may be on a cap again tonight but Casey says they could get into a more regular rotation in Friday's preseason finale
Ottawa, stay strong. Canadians...unite.
"Our biggest challenge tonight is ourselves," Casey says, hoping his team is able to stay disciplined/run their sets vs an unknown opponent
No word bout whether or not game will be canceled tonight because of what is happening in Ottawa. I'd be surprised if there is no discussion
DeRozan asked how his Hebrew is ahead of tonight's game vs Maccabi Haifa: "Its alright" Really? "Nah, I'm lyin', I ain't got nothing"
I saw a riot last time I was in Montreal for Raptors-Knicks and did some interesting stuff while in news, but nothing like Ottawa situation
DeMar was also asked how his Hebrew is: "It's all right."
Casey said he will probably use Friday's game to approximate a regular rotation.
Per Woj, Raptors not one of teams to vote down lottery reform. But talking to various team personnel yesterday, Raptors had mixed feelings
(Possible I inverted the intended hashtag. But since I was the first to tweet it, nobody will ever know! Let's pretend it was purposeful!)
20 years later and Raptors broadcast sked is bigger mess than ever.
… a series of stories over the next few days. Hopefully you guys enjoy it.
… to look back and see how we got to this point, and try to figure out where things will go in the future. Anyway, we'll be rolling out...
So, on and off for the last few months, I've been working on a series of stories on the 20th season of the NBA in Canada. It's been fun ...
Raptors-Knicks in Montreal not yet a sellout. Bloom off that rose in Montreal, or sick of same matchup?
Bean post game!
Show me yo ambitions of a rider
More like Regular Game James.
Il Pence, therefore he is.
Royals in 2.
So, Vucevic gets 4 years at $13.5M/season from Magic. Will be a comparable for Valanciunas, who likely gets more.
I'm still holding out hope that Andrea Bargnani goes to Europe for four years then comes back as a proto-Nachbar. Not much hope, admittedly.
Lively debate after practice today about all-time top10. Perhaps shouldn’t be surprising, considering Seattle ties but DC says Russell No. 1
The word "if" should be taken out of the dictionary!
Slower practice for the Raptors this afternoon, Casey called it a "teaching day". Worked on their zone, transition D and in-game adjustments
