1 of the better pics I've seen today. A fitting way to end an emotional day. Good night #Ottawa. Canada #United http://t.co/LFLvJt6YdB

Bebe: "They gave me a whole education & support so right now to see her son in the NBA, she's so proud. So I understand why she's crying"

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe: "My mom, shes so emotional. Shes crying a lot. She cries about everything but I understand why she is crying because they adopted me"

Eric Smith

Good on ya. MLB? Fail. MT @penguins Some things are bigger than hockey. Tonight Pens fans sang the CDN anthem: pens.pe/10pzaWO

Eric Koreen

That story might not get 20 page views. Don't care. Fun.

Eric Koreen

If you're still awake: on the joy of watching someone named Leroy Hickerson play a meaningless NBA game: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/10/22/tor…

Eric Smith

I've had people tell me I look like Keanu Reeves. Watching him on Kimmel...His hair is WAY better (he has it all). My beard beats his tho!

BREAKING NEWS: @Royals defeat @SFGiants in Game 2 of the #WorldSeries. Somewhere @Piercebdawson is smiling! #GoRoyals

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe's biggest NBA supporter: Atlanta's Al Horford. Said he was frustrated Hawks didn't sign him but Al would take him for dinner/to church

Doug Smith

Seeing Tim Lincecum pitch in the World Series, regardless of the circumstances, for some reason makes me happy

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe said he spoke to his family over the phone after the game. They watched from Brazil. His proud mom/sister were crying tears of joy

Lucas Nogueira

Great to play my first NBA game, good win! #WeTheNorth @Toronto Raptors

Josh Lewenberg

Bebe post-game scrum is one of the most genuine/emotional I've been apart of. Spoke about his debut, nerves and his family's support

Lucas Nogueira

Feliz pelo meu primeiro jogo na NBA. Grande vitória!! #WeTheNorth @Toronto Raptors

Ryan Wolstat

Bebe said his family watched in Brazil and his mom was crying tears of joy. Looked up at me weird when I said “Bebe on board"

Eric Smith

Sittin in a long parking lot line...waitin to pull out of my spot. 4 cars pass. Jerks. Last one?...some solo girl occupied w/ stupid selfies

Eric Koreen

Leroy Hickerson: "I played 14 minutes, and my plus-minus was like 20." <3

Eric Koreen

Spoke to two dudes who exude joy tonight. A nice antidote to the day's events.

Josh Lewenberg

Night of rest for vets Lou Williams & Chuck Hayes. Casey wanted to give Cherry and Stiemsma some run as team prepares to decide on 15th-man

Eric Smith

Casey on where the team is at: "hard to tell...we're not at a regular rotation yet" #raptors #rtz

Eric Smith

Casey - "26 turnovers tells us how much work we have to do as a team" #raptors #rtz

Eric Smith

Oct 22 2014 - #raptors beat Maccabi Haifa 92-85. Toronto 6-1 in pre season. Last ex. Game on FRI in montreal. #rtz http://t.co/hIeZMWPFW4

Doug Smith

#Raptors 92, Maccabi Haifa 85; tell Springfield the tape'll be there in the morning. Or not

Eric Smith

the #Raptors improve to 6-1 in the pre-season w/ a 92-85 win over Maccabi Haifa. Dwane Casey won't be happy though; 26 TOR turnovers. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

'Topes win. 92-85.

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson showing some encouraging leadership qualities tonight. Gave Bebe a pre-game pep talk, now directing Bruno on D. Good sign

Eric Smith

:28.4 seconds left ... Raps are gonna win. Survive the scare. Sloppy game (26 turnovers! ....... 33 points to Maccabi off those 26 TO's)

Ryan Wolstat

Good combo with the Brazilian Durant RT @FrostyOil: @Ryan Wolstat Brazilian Dwight Howard

Eric Koreen

Bebe could be the Brazilian Anderson Varejao. Oh wait...

Doug Smith

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

Stiemsma jumper. Drink.

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
