HoopsHype Toronto Raptors twitter
Vasquez working well with Amir Johnson in pick-and-roll. Might be unintended pro of moving Amir to bench eventually.
JV has attempted 5 shots in 5 minutes, hitting 3 (6 of Raps' first 10 points). He took 2 in his 23 minutes of action Monday vs PHI.
That was JV's left hand. Just to confirm: JV went to his left.
Valanciunas has taken four shots in four minutes. Yes, these are the Toronto Raptors.
After Casey played it coy, the same starters — Vasquez, DeRozan, the Johnsons and Valanciunas — are listed for Raps.
Casey mentioned implementing zone as something on his checklist of things to get done before the postseason begins.
Cavs up 2-1 in season series. They get the tie-breaker if they win tonight, if you care about such things.
No Lowry tonight. Casey didn't commit to same starters
No Lowry tonight for Raps vs. Cavs
No Lowry tonight vs Cavs. Still resting.
Casey says Raptors starting to do some experiments - like starting Patterson recently - to prepare for playoffs. Still need to get zone in.
"They've got the best player in the league. I don't think that can be disputed... (but) Houston might.
Casey says "tonight play with confidence. Let's find an area to get better, whether it's offence or defence.
These guys try to jump you via timeline. Lol new type of thugs these days.
Going on the Kenny Roda Show in Canton, Ohio to talk Raptors-Cavs at 3:35, 1480 WHBC
Anyway, completed my PAGG today. SOMEONE GIVE ME MONEY.
If Cavs win tonight they move into a virtual tie w/ Raps for 2nd, take season series/possible tie breaker for playoff seeding. Lots at stake
Actually, it doesn't appear that iTunes has updated yet. But it will. I think. (I don't actually know how these things work.)
My brother is excited about Matt Cassel. He's hopeless.
JaVale could be possible for Raptors only if it's not a bidding war.
Masai loves McGee but no chance Raptors go over tax to get him.
Horror movie before bed.. Goodnight world 💤
So apparently at some point on Tuesday night I hit the 20,000 mark for Twitter followers. Do I win a prize? Money? Or do YOU.....?
If Leafs rally around a fan's tweet aired by accident and blow whatever chance they have at McDavid, it will be most Leaf thing ever.
If you have tickets to Hornets at Raptors April 15, NBA has moved start time up to 7 p.m.
So I guess Phaneuf/Kessel etc. did learn a lot from Brian Burke. He hated malicious rumour-mongering more than anyone.
DeRozan compared LeBron's poise to Peyton Manning. "He reads the game. He reads defences, puts guys in the best position to be effective"
The (hopefully) final awful winter travel day of year has delayed today's blog, but fear not, it will arrive shortly.
Crowdsourcing: name a famous hype man — not Flavor Flav.
"It’s going to be a great week." - Greivis Vasquez, without context.
Believe in yourself at all times..
I be gone to November, then November came, then I came on my worst...
I will say that Kanye West on Chopped represents Peak Culture for me.
If Phil doesn't like what the media says about Dion, he should hear what the kids on my son's hockey team say.
I wouldn't be surprised if Lowry sits Wed vs. Cavs. Smart play is get him 100%. Why invest two games and set him back in 3rd?
F$ck with some commas...
The first 4 wins of that stretch (10 wins in 12 gms. Jan23-Feb20): PHI, DET, IND, SAC. Last 4: LAC, SAN, WAS, ATL. Have to start somewhere.
Last time Raps were in Philly they had lost 8 of 11, went on to win 10 of 12. Yes, its JUST a W over 76ers, but confidence can go a long way
En Toronto el frio Es como para mudarme pa Maracaibo
Sigan hablando, ya vengo!!! http://t.co/bRj0fsA88K
Romeo santos hasta Toronto...
I know they won and all, but the Raptors should probably go bowling, just to be sure.
Both DeRozan/Vasquez said things felt looser today, referencing lighter/fun shoot around, said Casey did something different to change it up
DeMar: "I know Ive been struggling last couple gms but that never stops me from shooting. The best way to get out of it is to keep shooting"
Happy Raptors room. Vasquez said Casey switched up shootaround, made it fun and it relaxed team and paid off.
Casey pleased to see offence finally return, but "defence took a step back." praised the team effort
DeRozan goes for a season-high 35 points (12/24 FG, 10/10 FT, 9 reb, 5 ast) as the Raptors snap their 5-game skid. They get Cavs at home Wed
Raptors snap a five-game losing skid, worst since Rudy Gay was on the team. DeRozan season-best 35 points.
“I come back to you now at the turn of the tide.” - Gandalf DeRozan, probably.
DeRozan is 10-for-19 from field on regular shots, 0-for-2 on end of quarter desperation heaves.
Yes, it's vs Sixers. Yes, JV needs more than 2 shots in 23 mins. But this is exactly what DeRozan needed to break out of funk: a big night
3:04 to go the raptors are up 14 in philly. Largest lead of the night. DeRozan has 31
Philly gives away papa johns pizza coupons of the sixers score 90 pts. Win or lose.
