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!
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
Hope you had "rebounding" in tonight's game of What Will Make The Raptors Look Awful?
In the Lakers the Raptors may have met a team that defends the pick-and-roll worse than they do.
Five possessions, five Valanciunas FGA. Classic Raptors.
Four possessions, four Valanciunas FGA. Classic Raptors.
Caught up with Ed Davis pre-game. Remains a good dude. Going to get paid handsomely this off-season.
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
Raps in purple, Lakers in gold. This is a pleasing colour scheme.
Two of the best PR staffs in the NBA in the building tonight. Lakers staff, like Raptors, is excellent
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
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"
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"
Casey: "So not all is dead and sad and gloom and doom in mudville"
Casey pointed out the team has accomplished several of their goals this season (playoffs, division) & chance to win round is still out there
Currently waiting for Isiah Thomas to bust through a giant Raptors dinosaur logo like 21 or so years ago
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
The Jays are all smiling and having fun, says Michael Saunders. Hang the banner!
I'm totally convinced Dalton Pompey is going to be awesome. Spring Training is the best.
As expected, Kyle Lowry (back) will not play tonight against the Lakers.

Remarkable day for myself!!! Día inolvidable para mi carrera.
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
Dekker and Paige. Paige and Dekker.
It's hard to believe the editors did not take me up on that suggestion for a headline.
The good news is the Raptors and Drake have a lot of merchandise to sell you. The bad news is ...
Sorry, I'm bad at math. The Raptors are 18-22 in 2015, while the Wizards are 18-23. Again, the playoffs are gonna rule.
In 2015, the Raptors are 18-22. In 2015, the Wizards are 18-21. We're heading toward a wonderful first-round series.
Oh good: snow.
Oh good, the Raptors recalled Bebe to save the season.
Raptors gave up 37 in 1st to Detroit, 39 in 4th to Chicago. Also gave up 49 in 4th earlier in season against Bulls.
Dwane Casey never did, but at some point, most of those players bought their own hype.
Most troubling thing about Raptors might not even be the defensive tire fire, it’s this bizarre belief that 1 game will turn it all around
