  • Red-hot Magic set to face Raptors in Round 1 of NBA playoffs

    And Milwaukee, Toronto and Orlando all were tied for the Eastern Conference's best record over the final 31 games of the season - all going 22-9 down the stretch.

  • How Kawhi Leonard has the Raptors primed for the playoffs

    It's Jan. 3, 2019, inside the AT&T Center in San Antonio, and Kawhi Leonard, on the other side of the layup line on the court where he once hoisted a championship trophy and a Finals MVP, stares into the distance and claps alongside his new Toronto Raptors teammates as an ocean of cheers — directed at guard Danny Green, the other piece of the deal that shipped Leonard away from San Antonio after his trade demand — turns into boos. Leonard wears the same distant and sad-eyed look throughout the tribute video (“I didn't look at it,” he says. Only while leaving the court did Leonard betray any emotion, smiling his wolfish smile while embracing his former coach, Gregg Popovich, and sharing a few words that, you guessed it, remain private.

  • Lamb game-winner does little to disrupt Raptors' agenda

    The Jeremy Lamb moment was cute, again. In the midst of March Madness and the musical chairs being played between five Eastern Conference teams for the final three playoff seeds, the 26-year-old's 48-foot Hail Mary heave that banked in at Scotiabank Arena was a shot in the arm that could have been looked back on as the one that got the Charlotte Hornets over the hump. It's April now, and another Lamb game-winner complementing Kemba Walker's sorcery that bookends a Toronto Raptors five-game win streak does very little to change either team's circumstance and the oomph that the Hornets' celebrations on March 24 contained was conspicuous by its absence here.

  • It happened again: Jeremy Lamb hits another game-winner against Raptors

    If the Toronto Raptors find themselves in a close game late against the Charlotte Hornets ever again, they'll probably be keeping their eyes glued to one man: Jeremy Lamb. Fewer than two weeks after his insane, halfcourt, buzzer-beating, banked-in three to give the Hornets a vital win against the Toronto Raptors, Lamb went ahead and made another game-winning three, this time at home and off a clutch assist from star Kemba Walker. Walker] made the right read to kick it to the open man.

  • Raptors are biggest threat to Warriors' three-peat attempt, one writer says

    Raptors are biggest threat to Warriors' three-peat attempt, one writer says originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com If the Warriors play how they did on Sunday night, nobody can stop them.

  • Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard's pre-season 'intervention' with Kyle Lowry

    During Toronto's training camp prior to the 2018-19 season, new Raptors head coach Nick Nurse called a meeting to ask four of his star players to lead an “intervention” with Kyle Lowry in an effort to change the point guard's approach to practice. The request put Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard — who were obtained in the ground-shaking DeMar DeRozan trade last summer — in an odd spot. “We got to find a way to get K-Low to do this better in practice or do this more,” Nurse said about Lowry, who is to his own admission isn't the my prolific practice player.

  • Lauri Markkanen reacts to rapid heart rate, fatigue scare: 'I wasn't really worried at any point'

    Lauri Markkanen reacts to rapid heart rate, fatigue scare: 'I wasn't really worried at any point' originally appeared on nbcsportschicago.com Lauri Markkanen realized something wasn't right in the early minutes of Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors. He committed a turnover on the Bulls' second possession, then missed a jumper in the lane and couldn't finish two shots at the rim all within the first 4 minutes. It was around that time, Markkanen told reporters Friday at the Advocate Center, that he began experiencing what was later diagnosed as extreme fatigue.

  • NBA roundup: Antetokounmpo hurt in Bucks' victory

    Khris Middleton scored 39 points as the Milwaukee Bucks moved closer to securing the top record in the Eastern Conference with a 128-118 victory Thursday over the visiting Los Angeles Clippers. The victory came with some concern, however, as Giannis Antetokounmpo left the game with 7:46 remaining and did not return after sustaining a right ankle injury when he stepped on the foot of the Clippers' Garrett Temple. Antetokounmpo's status moving forward was not immediately known, although he did remain on the bench for the remainder of the contest.

  • Spurs on verge of playoffs, Harden lifts Rockets

    The San Antonio Spurs boosted their NBA playoff chances with victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers as Western Conference rivals the Sacramento Kings lost. After San Antonio's 116-110 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Kings' 121-118 defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday, the Spurs (44-32) are six-and-a-half games clear of Sacramento (37-38) – who have seven games remaining. One loss from the Kings and their playoff hopes are dashed.
