Tough night for the Raptors. More lessons learned, heading into game 7. BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Dwane Casey admitted he'd been concerned about his young Raptors team who had zero experience playing in close-out games — what awaited them with the vastly-experienced Brooklyn Nets, and how they'd react. It turned out, the Toronto coach had good reason to be. The Raptors couldn't overcome a horrible first quarter — their worst 12 minutes of the series — en route to a 97-83 loss to Brooklyn Nets on Friday, sending the series back to the Air Canada Centre tied at three games apiece. "Any Game 6, a team is going to come out with a desperate mindset," Casey said. "This team they built to win a championship this year. They're going to come out and give you their best shot. . . knew that coming in and tried to warn our team. "Guys who haven't been in Game 6 before, it's one of the toughest things to do. Again, experience is the best teacher. Now we're going into Game 7, it's our first time at that. Luckily we have i ...

The Miami Heat may own 13 straight wins over the Toronto Raptors, but they know two November victories in the series don't mean much now. The Heat will be out to end the new-look Raptors' five-game win streak Sunday night at home. LeBron James combined for 62 points on 62.2 percent shooting in road wins over Toronto (16-15) two months ago. The Raptors are a different team now as winners of nine of 11 since Dec. 13 - the date when the majority of the players acquired from Sacramento in the Rudy *** deal made their club debuts. "We've been noticing," Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. "They've been playing very good basketball. We mentioned that about the Eastern Conference. It is way too premature to figure out where teams are. There are teams that have higher ceilings, and they're one of them." Toronto used to employ *** primarily to defend James.

Fantasy Rumors December, 31, 2013 3:02PM ET By Joe Kaiser | ESPN.com Ross' growing fantasy value If you need scoring and/or 3-point help, Toronto's Terrence Ross is suddenly an option to consider. Up until recently, the 2012 lottery pick out of Washington was always somewhat of a tease on the court, with his jaw-dropping leaping ability often left on the bench. That all changed since the Raptors traded Rudy *** though, and Ross has benefited from the additional minutes. Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun points out that Ross has started nine of the 10 games since *** s departure and shot 48 percent from 3-point land during that time. “Huge,” Toronto coach Dwane Casey told the newspaper of the contribution Ross has been making. “He’s really adapting well. When the teams are double-teaming Kyle [Lowry] and DeMar [DeRozan], he’s the beneficiary of it and I think he likes it. ... “What’s next for Terrence is catching and attacking their feet. He’s coming. He’s made big strides, playing consist ...

Good morning, y'all! Today is the debut of the NBA regular season. There are 30 teams reaching for that one prestigious goal: the NBA championship! Out of 30 teams, 12 of the teams have African American head coaches. They are Jason Kidd of the Brooklyn Nets, Mike Brown of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Brian Shaw of the Denver Nuggets, Maurice Cheeks of the Detroit Pistons, Mark Jackson of the Golden State Warriors, Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers, Larry Drew of the Milwaukee Bucks, Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans, Mike Woodson of the New York Knicks, Jacque Vaughn of the Orlando Magic, Dwane Casey of the Toronto Raptors, and Tyrone Corbin of the Utah Jazz. Only Doc Rivers has a ring when he won the title in 2008 when he coached the Boston Celtics while Jason Kidd is the only coach who won a title as a player when he did it in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks. Brian Shaw finally got a head coaching job that was long overdue. Since he was in the shadow of legendary coach Phil Jackson, he should b ...

NBA Future Rankings (ESPN Insider) 26. Toronto Raptors | Future Power Rating: 469 PLAYERS MANAGEMENT MONEY MARKET DRAFT 232 (22nd) 82 (20th) 84 (22nd) 37 (22nd) 34 (25th) The Raptors have seen better days. Toronto slid in our rankings this year after a season whose tumult was illustrated by then general manager Bryan Colangelo desperately putting his former No. 1 pick Andrea Bargnani on the trading block during a live local TV broadcast. Bargnani was never traded, but the Raptors did absorb Rudy *** and his swollen contract ahead of the deadline. In Toronto, *** shot 42.5 percent from the floor, doing little to shed his label as an overpaid volume shooter. *** is set to earn $37 million over the next two seasons. The Raptors sputtered to a 34-54 record and a last-place finish in the Atlantic Division behind coach Dwane Casey. Colangelo has since been removed from basketball operations. The good news is that 2012-13 Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri of the Denver Nuggets might be taking over the reins in T ...
