Tony Parker let loose on the Raptors as they failed to materialize a win in their back-to-back home games. The Raptors kept it close for the most part, but to Raptors HQ, the most disturbing part is the fading identity that seemed to be established earlier in the year.
It's another game against the Celtics as the Raptors hope the third time is the charm. Raptors HQ looks at the recent spotlight on Jeremy Lin and wonders where the Raptors equivalent is?
The Hawks managed to thrash the Raptors from the second quarter forward. What was harder to watch was a 33 year old shooting guard with back issues completely school our wing players. Raptors HQ looks into how a 33 year old beat our team
It took double overtime and a lot of headache to determine the outcome of this game. The Jazz and Raptors left everything on the floor and in the end, the Raptors took it. Raptors HQ recaps an emotional one
- It wasn't pretty, and you couldn't call what the Raptors played for a lot of the game "defense" but there were definitely highlights and enough for the Raptors to take it and beat the Phoenix...
Slow vs slower. In a game which threatens to be the slowest paced game of the year, it'll be a battle between the Raptors and Celtics in Boston. With both teams at 4 wins, this could be a very important turning point for the Celtics who still have playoff and championship aspirations.
Coming in the middle of the back-to-back-to-back sequence is this game against the Wizards. A lot of people called this game a "trap" game as the Wizards came into the game 0-8. Unfortunately, this loss shouldn't have surprised anyone.
Previewing the Raptors for their second home game! Taking a look at tonight's game and looks at how the Raptors are playing "exciting" basketball
One down, a bunch more to go. You may have heard that the Raptors beat the Cavaliers, but Raptors HQ is conflicted, and probably will remain so for the rest of this year. Also, at what price is Jose Calderon is worth it?
A look into the new Raptors organizational structure and the man who may have gained a lot of new power.
After watching the Raptors nation and expects go nuts for the past few days after the draft, Vicious D look at the bigger picture and asks us just to take a little step back.
Last game of the year! With the Raptors taking on the Heat, it's a fitting cap to a season that began with Chris Bosh's departure.
It's gameday against the New York Knicks, who have secured their first playoff spot in years. With the Raptors winding down the season, there still seems to be a lot of fight left in our plucky team.
Raptors basketball is winding down as the Bucks look to make a push towards the playoffs. However, the Raptors core still has lots to work towards as the season winds down.
After an absolute shellacking at the hands of the Nuggets, the Raptors head off to the Arizona sun for some desert action. Raptors HQ discusses his thoughts on tonight's game and ponders the long term drafting strategy of the Raptors.
As the Raptors head into mid March, they take on the Detroit Pistons who have just a slightly better record than the Raptors. With the Pistons not playing much defense, it may not take much for our local boys to come out with a win in the Motor City.
Leandro Barbosa gave us a glimpse of what the Suns have had the chance to see for many years as he led the Raptors to a 108-98 drubbing of the Indiana Pacers.
It was another game where the Raptors had spurts of production, but they just couldn't pull it all together. The Bobcats essentially steam rolled the Raptors and without any defense, there was little chance for the Raptors to make a game of it.
As Chris Bosh rolls in and out of Toronto for the first time this season, MLSE is about to meet up with Bryan Colangelo to discuss his contract extension. Perhaps it's just the universe being in harmony, but the entire scenario is just dripping with irony. Raptors HQ takes a look at the many reasons to look elsewhere
The Bucks took it to the Raptors in the second half and beat them by 18 points... At least that's what the score would have you believe. Instead, the Raptors fought against an opponent that they shouldn't need to overcome: Themselves.
The Raptors are in a tailspin but not before taking an extra day in Indiana thanks to a snow storm. Now, they land in Atlanta looking to face a team which they could potentially become in a few years. Raptors HQ analyzes the next game against the Hawks
The Raptors gave Memphis a scare as they tied things up going into the final minute. There was lots of competitive play but in the end, the Raptors didn't have enough to take themselves over the hump.
The Raptors probably had no business being in this game, but for most of the middle, they lead the Spurs. Problem is, the Spurs remembered that they put up approximately 105 points per game.
Jose Calderon put in a career-best performance by nearly succeeding in getting a triple double. Problem is, the Raptors were down a platoon of players. It's game one of a huge five game road trip.
