I have to think that Lowry is pretty sick and tired of being asked about the DeRozan trade.

I know I'm tired of hearing about it.


He may be sick of being asked about it , but he's also somewhat peeved about it, too.

Raptors beat Golden State without Kawhi and with Green dislocating JV's thumb.   Nice win.

Big JV out for four weeks, possibly longer, after undergoing surgery on his dislocated thumb.

The Raptors will substitute either Monroe or  Boucher in his place.

Leonard with a career high of 45 points and Pascal Siakam with a career high 28 points including a double-double, powered the Raptors to a 122-116 victory over the Utah Jazz, in a New Year’s Day home game in Toronto. 

The Raptors were missing both Jonas Valenciunas and Kyle Lowry, the latter out indefinitely (back/hip).

Raptors are currently 28-11 on the year, in second place in the Eastern Conference, two wins back of Gianni’s Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks.  The Indiana Pacers are third, a few wins back of Toronto.

First  it was the win over Giannis whatshisname & the Eastern Conference leading Mikwaukee Bucks Saturday, 123-115.  A game that saw Leonard put up 30 points and Siakam with another career-best 30 points, plus excellent contributions from Ibaka (25) & VanVleet (21).  Total team effort.

Then, Sunday, in the second of back to back weekend games, the Raptors prevailed again, winning 121-105 here at home over the Indiana Pacers.

The Raptors, this time sans Kawhi, saw the return of Kyle Lowry whose 12 points on the night belied his overall efforts pivotal for the win.  Powell (23), Wright, and Monroe had strong performances from the bench, as did starters Green & VanVleet.

With these two wins Toronto is now back atop the Eastern Conference standings.  The Bucks are in second 1.0 GBL Raptors, with Indiana 2.5 GBL.  The Raptors have three wins more than the Bucks.

The lowly Atlanta Hawks give the Raptors a run for it, forcing Toronto to initiate a comeback 104-101 win in the last minutes of the game.

The two Ks -- Kawhi & Kyle -- ignited and drove the comeback.  Leonard with the steal that started a passing feeder system with the ball landing in Ibaka's hands for the go-ahead,  and Lowry with the pass that led Anunoby in an in-alone dunk for the insurance marker.

Former Raptor Vince Carter, who is attempting to set a career-long tenure in becoming among one of the oldest players in the league, received a warm ovation from the Toronto faithful.

Raptors defeated the Brooklyn Nets 122-105 here at home last night.

Strong performance by the bench unit — Powell, Anunoby, Wright, Monroe — plus Leonard & Siakam each putting up big numbers (Leonard with 20 pts., Siakam with 16, &  Ibaka with 14).

OT thriller.  Raptors defeat the Washington Wizards 140-138.

Kawhi Leonard set an NBA streaks record -- 19th straight game of 20 pts., or more.

Siakam to the rescue.  Gets the Raptors the win 111-109 over the Phoenix Suns at Scotiabank Arena, in the dying seconds of the game:

When Kawhi isn’t available, Raptors still tough to beat:

Some things not right in Raptorland.  After their 105-92 loss in Toronto Thursday night to the Eastern Conference leading Milwaukee Bucks, all is not very right with the team considering the fact that the Raptors looked overwhelmed at times with Milwaukees’s transition game.

Kawhi & Kyle were particularly ‘hounded’ by the Bucks defence resulting in turnovers and incoherent passes, or just an inability to get that ball in the net,  and only until coach Nick Nurse put the bench squad with starter Siakam out there, did the team start really competing.  Siakam led Toronto with 28 pts. on the night.
