2018-2019 Raptors Season

He shot nearly 56% from the field, had 26 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists.  Hard to say he kept failing.

The booted ball with 2 seconds left was definitely bad (with some other mistakes) but he'll probably be back to his old self in a month or two.

Raps are going to have more close losses like this...they have been lucky with some close wins up to now.

Shooting was bad at the end.  Three point shooting was definitely not good - losing Green, their best three point shooter and a solid defender with Powell already out hurts.

Was looking more at the 4th, when him and everyone else was ice cold (and they couldn't defend anything either).  The ball kept going to Leonard, and ended up with a lot of nothing except a diminishing lead.

Fun game Raptors! If these teams meet in the playoffs it’ll be a treat!

That loss was so frustrating. What was Nurse and Leonard thinking for the last play on the 4th. Literally waited for 5 seconds left to take a shot. Go in for a drive because Boston isn't the type of team to take your chances against in OT
If you need a sign to stay alive tonight, this is it!

Another 4th quarter lead they can't hold....another game on the line in the dying seconds with the ball in Leonard's hands, and Raps are in a slump

Big game about to start. Raps need to get back to playing the way we all know they can.

(Edit: I didn't watch their game against the Bulls. Blew them out; fine. But they need to be much better at closing out close games.)

Tons of injuries - I know Lowry was a game-time decision - not sure if he's playing.

Nice to see the Raps on the right side of a buzzer beater victory.

Unfortunately, it was another big lead that was given up due to poor shooting, and they gave up the tying shot with 2.3 seconds left.

Lot of warning signs with this team...even in their wins

I wouldn't be too concerned - it's early. Even the Warriors have warning signs. The important part is just getting the wins at this point.

They seem to have moved back into iso ball, which I hope isn't a long term thing.

Aside from the win totals, they were a legitimately fun team to watch last year.

So Vince Carter scores his 25,000th point against the Raptors, on a dunk. I don't think you could've drawn it up any better than that.

Perhaps if he did it as a member of the Raptors it would've been more memorable. Wink

Nice win tonight against the Heat...but should have been much better. First half of the third, 3's dropping like rain...busting out to a 25ish point lead (biggest lead was around that, or 27 maybe)...but then, by the end of the quarter, they had given almost all back.

Held on for the 10pt win...but still frustrating at times to watch. They aren't putting teams away, when the game should be pretty much over.

Amen. 25 points in 5 1/2 minutes to start the second half. Should have been all over. Wasn't.

That was a good win. Nurse, Lowry, and Ibaka were getting fired up and rightfully so, I think the refs made amends eventually.

man...the Raps have not been getting any calls lately.

don't know what they have to do, to get an offensive foul go their way.
