It took them overtime to do it, but the Toronto Raptors managed to beat the Nets in Brooklyn last night, 114-113. I’ve got my usual five thoughts on the game, but, as noted earlier, my Raptors Five Thoughts have a new home, over at RaptorsHQ at the SBNation network.
Going forward I will continue to post links here, in my Raptorama category; I don’t think this will be the format but I haven’t figured out exactly what it’ll look like. Stay tuned!
A few additional Raptors notes:
DeMar DeRozan was on Adrian Wojnarowski’s podcast over the weekend, and it was well worth a listen. DeMar has grown into a thoughtful, engaging and interesting young man.
Speaking of DeMar, our old friend Doug Smith think DeMar’s the greatest Raptor ever. It’s hard to disagree at this point.
Eric Koreen with the late-night update on Kyle Lowry:
As I left arena, Lowry was on crutches, standing with Alex McKechnie. Presumably not heading home tonight, at least with team. Wouldn’t read much into it beyond he probably won’t play tomorrow.

That’s all for today. Remember to read my recaps over at RaptorsHQ; check back tomorrow for my thoughts on tonight’s Raptors-Heat matchup.
