May 4th, 2014. All the memories still so vivid in my mind. It was the 4th quarter, Game 7, and 8.8 seconds left. Terrence Ross had just picked off an inbounds pass and knocked it off Paul Pierce to give the Toronto Raptors possession. Maple Leaf Square, or more appropriately at the time, “Jurassic Park,” and the entire Air Canada Centre was sent into a frenzy. Being there...
There hasn’t been much to be excited about with the Toronto Raptors since they became a NBA franchise in 1995. There have been a handful of superstars who have used Toronto as a stepping stone for their careers, like Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter and Chris Bosh, but the overall product on the court has left much to be desired.

The Raptors successfully completed...
The Toronto Raptors travel to Atlanta on Wednesday for a rematch with the Hawks after defeating Atlanta 109-102 on opening night at the Air Canada Centre. The 12-2 NBA leading Raptors are 3-1 away from home this season and have rallied from double-digit deficits in each of their last two road contests. Toronto has never started a season 4-1 on the road.
No one said winning would be easy, even when you have 4th quarter statistics on your side. The Raptors were forced to hold off the Suns’ 4th quarter barrage to hold on for a 104-100 home win at the Air Canada Centre. This win marked their firth win in a row, their second five game winning streak in their 12 wins on the season.
