Danny Green made a season-high eight three-pointers to finish with 24 points and lead the Toronto Raptors to a 119-90 home win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night.
RJ Barrett scored 30 points, Zion Williamson had 27 and No. 1 Duke beat No. 4 Virginia 72-70 on Saturday night to give the Cavaliers their first loss of the season.
On a night when he wasn't even meant to play, Raptors all-star Kyle Lowry added to his legacy. Lowry, 32, has been at or near the top of the assists chart all season. Now the veteran point guard finds himself in select company after recording his 5,000th career assist.
Pascal Siakam drove to the basket for the winning bucket with no time remaining as the Toronto Raptors, despite squandering an early 16-point lead, hung on to edge the Phoenix Suns 111-109 on Thursday.
Spencer Dinwiddie scored 25 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and the Brooklyn Nets spoiled James Harden's 58-point night with a 145-142 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
The Golden State Warriors scored an NBA-record 51 points in the first quarter against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.
Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard was named the NBA's Eastern Conference player of the week on Monday, the sixth time he's earned the honour and second time this season with Toronto.
The Toronto Raptors said in a statement that the injury to centre Jonas Valanciunas's left thumb continues to improve, though the team did not provide a date for his return.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins is denying he used the word “gay” in describing Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder's behaviour during their game on Tuesday night.
Hailed as a hero. Lustily booed as a villain. Given a standing ovation for his contributions to the game. Vince Carter has heard it all from the vocal crowd in Toronto.
A nine-point outburst in the fourth quarter Sunday night was the punctuation mark on Norm Powell's return. Left out of coach Dwane Casey's rotation last season, then sidelined with a shoulder injury for 21 games this season, the 25-year-old Powell had become virtually the forgotten man on the Raptors' roster.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have fired coach Tom Thibodeau, halfway into his third season with the team that began with turmoil surrounding all-star Jimmy Butler.
Andrew Wiggins may not be a lock as the best Canadian player in the NBA currently as Jamal Murray has stepped up his level of play.
The Toronto Raptors and San Antonio Spurs square off on Thursday night for the first time since their trade this off-season that saw DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a first-round pick head to the Spurs in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. But who got the better end of the deal?
Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has received pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory injections for lower-back soreness, the team announced Tuesday.
Fred VanVleet doesn't believe in New Year's resolutions. If he did, playing with a greater sense of urgency in 2019 would be one. His Raptors teammate Danny Green agrees, saying it's time for the NBA club to step on the gas, regardless of injuries.
