Yup. Shocking. Nationally televised as well. Just fueling the fire for the US media.

They've just gone ice cold on offense the last few games. Missing open looks all over the place.

Good for DeRozan but also shows why team was frustrated with him.

Skill set to dominate everygame but doesn’t always have the drive or motivation to show this commitment on both ends do the court night in and night out.

To me thatís just typical regular season Derozan. Teams arenít playing lockdown D and he can eat them up from mid-range. Derozan becomes useless when teams force him to shoot 3s or drive to the net when the defensive intensity picks up in the playoffs.

Really good bounce back win here. Got back to moving the ball and knocking down shots.

Yup, beat a good team tonight. They were fired up after their last performance.

Minnesota has fired President and Coach Tom Thibodeau.

As much as JV is up and down, I think his absence is causing the Raptors problems in respect of chemistry amongst the units.

They are a better team with him in the mix.

Another win against a good team tonight. These last 2 wins are huge. Keeps the Raptors in 1st.

Also like how they are sticking to resting Kawhi.

Really needed those last two wins to calm the nerves of the fan base and keep the media at bay. They've been around a .500 team the last month or so with some bad losses in there, so stepping up with two very good performances against the top two other teams in the East sure helps.

Leonard won that game for the Raps. Great defense and clutch shooting.

Disappointing that the Raps were struggling that much to get a win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Why? They got a win on a night when they were slightly off, coming off of two huge wins against the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the conference.

I don't really get the negativity this year. Best record in the league despite dealing with injuries all season. New coach, new stars in Leonard and Siakam. I don't see why there should be all this negativity around the team based on them being ' the same ol' Raps' when they aren't the same team.

Jesus Christ. I think the Raptors are trying to set a record for miss field goals in a quarter. Should probably jack up another 3......

Cousins first Warriors start opens with a huge jam followed by three fouls in four minutes and yelling at the ref from the bench. Sounds like he's back.
