Glendale Raptors end their nearly year-long winning streak

Let’s have a quick moment of silence for the Glendale Raptors winning streak, please. It ended on Saturday in Berkeley, California. Tries from Hali Dieters, Kristen Shalosky and Kelly Mullen helped flip a 10-0 deficit to a 19-15 lead over Berkeley All Blues in the second half. But the All Blues scored a try and conversion in the waning minutes and ended the fun, 22-19. Darn. Now...

Toronto Raptors forward Terrence Ross was rightfully called for a double dribble when he couldn't get his steps right on a fast break dunk attempt during Sunday night's preseason game against the L.A.

Raptors 905 Is Huge For Bruno Caboclo

The Mad Ants weren't really interested in developing teenagers and rather than getting some much needed playing time, the Toronto Raptors rookie Bruno Caboclo was treated to a string of DNP-CDs. The Mad Ants did successfully crush his confidence and send a young player back to Toronto who played worse than before he was farmed out. An owned D-League franchise is going to be huge...
