On this week’s edition of RaptorBlog Radio, we discuss game-winners from DeMar DeRozan and Kyrie Irving, the never ending point guard saga in Toronto, how Rajon Rondo’s season-ending ACL tear changes things in the East and as always, we look ahead to a tough week that includes games against the Warriors, Hawks, Clippers and Heat.

On the heels of the Raptors’ big victory over the “mighty” Lakers (can’t even say that with a straight face anymore), Drew, Oliver and I got together to discuss the W and to pretend Friday night in Philly never happened. We also touched on Landry Fields’ performance, Ed Davis’ lack of fourth quarter minutes and DeMar DeRozan’s recent slump.
As usual, we conclude by looking at the week ahead, as the Raptors prepare for the Heat, Magic and Cavaliers.

With his colourful on-air personality, Chuck Swirsky’s name became synonymous with Raptors basketball in Canada for many years. So with Swirsky’s Bulls in town to take on the Raptors tonight, Oliver and I caught up with Chuck to discuss the Raptors as a whole, Jose Calderon, Andrea Bargnani, Bryan Colangelo, Sam Mitchell, Derrick Rose and tonight’s game.
Enjoy 15 minutes of Chuck today in lieu of the usual game thread…

A day after a frustrating loss to the Bucks, Drew, Oliver and I got together to discuss what went wrong, Kyle Lowry’s puzzling play at the point, the sparkling combination of Amir Johnson and Ed Davis and what to expect from the Raptors this week, including their meeting with Steve Nash and the Lakers on Sunday.
In addition, we had a chance to speak to Jamaal Magloire about Toronto’s big men – Ed, Amir, Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas.
On the first 2013 episode of RaptorBlog Radio, Drew, Oliver and I got together to discuss what went right for the Raptors in their recent run, what’s gone wrong in the last two games, what lineup changes need to be made, whether the Raptors have realistically gotten themselves back into playoff contention, and as always, we wrap up by looking at the week ahead.
