  • Greatest Toronto Games

    Everyone, post the best games of the Toronto Raptors, where the whole arena was packed and the crowd was crazy! I only started watching in 2011 so I wanna watch the great moments of the past!

    06-07 playoffs, game 2, at home vs Vince and the Nets. We won. I was watching at a sports bar and it was madness there, we were chanting Defense and screaming after made 3's, I can only imagine what the live sounds at the arena was that night. When the confetti fell at the end of the game it was one of the most satisfying moments watching as a fan.

    Loudest I've experienced myself might actually be Terrence Ross' 51 point night vs Clippers this year, but that might just be fresh in my mind.

      Jeremy Lin's buzzer beater

      Right in the middle of Linsanity and the crowd was hyped about that shot, it was really cool to see live and I couldn't help but cheer for the kid!

        Game 3 and 4 of the 2008 playoffs. Absolutely electric.

          Watching Howard slay goofy Bargs is just sad.

            Made a thread similar to this a couple of months ago. My all time fave Raptors game was the game against the Nuggets. VC vs Van Exel.

              geez as a die hard raps fan since 1998 & product of the VC era...most of the great franchise games i'd say happened in the early 2000's.
              1. Carter dropping 51 points in a win over Phx on NBC national tv
              2. First Playoff series win over the Knicks in Game 5 in 2001
              3. MoPete's buzzer beater against the Wizards to send the game to OT

                One of the best, but also worst for me, was against Boston. Can't remember when exactly, 2009 or 2010 I think. Went to double overtime (I think) in Boston. Best because Bargs just killed it. He almost led us to an upset against the Big Three Celtics on the road; he kept hitting huge shot after huge shot. Worst because this game alone made me stick in his corner much longer than I should have, and who knows, maybe Colangelo too.

                  This wasn't at the ACC, but still....listen to the crowd erupt:



                  Oh, and Carter ended up hitting the game-winning 3 at the buzzer.

                    Still can't believe we'll be back, THIS year, with a good team (we are not in no mans land, people). Cannot wait to bring the noise back to Canada!

                      OH man, I was pissed after that game lol. We were the team that was supposed to stop Linsanity and we actually were on our way, but Dwayne Casey failed to make adjustments, unlike the Knicks where they had Shumpert on Calderon. Can't remember who was our best perimeter defender though at that time though (James Johnson? Barbosa?). And when he hit the game winner, all the fans just erupted like someone from the Raptors hit the game winner. Probably folks from Agincourt and/or Markham lol.


                      My best game though would be the Indiana game last year at Indiana. We were down most for most of the game, Psycho T hacked Jonas who was just coming from an injury, Bargs and Hibbert were jawing, Rudy Gay's steal of West's pass a la Mo Pete and Michael Ruffin, Amir's buzzer beater to force OT, and that Gay game-winner in OT over Paul George.

                        Haha I remember that. I was so upset that game, because I wanted the Raptors to end the Linsanity streak. But it was an awesome moment, and Im actually happy Lin's biggest moment occurred here in Toronto. I laugh when I see the highlights, and you would think that the game was in New York given how the crowd erupted.

                        Its funny how so many game winners come off of that straight-on 3 pointer. You would think that a method would be developed to guard that and any possible drive/ and kick by now.
                        I know this may be a bit controversial but I think the Raptors have proven that they're the best team in the NBA from Canada

                          Playoff games like the ones against Orlando and New Jersey were loud. I was also at the first game against Philly after they eliminated us from the Eastern Final the previous year, and it was a great atmosphere.

                            Mike Breen and the U.S. national announcers were blown away at how loud the ACC was during that Philly series.

                              Like a lot of kids my age, I was a Bulls fan in the Jordan days. Of course, Toronto got a team of their own and that changed things for me, but you can be sure that I watched every second of this game. Nobody would have told you going in that it would have ended the way it did.
