Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    The Pacers have been waiting in Toronto for the Raptors since Saturday. Coming of an OT win in Chicago, they come in as the hottest team in the league, winners of their last 6. The last lost for the pesky team from Indianapolis came right here in Toronto on December 19th. They set the pace for the first 3 quarters before the Raptors switched to small ball in the final Q and the game came down to the final possession with a last second foul by OG going uncalled. Lets hope Drake did his job and took Cojo and the boys out for a night on the town.

    Your Raptors earned what has to be one of the top 3 wins of the season in Milwaukee Saturday night. After a sluggish few weeks we saw a performance reminiscent of the team we came to love early in the season. The starters all logged heavy minutes last night and with the status of both KL's unclear the raps will be looking for a spark from an unlikely source. Expect a tough game but if the raptors can play with the same energy they gave in the 2nd half in Milwaukee they will finish off a tough week with 3 out of 4 wins.

    Spot on. We need both Kawhi and Kyle and anyone who thinks just because the team seems to play well without Kawhi that means he's not really needed is crazy.
    It's gonna take a Kawhyle to build that championship chemistry.

    Where are these people who think this team doesn't need Kawhi?
    Also, this fan base continues to get so low and so high off individual games lol

    It's weird. I think Lowry actually has a higher impact on winning games than Kawhi does.

    The thing is though Lowry himself isn't like a match winner. You can't just give him the ball and tell him to go win the game for you in the clutch. But he does so many things that elevate the team as a whole that he has a massive impact on the result.

    I think we had DeRozan in that match winner role, now Kawhi's in it. We're still a good team without Kyle, but to be a great team we need him.

    Lowry is amazing. Whenever we have a win like last night where we say everybody had a good game, it's usually because Kawhi is out and Lowry goes to work orchestrating some beautiful offence to get everyone involved. His priority when playing with Kawhi has been Kawhi early in the season, but once those two are comfortable together and Lowry shifts to doing what he did last night even with Kawhi there, look out.

    He does so much for the offence. Even Monroe looked playable in those Lowry+bench units. Still looking forward to JV coming back, but having Lowry there to magically fix the offence sure makes that seem less urgent.
    I was thinking the same thing. The moment Kyle learns to play like this even when Kawhi is on the floor it's over. And it's crazy because you are right, Greg looked so much better today than he's looked all season and I believe a big part of that is Kyle. Oh how I missed him, so glad he's back.

    Another great game. Glad to see Lowry had his legs even though he was out for so long. Missed a wide open three, and passed one up that I believe turned into a turn over... but he dictated the flow of that game from beginning to end.

    Not sure why but we always do well against the Pacers. Yet they are having a fantastic season.

    Good to see Norm having another good game. He's totally redeeming himself from last year. It's like that curse went from him to CJ.

    Hope GoDaddy GoesBankrupt.

    3rd game in 4 nights.....

    Serge is bound to be a bit sore...
    Pascal .. well... this guys motor is incredible... he will again be at top speed...
    Freddy should be OK but he get spelled tonite with the return of Lowry.
    Green .. not sure but he is a pro and he is consistent..... expect the good defense and 6 to 8 points....

    OG/Wright/Powell/Monroe.. should be fresh as daisy's and looking to make amends for an offnight in Milwuakee ....hope they make a differnce tonight... if they do.... then the Raps are adding a W.
    Nailed it... except for Lowry coming back and causing the team to blow up in a good way.

    Nurse nailed his pj’s to the bench so it’s hard to hate on someone who doesn’t play.
    RR can always hate on him for the roster spot he's taking up for the $$$ he's making
    I hope he somehow finds his mojo but think it's too late for that. For now, I'd much rather see Boucher get his minutes
