Atlanta Hawks at Toronto
Monday, October 31st at 7:30 pm ET 

One of the NBA’s brightest talents visits Toronto as the Raptors host Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks. Buoyed by offseason acquisition Dejonte Murray, the Hawks are a young team on the rise looking to enter the Eastern Conference’s elite…just like the Raptors.

Toronto Raptors at San Antonio Spurs
Wednesday, November 2nd at 8 pm ET 

The Raptors head to Texas on a 2-game road trip and face a San Antonio Spurs squad that’s off to a good start to the season but is clearly tanking for super prospect Victor Wembanyama. Keldon Johnson leads the way for San Antonio in scoring, but he could run into many problems facing the Raptor’s stout defence.

Toronto Raptors at Dallas Mavericks
Friday, November 4th at 8:30 pm ET

The Mavericks host the Raptors, and Nick Nurse has a true test on his hands trying to contain Luka Doncic. Doncic is a walking triple-double; at only 23 years old he just passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth most in NBA history. 

Chicago Bulls at Toronto Raptors
Sunday, November 6th at 6 pm ET 

The Raptors return from a mini Texas road trip to take on DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls. DeRozan still has a lot left in the tank averaging over 20 ppg. Bulls big man Nikola Vucevic has given Toronto a lot of trouble since Marc Gasol left the squad and will challenge the Rap’s smaller lineups to protect the paint.
