The Raptors may play behind closed doors, but their famous mascot is still in the room. It is one of the best known, and the Raptors have always highlighted their mascot with a few well-crafted numbers. But tonight, Raptor ended up on the corner, literally and figuratively.

” I was trying to free him, and it worked… I was happy to shoot without him being there. Every day we do shooting drills in practice, and these two do the same, and I’m complaining too. I am like this. ”
