In an effort to fight the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the NBA has suspended its season indefinitely. We’ll continue to update this page as more information is announced.
The Toronto Raptors got off to a rocky start after joining the NBA as an expansion team in 1995. The franchise spent its first three seasons at the bottom of the division. But over the years, the team has developed into a thriving franchise, taking home its first championship in 2019.
Vince Carter turned things around after joining the team in 1998. He helped the Raptors reach their first playoff berth in the 1999-2000 season. Carter went on to make five All-Star appearances on behalf of the franchise, and he even took home the 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest crown.
The team started to pick up steam with the acquisition of Kawhi Leonard. Forming a dynamic partnership with All-Star guard Kyle Lowry, Leonard led the Raptors to their first conference and NBA championship wins during the 2018-19 season.
Sportsnet broadcasts several Toronto Raptors games (41 games to be precise), although regional and national blackouts apply. Plus, you have to be located in Canada to access the channel. To watch Toronto Raptors games broadcast on national TV, tune into ESPN, NBA TV or TNT.
