BallnRoll’s Official Top-8 2021 Toronto Raptors Moments
This past year was unlike any other in Toronto Raptors history.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Raptors spent a chunk of the year away from home, down in Tampa Bay, playing their games at the Amalie Center. This season, they finally made their return home after 600 days away from the Scotiabank Arena. This year was surely not an easy one for the Raptors, but they battled through and are ready to jump right into 2022.
Before we get to 2022, let’s re-live some of the best and most memorable Raptors moments of 2021!
