Toronto Raptors Still Considering Protest of Loss

As of last night, the Raptors were still considering the benefit of filing a protest with the NBA based on the outcome of their game Wednesday in Atlanta, where it appeared the game clock started a fraction of a second too early and cost Toronto an apparent win.

Teams have 48 hours to lodge a protest and it costs $10,000 (U.S.) to submit it to the league office.
