Where as some fans probably tune into their games either on mainstream TV or one dedicated channel, the Raps are practically off the grid and scattered all over cable. And the Raptors
have a younger audience. You'll see that at a game in the stands. That's a demographic more likely to use other means to watch than the most expensive cable package.
Look how many hardcore fans can't even see a great show like "Open Gym".
I think the number of fans who stream is extremely low (in toronto/canada at least). You have to be a real hardcore fan to put up with the shitty quality ...
but the simple truth is, even for hardcore fans it was hard to watch the last few years.
