Post Daily Raptor Dish - 07.04.10







Raps lose Bosh, game



Quote:
An inadvertent elbow to Chris Bosh’s face has suddenly pushed the Raptors’ playoff push on to the backburner.
Suddenly, the future of Bosh becomes more important than whether the Raptors can hold off the Chicago Bulls for the eighth and the final playoff spot in the East.
Suddenly, the future of the Raptors now comes into question.
The face of the Raptors who has faced criticism and been forced to shoulder a lot, Bosh took an accidental elbow barely three minutes into Tuesday’s tip against the host Cavaliers when Antawn Jamison struck Bosh on an innocent play that wasn’t even designed for Jamison.
There was no malice, no intent, Jamison was merely cutting across the lane when he hit Bosh, who was bleeding profusely and who was in obvious discomfort.
There was no malice, no intent, Jamison was merely cutting across the lane when he hit Bosh, who was bleeding profusely and who was in obvious discomfort.
Jamison left his feet thinking a pass was intended for him, when in fact the ball was a skip pass for Anthony Parker on the left baseline.
According to the Raptors, Cavs physician Dr. Richard Parker did an on-site exam in the visitor’s locker room before Bosh was whisked to the Cleveland Clinic for a CAT scan.
The initial interpretation, according to the Raptors, showed a maxilla and nasal fracture to the right side of his face.
In layman’s terms, Bosh has a broken nose.








Feschuk: Bosh's broken jaw a huge blow to Raptors



Quote:
Hours after Chris Bosh broke his face and his nose in a freak on-court accident on Tuesday night, the Raptors all-star sat on a table in the visitors' training room at Quicken Loans Arena.
There was a phone glued to Bosh's ear and a piece of gauze protruding from Bosh's right nostril, just some of the fallout from an inadvertent elbow he'd received from Cavaliers forward Antawn Jamison about two minutes into Toronto's 113-101 loss. The blow sent a bloodied Bosh reeling on the hardwood and, soon after, to hospital for a CAT scan that would reveal fractures on the right side of his nose and face.
And though it was difficult to say with any certainty the severity of Bosh's injury or how long he will be sidelined, his teammates were left to assume that, with five games remaining in the regular season and the Raptors clinging to a one-game lead over Chicago for the East's final playoff spot, they'll be holding down the fort without their best player for a while. As the Raptors took their playoff drive back to Toronto for Wednesday's game against the Boston Celtics, the club said in a statement that Bosh would remain in hospital in Cleveland on Tuesday night for “for further evaluation and treatment.” Bosh, though he chatted and texted as medical personnel and team officials checked on him, declined to speak to the media.








Raptors lose Bosh in loss to Cavs



Quote:
To their credit, the Raptors didn’t fold against Cleveland. Instead, they briefly looked as though they would steal a badly needed game from the unsuspecting Cavaliers, who have clinched home-court advantage throughout the playoffs and are now trying to strike a balance in keeping their key players rested and healthy without losing their edge.
Toronto trailed by nine after the first quarter but cut the Cavs’ lead to 55-53 at half. But in the third quarter, LeBron James, the NBA’s leading scorer at 29.7 points a game, turned playmaker, dishing six of his game-high 12 assists as the Cavaliers shot 71.4 per cent for the quarter.
By this time, the Raptors were also without Antoine Wright, who re-aggravated an ankle injury, though he said he’s hopeful to play tonight.
“If you show and pay attention to [James], he’s going to pick you apart,” said Raptors head coach Jay Triano. “There’s a reason they’re 34-2 in their last 36 games here.”
James finished with 19 points to go along with his 13 helpers as Cleveland had a season-high 38 assists on the night. They shot 56 per cent with seven players in double figures. Toronto was led by Jarrett Jack, who had 23 points and six assists off the bench as Toronto shot 47 per cent from the floor.








Raptors lose Bosh, then lose game



Quote:
With just five games remaining, and the Chicago Bulls right on the Raptors' heels for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot, any games Bosh misses could be a death blow. The Raptors were 3-4 without Bosh earlier in the year, but the wins came over patsy opponents. And Toronto's next two opponents, Boston and Atlanta, are no patsies.

The Bulls, meanwhile, missed a chance to pull even with the Raptors, falling 79-74 to Milwaukee Tuesday night. Chicago remains a game behind Toronto, which is essentially a two-game deficit as the Raptors own the season-series tie-breaker.

Things got even worse following the Bosh injury, as Antoine Wright hurt his right ankle after stepping on teammate Jarrett Jack's foot. He tried to play through it, but left the game in the third quarter and did not return.

The Raptors have certainly put themselves in this precarious playoff position with unfocused play, but the luck, for one night, was horrid.

Of course, the Raptors might have very well been hopeless before the game started. Not only were they getting the 60-win Cavaliers, the best team in the league, but they were getting them pretty much at full strength.

She's alright by me.

The SSG kind of looks like a young Sheryl Crow.
