Post Daily Raptor Dish - 22.03.10







Bosh back in business


Quote:
Bosh was asked after the game if he felt he got back to playing the way he did before he got injured.
“I had a couple of good games before,” Bosh objected. “It’s just playing basketball. Sometimes shots go in and sometimes they don’t. I just always try to play well, try to stay with it and just keep playing hard no matter what happens.”
Bosh may believe that, but even those sharing the same locker room noticed a definite up tick in his game on Saturday.
“We haven’t seen Chris like that in a while,” head coach Jay Triano said. “That alone is huge for us especially when I don’t think Turk or Andrea played particularly well. He got it going tonight and that’s when we roll. We haven’t seen him play like this since he came back from his injury.”
Triano wasn’t alone in this assessment. Antoine Wright, one of the guys Bosh referenced as getting him amped up for the what turned out to be a 36-point night, saw a different Bosh too.
“I think he might have been questioning some of his shot selection just because he was a little rusty coming back,” Wright said of Bosh’s play the past couple of weeks. “So then he tends not to play his game. His game is to shoot that elbow jump shot, face guys up, get to the basket and when he’s playing like that we’re a much better team






Feschuk: Time for Jay Triano to take a stand


Quote:
This, of course, brings up a core issue in Raptorland: Colangelo, the Raptors' president and general manager who selected Bargnani with the No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft and who gifted the kid a generous contract extension about a year ago, has much invested in seeing Bargnani succeed. The investment can't simply be measured in cap space – it's more like a mountain of pride and ego and Colangelo's very human desire to prove his costly faith in Bargnani is well-founded. And Triano is clearly beholden to Colangelo for his very existence as an NBA head coach.
But Triano, if he wants a career as an NBA head coach beyond this, has to make his own decisions here. No one is saying they're easy decisions. He can't bench the whole team. The options in reserve aren't particularly appealing. Every win is important.
But if you won't sit a guy against the Nets, when are you going to sit him? And if you don't recognize that defence will be the story of this season, understand that the Raptors, with Saturday's 100-90 win, have now won 27 consecutive games in which they've held teams to under 100 points, the longest current streak in the NBA. As offensively potent as the Raptors are, all they need to do is play a tiny bit of defence. It's not a Herculean requirement. Half the teams in the league are holding opponents under 100 this season. Triano, at some point, has to make it known that he won't stand for all the standing around while the other team scores and rebounds at will.
Bargnani hasn't been the only slacker during the ongoing slump. Chris Bosh has apparently decided to recommence playing like an all-star, but Hedo Turkoglu continued to loaf through his early retirement in Saturday's first half, after which he somehow earned the second-half luxury of 16 minutes, second-most on the team.
For playing him, Triano got to hear Turkoglu spend another post-game scrum complaining about his miscast role to any U.S.-based scribe who cared to listen. At some point, that has to stop. Turkoglu has to start playing hard. Such is the reality of guaranteed contracts that Triano has but one card to play, and it's playing time.
But don't take it from the media. As Reggie Evans, the Raptors forward, was saying on Saturday: ``We're playing like we're in a rec league – prima donna-style basketball. That's what we're playing right now."

Q: Is it just me, or does Antoine Wright have 'Future Coach' written all over him? The man understands what it takes to win, and communicates it more clearly and confidently then most actual coaches in league. Thoughts? Perhaps he's got a little Sam Mitchell in him?
Love your work Doug. Hope the Super Family and you are enjoying the weather!!
Joey H, Toronto
A: Antoine’s just turned 26 years old, I imagine he’s thinking more about his next contract than his next career.
But I do think he’s got some knowledge of the game and, if he wants, I’m sure he’d eventually find himself a coaching gig somewhere based on his knowledge, willingness to ruffle feathers while making a point and his enjoyment of being around the game.
-
Q: It seems Triano's new Quick Hook philosophy is the same one Sam Mitchell had from the get go of his tenure and he was criticized for hindering Bargnani's development.
I respectfully submit that getting pulled for poor play is a necessary part of player development. Could you assess Triano's development as a coach thus far? Is he still figuring out his philosophy as an NBA head coach?
Dan P, Baltimore
A: I think he’s still a work in progress, figuring out a very difficult job (I can’t imagine managing a collection of egos and personalities with such disparate skills would be easy) and is probably a better coach today than he was on opening night.
I’m not sure he has a “philosophy” fully developed – and that’s a bit of problem. But it’s also something that comes with time.








Raptors Game Day


Quote:
Toronto at Minnesota 8 p.m., Target Center TV: TSN 2 Radio: Fan 590
THE RAPTORS
Who's hot? Chris Bosh regained his form in New Jersey, scoring 36 points in a win over the hapless Nets.
Who's not? Starting centre Andrea Bargnani has collected a miniscule seven rebounds in the last two games.
THE TIMBERWOLVES
Who's hot? Darko Milicic is coming off his first double-double of the season on Friday against the Lakers. Darko lives!
Who's not? Corey Brewer has made just eight of his last 25 field-goal attempts (32%).




Wolves-Toronto game preview


Quote:
Preview: The Raptors are 3-10 since Feb. 24 and are clinging to the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, with four consecutive playoff teams ahead, so they need a victory. History says they've come to the right place: Toronto has won 11 consecutive games against the Wolves dating to November 2003. Minnesota's overall losing streak stands at 12.
Players to watch: Raptors F Chris Bosh ranks eighth in the league in scoring (24.1 points per game), sixth in rebounding (11.1) and piled up 36 points in the Raptors' last game.
Numbers: The Raptors are 20-0 when holding opponents to fewer than 100 points. ... Toronto has a 2-12 record in Western Conference arenas.

I like these lines:

For playing him, Triano got to hear Turkoglu spend another post-game scrum complaining about his miscast role to any U.S.-based scribe who cared to listen. At some point, that has to stop. Turkoglu has to start playing hard."

"As Reggie Evans, the Raptors forward, was saying on Saturday: ``We're playing like we're in a rec league – prima donna-style basketball. That's what we're playing right now."

Both are very true
