A cause-effect conundrum


Quote:

But the letdown defensively when the Raptors aren't connecting at the other end of the floor only exacerbates their defensive shortcomings. When they are clicking offensively, they do tend to be much more active defensively.
Defence and effort go hand in hand and, without the latter, the former suffers.
Chris Bosh was asked about it following Sunday's home loss to Orlando and was shaking his head before the question was even finished.
"That should never happen," said Bosh definitively of a poor shooting game morphing into an equally poor defensive effort. "That should never happen," he repeated before admitting it has with this group already this season.
"I think we get down and it's something we have to get out of," Bosh said. "Quite honestly, I think we let our offence affect our defence and that can't happen. No matter how bad your offence is, if they don't score and we don't score, the game is tied. That's the kind of mentality you have to take.
"Sometimes your shot isn't going to go in every game, but you can't control that. You can control how hard you run back. You can control putting a body on your guy. You can control going to get the ball and beating your guy to the ball."
Bosh doesn't consider fatigue or a lack of energy because of back-to-back games an excuse for the effort he saw Wednesday night.
"They outworked us in every aspect of the game," he said








Feschuk: A case of déjà vu for Raptors


Quote:

They won't be commemorating the milestone in this city's Garden on Friday night, but in-tune fans and a certain well-paid man of leisure will surely note its passing.
Jay Triano, the first and only Canadian to coach an NBA team, will be on the bench for his 82nd game as a big-league head coach when his Raptors face the Celtics, symbolic of Triano's first full season at the helm.
And if Triano hopes to keep pace with the career arc of Sam Mitchell – his argumentative predecessor in the gig – the Raptors must rise to the tall order of beating the 11-4 Bostonians.
Mitchell, still collecting a salary of approximately $4 million (U.S.) this season after being fired in the wake of a 39-point loss to Denver a year ago this week, went 33-49 in his first 82 games as Toronto's head coach.
Triano's career record, after coaching the Raptors to a season-worst 35-point loss in Charlotte on Wednesday, stands at 32-49.
It's an interesting similarity, to be sure. Yes, the chemistry is still developing on a roster with nine new faces. And yes, Hedo Turkoglu, the prized off-season acquisition of Bryan Colangelo, the Raptors' president and GM, is still easing into form. But in the meantime, you can easily argue the only thing that has truly changed since Mitchell was replaced is this: The new coach, unlike the old coach, is an agreeable sort who never publicly contradicts management.









Raptors Game Day


Quote:

THE RAPTORS
Who's hot? During an otherwise awful night for Toronto, Amir Johnson had 13 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and two steals Wednesday against Charlotte.
Who's not? The rest of the Raptors combined to shoot 24-for-78 (31%) from the field and allow the offensively impotent Bobcats to score 116 points.
THE CELTICS
Who's hot? Paul Pierce's coach, Doc Rivers, threw around those three special letters -- MVP -- after the forward's 27-point, six-rebound, six-assist, 43-minute performance against Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Who's not? Ray Allen, owner of one of the sweetest strokes in NBA history, is shooting 29% from three-point territory this year. Let that marinate.

Scouting report: Raptors at Celtics


Quote:
BOTTOM LINE The Raptors like to score, but they’ve given up more than 100 points in each of their last seven games. The Celtics should be able to get their offense healthy against this team, but it’ll take patience they haven’t yet shown consistently

Feshuk's article scares me. Things are eerily similar to last season. If they get a big lead tonight only to squander it late, it's going to be a little freaky.
