Arrow Raptors Fall To 0-3 In Back-To-Backs, 18 More Remain On Schedule

A tired Toronto team was soundly defeated by the Bobcats in Charlotte by the final score of a 116-81 one night after they beat the Pacers at home by a final score of 123-112.

The Raptors are now 0-3 in the second end of back-to-back sets this season have two games in two nights 18 more times this season.

"You can use the excuse of getting in at 2:30 (a.m.) and the fact that they've been sitting here after two days' practising, but at some point you've ... got to find the energy," said Jay Triano.

"I know it's tough, but this is the NBA. We can't just mail in the back-to-backs."

The answer for what the Raptors can do differently to combat fatigue isn't inherently clear.

"Maybe we're going to have to throw in a bit of zone (defence) to try and save guys' legs that have played big minutes the night before," said Wright.

Said Triano: "I have no idea. I'm trying to figure it out. We usually let them sleep until noon. Maybe we wake them up and we practise.

"I don't know if that helps or hurts the cause.

"I'm just trying to figure out a way to see if we can be better on the back-to-back nights."

If you watched the Magic at Hawks game last night you saw the Magic win on their back to back. The funny part was that their 35 year 3rd stringer Johnson carried them in the second half for the win. Maybe we give Banks some burn lol also the Magic for the longest time had 4 bench players with superman on the floor at the same time . They came back and over turned a 13 point deficet.
