Today in Raptorland - 2/7/09



Hornets' late charge stings Raptors again

Quote:
The Raptors could only watch, as they ended up wasting another solid effort from Jermaine O'Neal.

O'Neal was threatening to take over the game early in the tight fourth quarter. With Bosh out, he emerged as Toronto's primary offensive threat. O'Neal had 10 points in the fourth quarter's first six minutes, including two old-fashioned three-point plays. He finished with a team-high 24 points.

But as New Orleans went on its run, O'Neal did not get one offensive look for three full minutes. By the time he did, it was far too late.
Raptors Game Day

Quote:
Who's hot? Joey Graham scored a career-best 24 points Wednesday in a losing cause against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Who's not? Jason Kapono missed three shots in just 14 minutes against the Lakers. Perhaps Triano is losing faith in the sharpshooter.


Hornets sting Bosh-less Raptors

Quote:
Just 2:53 had run off the clock, the Hornets had put up 17 points in a row and the game was effectively over.

"They hit one, two and all of a sudden they were rolling," said Triano. "And it wasn't one guy. Stojakovic had seven in the game but he only had one in that flurry. Butler, Devin Brown, who's a 29 per cent shooter, had one. They just hit them."
Hornets bury the Bosh-less Raptors from long range

Quote:
There is no indication when Bosh will be back in the lineup – the team is listing him as day-to-day – just like there was no indication of any single incident that caused the injury.

“There wasn’t a particular movement (in the Wednesday game against the Lakers) or something where I was like ‘something’s wrong,’” Bosh said Friday morning. “I was just running and it just didn’t feel right.”

The 24-year-old has been saying all season that he’s doing more preventive work on his joints this season after being troubled by aches and pains in each of the last two seasons. He started wearing compression sleeves and braces earlier in the season, before any significant discomfort popped up, but that obviously wasn’t enough.

“I think it’s just wear and tear. I tried to do everything I could … trying to make sure I did the right exercises and everything. Unfortunate things happen and this is where we are right now,” he said.

“I keep telling people, I haven’t had a free summer in three years so that could have something to do with it.”


Raps won't rush Bosh

Quote:
Chris Bosh likely won't play until Tuesday at the earliest and might be shut down until after the NBA all-star game. His sprained right knee cost him his first start in 51 games this season last night in New Orleans and will keep him out of this evening's match in Memphis as well.

"(The Raptors training staff) broke it down for me that if you don't pay particular attention to it, it could get a lot worse," Bosh said.
Raptors bug out

Quote:
Coming off of a near upset of the Lakers at home on Wednesday, the Raptors last night went to a zone defence after a shockingly flat start. But a second take-charge game by Jermaine O'Neal and a 13-point spurt from Jose Calderon had Toronto up by 11 at one stage.

"Overall offensively, I can't complain about how we did," Triano said of O'Neal's 24 points. "It would be nice to have Chris, but everyone has to step up."

After three games against a Murderers Row of all-stars -- LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant, who averaged 32.6 points in wins over Toronto -- the Raps faced neither Hornets' MVP Chris Paul nor 7-foot-1 Tyson Chandler. But that meant only that Stojakovic, David West and James Posey would have a bigger say. Meanwhile, Andrea Bargnani (19 points) and Joey Graham (three) ebbed and flowed like the Mississippi River all night for the visitors.

Bosh was a reluctant spectator in street clothes, for the first time in 51 games this season. As the Raptors called a second-quarter timeout, down 14 and shooting 8-for-20, he paced the sidelines trying to keep up morale.
