Default Toronto Star: Coach wants Raptors to stop passing up shots

Jay Triano stopped short of wishing for a bunch of shot-happy chuckers on his Raptors roster.


In trying to make sense of some abysmal shooting of late 2-for-20 from three-point range in their final pre-season game, a 98-90 loss to Minnesota on Friday the team's head coach is looking for a bit more "me" and a little less "we" to get the percentages up to even mediocre.

"I think they're trying to fit so well that they're making unnecessary passes," Triano said yesterday. "What's happening is these guys want to learn each other and they want to get along with each other so well that I'm almost at the point now where we have to be a little bit more selfish."
