Default Ulmer: Wright Can do no Wrong

Mike Ulmer, take it away!

Quote:
Antoine Wright can be anyone.

“Every day in practice he is somebody different,” said Raps coach Jay Triano. “He was Tyreke Evans the other day. We knew he had to guard Evans and we thought that if Antoine was Evans in practice it would help him. It did.”

Yes, it did. Central to the Raptors defeat of Sacramento Sunday was the job Wright did on Evans. The Kings splendid rookie was limited to 11 points. Wright had 16 including a dozen in the fourth quarter.

Wright’s statistics are modest enough: 5.56 points per game and .413 field goal percentage. But he was skilled enough to start 53 of 65 games with the Dallas Mavericks last season. This time around, Wright has averaged just shy of 20 minutes per contest and is playing about five minutes less per game than he did with the Mavs.

And yet, Wright is a vital cog in a Raptors machine that has was four of its last five games.
Quote:
I don’t know if upset was the word I would use,” he said. “I was just kind of frustrated just because of the amount of talent that we had and the fact that we were playing in spurts. Now, everyone has honed into what we want to do and bought into the system. Everybody is really comfortable in their roles.”

“We had nine new guys and you can’t expect to bring a team together in six weeks. Guys getting hurt and getting back in the lineup, that made it harder,” he said.

I can proudly say that he's one guy I've supported since he joined this team. I've been a fan since he called out his teammates earlier on in the season
