Generally, as Bosh goes, so do the Raptors. And last night at the Bradley Center, Bosh was a few notches below sub-par, scoring a grand total of one point, on 0-for-4 shooting from the floor, with two rebounds and three turnovers. Toronto, 2-2, now has lost two games in a row after opening the season with a win over Philadelphia and a huge 106-69 victory over the Nets in New Jersey. The Raptors are playing like they have split personalities.
Starting centre Andrea Bargnani, who has been arguably Toronto’s best player so far this season, played only 13 minutes, scoring five with three boards. Forward Kris Humphries did provide a spark off the bench, scoring 16 with nine rebounds. Juan Dixon added 20 off the bench.
On a positive note, as difficult as it was to find one, Jason Kapono’s three-pointer in the first quarter last night established Toronto as the first team in NBA history to go 700 consecutive games with a three-pointer made. The Raptors set the NBA record for most consecutive games with at least one three-point field on March 12, 2006, giving them 595 straight games.
Orlando’s Dwight Howard has four straight double-doubles and is coming off his best effort of the young season. That could be bad news for Toronto, as its own All-Star forward still is recovering from an injury. Howard collected season highs of 28 points and 16 rebounds to lead Orlando (3-1) to a 111-103 victory over Minnesota on Tuesday. He’s shooting over 65.2 percent (15-of-23) from the field to help the Magic win the first two games of their four-game road trip, which concludes Friday in New York.
I m pretty sure tonight could be a turning point for Raptors performance . It s hard to say if they can caover a spread 0f 5 points , but for sure they have to score big time against Orl. It s hard to do it from close range , that s why i guess they need to try the long range …
