Raptors @ Rockets
“Alice Fazoolis” Player of the Game:
- We did not have a player join us, but if we did, it would have been …
“Smith and Jones” Player of the Game:
- LUIS SCOLA
Shout-out to the Raptors:
- CHRIS BOSH
Stats that stood out:
- After leading by 12 in the 1ST QRT and holding a 6-point bulge at the end of the 1ST, Toronto gives up 37 to the Rockets in the 2ND and their lead disappears for good.
- Toronto’s bench (Kapono, Voskuhl, Ukic, Graham) was just 6 for 24 from the field.
- Points in the Paint: 60-30 Houston
- Toronto with just * 2 * Fast Break Points
- Landry ties a career-high with his 22 points
- Jose Calderon ties a career-high with 16 assists
- The 1-2 punch of Bosh and Andrea Bargnani combined for 50 points and 14 rebounds and they looked good early against Yao Ming (the big man was sucking wind, big-time). But as the game wore on, the B’s simply weren’t big enough to contain Ming, Landry, and Scola.
- Bench Scoring: 6 for 24 from the field (Kapono with the bulk of it at 3 of 11), and Anthony Parker struggling in the starting line up tonioght with just 3 points on 1 for 8 shooting.
- “A disappointing road trip (0-3) comes mercifully comes to an end. Man, this week-long trip felt like about a month!”
“V-Tech” 3-In-To-Win Give-Away:
The Raptors were 7 of 21 from 3PT range
