Tuesday November 24 2009 – 4:03pm Eastern – Toronto, ON

Getting set to to head down to the ACC for the Pacers and Raptors … here are a couple of key stories and numbers to get ya primed and ready for the game

BANGED UP BODIES?

Amir Johnson (knee), Marco Belinelli (groin), and Antoine Wright (ankle) are all considered game-time decisions for tonight.

THE LINE IS THE KEY

Free Throw Attempts per game this season:

Chris Bosh (TOR) – 11.8
Dwyane Wade (MIA) – 11.1
Carmelo Anthony (DEN) – 10.5
Lebron James (CLE) – 10.3
Dwight Howard (ORL) – 10.3

But it’s not just Bosh getting to the line.  The Raptors – as a TEAM – are doing a solid jump going after the freebies as well.  We’ll see if the trend continues against the Pacers tonight.

1. Denver – 32.8
2. Indiana – 29.0
3. Memphis – 28.8
4. Toronto – 28.0
5. Washington – 27.8

Last season the Raptors were 25TH in the league (22.7 attempts per game)
