Midway through his first season in Toronto, Hedo Turkoglu hasn’t really been lights out in terms of numbers or his comfort level. In fact, his average points is at its lowest it has been since the 03-04 season at 13.1.
Turkoglu says through the second half of the season, perhaps having more of an aggressive state of mind might go a long way.
“All I have to is keep myself ready and try to be more aggressive and try to get myself more out from the get-go” says Turkoglu. “Hopefully they will stretch me out throughout the game and hopefully I will feel much better.”
Turkoglu missed Wednesday’s practise as he nursed a sore back. He was back on the floor on Thursday and will not miss any time.
Bosh vs. N.Y.
For the most part, Chris Bosh hasn’t really had to address his future beyond this year.
But as the Raptors head to New York, he will no doubt be surrounded by questions filled with trade rumours and all sorts of speculation.
Bosh says New York is like everywhere else, but magnified.
“A lot of people covered the Knicks, there are lots of papers, lots of channels, lots of everything in New York” says Bosh.
Bosh also says he doesn’t know of any specific media requests yet, but he will treat this trip like any other.
