===============================================

Key Possessions which determined the W-L result:

Some NBA games are decided during the first 5 minutes of the 3rd Quarter   … like this one, when

12:00-07:35 … Toronto scored on 7 of their first 8 possessions in the 2nd Half (87.5%); while preventing New York from scoring on 7 of their first 8 possessions (13.5%) … rapidly extending their intermission lead from 3 to 17 pts (TOR 72, Nyk 55)

Key Raptors: Jose Calderon (2-2, FGA/100.0%; 2-2, 3FGA/100.0%; 1 Rb), Andrea Bargnani (2-3, FGA/66.7%; 1-2, 3FGA/50.0%; 2 Ast; 1 BS), Anthony Parker (2-2, FGA/100.0%; 1-1, 3FGA/100.0%), Jamario Moon (1 Ast; 1 BS) & Chris Bosh (1-1, FGA/100.0%; 3 Rbs; 1 Ast) 

Vital Components:
– when the Raptors start the 2nd Half with this type of execution – Defensively, Offensively & Rebounding – led by their two best players, Bosh & Calderon, Toronto is an ‘above average’ team in the Eastern Conference, and a far superior squad to the stumbling, bumbling Knicks.

Next Game:
@ Indiana, 22-34 (Mon Feb 25)
