Some NBA games are decided during a specific ‘sub-set’ of possessions during the 4th Quarter   … like this one, when

… the Raptors:

Answered Granger’s 3 – that put the Pacers up by 2 pts (Tor 84, IND 86) – with a 3 of their own by Delfino (6-7, 3FGA/85.7%)
* Scored on their next 3 possessions
* Stopped the Pacers on their 3 corresponding possessions
* Answered Granger’s ‘2’ with a 2FG by Chris Bosh, which kept their lead at 6 pts (Tor 94, IND 88 … 04:43)

Key Raptors: Carlos Delfino (2-2, FGA/100.0%; 1-1, 3FGA/100.0%; 1-1, FTA/100.0%), TJ Ford (1-1, FGA/100.0%; 1 Rb), Anthony Parker (1 BS) & Chris Bosh (1-1, FGA/100.0%; 2-2, FTA/100.0%; 1 Rb; 1 Ast) 

Vital Components:
– Delfino, Bosh, Parker & Ford made the plays they needed to make during these 10 possessions for the Raptors to win this game vs an inferior opponent (that played 48 minutes with a ‘back-up‘ quality PG).

Next Game:
vs Minnesota, 11-43 (Wed Feb 27)
