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

Key Possessions which determined the W-L result:

Some NBA games are decided during a specific ’sub-set’ of possessions during the 2nd Quarter … like this one, when

(after Jose Calderon subbed back in for TJ Ford … 04:10)

during these 7 trips up & down the floor …

TOR 44, Min 41

02:53 … (1) TOR/Bosh was fouled & made 1 of 2 FTA’s
02:40 … (2) Min/Jefferson made a 2FGA
02:24 … (3) TOR/Moon made a Layup (Assist, Parker)
02:09 … (4) Min/Jefferson made a TO (Steal, Calderon)
01:57 … (5) TOR/Bargnani made a Layup (Assist, Calderon)
01:39 … (6) Min/Jefferson made a TO (Off. Foul)
01:33 … (7) TOR/Bosh was fouled & made 1 of 2 FTA

and the Raptors extended their lead to 8 pts (TOR 51, Min 43 … prior to Halftime … a deficit from which the T-Wolves never recovered)

Key Raptors: Jose Calderon (1 Ast; 1 Stl), Andrea Bargnani (1-2, FGA/50.0%; 1 Rb), Anthony Parker (1 Ast), Jamario Moon (1-1, FGA/100.0%) & Chris Bosh (0-1, FGA/00.0%; 3-4, FTA/75.0%) 

Vital Components:
– Toronto scored on 4 consecutive possessions (4-4, 100.0%) while allowing the T-Wolves to convert only 1-5 possessions (20.0%/1 made 2FGA) during this critical stretch at the end of the 2nd Quarter vs an inferior opponent.

Next Game:
vs Indiana, 22-36 (Fri Feb 29)
