A few notes from Triano’s interview:

  • Chris Bosh will make the trip to Minnesota, and should play. Triano plans to limit his minutes, but says Bosh is excited to get going. The coaching staff asked if he’d like to sit out one more game, but Bosh declined.
  • Triano was much happier with Toronto’s defensive play on Wednesday. He also talked about careless fouls and trying to avoid bailing out the opposition.
  • Hedo Turkoglu won’t make the trip but he’s participating in 5-0 drills and is getting closer to action.
  • Triano was asked about Amir Johnson and said he’s pleased with Amir. He likes the energy Johnson brings to the floor, and wants to give him extended minutes throughout the pre-season.
  • When asked about integrating Bosh and Hedo, Triano said it could be interesting to see how Toronto’s ball-moving offense is affected. Hedo and Bosh both like to hold the ball and we’ll have to wait and see how they fit in.
