College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
It’s a good thing the Toronto Raptors had at least a day off before their next game, because Chris Bosh really needed to rest his sore shoulders. On Wednesday night, Bosh and a career high 44 points single-handedly kept the Raptors in their game with the Milwaukee Bucks. Toronto eventually went on to lose the game 113-107 – making it two straight loses. Following the loss the big question had to be where was Bosh’s support? Answer – no where to be found. The four other starters were a combined 13-40 from the floor, shooting an awful 32%. The interior defence was brutal giving up 52 points in the paint. Bosh had a lay up and one with just over two minutes left in the game to bring the Raptors within one, but didn’t see the ball again until there was 20 seconds left in the game and the Bucks had an eight point lead. Oh yeah, Milwaukee’s big man Andrew Bogut had already fouled by then out as well. It normally makes sense to get the ball into the guy with the hot hand, right? The Raps have another shot at the Bucks tonight at the ACC. The good news for Toronto is the Bucks are simply awful away from Milwaukee – their road record is 5-16. One key to tonight is to keep Bogut off the score sheet. When the big Aussie scores 17 or more the Bucks are 18-2.
