College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
In the first game back from the all star break, Toronto Raptor’s forward Chris Bosh went down with an ankle injury and missed the next six games. Over that time his team went 2-4 and are struggling. The Raptors are well rested and back home looking to snap a four game skid as they welcome the New York Knicks to the ACC tonight. The last time the Raps played was back on Tuesday when they were in Houston to take on the Rockets. The Rockets jumped out early and cruised to 116-92 victory. Guard Jose Calderon didn’t dress for the game, while Turkoglu injured his knee during the game and sat out the second half. Both Calderon and Turkoglu should be joining Bosh back in uniform. Although Bosh’s morning didn’t get off to a great start. He missed this morning’s practice with stomach cramps. This is a big game for Toronto as they only have 23 games left in the season and are in a fight to stay in fifth place in the East. They’re only a half game up on the sixth seeded Milwaukee Bucks, a game up on the Chicago Bulls in seventh and a game and half on the eighth place Miami Heat. The 12th place Knicks are coming off a big 128-104 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. Forward Al Harrington had 26 points in the win and David Lee pulled down 18 boards. New York has gone 2-5 since acquiring Tracy McGrady and Eddie House at the NBA trade deadline. McGrady had 21 and House had 17 in their win over Detroit. The Raptors are looking for a repeat performance of the last time they played the Knicks. Bosh 27 points, pulled down 15 boards and Toronto won 106-104.
