DEFENCE HURTS RAPTORS
(SUN MEDIA) -- Unlike certain teammates, when Chris Bosh is playing poorly, his body language speaks of determination, not defeat.
To wit, the Raptors all-star forward started last night's game against the Washington Wizards shooting 0-for-6 with one rebound before being substituted out with 3:56 left in the first quarter. As he walked off the court, Bosh slapped his hands together in frustration and yelled (apparently at himself) in disgust.
In the second, Bosh returned to the court and quickly reestablished his presence, picking up five points in the first two minutes and 18 in the quarter.
He finished the game with 22 points and 14 rebounds -- his NBA leading 16th double-double.
However, his team's inability to play solid defence for 48 minutes resulted in 106-102 loss to the Wizards, dropping Toronto to 7-12 on the season, with the next three games in a row on the road.
