Toronto Raptors: Less Is More For CB4

November 7th, 2009 by Geoff Zochodne Leave a reply »
Last night in New Orleans, the Toronto Raptors displayed a depth that's been missing from the team for years.

It was refreshing to watch as the Raps slowly ground the Hornets into dust, and then as they definitively blew them away in the second half.

And how did they do it?

Because these Raptors are deep.

Not write-you-a-poem-because-they're-so-sensitive-deep, but the kind of deep where Chris Bosh spending 45 minutes hucking J's no longer constitutes their offense.

(Although I do love poetry.)

Bosh played only 30 minutes last night, but was more effective than he's been all season. Is there some kind of correlation between rest and better play? If your answer was anything but, "Duh" I've failed communicating my point.

Let's look at CB4's season:

@New Orleans: 30 minutes, 9-9 FG, 27 points, 7 rebounds 

vs. Detroit: 35 minutes, 5-10 FG, 25 points, 8 rebounds

vs. Orlando: 40 minutes, 10-20 FG, 35 points, 16 rebounds

@ Memphis: 38 minutes, 13-25 FG, 37 points, 12 rebounds

vs. Cleveland: 40 minutes, 6-17 FG, 21 points, 16 rebounds
