Since Bosh was injured in the game after the All-Star break, the Toronto Raptors have struggled, posting a 6-13 mark that includes just one win against a playoff-bound team. The once powerful Raptor offense has all but vanished, and the oft-maligned Raptors defense has been trying to set new lows. The one-time fifth-place Raptors have fallen to eighth and only remain in the playoff hunt thanks to a Chicago 10-game losing streak. But not every game the Raptors have played post All-Star break against contending teams has been discouraging. The Raptors: Beat Atlanta at the ACC 106-105; Lost to Cleveland in overtime 126-188; Lost the LA Lakers on the road 109-107; and Lost to Denver 97-96 on a buzzer beater. The Raptors' fall can be directly traced back to the Chris Bosh injury in the fourth quarter of the game against Memphis: a game the Raptors lost in overtime as Bosh’s effectiveness left him after the injury. And since his return, Bosh and the Raptors have yet to regain their pre-All-Star break success.Begin Slideshow
