TORONTO RAPTORS LOSE AT CHARLOTTE BOBCATS
Tue, 22 Feb 2011 04:02 PM EST

Toronto Raptors confirmed their dismal away form as they lost against the Charlotte Bobcats. The All-Star break provided some much needed rest for most of the Charlotte players, but especially for D.J. Augustin. Augustin has seen his form improve greatly since Paul Silas took charge of the team, but the wear and tear of the game brought him down a bit. He looked great on the field and managed 23 points, 1 rebound and 8 assists. Basketball odds.

“He’s human. This is his first time playing a lot of minutes and being a starting point guard,” Stephen Jackson stated. “His body is going to take a little beating. It has, but I think he’s bounced back and I think the break definitely helped him.” Jackson had an injury scare in the second half, but it seems it was nothing to it and he will feature in Charlotte’s next game.

The first quarter started with the Bobcats in control. They took advantage of Toronto’s weak defense and managed to score 33 points. The score was 27-33 and it looked like business as usual for the Bobcats. The second quarter was equally good for them. They never looked like backing down and managed to severely outscore the Raptors. It was 44-61 and the Bobcats were feeling great after an amazing first half. Basketball spreads.

The Raptors gave away 43 free throws and apparently that is what lost the game for them. The Bobcats knew what to do and they simply took charge of the game.

“You can’t go into a fist fight slapping, and that’s what we were doing,” Triano stated. “We didn’t play very smart on the defensive end. Gerald Wallace has 20 points and he only takes six shots.”

The third quarter looked just as good for the Bobcats as they ran their opponents down and outscored them every step of the way. The Raptors looked incapable of fighting back and the score was set at 69-89. “Really, it was men against boys,” coach Triano stated.

The Bobcats turned it down a notch in the fourth quarter and allowed the Bobcats to get closer. However, it was nowhere near enough for them to surmount an astounding comeback.

“It was just a satisfying win. You don’t get too many games like that from us,” Silas stated. “For us to sustain that throughout the game was just really exciting.” Basketball lines.

The final score was set at 101-114 and the Bobcats got another satisfying win.
