Toronto Raptors Getting Inside 2008-10-30


Toronto Raptors Getting Inside 2008-10-30
All pre-season, the Raptors have been wondering just how Chris Bosh and Jermaine O'Neal would work together when games count; just about as long as Bosh and O'Neal have been telling anyone who'd listen that they'd be fine once they had some real games together.

"It's going to take some time, things don't happen real quickly, but we're getting better," says Bosh.

The biggest difference the Raptors have to deal with, and exploit, is that they've now got two proven frontcourt players. Not since Antonio Davis and Charles Oakley were together in the early 2000s have they had a tandem capable of dominating a game, both offensively and defensively.

"I want (O'Neal) to have some big games, that's only going to help," said Bosh, who will take care of the offensive load most nights while O'Neal handles the primary defensive assignment.

RAPTORS 95, SIXERS 84: Getting 44 points and 19 rebounds from their frontcourt, the Raptors pulled off an impressive opening game win over the Sixers in Philadelphia.

Chris Bosh had 27 points and 11 rebounds and Toronto held the Sixers to just 35 percent shooting from the field with some suffocating second-half defense.

Toronto limited Philadelphia to just 39 points in the second half and relied on some deadly outside shooting (10-for-16 from downtown) to win a battle of Atlantic Division rivals.
