“We ran it earlier in the game and it worked,” Triano said. “He has to drive to create the other options. Even if he drives on that play, we know where the help is coming from and that’s the pass. Jose (Calderon) was right there in the corner, wide open.”
We had a chance to win it right at the end but Triano made the same mistake he made in Phoenix – clearing out for Turkoglu in a set with no movement. Just like Phoenix, the result was a massive brick which burst our bubble and ruined an otherwise acceptable performance (at least offensively).
Thursday night at a Raptors season ticket holder meet and greet at the Air Canada Centre, Tom Liston and Phdsteve had a chance to talk with Raptors brass Richard Peddie, Bryan Colangelo, and head coach Jay Triano. During their conversations, some things were revealed.
“When you have Chris Bosh in the lineup, a lot of times you give it to him and he either creates or holds the ball and makes a play,” Raptors head coach Jay Triano said. “Right now, we’re having to make more passes each possession down the floor to find ways to score. When you do that, there’s a better chance that guys turn it over.”
“I don’t know why he was subbed out,” Roy said. “He was killing us. We didn’t have an answer for him. Coach even came to the sideline and he got upset with us because he was pretty much getting what he wanted. They did us a favor when they subbed him out.”
