The hole story
Chris Bosh spent seven years in Toronto before leaving to join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in Miami this summer. Bosh left the Raptors as their career leader in points (10,275), rebounds (4,776), blocks (600), and minutes (18,815).
Reggie Evans, the eight-year veteran out of Iowa, is the designated shoe-filler.
Triano didn’t sugar coat the impact of losing Bosh. “It’s tough when you lose that many points and that many rebounds and a guy that was the focal point of the offense,’’ he said. “I think what it’s done is it’s opened up the floor offensively for other guys to step up and for us to be a more balanced team.’’ The Raptors were outrebounded, 41-35, last night. Evans pulled down a team-high-tying six rebounds but was otherwise overmatched by Kevin Garnett (9 points, 6 rebounds in 23 minutes)
