Raptors at Knicks Points Per Game:

- March 20th, 2012

Not a good enough effort and a Jerryd Bayless injury (hip pointer) = a bad night for the Raptors.

- New York simply played harder, made more of an effort to corral rebounds and get to 50/50 balls. Raptors were crushed 46-30 on the boards.

- Going back to Jose Calderon as the starter was a gamble considering how well Jerryd Bayless was playing but they weren’t going to bench a player because he got injured. Predictably, Bayless wasn’t the same guy coming off of the bench.

- No word yet on the extent of his injury.

- 2-13 shooting from three isn’t going to cut it on most nights. Neither will 15 assists against 17 turnovers.

- New York is a high turnover team, yet committed only 12 against the Raptors, another sign that Toronto defence wasn’t up to snuff.

- No excuse for fading down the stretch in this one, not after a couple of days off.

- Chicago, one of the best teams in the league, will present another huge challenge on Wednesday, with or without Derrick Rose.
