Raptors Get Bench-Slapped

Four of the Raptors’ starting five had 20 points or more today. Ed Davis and Amir Johnson were fearsome up front, with 42 points and 26 rebounds between them. Unfortunately, the second unit was…disappointing. In short, the bench could have played better.

No, seriously. I mean the actual physical bench would probably have been more effective than the players who came off it to support the starters.

Toronto’s bench was outscored by an astonishing 43-7. They managed 6 rebounds, and turned the ball over 8 times. An early 20-point lead turned into an 11-point loss to the team some people think Toronto may end up battling for the 8th playoff spot in the East.

You’re welcome, Milwaukee.
