Chris Bosh says it’s way too early to consider this a corner turned for the Toronto Raptors. Ask him perhaps a few games from now.
With Anthony Parker leading the way with a season-high 26 points, the undermanned Raptors recorded their second straight victory over a formidable foe, beating the Orlando Magic 108-102 yesterday, the first time Toronto has won two in a row at home since late November.
“I’m greedy, man,” Bosh said, when asked if the team has turned a corner. “I want to win all the games. We’ve been at two wins in a row, we’ve been at three wins in a row, we have to build on something and make sure we stay consistent, and I think maybe a couple of days from now I’ll be able to answer that question.”
Bosh finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds, while Andrea Bargnani had 18 points. Roko Ukic had 12 points, while Will Solomon pitched in with 11 for the Raptors, who were playing without starters Jose Calderon and Jermaine O’Neal.
Coming off a resounding victory Friday over the Houston Rockets that snapped a four-game losing streak at the Air Canada Centre, the Raptors led by as many as 16 points in the first half yesterday, and looked poised to put together the beginning of a winning streak.
The Raptors are back in action tonight in Milwaukee (8 p.m., Raptors TV, FAN 590).
