Raptors Rapid Recap - Charlotte 103 Toronto 107

- It feels like forever since the Raps were in a really exciting game, but that's exactly what it was tonight. The Raps, in a battle with the Bobcats pulled out a big win at home and have now won 5 games in a row putting them oh so close to the .500 mark. It was probably the most fun game of the year to watch.

- Full credit to the boys in the front court, Chris Bosh and Andrea Bargnani who combined for 61 points and were clutch down the stretch. Bosh was his normal stellar self with another double-double and getting to the line 11 times. The only thing perhaps more impressive than Bosh's play was the post play shown by Bargnani. Bargnani had the full offensive game on display and it was pretty.

- What can't be forgotten here is the solid play the Raps got off the bench. Amir Johnson, Sonny Weems and Marco Belinelli were all key in tonight's win, in particular Marco who in the second half was active defensively and aggresive on the offensive end (sometimes a little too aggresive).

- The Raps got a lot of help from the Bobcats early who were shooting the ball extremely well but turning the ball over time and time again. The Cats had 22 turnovers which allowed the Raps to stay in the game despite some shoddy defense.

- Hedo Turkoglu left the game at half with a knee contusion. Hopefully this is not anything too serious and he is ready for the next few games. The Raps are now riding a mave of momentum and need all hands on deck as they face Boston, San Antonio and Orlando in the next three.

- All in all a great win!
