The third and fourth quarters the Raptors played yesterday could not have been more different from each other. In the third quarter of a 109-101 loss to the Utah Jazz, the Raptors scored 39 points - equalling their most productive quarter of the season - and shot 68 per cent from the floor. In the fourth quarter, they scored just 14 points - tying their season low for a fourth quarter - and shot just 32 per cent from the field. In the fourth, they had nearly as many turnovers (5) as they did baskets (6).

When Andrea Bargnani hit the 20-point plateau in yesterday's Raptor loss, it was the sixth time in seven games. In his last three games, he is shooting 58 per cent from the field, has made eight of 10 three-pointers and has averaged 27.7 points. Toronto has also lost all three.
