One of the failings of the Raptors this season has been in getting to the free-throw line with regularity. But even when they shoot a lot of free throws they don't have regular success. In their last two games, the Raptors have shot 38 free throws in a win over Indiana and 36 in a loss at Charlotte. They represent the top two games in free throws attempted this season. The Raptors average just over 22 a game, 27th in the 30-team NBA.

The 24 turnovers the Raptors committed in Monday's loss in Charlotte equalled a season high set in a Nov.18 loss in Orlando. And there was no one culprit much worse than another. Anthony Parker, who hadn't committed more than four in any game this season, had six, while Jose Calderon had four and the other three starters - Chris Bosh, Shawn Marion and Andrea Bargnani - had three apiece. Only five of the 24 came from backups.
