Bosh

Celtics (48-29) at Raptors (38-39)

Game time: 7pm, Air Canada Centre. TV – CSN. Radio -
WEEI-AM (850).

Team Leaders

Scoring
Bos: Pierce – 18.1                  Raptors: Chris Bosh -
24.0

Rebounding
Bos: Perkins – 7.6                 
Raptors: Bosh – 10.8

Assists
Bos: Rondo – 9.8                    Raptors: Jose Calderon - 5.1

Who'll go off:  Rajon Rondo. He should thrive against a defensively challenged team like Toronto.

Who needs to be stopped:  Andrea Bargnani. With Chris Bosh out (facial fractures), Bargnani becomes the most potent offensive player for the Raptors. While he's potent from 3, Bargnani is shooting 4-14 3FG over his last 3 games.

The C's will lose if…  they put forth the same defensive effort we saw last night in NY. Even without Bosh, the Raptors can score points and shoot 3s.

Miscellany:  The Raptors have lost 15 of 23 and hold a one game lead over the Bulls for the 8th playoff spot in the East. The Celtics have won 7 straight vs Toronto.

Prediction:  Celtics 109 – Raptors 93
