Chris Bosh Calls out Toronto Raptors

After watching his Raptors’ late-game failure to execute, Bosh challenged his teammates to step up in crunch time.

Bosh, for one, is perplexed as to why players begin games with a focus and purpose, but somehow lose those edges when things get tough, as they did in yesterday’s 109-100 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

"We just have to play basketball down the stretch because we don’t worry about it in the first two quarters, so why worry about in the fourth,” Bosh said. [Toronto Sun]
