Toronto Raptors Lose Fourth Straight to Los Angeles Simon Beeksma Their leading scorer was out with

a sore ankle. Their second-leading scorer didn’t make a field goal until the fourth quarter. On Saturday March, 26, 2011 the Toronto Raptors and the Los Angeles Clippers played against each other at the staples center. The result of the game was a 9490 loss for the Toronto Raptors. Although Toronto had a 10 point lead with about 8 minutes left in the fourth quarter, L.A. came out with a defensive change from man to zone. This lead to multiple misses by Toronto and multiple makes for L.A. In some ways, the Raptors found themselves leading the L.A. Clippers by 10 points with a little more than eight minutes left in Saturday’s game amounted to an unlikely scenario. It also led to a predictable conclusion. As the Raptors struggled desperately to score down the stretch against a pesky zone defence, the Clippers mounted a late comeback to pull out a 94-90 win and hand the visitors their fourth straight loss. Still, on a night when Toronto’s Andrea Bargnani and his team-leading 21.8 points per game were sitting on the bench nursing the irksome bone spurs in his right ankle, the Raptors struggled to find reliable sources of scoring.
