Raptors show some defensive mettle in win

BY foxsports • November 7, 2009

The Toronto Raptors were hot from 3-point range in the second half against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night. All they wanted to talk about, though, was their blue-collar defense.

After giving up 115 points to Memphis and 125 to Orlando in recent losses, the Raptors held the Hornets to 14 points in the third quarter in a 107-90 victory.
