The Mo work the better

MIKE KOREEN -- Toronto Sun

Morris Peterson has made up for his missed second half against the New Jersey Nets Sunday by playing all but three minutes of the past two games.

The Raptors swingman played all 48 minutes in a 111-104 loss against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

He then played 45 minutes in a 95-86 win over the Charlotte Bobcats last night at the Air Canada Centre, but he claims he is not fatigued.

"Am I tired? No," Peterson said.

"Me and tired, that's just like water and oil. They don't mix."

With his team sluggish most of the night against Charlotte, Raptors coach Sam Mitchell gave his key players heavy minutes.

Mike James played 42 minutes and Chris Bosh was on the court for 37.

EYEING DENHAM

The Raptors and many other NBA teams will be keeping tabs on Toronto's Denham Brown this season and so far, the reviews are no better than mixed.

The Connecticut Huskies senior forward, who could be in the second-round mix in this year's NBA draft, is shooting a career-low 33.9% from the field in 14 games this season.

The one-time Bathurst Heights star is averaging 10.2 points a game, just down from his career high of 10.4 last season.

The Huskies are 13-1.

BRIEFLY

Mitchell and forwards Bosh, Charlie Villanueva and Joey Graham will meet with students from Parkdale Collegiate today at Varsity Cinema as part of the Read to Achieve program ... Graham's twin brother, Stephen, cut by the Houston Rockets last month, worked out for the Cleveland Cavaliers recently ... The Raptors may be last in the Atlantic Division, but Raptors centre/forward Pape Sow is at the opposite end of the spectrum in the D-League. Sow's Arkansas RimRockers (10-6) are tied for first in the eight-team league with the Fort Worth Flyers ... Mark McKoy, a Canadian gold-medal winner in the 110-metre hurdles at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona and legendary jockey Sandy Hawley both attended the game at the ACC last night.
