T.J. Ford knows Chris Bosh as well as anyone in Toronto, so just in case the past four games weren't evidence enough, we give you T.J.'s take on his fellow Texan.

"I think he's in a good rhythm," Ford said. "I think his confidence is back and he's back playing the way he feels he's capable of playing. That's what we need from him. We need him to continue to have that swagger and that attitude about himself and be that all-star player that he is."

In the past four games, Bosh has averaged 27.5 points, 12 rebounds in just over 41 minutes a game. In the 10 games prior to that, Bosh was averaging 32 minutes, with 16 points and 6.9 rebounds.

TIME TO MAKE AMENDS

The Raptors 2006/2007 season was a success in large part because of what they did at home. Of their 47 wins last year, 30 of them came on the home court compared to just 11 losses.

So far this year, Toronto has not been so comfortable. The home record sits at 3-4 but the Raps have a very good chance to rectify things in the next few days. Having already won the first of a three-game home stand on Sunday and with two winnable games coming up tomorrow and Friday, against the Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers respectively, there is a very good chance the Raptors could be over .500 at home by the time they head to Washington on Saturday.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SPAIN

The Raptors will host the Grizzlies tomorrow for Spanish Day at the ACC. The Grizzlies' Pau Gasol and Juan Carlos Navarro will be honoured along with the Raps' Jose Calderon and Jorge Garbajosa.
