Portland Trail Blazers' Brandon Roy might not be so quick to insult the Raptors next time around.

Roy, who was held to just 3-for-13 shooting by the Celtics in a loss at Boston on Friday, let some of that frustration out as he looked ahead to yesterday's game.

"Half of those moves I did tonight,'' Roy said after the game in Boston. "They are going to work against Toronto.''

Granted the Toronto defence isn't in the same ball park as Boston's at this point, but the words struck a nerve with a few Raptors.

"It was brought to my attention before the game and it certainly served as some extra motivation," said Raptors shooting guard Anthony Parker, who drew the defensive assignment on Roy for most of the afternoon.

Parker, with an assist to Joey Graham, held Roy to 15 points on 6-for-16 shooting, well shy of his seasonal average of 20.7.

"A guy like that is going to get his points he has the ball so much, but we made it tough on him," Parker said.
