INDIANAPOLIS -- Jay Triano understands Hedo Turkoglu's frustration.

Turkoglu, following a loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday, opined that he is not handling the ball as much as he would like to be with the Raptors after signing a monster contract last summer.

"I would like to see him have the ball a little bit more too," Triano, the Raptors coach, said. "We have to find a way to get him involved a little bit more maybe.

"I look at the fact we are one of the top scoring teams in the NBA," Triano said.

"Is it too early in the season to panic? Absolutely. Turk makes great plays. On (Sunday), he did not have a great game offensively and he still had nine assists. He took nine shots. That's 18 times he had the ball. "Does he want it more? Yes. Does everybody? Yes."
