It was only six minutes but it’s what Quincy Acy did with those six minutes that counted.

Acy, the last man on a pre-season roster of 17 to get any run came out determined to make a statement Friday night.

Caught in a glut of big men on the Raptors roster, Acy had one of those don’t-forget-about-me performances, basically putting the other four Raptors reserves on his back and bettering the Knicks on the floor to finish the game and assure the Raptors of a win.

Acy’s six minutes Friday turned into 16 on Saturday and while the crazy offensive numbers weren’t there, Acy did fininsh with a respectable five points and four rebounds in just over a quarter of work.

Acy and the bench carried the Raps to a 104-97 win last night in another turnover-filled, not to mention foul-filled match. Toronto turned the ball over 26 times continuing a worrisome trend despite their winning ways.

Casey was asked what Friday’s performance did for him.
