You didn't have to look real hard Tuesday morning to see the kind of day Rudy Gay was having.

The Raptors forward was getting pounded on Twitter, on the message boards and on the blogs for his 11-for-37 performance from the field in a double overtime loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday night.

Gay's 29.7% shooting night was not one he will put on the highlight reels, although the clutch three at the end of the first overtime to force a second might make it.

During the same game, Gay went over on his ankle and sprained it, took shots to the jaw on three separate occasions -- "I'm just glad it wasn't Dwight (Howard) or I might not be talking," Gay said following practice in Memphis on Tuesday -- and hurt his knee.

"Honestly I don't even know how I got up this morning, but I did and if it's time to work you have to do it," Gay said. "I came in and got some shots up and (will) try to get this win Wednesday night."
