Raptors’ Patterson Seizing Opportunity

Updated

on

(Raptors Coach) Dwane Casey had been thinking about starting surging forward Patrick Patterson for a while now.

An injury to mainstay Amir Johnson forced the hand of Toronto’s head coach Monday and the switch worked out well for the Raptors, 108-101 winners over New Orleans.

Patterson has been strong since arriving from Sacramento, averaging 9.7 points, five rebounds and 50% shooting from the field (including 45% on three-point attempts) before Monday’s game.

“I started in Houston, so it’s nothing new,” Patterson said of being out for the opening tip.
