One of the Raptors biggest weaknesses (yes, even during this streak):  “Defensive rebounding.”

Quote
The Raptors concede an average of 14.1 second-chance points a game, 26th in the 30-team league. It’s a trend Nurse would like to nip in the bud before the post-season rolls around.

“Defensive rebounding hasn’t been as good as we would like it,” the coach said, “and that’s just a combination of making sure we’re blocking out a little better, but then chasing them down and trying to sense where the long (rebounds) will fly to.
