While Coach Dunlap’s rotation has been marred by inconsistency this season, the Bobcats have consistently lost, regardless of whomever has been out on the court. Both trends continued last night as the Bobcats lost on the road to the Toronto Raptors 92-78. Dunlap’s small lineups against the Raptors worked effectively throughout the first three quarters, but the strategy backfired on both ends of the floor in the fourth, when the Bobcats were outscored 23-10.   Bismack Biyombo played 23 minutes; Byron Mullens played eight minutes; Jeff Adrien played one minute; and Tyrus Thomas and Brendan Haywood were inactive   Trailing by one heading into the fourth quarter, any hope for a two-game win streak was quickly slashed. Dunlap’s small lineups could not stop the Raptors from infiltrating the paint on offensive; the Cats also struggled to get open looks on offense. On many possessions, they hoisted contested, desperation shots with the shot clock expiring.   Raptors Power
