DeMar DeRozan clawed his way to 24 points vs. Houston on Wednesday, finishing 8-of-19 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line while tying his season high with two 3-pointers.

DeRozan added nine assists, five rebounds and two steals, and his offensive output was impressive after an ice-cold start and special attention from Trevor Ariza, who was draped all over him defensively. He should fare even better vs. the Bucks on Friday -- Milwaukee has been the second-best matchup for opposing SGs this season, behind only the Lakers.

DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points with seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and one turnover on Monday vs. the Clippers.

As expected, DeRozan bounced back after scoring a season-low 12 points vs. the Kings on Sunday. He shot 11-of-21 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, but he failed to hit a 3-pointer for the third straight game. The Raptors will travel to Houston to face the Rockets on Wednesday.

DeMar DeRozan had easily his lowest-scoring game of the season on Sunday, hitting 3-of-15 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs to finish with 12 points, nine boards, four assists and three turnovers.

DeRozan came in averaging 33.0 points per game with a 51.4 effective FG percentage, numbers that have only been kept up season-long by five players in NBA history -- Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bob McAdoo, George Gervin and Michael Jordan. It was inevitable that his efficiency would dip as the season progresses, but he finished as a top-40 option last season so it's not quite necessary to sell high.
Nov 21 - 12:50 AM

DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points during a 113-111 win over the Nuggets on Friday, adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Another day, another game with 30 points. DeRozan has scored at least 30 in 10 of his 12 games this year and he leads the NBA in scoring with 33.0 points per game. It seems unsustainable because faced tight defense on a whopping 72.2 percent of his shots in his first 11 games -- only wide open 3.4 percent of the time, too.
Nov 19 - 2:30 AM

DeMar DeRozan was a perfect 17-of-17 at the FT line on Wednesday, finishing a tough loss to Golden State with 34 points, six rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Raptors have lost two straight games for the first time this season, albeit both were against last year's NBA Finals contenders. DeRozan continues to be a scoring machine and his supporting stats have picked up lately, helping to anchor him as a second-round fantasy value. DeRozan is treating NBA fans to a truly remarkable early-season scoring display.
Nov 17 - 12:34 AM

DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points with six rebounds, four assists, three steals and two treys vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

He was just 10-of-27 from the field, but he had to slow down at some point after shooting 52.8 percent in his previous nine games. "He's playing at an All-Star level," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "Getting bumped, getting hit, still finishing the play. He's playing an old man's game with physicality. The game has slowed down for him and the key is he's converting those plays."

DeMar DeRozan credits his terrific start this season to his intense dedication over the summer.

"I didn’t get to enjoy the summer," DeRozan said. "Socially, fun-wise and all that it was really one of them summers where it was just a sickening dedication." This season DeRozan became the first player since Michael Jordan (and just the fourth NBA player in the last 50 years) to score 30-plus points eight times in his team’s first nine games of a season. He’s also averaging 4.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors to a 118-107 win over the Knicks on Saturday, scoring 33 points to go with seven boards, four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

He even added a 3-pointer to his stat line for good measure. Not only is DeRozan leading the league in scoring with 34.1 points a night, he’s also contributing across the board with 4.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game. His usage rate has also spiked to 37.5 this season, and when you add all those things up you’ve got a second-round stud in standard 9-cat leagues.
Nov 12 - 10:26 PM

DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors to a 113-111 win over the Hornets, scoring 34 points on 14-of-26 shooting in 36 minutes.

He added three rebounds, three assists and two steals while hitting 6-of-7 from the line. DeRozan is on a tear to start the season and now has scored 30+ points in seven out of eight games. The last player to do that was Michael Jordan in the 1986-87 season. He's not slowing down.
Nov 11 - 9:47 PM

DeMar DeRozan had another scintillating scoring performance on Wednesday with a game-high 37 points, six assists, four rebounds and three steals, making 13-of-22 FGs and 11-of-15 FTs.

The supporting stats were a nice sight and this is the fifth time in six games that DeRozan has scored 32+ points. His offensive theatrics are even more impressive when you consider that he's made just two 3-pointers all season -- in addition to a barrage of jumpers, he's getting it done at the FT line with an average 8.4 makes per game.
Nov 9 - 11:11 PM

DeMar DeRozan made 7-of-20 field goals and 8-of-10 free throws to finish Sunday's home loss with 23 points, four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover.

DeRozan had scored at least 30 points in five straight games to begin the season, tying a record set by Michael Jordan in 1986, but he couldn't find the range tonight. The league's leading scorer still got plenty of touches, and as usual he found his way to the line with frequency, so we're expecting a bounce-back performance vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.
Nov 6 - 9:47 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 34 points in a 96-87 win over the Heat on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists and four turnovers.

He's your leading scorer in the NBA and even dropped his season average to 35.8 per game. DeRozan is the first player since Michael Jordan in 1986 to score at least 30 points in the first five games of the season. More impressively, he's made just one 3-pointer while he's going to the line nine times per night. He's as locked in as a scorer as it gets.
Nov 4 - 10:48 PM

DeMar DeRozan dropped 40 points during Wednesday's road win in D.C., going 14-of-23 from the field and 11-of-16 from the line with five boards, five assists and two steals.

DeRozan had his ankles re-taped in the first half but he soon returned and looked fine, putting his owners' minds at ease. He's averaging 36.3 points through four games and currently ranks third in the league in usage (37.9 percent), trailing only Russell Westbrook and Joel Embiid. Not a bad return from a guy who fell outside the early rounds in most drafts.
Nov 2 - 9:48 PM

DeMar DeRozan had his ankles re-taped in the first half on Wednesday and will return.

It doesn't sound serious and he wasn't limping too badly as he went to the locker room. If he's limited, we'll see more of Norman Powell and Terrence Ross.
