DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points in a series-clinching 92-89 win over the Bucks on Thursday, adding four rebounds, three assists, five steals and three turnovers in 40 minutes.
After the Raptors looked to have it locked up with a 25-point lead, they actually blew it and were trailing due to a 20-3 Bucks run. The Raptors put together a 9-0 run after that and were able to ice this game in the final minute. DeRozan went 8-of-9 from the line while the Bucks went just 18-of-28 from the line as a team. Moving on, DeRozan did only score 23.0 points per game against the Cavs in the postseason last year, but he increased that to 29.7 during his three games against them this season. Considering the massive problems on defense for the Cavs, DeRozan could be feasting. Apr 27 - 10:54 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points during an 87-76 Game 4 victory over the Bucks on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and four turnovers in 40 minutes.

It was vintage DeRozan with nine makes at the line while going to work in isolation, being assisted just twice to get to his 33 points today. DeRozan didn't have as much defensive responsibility and perhaps the extra space on offense with the small-ball lineup helped him. Maybe, just maybe DeRozan and the Raptors can stay hot in Game 5 on Monday.
Apr 22 - 8:22 PM

DeMar DeRozan missed all eight attempts from the field and made all eight from the line for eight points in a brutal loss to the Bucks on Thursday, adding two rebounds and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

Yeah, not great. The Raptors managed just 30 points as a team in the first half thanks to having their nine turnovers top their seven field goals. The extra length on the Bucks has been a problem for DeRozan, so he may have to not count on his difficult shot selection. It'll be back to the drawing board for Game 4 on Saturday.
Apr 20 - 10:52 PM

DeMar DeRozan hit 9-of-18 shots for 23 points, seven rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's crucial 106-100 win over the Bucks to tie their series at 1-1.

DeRozan's numbers were a little better in Game 1, but he hit just 7-of-21 shots in that one, so he was clearly more effective tonight. The Raptors' great backcourt has been a little stifled by the Bucks' defensive-minded backcourt and Thursday's Game 3 in Milwaukee should be another great battle.
Apr 18 - 10:02 PM

DeMar DeRozan made 7-of-21 from the field and 13-of-14 from the line for 27 points during a 97-83 loss to the Bucks in Game 1 on Saturday, adding eight rebounds and one assist in 39 minutes.

The second half was a disaster all around for the Raptors. They scored just 32 points in the second half, including DeRozan's 1-of-8 from the field. Coach Dwane Casey obviously wasn't happy with the performance. "Our second half was just abysmal," Casey said after the game. "We didn't play with any pace, any rhythm." The Raptors are somehow now 0-9 in Game 1 of a first-round series.
Apr 15 - 9:34 PM

Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas will start against Bucks for Game 1 on Saturday.

DeRozan didn't exactly play well in the postseason last year, so he'll look to hit the ground running. Additionally, Valanciunas has not been very good lately, but he should be able to feast against Thon Maker down low. Expect to see plenty of P.J. Tucker off the bench.
Apr 15 - 5:08 PM

DeMar DeRozan (illness) and Serge Ibaka (rest) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

DeRozan has not been expected to play all day due to flu-like symptoms. With him out, there should be big minutes going to Norman Powell and P.J. Tucker while maybe even some of the younger guys like Delon Wright. Bruno Caboclo was also recalled, so that's cool.
Apr 12 - 6:41 PM

DeMar DeRozan (illness) did not go through shootaround and he's questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

DeRozan wasn't feeling great during Tuesday's practice, so there's certainly a chance he sits out Toronto's final game of the regular season. If that's the scenario that plays out, Norman Powell would likely slot back into the starting five, and Kyle Lowry would be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. Stay tuned.
Apr 12 - 11:34 AM

DeMar DeRozan scored 35 points with some incredible efficiency during Sunday's 110-97 win over the Knicks, going 11-of-15 from the field and 13-of-15 from the charity stripe in just 29 minutes.

DeRozan also added two rebounds and two turnovers to his stat line, and with Toronto getting the win, they guaranteed that they'll be at least the No. 3 seed out East. DeRozan has been a significant factor in the Raptors putting together yet another 50-win season, hitting career-highs in scoring (27.2) and rebounding (5.3) to go with 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals per contest on 46.4 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-45 value on the year.
Apr 9 - 3:19 PM

DeMar DeRozan dominated in a 96-94 win over the Heat on Friday, scoring 38 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

He passed Vince Carter for most 30-point games in a single Raptors season. DeRozan was grabbing his wrist a little during this game, but he certainly wasn't bashful with 32 attempts from the field. This win puts them 1.5 games behind the Celtics for the No. 2 seed while they lead the Wizards by 0.5 games. DeRozan is probably not going to rest until Wednesday.
Apr 7 - 11:13 PM

DeMar DeRozan had 27 points, three rebounds, two assists and three steals on 9-of-21 shooting in a 108-90 loss to the Pacers.

DeRozan was clearly the star of the Raptors tonight, as Serge Ibaka managed just 10 points and eight boards, DeMarre Carroll had an empty 11 points with three 3-pointers, Jonas Valanciunas had 10 points and 10 boards, and Cory Joseph added 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal, despite shooting 5-of-7 and playing heavy minutes. The Raptors are still fighting for playoff seeding and got caught by the Wizards tonight, so hopefully they keep playing the guys that got them there heavy minutes. That was the case tonight, despite the blowout.

DeMar DeRozan scored 40 points during a 111-100 win over the Pacers on Friday, adding nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He has Vince Carter's single-season franchise record with his 30th 30-point game of the season. The Raptors are playing some terrific defense and their interior presence has helped them add a new wrinkle on both ends. With Kyle Lowry set to make it back in early April, the Raptors could be dangerous in the postseason.
Mar 31 - 10:27 PM

DeMar DeRozan dropped 36 points in a blowout win over the Magic on Monday.

He cooled down on Saturday with 18 points vs. Dallas after a pair of 40-point games, but the Magic had no answer for him tonight. DeRozan shot 13-of-21 from the field and 9-of-14 from the line with three assists, two rebounds and one triple in 36 minutes. Toronto has won six games in a row and are just 0.5 games behind the Wizards for the No. 3 seed in the East, so expect DeRozan to keep eating the rest of the way.
Mar 27 - 11:03 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 40 points during a 101-84 win in Miami on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

He just scored 42 points on Tuesday to make this the first time he's scored 40-plus points in consecutive games in his career. The Raptors have had tremendous success when DeMar drops 40, going 8-0 in those instances. DeRozan did tweak his ankle earlier in the game, but obviously it wasn't affecting him too much. The Raptors are playing solid ball again with a four-game winning streak to put them just 0.5 games behind the third-seeded Wizards.
Mar 23 - 11:20 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 42 points in a 122-120 overtime win over the Bulls on Tuesday.

DeRozan helped the Raptors claw their way back from a 15-point fourth quarter deficit. He shot 17-of-38 from the field, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 43 minutes. He had two 40-point games in his career entering this season, but now he has five this campaign which is a franchise record. DeRozan should eat the rest of the way with Kyle Lowry's (wrist) timetable still up in the air.
