Toronto Raptors guard/forward DeMar DeRozan posted a career-high 43 points, adding five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes during the 107-97 win against the Boston Celtics on Friday. What It Means: In his 517 minutes on the floor without Kyle Lowry (wrist), DeRozan has a whopping 41.4 usage rate, so he is looking at some massive output while Lowry is on the shelf. Despite the Raptors adding Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker, they are lower-usage players -- another positive for DeRozan. All the situational stars are aligning for DeRozan, and he's capturing the...

Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (right wrist) will not play against the Boston Celtics on Friday night. What It Means: Head coach Dwayne Casey said he doesn't know how long Lowry will be out. Cory Joseph will likely get the start in his place for tonight's matchup with the Celtics. DeMar DeRozan is going to be extremely active on offense for the Raptors. Without accounting for Lowry's absence, our models expect DeRozan to turn in 26.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers versus Boston. Source: Rotoworld.com

DeRozan drops 43 as Raptors down Celtics, 107-97

The Raptors dig themselves out of a huge hole without Kyle Lowry, and beat the Celtics (again). It was the casual way coach Dwane Casey said it. Before the Raptors game against their natural rivals, the Boston Celtics, he was talking up the team’s newest acquisitions Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker. After the squad’s recent slide, the long wait to see them retake the court with their new look only heightened the excitement. Fans across Toronto were turned up. And then Casey dropped it: Kyle Lowry, three time All-Star and the team’s undisputed leader, would sit out against the Celtics...

Celtics blow 17-point lead and lose to revamped Raptors

New Raptors Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker energize a relentless effort by Demar DeRozan that propelled Toronto to 50 points in 11 minutes out of halftime. Toronto erases a massive Celtics lead and brings themselves back into the race for the top of the east. A swarming defensive effort holds Thomas to 20 points. The entire Celtics team took off for Toronto as the trade deadline sun set to calls for and against the team’s stagnancy. The common ground both could agree on, with 23 games remaining, that this one would be massive for Boston with leads of two and four games over Washington and...

Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (right wrist) will not play against the Boston Celtics on Friday night. What It Means: Head coach Dwayne Casey said he doesn't know how long Lowry will be out.

Numbers Game: Get Ready for the Serge Ibaka Experience

With the Raptors managing to acquire one of their dream targets at power forward, just how well will Ibaka fit into the team? So, the Raptors got their man. But what does Serge Ibaka bring to the team? Let’s take a look. First off, what does the team need from a power forward? All indications, based on their success with Patrick Patterson, are that the first and foremost skill that matters on the offensive end is shooting — if the power forward can space the floor, DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas can do real damage inside. Three Point Shooting Can Ibaka shoot? He sure can. On the...
