Toronto Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan exploded for 42 points on 17-of-38 shooting, adding 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal and 1 block as the Raptors beat the Chicago Bulls 122-120 in overtime. What It Means: This month has been a little bit quiet by DeRozan's standards, especially considering Kyle Lowry is still out, averaging 22.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 34.1 minutes per game through 11 contests in March. DeRozan finished the win with a team-high 21.3 nERD, per numberFire Live. He ranks second among Raptors players and 25th in the NBA with a 6.4 nERD on...

The Week That Was: Coming For That Number Three Spot

The Week That Was: Coming For That Number Three Spot

Here’s a look at the past seven days for the Raptors. The Raptors had a splendid week, beating the Pacers at home on Sunday, snapping their curse against the Bulls in the most dramatic fashion possible on Tuesday, and then picked up two crucial road wins against Miami and Dallas over the weekend. That’s a five-game winning streak since that players-only meeting after getting blown out by the Oklahoma City Thunder, and an 11-5 mark without Kyle Lowry since the All-Star break (everyone please chill we’re not doing this). Toronto has the tiebreaker over Washington and we are now one...

Raptors look to stay hot against Mavericks: Preview, Start time, and more

The Raptors are riding a 4-game win streak as they continue their pursuit of the 3-seed. After that ass-kicking at the hands of the Oklahoma City and the subsequent team meeting, the Raptors have looked like a completely different, cohesive unit. The turn defensively after the All-Star break has lifted the Raptors all the way into the top 10 in defensive rating, and 4th in the league in net rating. As we all anxiously await the return of Kyle Lowry, the fort is being held up just fine for the time being. The Raptors now take on the Dallas Mavericks on the road — the same Mavericks they...

Raptors-Heat: DeRozan reaches a new level

DeMar DeRozan has never played better. P.J. Tucker has him motivated to make a difference defensively for the first time in his career, and somehow, his offence isn't suffering for it. The Raptors were supposed to crumble without Kyle Lowry, who undisputedly is the club's most important and best player.

Numbers Game: More good times coming?

Things are actually going really well. So let’s think on them some more. Last week, we looked at some positive things around the Raptors in spite of Kyle Lowry’s injury and some ugly losses. Well, a week later, we have one more ugly loss, and still plenty of positive stuff going on. Let’s just dive right in. Look at that Defense That’s the name of the game with a key player like Kyle Lowry out of the lineup. And they’ve been performing very well on that end of late, as the additions of Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker keep paying off. Last week we noted that the team had improved the...

Raptors look to restart vs. the Pistons: Preview, Start Time, and More

After disaster last night, can Toronto bounce back in Detroit? At some point last night the Raptors just decided to give up. We don’t like to admit this, but that’s what happened. The team has been struggling without Kyle Lowry — usually a great motivator — and in the wake of Russell Westbrook’s onslaught on history, they melted like a bucket of ice cream in the hot sun. It sucks because this Raptors team never used to do that. There’s not a lot of time to be despair though. After the Thunder game, the locker room doors stayed closed for longer than usual. The players...
