DeMar DeRozan    G/F  Raptors

 

 

DeMar DeRozan scored 31 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Nets on Friday. Don't look now, but the Raptors are rolling with their +8.2 net rating crushing Boston's +4.7 for the best in the Eastern Conference on the year -- it's +11.3 over the last 15, too. The Raptors, Rockets and Warriors are all top eight for both offensive and defensive rating this season, and the Raptors have won eight of their last nine. DeRozan is also really heating up again with back-to-back 30-plus scoring games for the first time this season, but of course he did go against the Suns and Nets.

DeRozan scored 31 points (14-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding three rebounds, two steals and an assist in 29 minutes during Friday's 120-87 win over the Nets. He had 20 points at the half and got the entire fourth quarter off, otherwise DeRozan likely would have had a shot at tying or topping his season high of 37. He's now scored 30 or more in two straight games and three of his last eight, averaging 26.5 points, 5.9 assists, 5.1 boards and 1.3 steals per game over that span.

DeMar DeRozan matched his season-high 37 points during a 115-109 win over the Suns on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 37 minutes. The Raptors are playing some good ball these days with seven wins in their last eight, and it's all about their offense. In their last eight games, their starters have played the second most minutes together among all NBA combos (Wolves starters) and their 123.2 offensive rating in those 133 minutes ranks first in the NBA among the 26 combos with at least 48 minutes. As for DeRozan, he's been awesome in the pick-and-roll this year and he's on pace for his best field goal percentage since 2009-10.

DeRozan poured in 17 points (5-13 FG, 7-10 FT) and added eight assists, five rebounds and two steals across 36 minutes in Monday's 96-91 loss to the Clippers. DeRozan took a rare back seat to Jonas Valanciunas on the offensive end, failing to score at least 20 points for the first time in six games. The nine-year veteran is boasting his best shooting percentage (47.7) since his rookie 2009-10 campaign, so Monday's relatively modest offensive effort was a departure from the norm. On a more positive note, DeRozan's excellent work as a facilitator continued, as he handed out at least eight assists for the third time in the last four contests, pushing season average to a career-best 5.2.

DeMar DeRozan dished out a season-high nine assists during the Raptors' sixth straight win on Sunday, adding 25 points and three rebounds in 35 minutes. DeRozan went 7-of-11 from the line tonight, but otherwise he was very efficient with 9-of-15 field goals and just one turnover. He's rolling over the past five games with averages of 25.4 points, 5.2 boards, 6.8 dimes and 1.2 steals, and has surged into top-30 value in that span. DeRozan is also shooting 47.4% from the field this season, highest since he was a rookie, and his 0.7 triples are the second-highest mark of his career. There's no reason to think he'll slow down.

DeRozan finished with 27 points (6-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 14-14 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 116-107 victory over Memphis. DeRozan led his team in scoring again, posting another 27 points. He has been extremely consistent this season, converting at almost 48 percent from the floor. He has seen his assist numbers go up slightly from last season, as well as his steals. He flies under the radar in fantasy formats, as he is not as flashy as some of the other elite shooting guards. With his team almost guaranteed to be playing for a top-four position in the East, he is going to playing big minutes all season, barring an injury.

DeMar DeRozan posted a team-high 26 points with seven rebounds, six assists and a steal across 36 minutes in Friday's 116-107 win at Memphis. DeRo made frequent trips to the charity stripe, hitting 14-of-14. Perhaps the only thing fantasy owners could complain about is that he was 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point line and he turned it over four times. No one is complaining about his fourth straight game with 20 or more points after he struggled in the final week of November.

DeRozan scored 20 points (7-17 FG, 0-1 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, eight assists and three steals over 34 minutes in Tuesday's 126-113 win over Phoenix. DeRozan continued to add to his team-leading 23.2 point average with another 20 point performance on Tuesday. The Toronto guard collected his third consecutive game at or above the 20 point mark. For the season, DeRozan has not gone more than three games without scoring at least 20 points. As the season hits the one quarter mark, this level of consistency solidifies DeRozan's status as an elite scorer thus far. DeRozan will look to continue his current scoring streak when Phoenix visits Memphis on Friday.

DeRozan scored 26 points (9-21 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-10 FT) while adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 34 minutes during Friday's 120-115 win over the Pacers. After a three-game mini-slump in which DeRozan scored only 33 points, he's bounced back with 56 over his last two contests. The 28-year-old also saw double-digit free-throw attempts for the first time since Nov. 14, snapping a streak of seven games in which he wasn't drawing his usual volume of foul calls.

DeMar DeRozan finished with 26 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 34 minutes in Friday's win against the Pacers. DeRozan has bounced back nicely after leaving last Saturday's game at Atlanta due to a knee ailment. He is averaging 28.0 points, 5.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds over his past two outings since returning to the lineup. After some offensive struggles prior to his injury, it appears order has been restored and the buy-low window for fantasy owners has slammed shut.

@KrisReports DeMar DeRozan and fat Kyle Lowry never really gave them a reason to. It can’t all be regular season.
