Raptors win in New Jersey

A bit surprising for some, but Raptors managed to take sown the Jets, in New Jersey , 94 to 73.

Demar  Derozan  DeRozan scored 19 of his 27 points in the second half, leading the Toronto Raptors to a 94-73 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Sunday night.

With injuries playing a role in their 7-14 start, the Raptors received a huge lift from DeRozan. He made eight of 12 shots, and 11 of 16 free throws.

“The key was patience. I watched a lot of film and I didn’t want to force a lot of things. Lately we get kind of slow coming out in the third quarter, so I tried to be aggressive and get things going.”

Bayless finished with 17 points, and the 6-foot-3 guard added six rebounds and six assists. He also spent his 34 minutes playing defense on Deron Williams.  The Raptors put together a 12-1 run midway in the second quarter, going from two points down to nine up at 40-31. They took a 44-39 lead into the half. Bayless led the stretch, driving for one basket and making three of four free throws.

Williams came in averaging 19.4 points, scored 24. But he had to work for them. He made only eight of 20 shots and just three of 10 from outside the arc.

DeMar may be trying to find his way in a new system, at both ends of the floor. And it’s going to be very telling to see how he responds in the final three-quarters of the season. There can be no doubt that Dwane considers Andrea the team’s offensive focal point, it’s going to be up to DeRozan to adapt and thrive.
