Video: DeMar DeRozan Scores Team-High 20 Points After 21-Game Absence

DeMar DeRozan

If DeMar DeRozan had any rust in his game after being sidelined from action since Nov. 28, he certainly didn’t show it during his return to the court on Wednesday night. After missing only a combined 11 games in his previous five seasons, the All-Star guard was out for the previous 21 games due to a torn tendon in his left groin. During his injury leave, the Raptors went 12-9 and held onto their Atlantic Division. Read More »

DeMar DeRozan, Hollis Thompson

DeMar DeRozan and backcourt mate Kyle Lowry only needed to play about half the game during Toronto’s 120-88 shellacking of Philly on Sunday. We’ll probably be able to say that about a lot of NBA starters after they take on the tanking Sam Hinkie albatross (that makes owner Josh Harris the Ancient Mariner, though we’re not sure he can Rime). DeRozan was efficient in his 25 minutes, though, scoring 24 points on 8-for-12 shooting (8/8 from the stripe) including an unbelievable 360-degree layup on Henry Sims. Read More »

Though Team USA took down upstart Serbia in the gold medal game yesterday and officially ended the tournament in the process, the FIBA experience was far from over for fans. Read More »
