    Awesome thread from the Master. Thanks, man.

    Your points about the bench play are suuuuure encouraging. Watching the Spurs and GS last night - man!, they've got a lot of contributors. Let's hope our bench is just rounding into form.

    [Oh and, uh - boy did we play GS tough, in retrospect, huh??? ]

    DeMar DeRozan scored 21 of his season-high 35 points in the second half of the Raptors' 97-88 victory over the Wizards 97-88 on Friday night.

    DeRozan and his backcourt mate, Kyle Lowry, who had 21 points and a season high-tying 10 rebounds, did most of the damage.

    Lowry watched as DeRozan scored 11 in the third quarter and 10 in the fourth … The Raptors overcame a season-high 23 turnovers, taking control with an 18-4 run that gave them a 69-59 lead with 2:40 to play in thethird quarter

    • The Toronto Raptors continue a seven game home stand (Jan. 18-30) Tuesday night versus the Washington Wizards at Air Canada Centre. The home stand equals the franchise high set last season (Nov. 7-21) and in 2012 (Mar. 21 – Apr. 3) and 1999 (Nov. 30 – Dec. 14). The Raptors will also have another stretch of seven consecutive home games later in the season (Mar. 2-14).

    • With a victory Tuesday versus Washington, the Raptors would tie their longest winning streak in team history.

    • Toronto has won six straight regular-season meetings with the Wizards.

    • Toronto has won 19 straight games when holding opponents under 100 points, the second-longest streak in team history. The Raptors won 27 straight games when holding their opponent below the century mark from March 2009 to March 2010.

    • Toronto shot a season-best .545 (12-for-22) from three-point range during Sunday’s victory over the Clippers. The Raptors have now made 11 or more three-pointers in four consecutive games (Jan. 18-24). Toronto is shooting 49 per cent (49-for-100) from beyond the arc during this stretch.

    • The Raptors are 12-4 this season when they make 10 or more three-pointers in a single game.

    • Toronto’s bench scored a season-best 51 points and shot .576 (19-for-33) from the floor Sunday versus the Clippers.

    • The Raptors had four reserves score in double digits (Terrence Ross - 18, Cory Joseph - 12, Patrick Patterson - 10 and Bismack Biyombo - 10) for the first time since Dec. 12, 2014 vs. Indiana.

    • Over the last six contests (Jan. 9-24) Toronto’s second unit is averaging 36.0 points. During this stretch, the Raptors’ reserves have outscored their counterparts 216-to-167 (+49).

    • Terrence Ross has scored in double figures off the bench in four straight games (Jan. 18-24), averaging 14.3 points. During this stretch, he’s shooting .714 (20-for-28) from the field and .684 (13-for-19) from beyond the arc.
