    Last Meeting

    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


    Noteworthy
    • 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.

    • DeMar DeRozan has made 13 of his 26 three-pointers this season in the month of January. DeRozan is shooting a career best .321 (26-for-81) from beyond the arc, including .448 (13-for-29) during 11 games in January.

    • Lowry scored 20+ points for the 25th time; something he did 29 times in 70 games last season.

    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.

      We practically tied GS for all intents and purposes, and beat San Antonio.

      With that said, I hope the team hasn't been feeling themselves too much the last couple days, and still handle business tonight.

            Yup. Weird to lose this one (franchise win tie), to this team (struggling and on a back-to-back) at this time (last before the All Star reserves are announced).

            I've never done this (he says, nervously) ... but you have to expect a win here, don't you ... for Casey, if nothing else?

              Honestly, I think teams are beginning to game plan for him now. I'm concerned.

              I hope he doesn't over exert himself and is able to make it through the playoffs.

                A win puts us at 30-15 at that elusive "twice as many wins as losses" which I and Phil Jackson (and Im sure a few others ) Believe is the benchmark for an elite team

                              I'm fine with casey doing what he's doing. But though I've wanted to see Delon hit the court for (well, seems like forever), I was still surprised by how excited I was to see the - what - 1:32 vs. the Clippers.

                              Awesome!
