Last Meeting
GAME 80 - APRIL 10, 2016 TORONTO 93, NEW YORK 89
DeMar DeRozan converted a tiebreaking three-point play with 1:05 left on a night he became Toronto's No. 2 career scorer, and the Raptors beat the New York Knicks 93-89. DeRozan finished with 27 points as the Raptors pulled within two games of Cleveland for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Kyle Lowry scored 15 points and Jonas Valanciunas had 14 for the Raptors, who set a franchise record with their 23rd road victory. The Knicks raced to a 21-10 lead, but Toronto recovered to take a 54-51 edge into halftime, then built its own double-digit advantage that the Knicks wiped away in the fourth quarter ... DeRozan drove baseline to beat two defenders and make a layup while being fouled, giving Toronto an 89-86 lead
