"It will always be unusual", DeRozan said. Powell, who'd been out with a shoulder injury, finished with 20 points. Any part of the historic feat?
"The moment you want", Damn it, "said DeRozan". He played big pieces on the track.
"Just figuring it out", DeRozan said as an explanation. I told myself - once I saw him down there - that I was going to go to the basket and be aggressive. And I'm just a fan of basketball.
"I think we've got to be careful with guys that haven't played in - what - a dozen games?" But with a few days off before heading to Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder, Nick Nurse and Co. have plenty of time to review the film and fine-tune the little things to get back on track. DeRozan was also given a technical foul on the play for staring at Boucher. He joked that it bothers him a bit. "But it's cool to be recognized like that here, because I remember when I was on the other side and I appreciated any word any veteran gave to me".
"I'm pretty sure it means a lot to him to come back here and win", said Spurs Center Jakob Poeltl, DeRozan's teammate in Toronto and San Antonio. Lowry said the two would go for dinner when the Spurs arrived in town Saturday night.
"Naw, Kyle's been great", he said". "It looks like the older he gets, the better he gets, and that's great to see". "And knowing he's getting older and older and still doing it at a high level is definitely incredible".
Spurs: Playing in Toronto as a visitor for only the second time, DeRozan received loud applause when he was introduced before the game.
Josh Richardson of the Philadelphia 76ers and DeMar DeRozan of the San Antonio Spurs were named the NBA Players of the Week for week 12. Leonard drained two free throws in the dying seconds while the Toronto crowd chanted "M-V-P!"
DeRozan put the ball in his right hand and pulled it back as Raptors defender Chris Boucher jumped at the same time, attempting to block the shot.
When we talk about Lowry, DeRozan's face really lights up.
