The Benching Of DeMar DeRozan Feels Like A Point Of No Return For The Raptors The Benching Of DeMar DeRozan Feels Like A Point Of No Return For The Raptors

That the Cavs won Game 3, at home, on another act of eye-popping heroism from LeBron James, should surprise exactly no one. The Cavs were the favorites, they won both games in Toronto, they have the best player in the world, and the Raptors are cursed. But that doesn’t mean the game wasn’t without genuine surprises,…

DeMar DeRozan Got It Done For The Raptors DeMar DeRozan Got It Done For The Raptors

For a few glorious moments, this DeMar DeRozan dunk looked like it was going to be the game-winner in tonight’s Raptors-Pistons game. It would’ve been perfect—explosive and dramatic and from a guy who was on fire, with DeRozan on his way to 42 points and six assists:

Here is a fantastic profile of L.A.’s own DeMar DeRozan, shortly before he plays an All-Star Game in his Southern California for the first time.

Oh Shit, DeMar DeRozan Might Be Able To Shoot Threes Now

Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan has always been able to score—he’s averaged more than 20 points a night in each of the past four seasons, with his 2016-17 points per game average of 27.3 putting him fifth among all NBA players. One way he was never able to do it, however, was from long range. Since his career began in…

DeMar DeRozan Throws Ball At Referee During Pro-Am Game

Raptors star DeMar DeRozan lost his cool at the end of a Drew League pro-am game, chucking the ball at the referee before leaving the court.

Raptors Finally Defeat Bulls, Ending One Of The NBA's Weirdest Streaks Raptors Finally Defeat Bulls, Ending One Of The NBA's Weirdest Streaks

After overcoming a 16-point lead, four threes from career 30 percent three-point shooter Rajon Rondo, and 37 points from Jimmy Butler, the Toronto Raptors beat the Chicago Bulls tonight. It took them 122 points and five minutes of overtime to do so, but for the first time in 12 matchups, the Raptors won.

DeMar DeRozan Takes All The Hard, Bad Shots And It Is Glorious DeMar DeRozan Takes All The Hard, Bad Shots And It Is Glorious

DeMar DeRozan torched the Celtics for 41 points and 13 rebounds last night, and the Raptors’ leading scorer continues to feast on the scraps nobody else really wants these days: lots of contested midrange jumpers. DeRozan was out there leaning, absorbing contact, going 16-for-29 from the field and 8-for-12 from…

DeMar DeRozan Dunks Physically On Ricky Rubio And Verbally On Kyle Lowry DeMar DeRozan Dunks Physically On Ricky Rubio And Verbally On Kyle Lowry

Last night, DeMar DeRozan somehow materialized above the rim to turn DeMarre Carroll’s missed layup into Ricky Rubio’s funeral: cowering, hands clamped over head, palpable fear and awe of a more powerful being. As always, it’s nice to watch someone close a sizeable gap and fuck someone’s day up.

DeMar DeRozan Is Off To A Historically Hot Start DeMar DeRozan Is Off To A Historically Hot Start

DeMar DeRozan is an outlier among NBA shooting guards, in that he can’t shoot. The Raptors wing is a career .282 three-point shooter, which is lower than DeMarcus Cousins’s career mark, and he’s shooting even worse this year. Dwyane Wade had a distinguished career without being able to stretch the floor, but he’s an…

Team USA Did Some Cool Dunks Tonight Team USA Did Some Cool Dunks Tonight

The best highlight that the future gold medal-winning basketball dudes of Team USA produced this week was DeMarcus Cousins mocking Draymond Green for broadcasting his dong to the masses. However, they smoked Nigeria by 44 points in a tune-up game tonight, and in the process, dunked the ball a lot.

DeMar DeRozan Almost Pulled Off A 360 Dunk Over A Defender DeMar DeRozan Almost Pulled Off A 360 Dunk Over A Defender

If DeMar DeRozan had managed to stuff this dunk in on this poor Chinese national teamer, it would have been one of the coolest dunks in the history of jams. As it stands, DeRozan finished just shy. The USA bench got a technical foul for their reaction, which seems unfair given that they just nearly witnessed a man do…

The Pacers Beat Toronto In Game 1, Where The Raptors Always Go To Die The Pacers Beat Toronto In Game 1, Where The Raptors Always Go To Die

The Indiana Pacers, the seventh-best team in the NBA’s Eastern Conference during the regular season, just rolled into Toronto and stole Game 1 from the Raptors, the second-best team in the East. They were able to do this because the Toronto Raptors have a streak to keep alive: Having never won a Game 1 in a…

A Brief But Amusing Math Lesson From Kyle Lowry And DeMar DeRozan

The Toronto Raptors played in London last week. During a post-practice media scrum, shooting guard DeMar DeRozan was asked asked about his strong offensive performances in the previous two games he’d played in London. That’s when a hum-drum interview suddenly became very entertaining.

DeMar DeRozan Dunked All Over The Sixers Last Night DeMar DeRozan Dunked All Over The Sixers Last Night

The Raptors went down Pennsylvania way to take on a summer league team that’s somehow still playing into January. It was the fourth game of a mini road trip, but they took care of the anonymous group of Benjamin Franklin fans. Toronto is, for my money, the best of the morass of teams fighting for the second seed in…

DeMar DeRozan's 40-Foot Game-Winner Wiped Out By Timeout  DeMar DeRozan's 40-Foot Game-Winner Wiped Out By Timeout 

A Cory Joseph steal with just a couple of seconds remaining gave DeMar DeRozan the opportunity to nail a nearly half-court shot for a 93-90 win over the Hornets. But as you can hear from the whistle that blows shortly before DeRozan released, the Raptors called a timeout, negating his shot. Coming out of the timeout…

DeMar DeRozan Ends Rudy Gobert's Life With Ferocious Dunk DeMar DeRozan Ends Rudy Gobert's Life With Ferocious Dunk

Man, this is disappointing. I really like Rudy Gobert, and was looking forward to watching him this year. Instead, just nine games into his season, Raptors wing DeMar DeRozan ended his career and life with this dunk. How rude.

Kyle Lowry And DeMar DeRozan: We Are Trash Kyle Lowry And DeMar DeRozan: We Are Trash

The Toronto Raptors have hit a bit of a rough patch this month, and the team's struggles have a lot to do with backcourt duo Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan playing like trash. Their words, not mine!

Earlier today the Toronto Raptors—who surprisingly have the third best record in the NBA—announced that DeMar DeRozan suffered a "torn left adductor longus tendon" with no timetable for return. Injury blog In Street Clothes explains what that is, and how long DeRozan will likely be out for. [In Street Clothes]

The West Is OKC's Until Kevin Durant Says Otherwise The West Is OKC's Until Kevin Durant Says Otherwise

In the four weeks since Russell Westbrook's arthroscopic surgery, the Oklahoma City Thunder has fallen from 23-5 (.821) to 33-10 (.767) — that is, the team has racked up half its losses during just 15 games. Westbrook's major stats this season (21.4 points, 6.0 boards, 7.0 assists, 1.8 steals) all topped his career…
