    I wish that Demar showed up more often. Not that he needs to score 45 points a night, but if he could actually be a consistent 3 point threat it would do wonders for his game. Hell.... 35% would be fine, he doesn't need to be a 40-45% sharpshooter

    I havent looked it up but he doesnt seem to be shooting those 21-23 ft long 2's anymore. He still takes them just outside the paint)15-17 range but he's pretty money from there.Career high near 50% FG, 5 assist a game while keeping the TO's down.

    With looking at their schedule the Raptors should be in 1st in about 2 weeks

    Time for some DeRozan haters (including me) to eat crow.

    The Raps are a joy to watch. Can't believe all this talent. Overflowing.

    This has happened before though. I'd hold off on that crow sandwich until the playoffs.

    He's never been this good. Ts% at .587, that's Dwayne Wade at his best.

    His usage is significantly down and assist totals up so he's doing more in less time holding on to the ball

    Both Derozan and the Raptors are playing at a level that we have not seen before. Could they regress? Sure, but right now this kind of performance is unparalleled in their respective histories. Demar is more efficient than ever, he's not shy about the occasional three, and he's a very willing passer. The team on the other hand, like NJH points out, has talent all over. The second unit might have the best defense in the NBA, and they absolutely ADORE ball movement, even if for the most part they're not offensively polished enough to make shots.

    Obviously this means shit if we get to the playoffs and we get demolished by LeBron and co. again, but at the very least this looks like a noticeably better team, hopefully they won't disappoint. Basketball in Toronto is really fun at the moment.

    You're correct about the long 2's thing. Statistically, in his career he's taken about 31% of his shots from 16+ feet to below the 3 point line, this season that's down to 18.5% - he's also been better at making them, fwiw. He's turned a lot of those into 10-16 foot jumpers, which he's making 50% of the time. Every single spot on the court he's making shots at a higher rate than his career, and for some of them they're easily new bests.

    He's being really efficient taking the most inefficient shots you can take lol. Not sure how sustainable it is but its really fun.

    I think we've all said at some point that he's a very likeable guy. Good for him, the hardwork paid off

    Powell has been horrible lately and probably should just be taken out of the rotation. Zero confidence and can't make a 3 to save his life.

    Derozan drops a career and franchise best 52 points on what was an amazing game from him offensively and defensively. Also a very exciting game against the Bucks.
