Fresh off starting in last weekend’s All-Star Game, and with Kyle Lowry out with a right wrist injury, DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 43 points to lead Toronto back from a 17-point deficit to a 107-97 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night. The absence of his fellow All-Star brought on a change in mindset for DeRozan, who shot 15 of 28 from the floor in surpassing the 42 points he had against Houston on March 30, 2015. “It always changes, especially when he’s not out there,” DeRozan said. “Understanding attention is going to be focused on me, so I’ve got to pick it up a little bit more, be a little bit more aggressive, pick and choose my spots ahead of time, and that’s what I tried to do tonight.”
Ibaka can make three-pointers (38.8%), defend the rim (1.6 blocks per game) and give Toronto more flexibility in their lineup, allowing it to play big or small depending on the situation. “With a veteran like Serge who understands fitting in and everything about the league, I don’t think it should take long,” All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan said. “It’s on us to hop out the gate and take advantage of a guy like Serge. It’s given us a jolt. It sucks to see Terrance Ross leave but at the same, this is an opportunity to make something out of what we’ve been going through.”
