DeMar DeRozan scored 35 points on 11-of-22 shooting (including a career-high tying six treys) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Raptors’ 130-105 win over the Blazers on Friday.
DeRozan added 7-of-8 hits from the foul line to boot and is sitting on a top 30-40 season (8/9 cat). Jonas Valanciunas added 18 points with eight boards, two assists, one block and another two treys, as he has battled back from drop questions to late-early round returns over the last month. Valanciunas is creeping three quarters of the way to a full 3-pointer per game in that span. Serge Ibaka managed just seven points, five boards and a trey, but owners should continue evaluating him as a mid-to-late round value going forward.
