POUND THE ROCK STARS OF THE NIGHT - RAPTORS 94, NETS 73

POUND THE ROCK STARS - On a nightly basis, no matter how good or bad the Raps play, no matter if they blow out a team or if they get blown out and no matter if they win or lose, these are the Raptors with the best 'Pound the Rock' status for the night.

FINAL SCORE: RAPS 94, NETS 73     SEASON RECORD: 7W-14L


POUND THE ROCK STAR #1: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE:  27 pts (8-12), 11-16 FT 4 rebs, 1 stl, 1 blk

Whoa, who was this tonight?  DeMar DeRozan came out of his shell tonight with his 27 point performance against the New Jersey Nets.  8-12 shooting and a career high 16 free throw attempts?  You can't ask for much more than that.  Welcome back, DeMar.  Hopefully we'll see more of these performances on a consistent basis.


POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: JERRYD BAYLESS

LINE:  17 pts (7-15), 6 rebs, 3 ast, 1 Stl

There was a new Raptors starting five tonight as Coach Casey went small ball against the Nets.  And it worked.  With Jose and Bayless as the starting guards, Bayless had an impressive 17 pts on the night including this point guard-to-point guard alley oop jam.




POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: LINAS KLEIZA

LINE:  15 pts, 3 rebs, 1 stl

Kleiza did his best Leandro Barbosa and filled in at the sixth man role, racking up 15 points in 27 minutes off the bench.  A great win for the Raps as they came out strong from the start and never looked back.

SHOUTOUTS TO THE NETS:

Deron Williams

LINE: 24 pts, 6 ast, 4 reb

He was the lone guy on the Nets who put in work on Sunday.  Just another day at the office for D-Will.

Next up for the Raps: vs ATL
