POUND THE ROCK STARS OF THE NIGHT - BOBCATS 98, RAPTORS 91

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:   SPURS 113, RAPS 106    SEASON RECORD: 9W-22L
POUND THE ROCK STAR #1: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE:  29 pts (13-21), 2 ast, 3 reb
There's no question about it.  The Raps are extremely limited on offensive weapons these days.  But even with limited options, the Raps have been competing in these past few games.  So without Andrea, Jerryd or Linas....DeMar stepped up, and dropped 29 points.

POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: JOSE CALDERON
LINE:  16 pts (8-14), 11 ast, 2 stl
I don't know if he's getting moved anytime soon, but this is the best ball I've seen Jose play.  Another solid double double, that included 11 dimes and just one turnover.  In Jose's last four games, he has averaged 22 ppg, 10 assists and 1.5 spg.

POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: ANTHONY CARTER
LINE:  10 pts (3-5), 6 ast, 5 reb, 1 stl
Anthony Carter doesn't normally get love on 'Pound the Rock Stars' but AC put up his best game as a Raptor last night.  A season high in minutes and points?  You go, AC!

SHOUTOUTS TO THE SPURS:
TONY PARKER
LINE: 34 pts, 12-12 FT, 14 ast
C'est tres bien, Tony!  Parker has had his third 30+ point game this month and carried the Spurs to their ninth straight win. 

BONUS SHOUTOUTS TO CORY JOSEPH, the Canadian kid made his return to his hometown Toronto as a rookie for the Spurs.  He played just three minutes.

Next up for the Raps: vs CHA
