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: RAPTOR 123, MAGIC 88 SEASON RECORD: 11W-20L
POUND THE ROCK STAR #1: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE: 21 pts (7-14), 7-8 FT, 3 reb, 3 astIf there has been one consistent Raptor this year it has been without a doubt DeMar DeRozan. As great as DeMar DeRozan has performed during their last few wins my fear was that he would soon become the team’s crutch. My fear was likely not warranted as the Raptors went on a 5 game winning streak leading up tonights win against the Orlando Magic with a team total 33 assists. It’s was clear everyone from the starters to the bench players were pulling their weight last night and the truth is that is the only way they are going to win.
