DeRozan scored 22 points (8-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-9 FT) while adding eight assists and four rebounds in 46 minutes during Sunday's 109-102 Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers.
He responded to the Cavs' defensive attention by dishing a career playoff high in assists, but DeRozan's efforts still fell short of staving off elimination for the Raptors. He finished the campaign with postseason averages of 22.4 points, 4.9 boards, 3.4 assists and 1.4 steals, the fourth straight season in which he's topped 20 points a game in the playoffs.
DeRozan tallied 37 points (12-23 FG, 13-13 FT), three assists, three steals and two rebounds across 40 minutes in Friday's 115-94 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 3.
The Raptors now have their backs against the wall as they are down 3-0 in the series, but DeRozan's play in Game 3 was not the reason the team lost. He didn't have a single turnover and was perfect from the charity stripe. With Kyle Lowry (ankle) out, DeRozan will need to continue to play big in Game 4 and get some help from his teammates if they want to live to see another game against the scorching-hot LeBron James and the Cavs.
DeRozan recorded five points (2-11 FG, 1-3 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes during a 125-103 loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
DeRozan was atrocious in Game 2, as he went for a season-low five points in the blowout loss. After he had not scored in single digits at all during the regular season, DeRozan now has a single digit effort in the team's first and second round series'. Expect him to play better at home.
DeRozan contributed 32 points (12-24 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five steals, four rebounds and three assists across 40 minutes during Thursday's 92-89 Game 6 victory over the Bucks.
DeRozan carried the scoring workload for the Raptors, as no other player on the squad contributed more than 13 points on route to eliminating the Bucks from the playoffs. In addition to his offensive showing, DeRozan also contributed a season-high five steals, helping hold down the fort on defense. Though the swingman shot just 42.2 percent from the field in the series coming into Thursday's contest, he was being checked by the lengthy defensive presences of Tony Snell, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo. As the Raptors move on to face the Cavaliers in the next round, it seems unlikely that DeRozan will have to deal with as many mismatches as he did against the Bucks, possibly allowing him to have a more efficient campaign against the defending NBA Champions.
DeRozan scored 33 points (12-22 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-9 FT) while adding nine rebounds, five assists and four steals in 40 minutes during Saturday's 87-76 Game 4 win over the Bucks.
He just about single-handedly evened the series Saturday, leading the Raptors in points, boards, assists and steals while taking and making over half of their free throws. A huge effort from DeRozan should have been predictable, as it's the fourth time in his career he's followed up a postseason game in which he scored less than 10 points with one in which he poured in more than 30.
