DeRozan scored 24 points (8-18, 0-4 3PT, 8-9 FT) to go with one rebound, five assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Monday's 117-111 loss to Philadelphia.
After averaging 34.6 points in his previous three games against Philadelphia, DeRozan was kept in check in the final regular season meeting between the two teams. Mainly, the guard was stifled from beyond the arc, shooting 0-of-4 from three. DeRozan has improved his three-point game to the level of a career-best 36.6 percent for the season. However, DeRozan was ice cold from long range on Monday.
DeRozan scored 25 points (10-29 FG, 1-3 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go with four rebounds and six assists in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 90-89 loss to Miami.
After Tuesday's 25 points, DeRozan has now scored at least 20 points in his last seven games. However, the guard was far from efficient from the floor en route to continuing his scoring run, sinking 34.4 percent of his 29 shots. In fairness, DeRozan has been a high volume shooter as of late, averaging 22 shots over seven games. The trade off is an average of 29.5 points over this span.
DeRozan accounted for 35 points (14-30 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-9 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one block in 42 minutes Monday in Toronto's win over Brooklyn.
DeRozan has been an elite scoring option for years. In the midst of his fifth consecutive season averaging more than 20 points per game, the 27-year-old wing is also averaging a career high in assists with five per game. The improvement that has fantasy owners most intrigued is Derozan's uptick in three-point shooting. He has taken 3.2 shots from deep this season, a career high, while connecting on 36.4-percent of those attempts, also a career high. DeRozan is substituting a chunk of his mid-range attempts with more shots beyond the arc. His shot selection seems to be improving, and fantasy owners are enjoying every second of it.
DeRozan scored 35 points (10-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 10-10 FT) while adding six assists, three rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 124-115 win over the Bulls.
All of a sudden DeRozan is shooting like a long-lost Splash Brother, going 10-for-17 from three-point range over the first two games of 2018 and 25-for-46 (54.3 percent) from beyond the arc over his last eight games. He's averaging 29.6 points, 4.9 assists, 3.8 boards, 3.1 threes and 1.3 steals over that stretch, and if he truly has added a consistent long-range element to his already impressive offensive arsenal, he should remain among the NBA's scoring elite for the remainder of the season.
DeRozan scored 52 points (17-29 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 13-13 FT) while adding eight assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 43 minutes during Monday's 131-127 overtime win over the Bucks.
The 52 points set a new Raptors record, as DeRozan became the third player in franchise history to hit the half-century mark in a game, joining Vince Carter and Terrence Ross. DeRozan took control from the opening tip, scoring the first nine points of the game and finishing the first quarter with 21, and while it doesn't show up in the box score his defensive pressure on Giannis Antetokounmpo helped prevent the Bucks from stealing the win with a late rally in the fourth. After averaging a strong 25.2 points a game in December, DeRozan got an early jump on topping that number in January.
