DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points in each of Toronto's two games in London. He is averaging 21.1 points per game in the seven games since the break.
“His game is starting to evolve even more than we probably expected it to just because he’s had the basketball and he’s had the experience of having the ball in his hands a lot more, and he’s playing a lot more minutes than we thought he would,” Jay Triano said. “It looks effortless sometimes just the way he creates a shot.”
DeRozan could see a lot more of the ball in late-game situations.
“I love it. I love it,” DeRozan said of getting the ball down the stretch. “It’s an adrenaline rush. It’s fun. It’s definitely a challenge.”
