DeMar DeRozan’s Strong Play Pushes Toronto Raptors to 0-2 Start

The Toronto Raptors fall to 0-2.

Despite holding a 4-0 lead late, the San Antonio Spurs used a 9-0 run to stun the Raptors, taking Saturday night’s affair by a score of 119-114.

Former Raptor star DeMar DeRozan welcomed his old team to Texas with a vengeance, leading his team with 27 points en route to the victory. After hitting a huge three-pointer to push the Spurs within one point with under a minute left, the Raptors inability to secure a crucial rebound allowed LaMarcus Aldridge to hit the game-winner on a fadeaway with 30 seconds on the clock.

On the Raptors end, Chris Boucher had himself a historic night, putting up 22 points, grabbing 10 boards and recording seven blocks. Fred VanVleet poured in 27 points in the defeat, while Pascal Siakam finished the night with 16 points, 15 boards and eight dimes. Kyle Lowry had himself a double-double as well.

There were most definitely some bright spots despite the second straight loss, but once again, both OG Anunoby and Norman Powell put forth disappointing performances, while the defense remained as lacklustre as it was in the season opener.

The Raptors will now take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday as they search for their first win.
