DeMar DeRozan struggled for the first 3 quarters but then exploded for 17 of his 30 points in the Raptors GM2 victory against the Brooklyn Nets. In the final 5 minutes, DeRozan scored 10 points and was 2 of 2 from the field and 6 of 6 from the free throw line.
“He bounced back, refocused,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “Making those free throws down the stretch was huge. For him to come through after a tough first game and everyone doubting him, I was really happy with that.”
“It’s everything you dream about, especially when you become a professional athlete, to be at the highest level and have the trust of your coaching staff and your teammates to have the ball in your hands and win a game for them,” DeRozan said. “That’s big.”
