Stat Line of the Night — 1/22/2014 — DeMar DeRozan

DeMar DeRozan and Vince Carter

With Vince carter making his return to Toronto to pay another visit to his former team as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, DeMar DeRozan made a point to remind VC that the Raptors are his team now.

The Raps guard did that by scoring a career-high 40 points on just 22 field-goal attempts.  He also added three rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal as the Raptors overcame a 21-point deficit en route to a 93-85 victory.

With the win, the Raptors currently sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.  That should earn a few of their players some consideration for the NBA All-Star Game, and DeRozan is at the top of that list (along with Kyle Lowry).

For now, he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Wednesday, January 22, 2013.
