NBA scores 2017: DeMar DeRozan carries the Raptors to a massive victory



By Whitney Medworth

The Raptors took over the fourth quarter to defeat the Celtics

In a game where the Celtics dominated most often, the Raptors dominated most when it mattered. In their alternate Huskies uniforms, the Raptors put together a fourth quarter comeback to lift themselves over the Celtics, 114-106, in Toronto.

DeMar DeRozan was there for the Raptors when they needed him, scoring a season high 41 points while grabbing 13 rebounds to go with it. After blowing fourth quarter leads in back to back games, the Raptors were the ones making a late game comeback this time. Trailing by nine points with six minutes remaining, DeRozan took over and never looked back. He was virtually unstoppable and the Celtics had no answers.

Jonas Valanciunas had quite a night of his own, grabbing a career high 23 rebounds with 10 of those coming in the fourth quarter. Valaciunas was as every bit important to the Raptors win as DeRozan was, who also had 18 points and two blocks on the night.
