DeRozan scores, Raptors roll past Wizards

Get up, DeRo

Get up, DeRo

On second thought, I could get used to Patrick O’Bryant closing out games for the Raptors. O’Bryant came through with three key baskets and a couple big defensive plays down the stretch this afternoon, helping seal a 100-93 win over the Wizards to run Toronto’s preseason record to 2-2. (Note to Jay Triano: If you happened to stumble upon this, I wasn’t being serious about O’Bryant playing in tight games. Still, nice finish for the young man today.)

Aside from Marcus Banks’ three fouls in less than two minutes of play, the biggest story was the breakout of DeMar DeRozan. DeRozan, starting his fourth consecutive game, scored a preseason-high 19 points in 36 minutes, including a pair of dunks to help swing the momentum in the Raptors’ favour in the fourth quarter. DeRozan was just 5-of-12 from the field but managed to get to the line 10 times, making nine.

Also of note for Toronto, Sonny Weems scored four points (including an impressive coast-to-coast dunk) and grabbed six reboounds in 10 first half minutes before leaving with a toe injury and not returning. I don’t mean to put too much stock in preseason play (because if I did, Jose Calderon would be in line to average about five points this season), but Weems is looking like he could be a solid rotation player.

Anyway, the Raptors get Boston Wednesday in Hartford before returning to face the Rockets at the ACC Thursday. No officially word, but Hedo Turkoglu’s extended summer jam should come to and end with him dressing against the Celtics.
