I'm glad he's evolved into the type of player who can impact a game even if his shot is off.

Well, Affalo also was doing a good job containing him in that 3rd quarter. I noticed DeMar was settling at times too. You're right, as he was grabbing key rebounds and I hope he can continue to that, besides his scoring.

I don't like the title of this recap though:



It wasn't DeMar who lead the way. In points, sure, but like I mentioned before there was a dry spell for him.

The 3 things that did lead the way was Calderon, the Raptors defense in the 4th, and I will even say the bench play of Amir and Klieza that sparked the run was as good or better than DeMar "leading the way".

Off course, I thought DeMar was key overall (2nd best Raptor today), but titles like that just annoy me when it's not true.

I would agree. He's got better more NBA experience, been on the team longer, and can create a lot on the offensive end. Got to roll the dice with him.
