DeMar DeRozan Jersey – Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic From China

DeMar DeRozan is quick to point out that his stunning scoring spree to start the season is no one-man show.
DeRozan had 30 points, including four in overtime, and the Toronto Raptors held off the Denver Nuggets for a 113-111 victory Friday night.
It was the 10th time in 12 games this season that DeRozan, the NBA’s leading scorer, has reached 30 points — most of any player in the league.
“I’ve had a lot of help,” DeRozan said. “People have looked for me within the offence. Tonight it was JV (centre Jonas Valanciunas) setting screens for me. When the defence packed it in on him, he got me the ball for shots.”

DeRozan, Lowry and Ross come up big in Denver
Sam Mitchell and Leo Rautins credit DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry for stepping up when the Raptors needed them the most in their overtime win over the Nuggets, and praise Terrence Ross for knocking down some clutch shots down the stretch.

DeRozan also gave credit to Terrence Ross, who hit a 3-pointer with 37.6 seconds left in the extra period to put Toronto up by two.
“Terrence has heart and he is more than capable of making a big shot,” DeRozan said. “You know when you have another threat like that out there who is going to play extremely hard on both ends, it’s great.”
Denver’s Emmanuel Mudiay was short with a desperation heave from halfcourt at the final buzzer.
Kyle Lowry added 18 points and 13 assists for the Raptors, who swept the two-game season series.
Mudiay and Wilson Chandler each scored 25 points to lead the Nuggets, who have lost five of six. Denver also was plagued by turnovers, including two in overtime.

Ross on his big three in OT to help Raptors seal the deal
After finishing with 16 points off the bench, including a big three-pointer in overtime, Terrence Ross discusses his performance and the team’s hard fought win over the Nuggets.

“It’s the story of the game and the story of our short season,” coach Michael Malone said. “Emmanuel throws it out of bounds and Jameer (Nelson) steps out of bounds. Unfortunate timing for those turnovers.”
After trailing by five going into the fourth quarter, Toronto took an 87-86 lead on a 3-pointer by Ross with 7:57 left.
No more than three points separated the teams during the remainder of regulation.
DeRozan hit a jumper to put Toronto up 99-98, and Valanciunas added one of two free throws moments later. Nelson answered with a 3 to put Denver back up by a point, but DeRozan hit a jumper with 15 seconds left as the Raptors regained the lead.
Chandler was fouled on a drive to the basket and made one of two free throws to tie it. DeRozan’s baseline jumper at the end of regulation went in and out, sending the game to overtime tied at 102.
Behind a 38-point second quarter, their second-highest output in any period this season, the Nuggets took a 57-52 lead at halftime after trailing by as many as 12.
Chandler fueled the outburst, scoring 12 points in the quarter.
“We fought to get to overtime but we had too many turnovers. As a team, we didn’t make the screens, we didn’t make the good passes. I think that’s the reason we lost the game.” — Nuggets centre Nikola Jokic.

DeMar DeRozan won a shootout with Russell Westbrook, scoring 37 points to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 112-102 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.
DeRozan, the NBA’s leading scorer with a 34.1 average heading into the game, made 13 of 22 field goals and 11 of 15 free throws.
“You know, sometimes you’ve got to tip your hat, and good offence can beat great defence,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. “He had that happen several times where he made some very, very difficult shots.”
Westbrook had 36 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, but he made just 9 of 26 shots and committed eight turnovers.
“I thought everybody that guarded him did a decent job, but it was a five-man job,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “Not one guy is going to stop him, and I say that all the time. It’s on the team.”
Kyle Lowry added 19 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds and Patrick Patterson had 13 points for the Raptors. Toronto, which shot 51.8 per cent from the field, has won four of five.
The Thunder (6-2) entered the night tied for the NBA’s best record, but their offence was inconsistent against the Raptors, and they couldn’t find and answer for DeRozan. Victor Oladipo scored 18 points and Steven Adams added 14 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City.
The Raptors led 62-55 at halftime behind DeRozan’s 22 points. Toronto scored 16 points off 11 Oklahoma City turnovers in the first half.
“Little things like us turning the ball over, then leading to fast breaks,” Oladipo said. “Rotations weren’t great today. Little things like that that we can correct. We’ve just got to continue getting better and push forward.”
A bounce pass by Lowry led to a jam by DeMarre Carroll that gave Toronto a 68-59 lead, and a basket by Pascal Siakam bumped the lead to 11 and led to a timeout by the Thunder. DeRozan’s mid-range jumper in the closing seconds of the third quarter gave the Raptors an 88-75 lead.
The Thunder opened the fourth quarter with a 9-1 run to cut the deficit to 89-84. Oklahoma City eventually cut the deficit to four, but the Raptors rallied, and Lowry’s 3-pointer bumped Toronto’s lead back to 10 with 3:32 to play.
“DeMar did a great job of getting to his spots, getting to the free throw line, and Kyle did a great job running the team,” Oladipo said. “We’re going to have to do a better job next time we play them.”
Raptors: DeRozan scored 11 points on 5-for-9 shooting in the first quarter. … Shot 13 for 23 in the second quarter and outscored the Thunder 42-28. … C Jonas Valanciunas missed his second straight game with a left knee contusion. … F Terrence Ross sat out with a sprained right index finger. … C Lucas Nogueira scored 10 points on 5-for-5 shooting and had seven rebounds.
Thunder: Scored the game’s first 12 points. … Shot 52.6 per cent in the first quarter. … Donovan was called for a technical foul late in the second quarter. … Made just 12 of 34 3-point attempts.
Westbrook shot a season-high 12 3-pointers, and made three. It followed a 1-for-6 effort beyond the arc against the Miami Heat on Monday. He’s hit a bit of a rough patch after a blistering start, making 14 of 42 shots his past two games combined.
DeRozan on fellow Los Angeles native Westbrook: “I’ve known Russ way before the NBA was thought of. It’s just a thing. You always support guys from L.A. To see the type of player he is — when you start naming off players from L.A., you put in a Russ, myself and all the other guys from L.A. — it’s a great group of guys. It’s great to see what he’s doing. The respect has always been there.”
