The Toronto Raptors were on the second night of a back-to-back, after a win against the Atlanta Hawks. DeRozan who scored 25 points in that game was once again the center of attraction as he went off for 42 points and helped the Raptors to a two-point win.

DeMar did not have a great first half and the Pistons were leading by as many as 14 points at the halftime. In the third quarter, he was back to his usual self and scored 13 points. The Raptors clinched the quarter, thanks to DeRozan's heroics, 40-25.

His form continued into the fourth quarter as he scored 15 points but the hook shot by Blake Griffin sent the game into overtime. In OT, DeRozan scored or assisted on every Raptors' point and they rolled past the Pistons, 121-119.
