DeRozan propels Raptors to win

PORTLAND, Ore.—DeMar DeRozan credited Toronto's second unit for Portland's ugly second quarter.

The Trail Blazers were held to just six total points—Evan Turner's lay-up and four free throws—in the period and Toronto went on to win 99-85 last night.

“They did something big for us holding them to one field goal throughout the whole quarter,” DeRozan said about the bench.
