DeRozan leads Raptors past Rockets 107-103
Question of the Day
“We’re all jumbled up right now,” McHale said.
DeMar DeRozan scored 29 points, Jonas Valanciunas and Greivis Vasquez each had 15 and the Toronto Raptors won their seventh straight home meeting with Houston, beating the Rockets 107-103 on Wednesday night.
McHale, who called his team “jumbled” before they faced Toronto, had little left to say after Houston’s third straight defeat.
“We let up defensively,” a terse McHale said. “We were terrible. We let them do whatever they wanted to do.”
“We’re a team that’s desperate for a win right now,” Jeremy Lin said.
Houston’s next chance at victory comes Friday, when they host Oklahoma City.
Harden used the world “tough” eight times in less than two minutes as he assessed Houston’s plight.
“We’ve got to figure out a way to get through it,” Harden said. “All the good teams this season have had their struggles. Ours is coming late in the season and we’ve got to figure it out.”
Terrence Ross scored 14 points and John Salmons had 12 as the short-handed Raptors won for the fourth time in five games.
Toronto was without point guard Kyle Lowry, sidelined with a sore left knee. Lowry, who’s averaging 17.4 points and 7.6 assists, injured his knee in a collision with LeBron James in the second quarter of Monday’s loss at Miami.
With Brooklyn losing to the Knicks, Toronto moved 2 1-2 games ahead of the Nets atop the Atlantic Division. The Raptors remain tied with Chicago, who beat Atlanta Wednesday night, for the third seed in the Eastern Conference.
“Every win is great for us right now for what we’re trying to do, especially with Kyle out and Amir out,” Casey said. “Hopefully it gives our guys some confidence.”
