On Monday night, the Raptors earned a much-needed and hard fought win over the visiting Rockets 99-96. This improves their record to 44-30 and also puts them only a game behind the Bulls for the third seed in the east.
That said, this victory wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible performance of their All-Star DeMar DeRozan—who got the better of MVP candidate James Harden by exploding for a career-high of 42 points in leading his team to victory.
