Toronto had a great last week, beating Milwaukee twice and blowing out the Bulls in Chicago.
Both games against the Bucks saw some notable individual performances. DeMar DeRozan scored a franchise-high 52 points in an overtime victory in Toronto to begin the week. His performance prompted the Toronto Star to publish an article titled “Why DeMar DeRozan is already the Greatest Raptor.”
It was close at halftime in Milwaukee over the weekend until the third quarter when Jonas Valanciunas outscored the Bucks by himself, 20–19. Valanciunas also grabbed nine rebounds in the quarter and Toronto opened up a 26-point lead.
Valanciunas’ role will forever be limited because of his style of play, but there were some people who didn’t think he would stick around the league for this long as part of a dying breed of traditional big men.
What some failed — and still fail — to realize is that a mismatch works both ways and when opponents get too small, Valanciunas can punish them. It’s good to see.
The Nets also had a chance to win three games last week, but came up just short on Saturday night. Previously, Brooklyn defeated Orlando and Minnesota before falling by two to Boston.
The Nets lost the turnover battle to Boston, 16–4, but still managed to hold the Celtics to just 87 points. They also missed a staggering 25 three-points (6 for 31) in a game they must feel like they should have won.
After scoring 26, including the game-winning two, against Minnesota earlier in the week, Spencer Dinwiddie dropped another 20 on the Celtics to lead Brooklyn in scoring. He’s up to 13 points per game on better than 36 percent shooting from three.
Jahlil Okafor scored 12 points in 13 minutes off the bench and grabbed five rebounds, too. He is going to have no choice but to play hard in however many minutes Kenny Atkinson gives him. It appears he’s more than just willing to do that at this time, though.
