DeMar DeRozan Returns in Stlye

The Toronto Raptors' all star DeMar DeRozan returned to their line up last night to play the Philadelphia 76ers.  They ended up winning 100-84 over the dismal Sixers.  DeMar DeRozan had missed their previous 21 games due to a torn groin.  During that stretch Toronto went 12-9 compared to their 14-3 record before his injury.  That proves the point, the Raptors need DeRozan in their line up.

In his return last night he scored 20 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists in only 29 minutes of play. After the game DeRozan said he didn't expect to feel as good as he did out there last night.

After the game his backcourt mate Kyle Lowry was exhilarated to have his companion back.  Even DeRozan said they are like "an old married couple."  Hopefully this old couple can storm their way back up the top of the Eastern Conference, but still play with their young flare and style.
