Notebook: Raptors 100, Nuggets 90


Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Feb 01, 2014 12:50 AM - Updated Sat Feb 01, 2014 12:50 AM

THE FACT: The Toronto Raptors won in Denver for the first time since the 2002-03 season and recorded their first 11-win January in 12 years.

THE LEAD: DeMar DeRozan returned to the lineup to score 19 points, Terrence Ross had 18 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the short-handed Denver Nuggets 100-90 on Friday night.

Jonas Valanciunas had 13 points and eight rebounds for the Raptors, who have won five of six.

Toronto (25-21) has been on a roll since the start of 2014, going 11-6 and taking control of the Atlantic Division. The Raptors are four games ahead of Brooklyn.

J.J. Hickson had 18 points and 13 rebounds and Evan Fournier also scored 18 for the Nuggets (22-23), who have lost two straight at home and dropped to 12-11 at Pepsi Center.

QUOTABLE: "We don't want anyone to feel sorry for us; we're not going to feel sorry for ourselves. We'll continue to fight, stay positive, keep working and be more fundamentally sound."
-- Nuggets coach Brian Shaw on team's growing injury list

THE STAT: The Nuggets' 26 turnovers were a season high and led to 29 points for the Raptors. Denver scored just 14 points off Toronto turnovers.

TURNING POINT: DeRozan returned after missing two games and eased back into the flow. He had 14 of his 19 points in the third quarter, when the Raptors turned a 62-60 lead into an 86-70 advantage heading into the fourth.

QUOTABLE II: "I didn't want to force myself early on. I wanted to fit into what the guys have been doing the last two games, try to get my rhythm back. I picked it up in the third quarter."
-- DeMar DeRozan

HOT: Ross did most of his damage in the first half when he scored 16 points. His fast-break dunk at the end of the second quarter brought the Toronto bench to its feet and gave the Raptors a 60-53 lead heading into the break. Ross is averaging 22.8 points and 6.3 rebounds in his last four games.

NOT: The Nuggets offense has sputtered without Ty Lawson, who is out with a strain of the left rotator cuff. Lawson's speed and driving ability creates offense for himself and his teammates. Randy Foye set a career-high with 16 assists but Lawson was sorely missed.

QUOTABLE III: "This is definitely tough. One of the first things coach told us in training camp is we're going to be a no-excuse team. We have guys that our out but that doesn't mean other guys can't step up. If everybody does a little more we can make up for it. But our point guards are definitely missed."
-- J.J. Hickson

INSIDE THE ARENA: The Pepsi Center had more fans wearing orange Denver Broncos jerseys than Denver Nuggets gear.

GOOD MOVE: Without Denver's top playmakers out, the Raptors pressured the ball as much as possible. It contributed to the Nuggets' turnover number and provided Toronto with some easy baskets.

BAD MOVE: The Raptors got comfortable after taking a 27-point lead and let the Nuggets creep back in. Denver used an 11-0 run to make it 99-86 with 3:32 left, drawing the ire of head coach Dwane Casey.

QUOTABLE IV: "We can't be satisfied with the way we played in the fourth quarter. We haven't done anything in this league to think because we have a 20-point lead that teams are going to let you do what you're going to do. We'll take the W, but it was not a quality finish."
-- Dwane Casey

NOTABLE: Nuggets guard Nate Robinson underwent surgery Friday to repair his torn left ACL. He will be out for the remainder of the season. ... Toronto snapped a nine-game road losing streak in Denver. ... The Nuggets shot 56 percent in the first half and 34 percent in the second. ... The Raptors were 18-for-20 from the free-throw line. ... All five Denver starters scored in double figures for the seventh time this season. The Nuggets are 4-3 in those games.

UP NEXT: For the Raptors, Saturday @ Portland, Monday @ Utah, Wednesday @ Sacramento. For the Nuggets, Monday vs. L.A. Clippers, Wednesday vs Milwaukee, Friday @ New York.
