Demar DeRozan is set for a historic year when it comes to personal best in the NBA with scoring. This man last night scored 45 points while shooting 6/9 from three then overall shooting 13 of 12 from the field.

When we talk about this effort from Demar he's becoming a household name at the shooting guard position. Night after night Demar seems to get more comfortable in his efforts as he plays this amazing standout run this 2017-2018 season.

It's about time we actually start to acknowledge Ben Simmons, a leading candidate for rookie of the year, he had 20 points for the Sixers. My co-host on the "Ballin" show Drew Ebanks will totally agree with this one.

Toronto had a difficult night bottling him up as this young man is showing some huge upside by missing a year due to a foot injury.

Side note Kyle Lowry scored 22 points to help push past this pesky 76ers team which who seem to have the ability to show who is the next youth movement in the NBA eastern conference.

This marks the Raptors 11th game winning out of 12. These two teams pair up again Saturday night in Toronto. Get ready for another standout game.
