TORONTO – My look at some of the best and worst performances from the Toronto Raptors' 96-76 victory over the 76ers on Sunday at Air Canada Centre:
Best performance: This was a tough one, because DeMar DeRozan had a game-high 25 points while making 13 of 14 foul shots. But I gave it to his Raptors' teammate Luis Scola. The power forward scored 22 points on 10-for-14 shooting. He also had five rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes, 9 seconds of action. He basically schooled the Sixers.
Worst performance: This has to go to Terrence Ross. The Raptors swingman was held scoreless on 0-for-6 shooting in 28:43 of action.
Best defensive performance: Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry gets this award. The former Villanova standout blocked three shots and had a steal. All five of his rebounds were defensive.
Best performance in a losing effort: Jahlil Okafor wins this award after producing a team-high 23 points, a game-high 14 rebounds and one block. He has scored at least 20 points in each of the last three games.
Worst statistic: You have to give this to the Sixers committing 22 turnovers. The Raptors scored 28 points off of them.
Best statistic: This award goes to Sixers hold a 52-41 rebounding advantage.
