DeMar DeRozan was in an unfamiliar position Tuesday in Phoenix.

While the Raptors were closing out the game, DeRozan was on the bench. In fact, he was there for most of the night playing a season-low 22:35.

For the first time this season, he did not see the floor for even a second in the fourth.

On the same night head coach Dwane Casey shuffled his lineup sending Amir Johnson to the bench and talked extensively about the need for everyone to be accountable, the long stint on the bench for one of his core players had to raise a few eyebrows.
