DeMar DeRozan will look at the boxscore from his most impressive outing in weeks and the Raptors can only hope something clicks in his brain when he does.

In Sunday's 94-73 triumph over the New Jersey Nets, DeRozan did all the attacking with all the aggression his coaches have wanted all season and it turned into a career night for him.

The third-year swingman got to the free-throw line 16 times — a single-game high for him — in the first game in weeks in which he was a dominant offensive force.

"Getting to the free-throw line 16 times was huge for him," coach Dwane Casey said after the game. "That's what he has to continue to do, to attack, because he's too athletic and too quick not to get to the rim in an 'iso' situation."
