This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.

TORONTO -- DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors pushed aside the Minnesota Timberwolves -- again.With Toronto down 95-94 with 8:46 left, DeRozan and Lowry keyed a 17-4 Raptors run that took the game away from the youthful Timberwolves. Toronto eventually pulled out a 124-110 victory, handing Minnesota its 13th straight loss at the Air Canada Centre.We just picked it up, DeRozan said. We kicked in our experience of understanding how we have to win games. We cant underestimate a team like that that plays extremely hard.DeRozan had a team-high 27 points for the Raptors, Lowry added 25 points with 11 assists, and Jonas Valanciunas registered his team-leading sixth double-double on 20 points and 10 rebounds.We just have guys that are used to it, trying to come through at the end of games and sticking with the game plan and sticking with the course of action, Lowry said.After Toronto fell behind 11-2, coach Dwane Casey sat all his starters except for DeRozan in an attempt to get kick-start his team into action. Toronto still trailed by 10 at the end of the first quarter, but it sent a message.We can be a good team, but we cant be special if we allow things to happen that happened in the first two quarters, Casey said.His counterpart, Tom Thibodeau, shared that sentiment, especially after seeing his team enter the final 12 minutes with the lead, 89-88.

DeRozan played his 543rd game for the Raptors, breaking a tie with Morris Peterson for the most in team history.
