[TORONTO] — The Toronto Raptors played host to the Boston Celtics last night and the Raps did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 114-106 victory. The win bumps Toronto's record up to 25-13 on the season, while the loss drags Boston's down to 23-15. Though a win's a win and Raptors fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from DeMar DeRozan led all players in the contest and his 41 points, 13 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 37 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Ask anybody, however - DeRozan included - and the most important part is that the Raptors walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining DeRozan in the winning effort was Jonas Valanciunas. Had it not been for Valanciunas rounding out the Raps's attack with 18 points, 23 rebounds and 0 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Toronto's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Celtics, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Raps will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Raps will be a date with the Brooklyn Nets while the visiting Celtics will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Washington Wizards.
