[TORONTO] — The Toronto Raptors played host to the New York Knicks last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 92 to 91 Raps victory. The win bumps Toronto's record up to 36-24 on the season, while the loss drags New York's down to 24-36. Despite the victory, the result is somewhat hollow considering the offense that seemed to lack much of the kick it's shown so far this season. The Raptors will happily take the boost in the win column, but have much work to do if they want to keep padding their portfolio.

On this night it was DeMar DeRozan leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 37 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 37 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. 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.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Courtney Lee did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Knicks. Lee's 16 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

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 Knicks, 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 while the visiting Knicks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
