Recap


Raptors 90, 76ers 72: DeMar DeRozan broke out of a shooting slump with 19 points and all five starters scored in double figures to lead host Toronto past reeling Philadelphia.

Amir Johnson recorded his fourth double-double - and first since Dec. 9 - with 19 points and 12 rebounds. Ed Davis posted 17 points and Jose Calderon had 10 of his 14 points in the third quarter for the Raptors, who snapped a two-game losing skid by posting their ninth win in 12 outings.

Jrue Holiday scored eight straight points in the third quarter to match Thaddeus Young with a team-high 16 for the 76ers, who have dropped five in a row.

Alan Anderson pushed the Raptors' lead to 12 to start the fourth quarter before Philadelphia cut the deficit in half with a 6-0 run, highlighted by a pair of jumpers from Young. Johnson ended Toronto's scoring drought of 5:16 with a layup, and DeRozan added one of his own as Toronto seized a 77-67 lead with 4:50 to play.

DeRozan finished the contest 8-for-15 from the field - a vast improvement over his 7-for-27 effort in his previous two contests.
