DeRozan scores 25, Spurs rally from 18 down, beat Raptors

Siakam and Powell returned after missing 11 games apiece - Siakam injured his groin on December 18 in Detroit, while Powell injured his shoulder in the same game.

Siakam is averaging 25.1 points and 8.0 rebounds a game this season, while Powell has averaged 14.4 points and 3.9 boards.

Raptors: Toronto is still without center Marc Gasol, who has also been out since December 18, and guard Fred VanVleet, who sat for the third straight because of a strained right hamstring. San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan took all his frustrations out on the rim against the Toronto Raptors, the team he spent nine seasons with. The Spurs would rise against nine before Lowry, Powell and Ibaka reacted with back-to-back-to-back three-pointers to tie the game with 1:17 to play, causing the Scotiabank Arena crowd to get into a frenzy. Ibaka's double-double was his career-best eighth straight.

"You always want to start quickly, but they gave me a different look that no-one threw this year, a kind of corralling me, trapping me, so it's kind of like Floyd Mayweather: first few rounds you feel it and then attack, "DeRozan said".

Spurs: Playing in Toronto as a visitor for only the second time, DeRozan received loud applause when he was introduced before the game. Leonard drained two free throws in the dying seconds while the Toronto crowd chanted "M-V-P!"

Raptors fans gave DeRozan a standing ovation during a tribute video on Sunday evening.

"I played against him this summer and I didn't know who he was", DeRozan said of Boucher. "It's fantastic to be able to get that much recognition".

DeRozan's teammates were happy for him.

"Usually our fourth quarter defense is great, but it wasn't tonight", said Raptors coach Nick Nurse. "He is very unselfish, he wants to win, plays in the right way". I told myself - once I saw him down there - that I was going to go to the basket and be aggressive. "To come back here, play great and get a win, it just feels good". Powell scored 20 points and Siakam had 15, including 12 in the first. Toronto took a 28-21 advantage into the second. "Definitely a bit exhausted, but I'll take that if I'm not there for a month". "I was at least trying to get fouled, and I dunked it". "I felt I could have been way more aggressive".

Toronto shot just 32 per cent from long distance in the first half, but San Antonio was even worse at 20 per cent.
