It came as most of his scoring does, from an area no longer valued by today’s NBA.But it was extremely fitting as that mid-range pull-up jumper that pushed DeMar DeRozan past Chris Bosh and made him the Toronto Raptors’ all-time leading scorer is exactly what has made DeRozan such a valuable commodity to the only NBA team he has ever played for.
The basket with 3:47 left in the second quarter gave him 15 points in the game and 10,276 for his career, one more than Bosh had in 509 games. DeRozan broke that mark in game No. 552.
