DeMar DeRozan didn’t dwell on his disappointing playoff debut. After missing his first eight field goals on Saturday and finishing with only 14 points on 3-for-13 shooting, DeRozan decided to take it easy. Toronto’s 94-87 loss to the Brooklyn Nets ended just before 3:30 p.m., which gave him a while to think about what happened.
“I sat in my room the rest of the day,” DeRozan said. “I didn’t leave the room. I didn’t turn the TV on. I didn’t watch no game. I just cleared my mind.”
The film session gave DeRozan confidence in his team’s ability to bounce back. He saw correctable mistakes and a game that still ended up going down to the wire.
