halftime after trailing by as many

    导出博客文章DENVER -- DeMar DeRozan is quick to point out that his stunning scoring spree to
    start the season is no one-man show.DeRozan had 30 points, including four in
    overtime, and the Toronto Raptors held off the Denver Nuggets for a 113-111
    victory Friday night.It was the 10th time in 12 games this season that DeRozan,
    the NBAs leading scorer, has reached 30 points -- most of any player in the
    league.Ive had a lot of help, DeRozan said. People have looked for me within the
    offense. Tonight it was JV (center Jonas Valanciunas) setting screens for me.
    When the defense packed it in on him, he got me the ball for shots.DeRozan also
    gave credit to Terrence Ross, who hit a 3-pointer with 37.6 seconds left in the
    extra period to put Toronto up by two.Terrence has heart and he is more than
    capable of making a big shot, DeRozan said. You know when you have another
    threat like that out there who is going to play extremely hard on both ends, its
    great.Denvers Emmanuel Mudiay was short with a desperation heave from halfcourt
    at the final buzzer.Kyle Lowry added 18 points and 13 assists for the Raptors,
    who swept the two-game season series.Mudiay and Wilson Chandler each scored 25
    points to lead the Nuggets, who have lost five of six. Denver also was plagued
    by turnovers, including two in overtime.Its the story of the game and the story
    of our short season, coach Michael Malone said. Emmanuel throws it out of bounds
    and Jameer (Nelson) steps out of bounds. Unfortunate timing for those
    turnovers.After trailing by five going into the fourth quarter, Toronto took an
    87-86 lead on a 3-pointer by Ross with 7:57 left.No more than three points
    separated the teams during the remainder of regulation.DeRozan hit a jumper to
    put Toronto up 99-98, and Valanciunas added one of two free throws moments
    later. Nelson answered with a 3 to put Denver back up by a point, but DeRozan
    hit a jumper with 15 seconds left as the Raptors regained the lead.Chandler was
    fouled on a drive to the basket and made one of two free throws to tie it.
    DeRozans baseline jumper at the end of regulation went in and out, sending the
    game to overtime tied at 102.Behind a 38-point second quarter, their
    second-highest output in any period this season, the Nuggets took a 57-52 lead
    at halftime after trailing by as many as 12.Chandler fueled the outburst,
    scoring 12 points in the quarter.QUOTABLEWe fought to get to overtime but we had
    too many turnovers. As a team, we didnt make the screens, we didnt make the good
    passes. I think thats the reason we lost the game. -- Nuggets center Nikola
    Jokic.TIP-INSRaptors: C Lucas Nogueira did not travel with the team to Denver to
    remain at home with his wife, who gave birth to their baby girl on Thursday.
    Nogueira is expected to rejoin the team in Sacramento, where the Raptors play
    the Kings on Sunday. ... F Jared Sullinger and G Delon Wright remain inactive
    while continuing to recover from left foot surgery and right shoulder surgery,
    respectively.Nuggets: The highest-scoring quarter by Denver this season was 42
    points in the first against Boston on Nov. 6. ... F Mike Miller was excused from
    the team to tend to a personal matter. ... G Gary Harris missed his third
    consecutive game with a right foot injury. ... F Will Barton remains sidelined
    with a left ankle sprain. He has missed the last nine games.UP NEXTRaptors: Make
    the second stop on their five-game road trip Sunday at Sacramento.Nuggets:
    Continue a four-game homestand by hosting Utah on Sunday night.
