article imageNBA Scores: Toronto Raptors rally past Pelicans 107-100

By Larry Seely     Mar 19, 2014 in Sports
New Orleans - Toronto got a big win on the road Wednesday night after overcoming a 14-point deficit, defeating New Orleans 107-100. The win keeps the Raptors in third place overall in the East and on track for home court advantage in the NBA Playoffs.
DeMar DeRozan was the big gun on the night, scoring a game-high 31 points, but former Pelicans point guard Greivis Vasquez scored six points down the stretch to help seal the win.
Despite a poor shooting night, Toronto had four players score in double figures. Kyle Lowry scored 23 on just 6-18 shooting from the floor and Amir Johnson added 17 points and nine rebounds.
New Orleans was led by forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who came off the bench to score 19 points and added ten rebounds. Tyreke Evans added 18 points, but the Pelicans were hammered on the glass with a 48-34 disadvantage.
The win improved the Toronto Raptors to 38-29 for the 2013-14 NBA season, but they must continue to play well, especially on the road as the Bulls and Brooklyn Nets are right on their heels and a first round series at home could be huge for the franchise.
