DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and the injury-riddled Toronto Raptors beat the Atlanta Hawks 102-86 on Sunday night for their second straight win over a playoff-bound team.
Alan Anderson, one of three Toronto players whose 10-day contract is about to expire, added 16 points for the Raptors, who were coming off an 84-79 win against Boston on Friday.
Toronto, bound for the NBA’s draft lottery, dominated in Atlanta. The other two former D-League players who’ve recently joined the Raptors contributed as well. Ben Uzoh, who like Anderson started, and rookie Justin Dentmon scored 10 points each.
The Hawks, who routed the Magic 109-81 Friday for their fourth win in five games, never led against the Raptors. Josh Smith scored 12 of his 26 points in the first quarter, but Atlanta allowed Toronto to shoot 55 percent (41 for 74).
