DeRozan has career-high 43, Raptors beat Celtics 107-97

TORONTO (AP) New talent helped the Toronto Raptors, though a familiar face pushed them over the finish line.

Fresh off starting in last weekend's All-Star Game, and with Kyle Lowry out with a right wrist injury, DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 43 points to lead Toronto back from a 17-point deficit to a 107-97 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

The absence of his fellow All-Star brought on a change in mindset for DeRozan, who shot 15 of 28 from the floor in surpassing the 42 points he had against Houston on March 30, 2015.
