Raptors duo went down shooting

Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combined for 55 of Toronto's 87 points on Friday night. That was the seventh time in the Raptors' 20 games this postseason that they accounted for at least half the team's scoring, Elias Sports Bureau reports. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have done that seven times in the Thunder's 16 playoff games.

Raptors F DeMarre Carroll missed a ton of time this season due to knee surgery -- he had a couple of setbacks while trying to return -- but got tons of opinions from doctors and came back for the playoffs. His right elbow then got hyperextended and he dealt with a wrist injury and a hip pointer, too. He says he felt at best 70-75 percent. He is confident he will be 100 percent by training camp.

The question of course could also be: Do the Raptors want G DeMar DeRozan back at a potential max salary cap number?

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

We'll see what happens, but Raptors G DeMar DeRozan sure sounds like he wants to stay in Toronto, for what it's worth.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Raptors G Kyle Lowry speaks highly of coach Dwane Casey, who is about to enter talks on a potential contract extension.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer

Raptors G Kyle Lowry on friend DeMar DeRozan's free agency: "Enjoy it. It's a stressful time. As a friend I'm not going to give him my advice. But if he needs my ear I'll listen." Says DeRozan did same for him when he was a free agent.

How LeBron, Cavs hammered it in Game 6 (1:31)

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Raptors G Kyle Lowry averaged 30 points at home going 14-for-27 from 3-point range and committed seven turnovers during the Eastern Conference finals. But on the road he averaged 10.3 points, shot 2-for-19 from 3 and had 14 turnovers. Lowry gave it his all in Game 6 (35 points) but couldn't get enough help from his supporting cast. And so a season in which he trained so hard over the summer to get his body right, made the All-Star team, struggled with an elbow injury and his jump shot during the playoffs only to turn things around in a big way has come to an end.
