After being part of the Select Team last summer, DeMar DeRozan has been named to the 27-man roster that will make up Team USA’s mini-camp this summer in Las Vegas.

The Raptors scored 100 points for the first time in 10 games and barely hung on against a severely shorthanded Bulls team to reach the 30-win plateau for the first time in three years.
Hooray for slightly less futile futility!
The Raps were in cruise control for the majority of the night before narrowly escaping an all too familiar fourth quarter meltdown in what was a pretty ugly finish.
Now here are some thoughts on the game…

Jose Calderon and the Pistons took advantage of a lazy fourth quarter effort from the Raptors, spoiling Rudy Gay’s great game and officially eliminating Toronto from post-season contention in the process.

Earlier this week, I wrote about how the Raptors are still far from a surefire playoff team next season, and I maintain that. Upset wins over teams like the Pacers and Knicks or blowout wins over the Pistons don’t make any more of a statement for next season than losses to the Bobcats, Cavaliers and Wizards do.
If you recall though, my main concerns in the immediate future of this team are addressing the glaring hole at backup point guard, finding another competent big man (whether a solid bench big or a starter who can let Amir excel as the third big) and getting some value out of either trading or amnestying Andrea Bargnani. The current starting lineup, however, despite all of the negative attention on the combined shot selection of Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan, may just be good enough heading into 2013-14.
