DeMar DeRozan shot just 6-of-17 in Sunday's loss to the Heat, but he sank 14-of-14 FTs to finish with 27 points, three rebounds and three assists.

DeRozan is convinced that playing alongside Rudy Gay will elevate his game, and at the very least it will shift some tough defenders onto Gay, freeing up DeRozan for easier looks. His shots weren't falling but his aggression offensively was a welcome sight, and he's averaging a solid 21.2 points in the past six games.
