Lowry scores 30, Raptors end Rockets' win streak at 17 games

Fresh off having their 18-game winning streak snapped in Toronto on Friday, the Rockets may be without their superstar and MVP candidate Sunday in Dallas.

Kyle Lowry poured in 30 points, DeMar DeRozan had 23 points to lead Toronto. Dwane Casey's decision for the Raptors to play with more pace and take more 3's has paid off. "They did everything we asked them to do".

"That was our game plan, to keep them inside the three", Lowry said.

"Early, we didn't make our open 3s", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. I just don't see this one being close as the Raptors are just rolling at the moment and they should be able to make it nine straight with an easy double-digit win here.


Clint Capela had 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Rockets. The Raptors have the longest winning streak in the east at eight.

Toronto improved to 28-5 at home, the best record in the National Basketball Association.

DeRozan hit 39 percent of his 3-pointers in December, and while he's still adapting to making that a part of his game - he's attempting a career-high 3.6 threes per game, which has added a brand new dimension to his already-dangerous perimeter game. Houston fouled Valanciunas, who made a pair to put Toronto up by three with 5.4 seconds to go. DeRozan had seven points for the Raptors.
