Lowry has triple-double, Raptors top 76ers 104-95
Kyle Lowry had 18 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, and DeMar DeRozan scored 34 points to help the Toronto Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers 104-95 on Friday night.
DeRozan scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, including seven straight early in the period as the Raptors opened a double-digit lead.
Lowry grabbed his 10th rebound late in the fourth, continuing a string of strong games he's had for the Atlantic Division leaders. He's a Philadelphia native and played at Villanova.
The Raptors moved to .500 on the road (11-11) and are 22-20 overall. But the other four teams in the division all have losing records, including Philadelphia, so they've been good enough to sit atop the standings.
Spencer Hawes had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers. Michael Carter-Williams scored 20.
