DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and Jonas Valanciunas added 18 to help the Toronto Raptors turn back the Utah Jazz 94-79 on Monday night for their fourth win in five games.
    
DeRozan looked to get his teammates involved in the first half but once Kyle Lowry left with a knee injury, the new All-Star took matters into his own hands with nine points in the fourth quarter to quell a Jazz comeback. The Raptors scored 13 of the game's final 16 points.
    
Valanciunas and Amir Johnson, who had 11 points and 11 rebounds, exposed the Jazz interior defence without Derrick Favours (hip).
    
Marvin Williams scored 23 points and Alec Burks had 20 off the bench but it wasn't enough to keep the Jazz from their third straight loss, their worst span since a four-game skid from Dec. 4-9.
