Lowry's triple-double helps Raptors rout Knicks 122-95
NEW YORK (AP) Kyle Lowry had 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for his first triple-double of the season, DeMar DeRozan also scored 22 while becoming the winningest player in Raptors history, and Toronto beat the New York Knicks 122-95 on Monday night.
Jonas Valanciunas added 20 points for the Raptors, who won so easily that Knicks interim coach Kurt Rambis changed his mind in the final minutes of the blowout and inserted Jimmer Fredette.
Just signed to a 10-day contract, the former college player of the year made a 3-pointer on his lone shot attempt - about the only thing Knicks fans had to cheer during the team's 12th loss in 14 games.
DeRozan passed Chris Bosh and Morris Peterson with his 233rd win in six-plus years wearing a Raptors uniform. DeRozan and fellow All-Star Lowry outclassed the Knicks' backcourt of Jose Calderon and Arron Afflalo, which combined for 3-of-13 shooting.
