TORONTO (AP) — DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points, Terrence Ross had 17 and the Toronto Raptors routed the winless Philadelphia 76ers 120-88 Sunday night for their sixth victory in seven games.
Lou Williams added 16 against his former team and Kyle Lowry had 14 as the Raptors, who are alone atop the Eastern Conference for the first time in their 20-year history. They were tied for first in November 2004.
Toronto set a season high in points against the 76ers, who were even worse defensively than when they allowed 118 points against Chicago on Friday.
Tony Wroten scored 18 points and Chris Johnson had 16 for the 76ers, who lost for the 70th time in their past 86 regular-season games.
