Raptors Audio: Casey On Game Day From Philly

The Toronto Raptors (21-20) needed a huge performance from DeMar DeRozan to rescue them from a huge deficit in their last game.

DeRozan might be poised for another career night against the Philadelphia 76ers (14-28) given what he’s done so far in the season series.

He’ll try to help Toronto win a third straight meeting with the 76ers on Friday night when the Raptors visit Philadelphia (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050).
