  • Grades from the Toronto Raptors close loss to DeRozan and the Spurs

In the time it took the Toronto Raptors to finishing hoisting the Larry O'Brien Trophy on the floor of Oracle Arena, DeMar DeRozan had sent each one a congratulatory text.

DeRozan put the ball in his right hand and pulled it back as Raptors defender Chris Boucher jumped at the same time, attempting to block the shot.

DeRozan, who has scored 20 points in 11 straight games, sank two free throws with nine seconds remaining for what proved to be the game-winning points after Marco Belinelli's three-pointer had given the Spurs the lead.

"He's been huge", White said of DeRozan. "Create, score, do nearly everything for us". He arrived on the heels of one of the best stretches of his career, scoring 20-plus points in 10 consecutive games - the first Spurs player in history to do so.

The Spurs went on a 17-0 run to lead by three points with 5min 31sec to play.

Asked for his thoughts on Lowry's play this season, DeRozan said: "He's been bad".

The Raptors official Twitter account confirmed Siakam's return.

Celebrated director Spike Lee was announced as Jury President of upcoming Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday morning. Lee, 62, said he was "shocked, happy, surprised and proud all at the same time" to make history.

After a timeout from Toronto, Siakam missed a shot that would have drawn the game San Antonio's Lonnie Walker IV grabbed the rebound, Lowry stained DeRozan, and the former Raptors star increased the lead to four points by making a couple out of line. But DeRozan's dunk helped the Spurs rally from an 18-point third-quarter deficit to stun the Raptors in a 105-104 win that saw them outscore the home team by 14 points in the fourth quarter. Siakam, who'd been sidelined with a groin injury, had 15 points and quickly showed the Raptors what they'd been missing when he scored the game's first basket 47 seconds in when he posted up DeRozan.

Spurs: Playing in Toronto as a visitor for only the second time, DeRozan received loud applause when he was introduced before the game.

"Obviously happy to be back", said Siakam. And I'm just a fan of basketball. Lowry got up and gave his son a kiss on the cheek, then returned to the court.

Spurs: San Antonio is 6-12.

With Siakam cooled off, Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, and Powell did the best they could ahead.
