DeMar DeRozan has scored at least 30 points in nine of the 11 games he’s played in this season.

The Golden State Warriors weren’t able to shut him down on Wednesday night when he scored 34 points on 18 shots. But they did get 35 from the reigning MVP, Stephen Curry, and another 30 from Kevin Durant.

As a result, the Dubs beat the Toronto Raptors, 127-121.

The Warriors were able to jump out to a big lead on the strength of a second quarter in which they outscored their foes, 32-15. Durant and Curry each scored 10 in the period as the Raps could manage just 5-for-24 shooting.

“Second quarter was great, it was one of the best quarters we’ve played,” Steve Kerr told reporters after the game. “It was probably the only quarter we played tonight the way we want to play.”

Golden State will pick up its four-game road trip on Friday, when they play against the Boston Celtics.
