ATLANTA, April 15 (UPI) --
DeMar DeRozan netted 23 points Sunday and the Toronto Raptors delayed Atlanta's clinching of a playoff berth with a 102-86 win over the Hawks.
The Raptors also got double-figure scoring performances from Alan Anderson (16 points), James Johnson (15), Ed Davis, Ben Uzoh and Justin Dentmon (10 each) in the victory.
Toronto won its second straight following a four-game losing streak.
Atlanta could have secured a spot in the postseason with a victory, but instead had their celebration delayed until at least Monday when they will meet in Raptors in Toronto as part of a home-and-home series.
Josh Smith fired in 26 points while Willie Green and Ivan Johnson added 14 apiece for the Hawks.
