PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- DeMar DeRozan turned in his third straight big game Wednesday in pacing Toronto to a 108-98 decision over Philadelphia.

DeRozan scored 33 points while making 10-of-19 shots from the field, boosting the Raptors to an 18-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter.

He equaled a career best with 37 points last Friday against Chicago and then scored 29 more against Portland on Sunday. Toronto, however, lost both those contests. Even though the Raptors have only a 5-8 record, it is good enough to lead the Atlantic Division.

Rudy Gay and Terrence Rose both had 17 points for Toronto.

A season-best 28 points and 10 rebounds from Spencer Hawes led Philadelphia. Evan Turner chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds. It was the 76ers' fourth straight loss.
