DeMar DeRozan scored 40 points -- doing that back-to-back for the first time in his career -- and the Raptors clamped down defensively in the final three quarters to beat the Miami Heat 101-84 in the NBA on Thursday night.Toronto has now won 19 games this season after trailing by at least 10 points, more than any team in the NBA.Whiteside seemed a bit limited -- his first two shots were rather gentle dunks, not his usual make-the-backboard-shake variety.DeRozan needed 38 shots to score 42 points against Chicago on Tuesday.DeRozan became the second player in Toronto history to have a season where he scored 32 or more points at least 20 times. He was an 11-year-old when it last happened -- Vince Carter had 28 of those games in 2000-01 .
