TORONTO - Behind the curtain where DeMar DeRozan sat at the post-game podium answering questions Tuesday night, Kyle Lowry stood holding DeRozan’s almost year-old daughter, Diar, in his arms.

It wasn’t just a moment in time for the Toronto Raptors, with one father handing off to another for support: It was something of a definition of what this surprising NBA team has become.

Being there for each other — no matter what the situation dictates.

“Me and DeMar were talking about it last night,” said Lowry, one of the co-stars of this Raptors show. “The chemistry (here) is unbelievable and I can pick up my phone and call any one of my teammates and have a conversation, serious, jokingly. This is just cool. It’s great to have a group of guys who just really get along.

“We really are like a band of brothers ... I like my teammates. I love my teammates. I’ll tell anybody that first-hand."
