The Toronto Raptors (41-31) clinched their first playoff berth since 2008 with a 105-103 win over the Boston Celtics (23-49) at the Air Canada Centre on Friday.

The Raptors were led by DeMar DeRozan, who scored all 30 of his points in the second half, including some clutch buckets in the fourth quarter.

Terrence Ross, Grievis Vasquez and Jonas Valanciunas all reached double-figures for the Raptors as well.

The Celtics were almost able to complete a double-digit comeback in the fourth quarter thanks to some late heroics from Jerryd Bayless, who scored a team-high 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting.
