    Demar DeRozan gets shoelace tapped around his thumb before Game 5 against Miami

DeMar DeRozan was seen grimacing while Toronto Raptors director of sports science Alex McKechnie tightly tied a shoelace around his injured right thumb prior to Game 5 against the Miami Heat Tuesday.

The logic? By applying tight pressure to a wounded area, swelling can be reduced. It worked for DeRozan, too. He tied his career playoff high with 34 points in Tuesday's 99-91 win, going 11-for-22 from the field. It's only the third time this postseason that DeRozan has shot above 40 percent.
