Making his return to Toronto, Raptors fans showed DeMar DeRozan the love.

It began before the game, as fans saluted the Raptors legend during the San Antonio Spurs’ pre-game intros.

DeRozan wasted no time making an impact in the game, scoring his first basket while being fouled on his way to the hoop two minutes in.

Then, during the first television time out, Raptors fans rose to their feet for a lengthy standing ovation as a tribute video played on the big screen.

The ovation lasted about two minutes, only stopping once play resumed again.

This is DeRozan’s first game in Toronto since last summer’s blockbuster trade that involved Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.
