DeRozan scores 21, Raptors beat Kings 99-94 in Vancouver exhibition

October 05, 2014 - 7:00 PM

VANCOUVER - DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 99-94 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night in their preseason opener, as the NBA returned to Vancouver for a day.

Jonas Valanciunas and newcomer Lou Williams, a nine-year veteran acquired by Toronto in June, added 12 points apiece. Terrence Ross and Tyler Hansbrough each finished with 11 points in front of a sellout Rogers Arena crowd of 18,630 that included former Canucks star Trevor Linden and British Columbia premier Christy Clark.

Ramon Sessions led the Kings with 14 points, while DeMarcus Cousins and Darren Collison had 13 points apiece, and Canadian Nik Stauskas had 12 in his NBA debut.

The game capped the Raptors' west coast training camp. There were numerous teal Vancouver Grizzlies jerseys from the city's old team that moved to Memphis in 2001.
