DeRozan scores 14, Raptors beat Pistons 82-75
TORONTO 82, DETROIT 75
TORONTO (AP) -- DeMar DeRozan scored 14 points and Ed Davis had
12 points to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 82-75 preseason
victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas had 11 points and eight
rebounds, and scored on a key possession with less than a minute
to play, in his second NBA game.
Valanciunas, whom the Raptors selected with their No. 5 pick in
the 2011 NBA Draft, is considered a huge piece of the
franchise's future. He put in an energetic 30 minutes, banging
with Detroit's big men under the glass. On one play late in the
first quarter, the rookie did a nice job of driving to the hoop
and drawing a foul for a three-point play.
Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 14 points.
