Recap: Toronto vs. Sacramento

Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - DeMar DeRozan netted 21 points in 21 minutes as the Toronto Raptors opened up the preseason with a 99-94 win over the Sacramento Kings.

Louis Williams carried Toronto down the stretch, scoring 11 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, and Tyler Hansbrough scored 11 off the bench. The Raptors trailed by seven heading into the final period but rallied in front of a raucous Vancouver crowd to earn the victory.

DeMarcus Cousins had 13 points for the Kings, who committed 29 turnovers as a team. Ramon Sessions scored 14 off the bench and lottery pick Nik Stauskas hit a pair of 3-pointers en route to 12 points in his debut.

Cousins and DeRozan were both members of Team USA's gold medal winning team from last month's FIBA World Championship.

Hansbrough gave the Raptors the lead with a pair of free throws with 1:40 remaining in the contest. Williams then came up with a steal and converted a transition layup plus a foul, and Hansbrough put the game away with a driving layup on a nifty pass from Greivis Vasquez.
