Lowry, DeRozen lift Raptors past Spurs

San Antonio guard Tony Parker shoots over Raptors guard Kyle Lowry during the first half of Toronto's 86-83 victory at home Friday night

The Spurs are 11-15 away from home. The Toronto Raptors have been one of the best home teams in the league.

San Antonio guard Manu Ginobili missed his second straight game because of a sore right thigh.

In Detroit, Bradley Beal and Kelly Oubre had 26 points apiece, and the Washington Wizards scored 45 in the third quarter before holding off the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Aldridge would lead the Spurs in scoring again tonight.

Brooklyn snapped a five-game losing run at their home arena, the Barclays Center, and a seven-game home losing streak to the Heat.

Caris LeVert and Joe Harris each added 12 points for the Nets.

Toronto kept that run going after the intermission, scoring the first six points of the half to extend the lead to 13. Mills then capped his big night with two free throws for a 97-89 lead with 29 seconds left.

The game marked Zach Randolph's first game in Memphis since spending eight years as a key player in the franchise. The power forward received a standing ovation when he was introduced with the starting lineups. The game featured both teams shooting a combined 14-of-46 from three-point range and below 37-percent from the field. De'Aaron Fox led the Kings with 16 points and six assists.

In the day's late games, Denver plays Phoenix, the LA Lakers meet IN and Utah face the New York Knicks. While the Spurs made them work for it, the Raptors were able to hold on for an 86-83 win, their first over the Spurs since 2015. Even for a team missing several of its best shot creators that is a shockingly low number. He managed to put up 17 points, albeit on 6-25 shooting.


Pau Gasol would also contribute 15 points.

Three other Lakers scored in double figures besides Clarkson.

In Denver, Devin Booker scored 30 points and T.J. Warren had 25 to lead Phoenix past the Nuggets.

The Pacers had won five of seven.

In Salt Lake City, Tim Hardaway Jr. poured in 31 points, including 6-for-7 from 3-point range, and NY rallied to beat the hosts.

3 percent and outlasted the Spurs despite being outrebounded 55-50. He missed all three of his three point attempts and has now failed to convert from long distance in three consecutive games.

Courtney Lee's 13-point third quarter helped the Knicks rebound from a 10-point deficit to take an 85-78 lead into the fourth. He would score 12 of his 15 points in the quarter. He was second on the team with more than 16 points per game, and will join Rudy Gay on the injured list.
