Raptors lose close one in Summer League Opener

Last night, the Raptors played their first summer league game against the LA Lakers. The Raptors lost a nail- biter, 85-84.

The league is held in Las Vegas, and runs from July 10th-19th. This is the first opporunity for Raptors fans to see rookie DeMar DeRozan in action. He scored 10 points on 5-12 shooting, as well as collected 5 rebounds. Here's the recap:



Quincy Douby was the Raptors high scorer with 16 points. Ironically, Douby was supposed to be apart of the 4 way sign and trade deal, but ended up staying in Toronto at the last minute. Patrick O'Bryant had a nice game as well, collecting 15 points and 5 rebounds.

Some other guys contributed nicely, as well. Smush Parker, former Laker, put up 9 points, and Brent Pentway added 7. I don't see either of these players making the team, however.

The Raptors next game is today at 4 PM ET against the
Pistons.
