TORONTO (AP) — Rudy Gay wowed a sellout crowd by scoring 20 points in his Toronto debut, leading the Raptors to a 98-73 rout of the short-handed Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.
Amir Johnson had 19 points and matched his career high with 16 rebounds for the Raptors. DeMar DeRozan also scored 19 as Toronto welcomed Gay with a winning effort two days after he was acquired from the Memphis Grizzlies in a three-team trade that also included Detroit.
John Lucas scored 17 and Aaron Gray had seven points and 12 rebounds for the Raptors, who handed the Clippers their fourth straight loss in Toronto. Los Angeles has dropped five of its past eight overall.
