Raptors 107, Knicks 88

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 19, 2012
Andrea Bargnani scored 20 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the New York Knicks 107-88 on Friday night in a preseason game at the sold-out Bell Centre. Toronto won its third in a row to improve to 4-1 and dealt New York its first loss in three exhibition games. The Raptors outscored New York 30-20 in the third quarter and went up by 12 after Jose Calderon scored on a layup off a turnover 2:27 into the fourth to make it 84-72. Kyle Lowry finished with 17 points for Toronto and Amir Johnson contributed 14. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 24 points followed by Amare Stoudemire's 18. Landry Fields faced New York for the first time since signing a three-year, $18.7-million offer sheet that the Knicks declined to match. New York led 26-20 after the first quarter as Toronto got off to yet another slow start. Stoudemire's dunk gave the Knicks a 38-28 lead in the second, but Lowry hit a 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer to draw the Raptors even at 46. Bargnani was back in the Raptors' starting lineup after he was injured Wednesday night. He bruised his left calf and left in the third quarter of Toronto's 104-101 victory over Washington. Lowry made his second start after missing the Raptors' first three games because of a strained adductor muscle in his left leg. Lithuanian rookie Jonas Valanciunas started for Toronto but took a seat on the bench 3:13 in after drawing a pair of early fouls. He finished with four points and 10 rebounds. Toronto hosts Milwaukee on Monday night. New York faces Boston in Albany, N.Y., on Saturday night.
