The Raptors get off to a slow start in Sacramento, a place where they are historically awful, before erupting for 26 points in the second quarter. We are told a lot of things go right for the Raptors in this game, including for obvious reasons…

Danilo Gallinari’s best game of the preseason lands him on the bench for most of the game, but he plays crucial minutes when Kyle Lowry and OG Anunoby go down with injuries. He scores 13 points over that stretch.
Patty Mills goes from 3-point goat to hero in his starting spot for the Raptors after being a non-factor in a loss to the Bulls earlier in the week. He scores 13 points and is 2-for-4 from beyond the arc.
Wait — who is losing the dunk battle? When Omri Casspi hits a half-court 3 at the end of the third, it seems like maybe their members of the media are just looking to write off their Brooklyn brethren. But none other than OG Anunoby nails a scoop shot with less than a second remaining, securing the win.
DeMar DeRozan finishes strong, and more importantly, early, after a particularly long third quarter that saw the Raptors overcome a 15-point deficit and take a lead.
