Summer League Game Recap: Raptors 92, Blazers 87

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

In a game that featured 22 lead changes and 12 ties, the Toronto Raptors' Summer League team came away with their first victory in three tries yesterday, outlasting Portland 92-87.

Former BayHawk Quincy Douby continued to impress, leading the team with 20 points off the bench, and scoring efficiently: 7-14 from the field, 2-3 from beyond the arc, 4-6 from the charity stripe. He also led the team with 5 assists, tied for the team lead with 2 steals, and committed just 2 turnovers. The all-around solid effort from Douby could earn him a roster spot come November.

Rookie DeMar DeRozan had a better effort in this game, scoring 15 points on 6-14 shooting. He also recorded his first assist as a Raptor. Perhaps most impressively, he led the team with 6 rebounds.

Brent Petway had an efficient offensive game, going 5-7 from the floor. He also added 4 boards in just under 20 minutes of action.

Roko Ukic had a mixed performance. He scored 12 points on 5-8 shooting, but the Raptors' coaching staff can't be happy with his 5 turnovers to just 3 assists. That's not a favorable ratio, especially for a guard.

Smush Parker, Carl English and Nathan Jawai all received DNPs for the game.
