TORONTO (AP) — Greivis Vasquez had 15 points, Lucas Nogueira scored six straight points in the final 2 minutes as the Toronto Raptors held off Israel’s Maccabi Haifa 92-85 on Wednesday for their sixth victory in seven preseason games.
Kyle Lowry and Terrence Ross each had 11 points for the Raptors, whose sole exhibition defeat was a 113-106 loss at Sacramento on Oct. 7. James Johnson scored 10 points and Nogueira had eight in his preseason debut after sitting out the previous six games because of a sore left hamstring.
