Raptors 110, Grizzlies 84
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) _ Antonio Davis scored 14 first-quarter points and the Toronto Raptors coasted to a 110-84 preseason victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies on Monday.
With the sale of the Grizzlies last month to a St. Louis-based owner, this could have been the final Naismith Cup between the two Canadian NBA teams.
Davis, a forward obtained from the Indiana Pacers in a draft-day deal, finished with 19 points.
Vince Carter, last year’s rookie of the year, led Toronto (1-2) with 20 points and Tracy McGrady added 18.
Othella Harrington had 18 points for Vancouver (0-4) and Shareef Adbur-Rahim added 17.
The Raptors were too much for the injury-riddled Grizzlies, who did not dress center Bryant Reeves due to an injured left knee suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Denver Nuggets.
Toronto led 32-17 at the end of the first quarter and 58-33 at the half.
