Raptors Vs Kings Scores: Toronto Raptors Fade In Final 90 Seconds, DeMarcus Cousins Seals Victory For Kings

The Toronto Raptors coach said that his side would be facing a daunting task in the coming days. But his side couldn’t live up to challenges in the first game of their western trip.

The Toronto Raptors coach said that his side would be facing a daunting task in the coming days. But his side couldn’t live up to challenges in the first game of their western trip.

The Raptors conceded the game 107-101 to Sacramento Kings on Sunday night after a keenly fought contest.

“This whole month is a challenge. We talked about it in training camp,” said Raptors coach Dwane Casey.

The Raptors did well in the game but faded in the final minutes to concede despite Kyle Lowry scoring his career-best six three-pointers.

DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 36 points. He also scored the decisive point. Cousins was well assisted by ex-Raptor man Rudy Gay, who finished with 27 points.

In the final two minutes, the Raptors displayed dismal shooting, failing to score from four straight possessions which left them 7-4. The Raptors were ahead as the match went into the last 90 seconds. DeMar DeRozan added 24 to the Toronto’s tally as DeMarre Carroll scored 17. Last week, there was severe turmoil in the Kings’ camp. Cousins blasted coach George Karl.

“He did a great job with Gary Payton and Gary was a handful at a young age and so was Shawn Kemp— he and Gary both,” said Casey, who assisted Karl in Seattle during his first NBA assignment.
