OG Anunoby scored 22 points to help the Toronto Raptors defeat the Denver Nuggets, 85-77, in Las Vegas Summer League at Cox Pavillion on Wednesday evening.
One quarter was all it took to swing the game, as the Raptors turned a deficit around thanks to a blistering fourth quarter run. After trailing by as much as 12 late in the third, Toronto came back strong, establishing as much as a 17-point lead midway through the fourth quarter. Strong three-point shooting helped bolster the Toronto’s offense, as the Raptors went 12-of-28 from beyond the arc.
Anunoby was the Raptors’ top scorer, shooting 9-of-17 and knocking down two three-pointers. Giddy Potts added 14 points off the Toronto bench. Potts was one of three double-digit scorers for the Raptors’ second unit.
Monte Morris led Denver with 21 points. The sophomore guard shot 7-of-12 and dished out seven assists. Malik Beasley added another 19 points, but it took him 23 field goal attempts to do so.
