Fox has 27 points and 10 assists, Kings beat Raptors 124-123

TORONTO (AP) — De’Aaron Fox had 27 points and 10 assists, Damontas Sabonis added 21 points and 20 rebounds and the Sacramento Kings held on to beat the Toronto Raptors 124-123 on Wednesday night.

Malik Monk scored 24 points and Terence Davis had 19 against his former team as the Kings overcame a 16-point second-quarter deficit to win for the second time in their past 11 games north of the border.

Fred VanVleet scored a season-high 39 points for Toronto, but missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with four seconds to go.

Scottie Barnes had 27 points and 10 assists and Pascal Siakam scored 19 points for the Raptors. They dropped to 10-4 at home and have lost three straight for the first time this season. The Raptors were swept at Orlando over the weekend.

Harrison Barnes scored 12 points and Keegan Murray had 10 as all five Sacramento starters reached double figures.

Kings coach Mike Brown was ejected after picking up two technicals with 9:09 left in the third quarter. Brown left the bench and ran onto the court to argue with the officials after guard Fox was called for a technical foul.

Toronto shot 6 for 21 from 3-point range, matching its fewest made 3-pointers of the season.

Raptors forward O.G. Anunoby missed his second straight game because of a sore left hip.

Barnes made two free throws to cut it to 122-119 with 21 seconds left in the fourth quarter, and Monk split a pair at the other end.

VanVleet drove for a layup with seven seconds to play, and the Kings called timeout. Fox was fouled on the inbounds play and missed the first but made the second, putting Sacramento up 124-121.

After a timeout, VanVleet got open but missed a 3-pointer, leading to a layup for Siakam on Toronto’s final possession.

VanVleet scored 13 points in the first and the Raptors led 31-23 after one. Toronto scored the first eight points of the second, extending its lead to 39-23. Fox had 12 points in the second as the Kings rallied, cutting it to 62-59 at the half.

VanVleet scored nine of his 16 third-quarter points at the free throw line, including five straight when Brown was ejected. Toronto took a 94-88 lead to the fourth.
