NBA: Gay's 23 points helps Kings snap a four-game losing skid


11-21-2016 15:53 BJT

Demar DeRozan was looking to continue his stellar year. Many thought that the Toronto Raptors overpaid to keep him in the off-season, handing the all-star a five-year 139-million dollar deal -- the richest in franchise history. It seems money well spent, as the shooting guard is leading the league in scoring -- pouring in 33-points a game. But, DeRozan would have an off night as Toronto rolled into Sacramento -- as the Kings looked to snap a four-game losing skid. 

Early on Darren Collison is able to get into the lane, and drop to Rudy Gay, who soards high and gets the runner -- and the foul, to put his team in front.

The Dinos would work a two-man game themselves, as Kyle Lowry finds Jonas Valunciunas for the cram to give his side the lead.

DeRozan, would struggle and was held to a season-low 12 points and loses his shoe on this possession. You get a better look on the replay, Rudy Gay tosses the lost footwear into the stands.

Off to the third and the Drakes are able to reclaim the lead thanks to the DeMarre Carroll triple.

But DeMarcus Cousins puts the hosts back in front. 19 for Boogie.

Off to the fourth, and team Jurassic stays ahead, Kyle Lowry getting to the rim. He had a game-high 25.

Now with about 3 minutes to go, tied at 97 -- Darren Collison uses the pick, turns the corner and gets to the cup -- for the And1.

The Raps looking to tie things, but turn it over, and team Royalty go the other way -- and Rudy Gay, punishes the ring. He had 23 against his old team, and it is a 5-point game.

2.4 seconds left in the game, Toronto inbounds to Terrence Ross, who heaves a 33-footer, that beats the clock, and send it to overtime.

But the refs review the play, and the ball was tipped on the inbounds, meaning they did not start the clock on time, so the basket does not count, claiming time had expired to give Sacramento a 102-99 win. Raps coach Dwayne Casey livid.

In other action, Jimmy Butler erupted for 40 points in Chicago's win over the Lakers. Carmelo Anthony scored a season-high 31 as New York handed Atlanta their second straight loss. Portland had an easy time with Brooklyn. Jeff Teague helped Indy outlast OKC in overtime, the Thunder falling despite another triple-double from Russell Westbrook, who managed 31 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds in the loss. Uth topped Denver.
