Gay scores 23 points, Kings beat Raptors 102-99

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Rudy Gay had 23 points and nine rebounds and the Sacramento Kings beat Toronto 102-99 on Sunday night after waiting out a video review to see if the Raptors had forced overtime on Terrence Ross' 3-pointer at the buzzer.
 
Ross grabbed a deflected pass, took two dribbles and made a 33-footer, but the officials ruled time had expired.
 
The Kings snapped a four-game losing streak and beat the Raptors for the second time this season. They held DeMar DeRozan to three second-half points and outscored Toronto 44-36.
 
Kyle Lowry had 25 points and eight assists for the Raptors. Jonas Valanciunas added 23 points and 14 rebounds , DeMarre Carroll had 17 points, DeRozan a season-low 12 points, and Patrick Patterson 11.
 
The NBA's scoring leader, DeRozan, was defended tightly by Gay for much of the game and missed 12 of 15 shots.
 
DeMarcus Cousins had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings, Darrin Collison had 15 points and nine assists and Aaron Afflalo had 14 points. The Kings had dropped eight of 10 games.
