Recap

Andrea Bargnani scored a game-high 30 points, including a key 3-pointer in the final minute, and the Toronto Raptors held on to beat the Sacramento Kings 118-112 Sunday at Air Canada Centre.

Bargnani hit 12 of 19 shots from the field, none bigger than his 3-pointer after the Kings had cut it to 110-109, and grabbed eight rebounds. DeMar DeRozan added 28 points for the Raptors, who won for just the second time in their last eight home games.

Rookie DeMarcus Cousins and center Jason Thompson had double-doubles for the Kings. Cousins finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds despite being saddled with foul trouble for most of the game, and Thompson had 19 points and 11 boards. Beno Udrih added 25 points, and Carl Landry had 22 for Sacramento.

The Kings (8-26) played without star guard Tyreke Evans, who sat out with an ankle injury suffered in Friday's win against Denver.

The Raptors (13-24) led by as many as seven in the third quarter before Sacramento rallied to take the lead, but Leandro Barbosa's 3-pointer with 6:43 left in the game gave Toronto the lead for good.

Sacramento has lost seven straight at Air Canada Centre and nine straight road games overall.
