Raptors edge Pistons, 82-75

A balanced scoring attack that saw 12 different Detroit players score wasn't enough to defeat the Toronto Raptors as the Pistons fell, 82-75, on the road at the Air Canada Center on Friday.

Johnny Flynn made a three-pointer with 1:24 left in the fourth quarter to cut the Raptors' six-point lead to 74-71. However, that was as close as the Pistons would get as Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas answered with a running hook shot on the ensuing possession to extend the Raptors' lead back up to 76-71.

The Raptors clinched the win at the free throw line the rest of the way, defeating the Pistons 82-75.

Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 14 points. Rookie Viacheslav Kravtsov was the only other Pistons player in double figures with 10 points on 3-of-3 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from the free throw line.

Andre Drummond played just under six minutes, finishing with two points, one steal and one block in the game. Drummond debuted against the Raptors on Wednesday with 12 points, seven rebounds on 6-of-8 shooting from the field in 22 minutes.
