SACRAMENTO, Calif. Kansas City Royals Jersey . -- Rudy Gay said he didnt harbour a sense of revenge Wednesday night facing his former team -- the Toronto Raptors-- for the first time since a December trade. His numbers said it all. DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and 10 rebounds, Gay added 24 points and 10 rebounds, and the Kings held off the Raptors in the fourth quarter for a 109-101 victory. The Dec. 9 trade brought Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to Sacramento in exchange for Patterson, John Salmons, Greivis Vasquez and Chuck Hayes. The trade has worked well for both teams. Since the shake-up, the Raptors have compiled an 18-11 record and own the third best overall record in the Eastern Conference. They had an 8-12 mark before the deal. Gay has thrived in his role as a key figure offensively. The versatile forward has averaged 20.7 points and shot 53 per cent in his first 25 games with the Kings. Gay wasnt nearly as effective with the Raptors, shooting just under 39 per cent in his second season in Toronto. "It was great to see Rudy have such a successful game tonight," said Gray, who didnt play. "No matter what the scenario, its really important when you go against your ex-team. You always want to show them what theyre missing. I think Rudy did that." Toronto coach Dwane Casey wished his team was a little more focused on effort rather than the socializing that took place between the two teams. "I just thought our whole disposition was off. Were out there hugging and giving out fives and all that," Casey said. "Well, this is a business. I didnt think our disposition at the beginning of the game was in fighting mode or hungry mode. We havent done anything, Ill keep repeating this, we havent done anything in this league yet." The Kings led by 20 points going into the final quarter, when Toronto got going offensively and cut the lead to five points with under a minute to play. But the Kings converted six consecutive free throws in the final minute to seal their second straight victory after losing seven straight. "I think we kept our composure, were very poised down the stretch, and came out with a good home victory," Cousins said. Kyle Lowry had 21 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Raptors, who had won four of their last five. Demar DeRozan scored 18 points, Patrick Patterson 14 and Steve Novak 12, all in the fourth quarter. DeRozan, who entered the game averaging 22 points, shot 5 of 17. He added six rebounds and four assists. Novak played only 34 seconds through three quarters, but in the fourth he hit three three-pointers, helping the Raptors outscore the Kings 29-17. "The game was bizarre; we made it interesting," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "Im glad they didnt play Steve Novak more or it would have been a long night." Isaiah Thomas added 23 points for the Kings and guard Marcus Thornton had 12, all in the first half. Thornton hit the floor hard at the offensive end late in the second quarter and didnt return. He bruised hip and knee in the fall, but X-rays were negative. He may get an MRI on Thursday. New NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who took over for David Stern on Saturday as the leagues fifth commissioner, attended the game. He drew a standing ovation when he was introduced to the sellout crowd Before the game, Silver toured Sacramentos planned downtown arena and sat with the Kings new ownership group during a portion of the game. NOTES: The Kings played without reserve forward Derrick Williams, who was out with a strained right foot. ... Despite shooting 37.5 per cent in the first quarter, Sacramento still led 30-23. ... Lowry was called for a technical midway through the second quarter. ... Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA star, sat courtside with William Bell, the mayor of Birmingham, Ala.

Race 2 in the Honda Indy Toronto was scheduled for 65 laps but intermittent rain and numerous crashes and spins at this 1.75-mile, 11-turn temporary street course made this a timed event of 80 minutes. It concluded after 56 laps. Conway, who drove the No. 20 car for Ed Carpenter Racing in the Toronto weekend doubleheader, was one of five drivers who opted not to pit during a caution on lap 46. Justin Wilson stayed on the track and led the way for the restart on 49. On the following lap, with 7 minutes, 30 seconds to go, Conway overtook Wilson for the lead. A crash involving five drivers in turn 3 on lap 51 forced the sixth and final caution. IndyCar officials displayed the red flag and stopped the race and clock with 4 minutes, 32 seconds left to ensure the event would resume under green. It was really difficult conditions in the wet, Conway said. We were kind of struggling out there for a bit, but I knew as soon as I could see part of a dry line that it was time to come in [for a pit stop]. From there, we just took off and controlled the race. I was a bit nervous with the red flag there, knowing Justin was behind me. It was a lot of fun out there. Conway easily pulled away from the field after the last restart with two-and- a-half minutes remaining. He then beat Kanaan to the finish line by 3.5418 seconds. The tire temperatures came in really fast, and thats what you need in those types of conditions, so I could just control it and not have to push too hard and enjoy those last few laps, Conway said. Conway earned his second win this season and the fourth of his IndyCar career. His first victory in 2014 came on the streets of Long Beach, Calif. in April. Conway drives the No. 20 in all road/street course races this year, while team owner Ed Carpenter is behind the wheel for the oval events. Carpenter won in June at Texas. This one is all Mike. He did a great job, Carpenter said. A big part of the reason why we brought Mike in [this season to run road/street courses] was just to try to be stronger all the time. Earlier in the day, Sebastien Bourdais won the first race in Toronto. It had been scheduled for Saturday but persistent rain forced postponement until the following day. Bourdais started on the pole and led 58 of 65 laps. Lorenzo Cain Royals Jersey. He claimed his first victory in an open-wheel race since November 2007 in Mexico City. Helio Castroneves finished second in race 1 and held a 28-point lead over Will Power, his teammate at Team Penske. Following his ninth-place run in the first event, Power finished third in race 2 and trimmed Castroneves advantage to 13 points. A good day and a typical IndyCar race, Power said. It throws everything at you, but you just have to survive. And thats what we did. Castroneves started on the pole and led the most laps in the second race with 32, but he sustained wing damage on the last lap and dropped in the field to finish 12th. Kanaans second-place run marked his third straight podium. He finished third in race 1 as well as third in last weekends event at Iowa. Kanaan, driving for Chip Ganassi Racing this season, spun out and stalled on course during the opening lap. He fell to the tail end of the field but patiently made his way back. Its been a great weekend, Kanaan said. I made a really bad mistake. I got too excited at the start and got sideways. I made a mistake, and I had to catch up. We made it up, and the team did a great job during my stops. It was a hell of a race, a good weekend with third and second. Were getting closer and closer [to a first win of the season]. Charlie Kimball finished fourth, followed by Takuma Sato, rookie Jack Hawksworth, Scott Dixon, the three-time and defending series champion, and Marco Andretti. Bourdais placed ninth, and Wilson ended up in the 10th spot. Juan Pablo Montoya and rookie Mikhail Aleshin were involved in a serious crash on lap 12, forcing the second caution. Moments after it started raining here, Montoya lost control and slid into the tire barrier. Seconds later, Aleshin plowed right into the back of Montoya. James Hinchcliffe was involved in the accident as well. Montoyas car went on top of Aleshins vehicle. Neither driver was injured during the incident. The rain started very fast and sudden, and I realized it when I started to brake in turn 8, and then I smacked the other car, Aleshin said. I ended up under the car, so that was not such a great feeling at all. The most important thing is that everything is fine. Im not hurt. The doubleheader in Toronto were the 13th and 14th events on the IndyCar schedule this season. Just four races remain -- Mid-Ohio (Aug. 3), Milwaukee (Aug. 17), Sonoma (Aug. 24) and Fontana (Aug. 30).
