TORONTO (AP) -Andrea Bargnani had 17 points and eight rebounds to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 98-64 rout of the Washington Wizards in the final preseason game for both teams Friday night.
Jason Kapono scored 12 points for Toronto, while Juan Dixon and Carlos Delfino finished with 10 apiece.
DeShawn Stevenson had 12 points for the Wizards.
The Raptors led from the outset Friday, making it look easy against a sloppy Wizards squad, and took a 29-point lead into the fourth quarter.
With a collection of bench players for both teams on the court for the final few minutes, the athletic Jamario Moon scored on an alley-oop dunk that brought the crowd to its feet with just under two minutes to play. Luke Jackson sunk a three-pointer the next time down the floor to make it 96-64 for Toronto, and the Raptors cruised to an easy win to finish their exhibition schedule 5-2.
The Wizards dropped to 4-4.
Toronto has looked solid in its past two games, and has plenty of reason to be optimistic about the regular season, which starts Wednesday when the Raptors host the Philadelphia 76ers in their opener.
Toronto shot 49 percent and held Washington to 37 percent shooting. The Raptors outrebounded the Wizards 47-30.
