In their second Summer League game, the Toronto Raptors fell to the Golden State Warriors 90-84.

Golden State’s first round pick Jonathan Kuminga was the leader for the Warriors with 18 points and four rebounds.

Kuminga opened up the scoring in the first quarter but it was Toronto that ended up on top 19-17 by the end of the frame.

The Warriors answered in a big way in the following quarter with 27 points, including a nine points unanswered near the mid-way point of the frame. The Raptors were only able to muster up 16 points in the quarter.

By the half, Golden State was leading 44-35.

In the third, the teams were more evenly matched with the Warriors taking the slight edge, owning the frame with 22 points compared to Toronto’s 21. Golden State led 66-56 with one quarter remaining.
