TORONTO (AP) — Landry Fields scored 15 points, and Kyle Lowry had 14 points and six assists in his Raptors debut to help Toronto beat the Washington Wizards 104-101 in exhibition play Wednesday night.

Amir Johnson added 13 points, Jose Calderon had 12 points and eight assists, and DeMar DeRozan finished with 11 points for the Raptors (3-1).

Trevor Booker had 12 points to top the Wizards (1-4), while Emeka Okafor, Martell Webster, Jan Vesely and Bradley Beal had 11 apiece.

Lowry started after missing the first three games of the exhibition schedule — and a good chunk of Toronto's training camp in Halifax, Nova Scotia — because of a groin injury. The point guard scored Toronto's first points of the game off a steal and a drive in front of a crowd that included Jon Bon Jovi and former Raptors star Tracy Murray.

Toronto's Andrea Bargnani left the game with a left calf contusion in the third quarter.
