    Raptors seek elusive road victory at Arco Arena

    Toronto (1-11) at Sacramento (5-7) 10:00 pm EST

    SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors have not won on the road this season. On Friday, the Raptors look for their first win in over eight years at Arco Arena when they visit Mike Bibby and the Sacramento Kings.

    After dropping nine straight games to open the campaign, Toronto finally posted its first win with a 107-94 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday. Since then, the Raptors have lost the first two contests on their four-game West Coast swing.

    Chris Bosh scored 24 points and rookie Charlie Villanueva added 18 off the bench on Wednesday, but Toronto collapsed in the fourth quarter and dropped a 103-100 decision to the Los Angeles Clippers.

    While Bosh has continued his progression as one of the league's top young big men, Villanueva has been a pleasant surprise over the last two weeks. The 6-11 forward has averaged 16 points and nine rebounds over his last seven games.

    The Raptors, who have not won here since March 13, 1997, hope to snap their road skid against a Kings squad which has won three of its last four home contests.

    Sacramento used a 35-point third quarter to top the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday, 114-105.

    Mike Bibby scored 25 points, Brad Miller collected 20, seven rebounds and 10 assists and Bonzi Wells added 23 and six steals for the Kings, who have won nine of their last 11 against the Raptors.
