Toronto 118, Boston 112 (OT)

TORONTO (AP) -- Chris Bosh had 22 points in three quarters and
Spanish forward Jorge Garbajosa scored six of his 18 points in
overtime to lead the new-look Toronto Raptors to a 118-112 victory
over the Boston Celtics in a preseason game on Wednesday night.

Garbajosa and point guard Jose Calderon, who led Spain to its
first world championship in September, scored 10 of Toronto's 16
points in the extra five minutes.

Toronto used nine new players, including Andrea Bargnani -- the
first European ever taken as the overall No. 1 draft pick. The
native of Italy went 4-for-13 from the field and scored 13 points.

Rookie Rajon Rondo scored 29 points and Paul Pierce had 23 in
three quarters for the Celtics, who won in Cleveland on Tuesday
night.

Rondo, the 21st pick in the draft, sent the game into overtime
with an off-balance 3-pointer as time expired.

But Garbajosa made consecutive 3-pointers in the overtime and
Calderon made two layups to give Toronto a 112-107 lead.

Toronto won despite committing 38 turnovers, eight by point
guard T.J. Ford, who was acquired from Milwaukee in the offseason.

Boston's Wally Szcerbiak (sore knee), Theo Ratliff (sore back)
and Dwayne Jones (sore back) didn't play.
