“A little nervous at first but after I got down the court a couple of times the jitters wore off,” Davis said.

Raptors coach Jay Triano said he was pleased with Davis’ effort.

“He’s got that look about him where it doesn’t look like he’s giving you (much), but then all of a sudden he’s at the rim blocking shots,” Triano said.

The Raptors led 34-25 after 12 minutes, then opened the second with a 8-2 run, forcing Saunders to call timeout with 10:19 left in the half.

Toronto kept pulling away and kept up its hot shooting, too. After a 15-for-24 showing in the first quarter, the Raptors went 17 for 24 in the second, and led 72-52 at the half.

DeRozan scored eight points in the third as Toronto took a 101-81 lead into the final quarter.

NOTES: Toronto’s previous best was 110 points in a Nov. 12 victory at Orlando. The franchise high is 131 points, set last April 14 in a victory over the New York Knicks. … Washington’s Al Thornton returned after missing three games with a sore left ankle. … Wizards center Hilton Armstrong sat out the game while serving a one-game suspension. Armstrong was called for a flagrant foul and ejected after shoving Joel Anthony in the third quarter of Monday’s 105-94 loss at Miami. … Toronto’s Reggie Evans had surgery to repair a broken right foot and is expected to miss eight weeks. Amir Johnson made his second start of the season in Evans’ place. … Peja Stojakovic (left knee) missed his second straight game for the Raptors.
