TORONTO (AP) — Lamond Murray scored 14 points to lead the Toronto Raptors over the Washington Wizards 76-71 in an exhibition game last night at Air Canada Centre.

Murray is returning after missing all of last season with a torn ligament in his right foot. Rookie Chris Bosh added 12 points and eight rebounds for the Raptors, who played the lowest scoring preseason game in their history.

First-year Toronto coach Kevin O’Neill has posted many signs in the Raptors’ locker room, including one that says ‘The Raptors play defense before offense.’

Kwame Brown had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Wizards, who shot 36 percent compared to 38 percent for Toronto.

Toronto’s Vince Carter was 4-for-15 from the field for nine points, while Washington’s Jerry Stackhouse was 1-for-9 and scored five points.

Juan Dixon added 14 points for the Wizards.

Bosh, the fourth overall pick in the draft, went 5-for-7 from the field and committed four turnovers.
