OAKLAND, Calif. — Warriors star Stephen Curry had 22 points and reserve guard Shaun Livingston added 21 as Golden State cruised to a 129-101 exhibition victory over the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night.

Forward Jordan Crawford had 14 points and eight assists in 26 minutes off the bench. Curry connected on 6 of 11 shots from the field and 4 of 8 from 3-point range, including two in a row down the stretch after the Raptors (3-1) had closed to four late in the third quarter.

Klay Thompson had 12 points on 4-of-18 shooting. Golden State committed 10 turnovers. The Cavaliers will also play tonight (8 p.m. EST, TNT), facing the Golden State Warriors.

DeMar DeRozan had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Raptors, and Greivis Vasquez added 20 points.

Warriors rookie forward Kevon Looney had six points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 21 minutes as part of his NBA-ordered action due to the arrest last year on felony rape and other charges. Looney denied the allegations.
