Patrick McCaw explodes for 19 of his 28 points in the first half but the Warriors come up short in the second round of tournament play in the 2016 NBA Summer League.

Coach Jarron Collins jokingly asked after the game if he could get fined for criticizing the referees in Summer League. Collins was most likely referring to the huge disparity in free throws, as the Raptors out shot the Warriors 40 to 12 from the charity stripe en route to a six point victory.

Second round draft pick Patrick McCaw put his range on display by connecting on four of his five made three-pointers in the first half. McCaw, who played his college ball at UNLV, admitted that it was actually the first time he had ever shot inside the smaller Cox Pavilion. He finished with a game high 28 points and three steals.

After a tightly contested first half the Warriors turned up the defensive pressure by forcing the Raptors into seven third quarter turnovers. However the Dubs could not overcome the massive 21 point discrepancy from the free throw line.

Royce Oneale turned in a solid all around effort, snatching up 14 rebounds and dishing out five assists. Unfortunately for Oneale he shot just 2-for-12 from the field, including 1-for-8 from three point range. But it wasn't just Oneale who struggled from deep, as everyone not named McCaw shot a combined 1-for-18 from deep.

"Onion" Kuzmic was the only other player for the Warriors who reached double figures, scoring 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter. He also blocked one shot, recorded two steals and grabbed nine rebounds.

The Warriors will face off against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday at 7 PM at Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas.
