Ok first and foremost, the Rockets beat the Raptors in preseason action 124-112. Bargnani led the Raps with 16 points, Shane Battier had 26 pts for the Rockets (including 8 triples....you read it right, 8 threes)
So who made their return to Toronto tonight? Former Raptor, Pops Mensah-Bonsu. He has a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets and he impressed tonight. Check out the reel (via @CreativeBonsu)
His line? In 23 minutes, 17 pts, 7 boards and 5 blocks
The same guy who impressed Raptors fans last year showed Rockets fans tonight what he's capable of tonight: 110% Hustle.
