TORONTO (AP) - DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points, Kyle Lowry had 13 and the Toronto Raptors beat Golden State 104-98 on Sunday, their first victory in eight tries against Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

Greivis Vasquez and Patrick Patterson each added 12 points and Jonas Valanciuas had 10 for the Raptors, who had lost 11 of their previous 13 meetings with the Warriors.

Toronto's only previous victory over Golden State since Curry was drafted was an 83-75 home win on March 4, 2012, a victory that came while the guard was sidelined by a strained tendon in his foot.

Curry scored 34 points and David Lee had 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Warriors lost for just the second time in their past seven games.

Klay Thompson scored 12 points and Harrison Barnes had 11 for the Warriors, who played without Jermaine O'Neal. The veteran big man was unable to travel to Toronto because of a misplaced passport, and will rejoin the team for Tuesday's game at Indiana.

Landry Fields started for Toronto in place of guard Terrence Ross, who sat out with a sprained left ankle. Ross left in the second quarter of Thursday's triple-overtime defeat to Washington.

Back-to-back baskets by Barnes and Draymond Green gave the Warriors an 84-78 lead with 9:30 remaining, but Toronto took the lead with a 14-2 run over the next 3 1/2 minutes, including 3-pointers from DeRozan and Patterson.

DeRozan scored seven points during the surge, and a running dunk by Patterson caused Golden State to call timeout trailing 92-86 midway through the final quarter.

Golden State's Andrew Bogut briefly quieted the crowd of 18,658 with a dunk off a pretty feed from Lee, but Patterson answered with a corner 3.

After a jump shot by Andre Iguodala, Curry scored his first points of the fourth on a layup. DeRozan answered with a layup at the other end, but Thompson hit a 3 with 3:35 left to bring the Warriors within 97-95.

It stayed that way until a dunk by Amir Johnson a minute later. Curry turned the ball over on the next possession, leading to a jump shot for Toronto's John Salmons, putting the Raptors up 101-95 with 1:55 remaining.

Curry hit one more 3, but Johnson sealed victory for Toronto by making one of two from the line.

Curry and Lee each had 10 points as the Warriors led 28-25 after one quarter.

Vasquez and DeRozan both scored 10 points in the second and Toronto limited Curry and Lee to a combined seven points to lead 55-50 at halftime.

Curry scored 14 points in the third, shooting 5 of 8 as Golden State took a 78-75 edge into the final quarter.

NOTES: DeRozan went 11 for 12 at the free throw line. ... Bogut finished with 10 rebounds. ... Golden State overcame a 27-point deficit to beat Toronto 112-103 in their previous meeting, Dec. 3, 2013. ... Toronto Maple Leafs player Joffrey Lupul and former Olympic 100m champion Donovan Bailey attended the game. ... Toronto's next game is Friday, March 7 at home to Sacramento.
