LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Amir Johnson and DeMar DeRozan teamed up for 58 points Sunday and Toronto spoiled the return of Kobe Bryant with a 106-94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Johnson piled up 32 points with nine rebounds, and DeRozan produced 26 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals as the Raptors led wire-to-wire in snapping a five-game losing streak.

Kyle Lowry scored 21 points, dished off eight assists and grabbed five rebounds for Toronto, which reportedly pulled off a seven-player trade before the game.

ESPN reported the Raptors sent Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes.

Bryant, making his first appearance of the season for the Lakers following an Achilles tendon injury, registered nine points, eight rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes. The 15-time all-star also committed eight turnovers.

Nick Young scored 18 points off the bench to lead Los Angeles, which fell to .500 (10-10) on the season.
