TORONTO (Ticker) -- Andrea Bargnani and the Toronto Raptors were firing on all cylinders.

Bargnani scored 19 points as the Raptors posted a 92-82 preseason victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday.

Reserve Juan Dixon scored 17 second-half points and Rasho Nesterovic scored 12 for Toronto, which started fast vs. Chicago and didn't ease up until the fourth quarter.

Bargnani, who connected on 7-of-12 from the floor, had 11 points in the first period when the Raptors outscored the Bulls, 28-19. The second-year player from Italy also drilled three 3-pointers for Toronto, which led by 14 at halftime.
