Fred VanVleet records first NBA points in Raptors victory

Posted:
TORONTO (WREX) -

Rockford native Fred VanVleet was named the first Rockford Sports Tourism Ambassador by the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and followed that honor on Friday with his first points as an NBA player.

The Toronto Raptors defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, 113-80 at the Air Canada Centre - VanVleet played four minutes and scored his first basket with the Raptors, and added a steal.

VanVleet made a strong impression during his NBA D-League assignment, and has received playing time with the Raptors following his minor league stint. The Raptors have won five in a row while in the midst of a six-game homestand, and return to action Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks.
