Raiders take down 49ers 71-63 in Battle of the Bay charity basketball game

Friday night at California High School, the Raiders did what they hope to do at O.co during the football season -- beat the 49ers. This time it was in a charity basketball game in which they handled the 49ers squad 71-63.

The rosters were as follows:

Raiders -- Denarius Moore, Brice Butler, Greg Little, Andre Holmes, Latavius Murray, Sio Moore, Tyvon Branch, Taiwan Jones, Chimdi Chekwa, and D.J. Hayden (DNP ankle injury).

49ers -- Perrish Cox, Kasim Osgood, Brandon Lloyd, Chuck Jacobs, Aldon Smith, Ian Williams (DNP foot injury), and Quinton Patton (DNP leg injury).

The Raiders led pretty much wire to wire. They had a 42-32 lead at halftime thanks in large part to Latavius Murray's 8 points, according to CSN's Fallon Smith. Late in the game they built that lead to 63-46 on a three-pointer from Tyvon Branch. Brice Butler showed off his dunking skills as well.

Here is some video taken by Cam Inman of the Mercury News:

The game ended on Aldon Smith's uncontested dunk in the final seconds.

Then the Raiders posed with their trophy after the game:

The Good news from a Raiders football perspective is after sitting out injured in the second OTA, Latavius Murray is apparently healthy. The bad news is D.J. Hayden was still in his walking boot with what Dennis Allen said was caused by rolling his ankle. It's a long time until games are played but it's never good to miss practice opportunities in the off-season.

By far the best news of all, though, is there were no incidents of fan violence reported. It could be a good sign and perhaps a move toward these two teams meeting up in the preseason again. The two teams used to be a regular preseason match-up but they haven't played each other since 2011 after several violent incidents at a preseason meeting at Candlestick.

All proceeds for the game go to help various Bay Area charities.
