GAME RECAP

Doug Christie poured in a season-high 31 points, including a three-point play in overtime that began a decisive run and helped lift the Toronto Raptors to a 113-107 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Toronto, which never led in regulation, fell behind early in the extra session as Terry Porter nailed a three-pointer and Cherokee Parks hit a jumper to make it 105-100.

But Christie answered with his three-point play, Oliver Miller had a layup, Walt Williams made a three-pointer and Marcus Camby added a follow layup with 34 seconds to play to give the Raptors a 110-105 advantage.

Stephon Marbury ended the run with two foul shots six seconds later before Damon Stoudamire, playing in his second game since trade rumors began to swirl, milked the clock and hit a tough hanging jumper with 6.2 seconds remaining to extend the lead to 112-107.

Stoudamire finished with 21 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, while Miller had 18 points, 12 boards and seven assists for Toronto, which has captured three of its last four at home but won for just the fourth time in 13 contests overall. The Raptors erased an 18-point fourth-quarter deficit.

"We just went out there and played as a team. We still have got pride," said Christie, who had just six points at halftime. "We just have to stay together, whether it's good or not so good. When you're open, you have to shoot the ball. That's all I was trying to do in the first half and the second half."

Tom Gugliotta totaled 25 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists and Marbury had 18 points and nine assists for Minnesota, which had a franchise-best seven-game winning streak halted. The Timberwolves also had a three-game road winning streak come to an end and fell to 0-3 all-time at SkyDome.

The Raptors posted a season-high in points and improved to 4-8 all-time in overtime games. They are 3-2 in their brief life against the Timberwolves, with the second and final meeting of the season scheduled for March 6th in Minnesota.

Gugliotta netted 10 points and Parks eight as Minnesota shot just under 70 percent (16-of-23) from the field in the first quarter en route to a 38-23 lead. The Wolves held a 62-50 halftime cushion and led 83-71 entering the fourth quarter.

Minnesota scored the first six points of the period, capped by Porter's layup with 10:08 to go that extended the margin to 89-71. But Christie scored 11 points in a 23-5 spurt, including a dunk and three-pointer that capped the run and evened the score at 94-94 with 1:59 left.

"We had an opportunity to put them away and we didn't," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "We were not mentally sharp coming off timeouts and we stopped pushing the ball up floor. You've got to give them credit, they didn't fold."

Marbury responded with a bank shot with 1:51 remaining and a baseline jumper 35 seconds later to give Minnesota a 98-94 advantage. Stoudamire converted two free throws with 65 seconds left, but Gugliotta nailed a jumper 18 seconds later as the Timberwolves maintained a four-point edge.

Stoudamire made a driving layup with 36 seconds to go and, after Porter missed a lay-in, he fed Christie for a pretty alley-oop dunk that tied the game at 100-100 with 13.5 seconds remaining. Marbury missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

"The guys are playing pretty good basketball," said Raptors coach Darrell Walker. "They're playing pretty hard. I didn't think we had any life in the first half, but we came back to life to win the game. I didn't think we were ever that out of it, we just had to make a couple of shots. We need to continue to focus on playing basketball."

Williams, who was activated from the injured list prior to the game, contributed 12 points while Carlos Rogers had 10. Camby grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked four shots for Toronto.

"It was a great win for the team," said Stoudamire. "Everybody did what they were supposed to do. It seems everybody has responded and I am proud of the team. When the game started it seemed like we didn't have any energy and the crowd didn't have any energy and Minnesota just took it to us."

Parks collected 15 points and 12 boards and Kevin Garnett added 11, 11 and six assists for Minnesota, which committed 20 turnovers. The Timberwolves scored over 100 points for the seventh straight game and went into overtime for the third time in their last five contests.

"It's disappointing the way we played," said Gugliotta. "We put it on in the first half and then we took it for granted and didn't do the things we were doing. We stopped playing and moving the ball on offense. We gave them fast-break opportunities. I'm not sure if they took us out of our offense or we just didn't feel like running. We need to bounce back right away from this one."
