GAME RECAP

Antonio McDyess had 24 points and 14 rebounds and Jason Kidd collected 22 points and 16 assists, leading the Phoenix Suns to their fourth consecutive win, 110-105 over the Toronto Raptors.

Rex Chapman scored 23 points and Clifford Robinson 20 for the Suns, who improved to a stellar 5-1 on their seven-game road trip leading into the All-Star break. The trip concludes Thursday at New Jersey.

"Overall we came in tired from a long road trip," said McDyess. "But the guys fought through that tonight and played well in the second half. Toronto came out and played tough. Rex hit some key shots for us and then Cliff and myself got some big rebounds and hit some big shots down the stretch."

Phoenix, which has won nine of its last 11 games, also improved to 15-8 on the road, the third-best mark in the league and matching its win total from last season (15-26).

Doug Christie and Walt Williams scored 24 points apiece to lead Toronto, which had its three-game home winning streak snapped. The Raptors have lost three in a row overall following a franchise-record four-game winning streak.

Both teams shot 50 percent (41-for-82) from the field but the Suns won the rebounding battle, 47-35. Phoenix also shot 63 percent (10-for-16) from three-point range, with Chapman connecting on 5-of-9 attempts.

"We didn't deserve to win," Toronto coach Darrell Walker said. "When you don't make shots it's difficult to win. Tonight we just didn't hit the glass when we needed to. We didn't rebound on the defensive end."

Toronto, behind Christie's 16 points, took a 56-55 lead at halftime. A basket by Christie at the 9:05 mark of the third quarter gave the Raptors a 63-60 edge, but the Suns answered with a 10-0 spurt to take the lead.

Two dunks by McDyess were wrapped around three-pointers by Kidd and Chapman to give Phoenix a 70-63 lead. The Suns increased the margin to 79-69 at the 5:21 mark after Chapman -- who had five three-pointers in the quarter -- hit two more from behind the arc and Kidd drilled one.

"The guys were finding me and I was just fortunate to make them," Chapman said. "We were kind of sloppy for the most part. Our effort turned around in the second half and we found a way to win. It wasn't pretty but you've got to give Toronto credit. They played hard."

Phoenix was cruising along with a 91-82 lead early in the fourth quarter when Toronto put together a 13-4 surge to tie it, 95-95, with 6:04 remaining.

Williams contributed three three-pointers to the spurt and a jumper by John Wallace capped it.

After a basket by Kidd and a pair of free throws by Christie tied the score, 97-97, Phoenix used an 8-1 run to take the lead for good. Robinson fueled the burst with six points, hitting a jumper with 1:55 left to put the Suns ahead, 105-98.

Toronto drew within 109-105 with 18.7 seconds left following a basket by Damon Stoudamire, but that was as close as the Raptors got.

"They have so many skill players and so many weapons, they're hard to play against," said Stoudamire, who had 16 points and eight assists. "When they're hitting their jump shots, they're hard to beat. Our team looks a little tired right now. The All-Star break is coming at just the right time."
