Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Dee Brown outscored the Washington Wizards by himself in the fourth quarter, propelling the Toronto Raptors to a 107-91 victory, their third in four games.

After scoring only two points in the opening three periods, Brown exploded for 18 on 6-of-6 shooting from 3-point range in the final 12 minutes. His first 3-pointer with 10:42 left gave the Raptors an 82-76 lead after the Wizards forged a 76-76 tie late in the third quarter.

"I just got some open looks," Brown said. "After you hit a couple, you think they will all go in. I just got in a rhythm."

"I didn't know that (he outscored the Wizards in the fourth quarter)," said Raptors coach Butch Carter. He's a special type of player. He gives you energy off the bench."

Doug Christie, who scored a season-high 28 points and dished out seven assists, followed with a jumper that completed an 8-0 run for Toronto, which eventually built a 16-point advantage.

"We kept pushing and pushing," said Christie. I got all open shots. I got in a groove."

The Wizards, who scored 28 points in the third quarter to rally from a five-point halftime deficit, managed only 15 in the fourth and suffered their third straight loss.

Rod Strickland had 21 points and nine assists and Ben Wallace scored a career-high 16 points while grabbing 12 rebounds for Washington.

"We executed tonight, we just didn't hit the shots," said Strickland. "This is just so, so frustrating. We are all trying now just to be professional about this."

After trailing by eight points midway through the third quarter, the Wizards slowly fought back and forced the 76-76 tie on a short jumper by Jeff McInnis with 24 seconds left in the period.

But Tracy McGrady nailed a 17-footer as the buzzer sounded to give the Raptors the lead for good. Michael Stewart opened the scoring in the fourth quarter by making one of two from the foul line before baskets by Brown and Christie made it an eight-point game.

McInnis briefly stemmed the tide with a short jumper, but Brown drained a 3-pointer and McGrady made a pair of free throws to give the Raptors an 11-point advantage. After a jumper by Strickland, Brown's 3-pointer made it 92-80 and the Wizards came no closer than nine points thereafter.

Toronto's biggest lead came at the final margin, which fittingly was provided by Brown, who drained his sixth 3-pointer with 16 seconds left.

Vince Carter had 16 points, five rebounds and four assists and McGrady, John Wallace and Kevin Willis netted 10 points apiece to give Toronto six players in double figures. Charles Oakley grabbed nine rebounds for the Raptors, who shot 52 percent (36-of-69) and were 11-of-19 from 3-point range.

"The more time I play, the better I become," Carter said. "We needed this one, especially on the road."

Mitch Richmond scored 16 points and Otis Thrope contributed 13 for the Wizards, who held a 43-37 advantage on the boards but shot 45 percent (38-of-85) and was 3-of-8 from beyond the arc.

"This ranks up as one of the all-time most struggling seasons," said Richmond. "It has been real frustrating. With all the expectations we had, we haven't met the challenge. To fight so long and so hard, it's frustrating."
