Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Muggsy Bogues scored 13 of his season-high 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Toronto Raptors snapped a three-game losing streak with a 108-102 victory over the slumping Orlando Magic.

The 5-3 Bogues, whose previous season high was just 12 points, directed Toronto's offense in the final period. He benefited from the double-teams on Raptors star Vince Carter, who had 30 points and a season-high nine assists.

"It wasn't the best win but we'll take it right now," Carter said. "That (assist total) means more to me than the points. I was trying to give it to everybody to get the double-double. We really needed this game to help rebuild our confidence."

"If Vince makes open shots early, it draws the double-team to him," Raptors coach Butch Carter said. "Tonight he was able to find the open people. We basically used Vince as bait."

Bogues made 6-of-10 shots. He scored four points in a decisive 11-2 burst, including a pair of free throws that capped it at 101-95 with 42 seconds to play. In the final minute, Bogues made 9-of-10 free throws to foil Orlando's attempts to get back in the game.

"It was important to win this game and I was enthused by Muggsy's impersonation of (shooting guard) Dell Curry," Butch Carter said.

"The way we've been playing lately, I was trying to be a little more aggressive offensively," Bogues said. "I was just trying to lead by example. Without our 3-point shooters (Curry and Dee Brown, both injured), other guys have to step up."

Tariq Abdul-Wahad scored 23 points and Michael Doleac added 20, both season highs, for the Magic, who committed 27 turnovers and lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

"I don't think we can ever win turning the ball over 27 times," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "We literally threw the game away. It's amazing to me that we were still in the game."

Orlando trailed 80-74 entering the fourth quarter but gradually climbed back in it. The Magic took their first lead since the second quarter at 93-92 on a free throw by Bo Outlaw with 5:05 to go.

Carter answered with a jumper to trigger the decisive burst. Bogues and Charles Oakley made jumpers around a basket by Doleac for a 98-95 lead with 2:29 remaining.

"We have to get in better position offensively," Armstrong said. "Oakley started hitting, Muggsy started hitting and so did Vince Carter."

"We did an excellent job of sharing the basketball," Bogues said. "Vince gave me and Oak a chance to take some open shots down the stretch."

The teams went scoreless for nearly two minutes before Toronto's Antonio Davis was fouled. He made the first and missed the second, which Oakley tapped to mid-court. The ball went out of bounds off Orlando's Darrell Armstrong and Bogues was fouled on the ensuing possession, beginning his parade to the line.

Tracy McGrady scored 16 points, Doug Christie 11 and Davis 10 for the Raptors, who shot 46.5 percent (40-of-86) and overcame 21 turnovers. Davis pulled down nine rebounds.

Armstrong scored 15 points and Chris Gatling added 14 for the Magic, who shot 49 percent (35-of-72) and made 31-of-34 free throws but were undone by their sloppy play. Ben Wallace had 10 rebounds.

Carter scored 15 points in the first half as Toronto opened a 54-51 lead. He added 10 points in the third quarter, when the Raptors led by as many as nine before taking their six-point edge to the final period.

"With the lead going into the fourth quarter, we've been good," Butch Carter said. "Even though we made some mistakes, we hung on."
