Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors did not look like a team that played three overtimes less than 24 hours earlier. But the Washington Wizards have a way of bringing out the best in their opponents.

Shaking off Friday's draining loss to Sacramento, the Raptors scored 60 points in the first half and coasted to a 106-99 victory over the Wizards.

The game was not as close as the score indicated as Toronto opened a 20-point lead in the first minute of the fourth quarter.

"The mental toughness part came into play and we pushed the ball, and that helped make a difference," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said.

Keon Clark, averaging just seven points per game, scored 13 of his 17 in the first half, when the Raptors shot 57 percent (28-of-49) from the field to build a 60-45 cushion.

The win prevented the Raptors from falling back to .500 for the first time since they were 19-19 on January 16.

"The most important thing right now is being as far away from .500 as we can -- going up, of course," Wilkens said.

Toronto, which maintained a double-digit advantage throughout the second half, improved to 3-0 against Washington this season, topping the century mark in all three meetings.

Vince Carter, who collected 38 points and 10 rebounds while playing all 63 minutes on Friday, showed some ill effects but still led Toronto with 19 points.

"Our defense created a lot of easy baskets, which made it a little easier for us to go out there and play because we already had a comfortable lead," Carter said.

Richard Hamilton scored 23 points for Washington but could not prevent the Wizards from suffering their third straight loss and ninth defeat in the last 10 games.

The Raptors continued their red-hot shooting, taking a 96-78 lead on a 3-pointer by former Wizard Tracy Murray as the buzzer sounded to end the third quarter.

After scoring 30 points in each of the first two periods and 36 in the third, Toronto cooled off in the fourth, managing only 10 points -- just two in the final four minutes. The Raptors still shot 51 percent (46-of-90).

"We picked up the defense in the second half and I thought we did a little better job, but that is the area that I am most concerned with," Washington coach Leonard said. "We have difficulty keeping guys in front of us and defending them as well as we were earlier in the year."

Christian Laettner, one of five players acquired in Thursday's eight-player deal with Dallas, provided a spark for the Wizards in the fourth quarter, when he scored 14 of his season-high 18 points.

Laettner's jumper from the top of the key made it 104-92 with 4:31 left, but the Wizards missed numerous chances to get the deficit into single figures.

"It will feel better to win, so hopefully we can have a better first half tomorrow (at New Jersey)," Laettner said. "We'll be in a good flow as soon as the game starts. We weren't in a good flow in the first half and they took it to us and we were never able to recover."

Neither team scored again until Washington's Hubert Davis made two foul shots with 1:45 remaining. Rookie Courtney Alexander, also acquired in the Dallas trade, added 13 points. He converted a three-point play with 20 seconds left to complete the scoring.

Toronto rookie Morris Peterson arrived in the first quarter after traveling to Flint, Michigan to attend the funeral of Mateen Cleaves' brother, Herbert, who was slain earlier this month. Peterson and Cleaves were teammates at Michigan State.

Peterson scored eight points in 18 minutes, including a layup that gave the Raptors a 106-94 lead with 50 seconds to play. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Murray.

"He had an excused absence," Wilkens said. "He went to a funeral, but we're happy he got back in time to play some."

Five players scored in double figures for Toronto. Antonio Davis contributed 16 points and Charles Oakley and Alvin Williams added 12 apiece.
