Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- With his team shorthanded, Elton Brand filled the void with another big game as the Los Angeles Clippers posted a 78-68 triumph over the Toronto Raptors. Corey Maggette was serving the second game of his two-game suspension and Quentin Richardson was sidelined with a sprained right wrist. But Brand scored 19 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and keyed a decisive burst to open the second half. The Clippers won for just the second time in 10 road games by dominating the start of the third quarter. Clinging to a 40-38 lead after 24 minutes, Los Angeles scored 15 of the first 19 points after the break. Brand, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, had the first four and six overall. Chris Wilcox, getting the opportunity to start, had five of his 17 points in the spurt. Wilcox also had eight rebounds as Los Angeles helped offset 16 turnovers by holding a 41-32 edge on the glass. Brand had seven offensive rebounds. "I was proud of the way we played tonight," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Defensively, we did a really good job. We knew we'd have to come in with a great defensive game with Corey out. I thought we did a good job of helping out everybody." Wilcox had 12 points - six on dunks - in the opening quarter. "We had to show them right away what we had," Wilcox said. "We were missing two of our regulars and we needed someone to step up and tonight was my night." "He gave us a big lift off the offensive boards and by how he finished plays," Dunleavy said. "He is showing a lot of improvement but he is not as consistent as he needs to be." Jalen Rose scored 26 points and Vince Carter added 12 and 10 rebounds for Toronto. Carter was just 5-of-18 from the field as the Raptors - excluding Rose - shot 35 percent (18-of-51). Toronto was without rookie forward Chris Bosh, who injured his right knee against Cleveland on Wednesday. Its starting frontcourt was unable to compensate as Carter, Donyell Marshall and Lonny Baxter combined to score just 22 points on 9-of-31 shooting. "We didn't play with any energy. It's inexcusable," Raptors coach Kevin O'Neill said. "We got outplayed. I'm concerned and we need to find a way to play better." Brand opened the second half with a 14-footer and a layup. Wilcox followed with a free throw 2:09 into the period and had a layup 33 seconds later for a 47-38 lead. Brand found Wilcox for a 15-footer before Toronto finally scored on a dunk by Baxter. Rose had a 10-footer with just under seven minutes left before Brand had a layup that ignited a 6-0 run. "We wanted to attack them right away and not let them attack us," Brand said. "Chris (Wilcox) set the tone for us in the first quarter and I came out strong in the third quarter to re-establish our game."
