Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors now belong to Morris Peterson and Chris Bosh, who made sure the Boston Celtics know it. Peterson and Bosh both set career highs in scoring to lead the Raptors to a 104-93 victory over the Celtics. Peterson poured in 36 points and was deadly from the arc while Bosh recorded his fifth straight double-double with 26 points and 11 rebounds. "I thought our guys did a good job of getting them the ball," Raptors coach Sam Mitchell said. "Mo (Pete) played excellent and they didn't have anyone that could match up with Chris." Peterson, who often played in the shadow of former Raptors superstar Vince Carter, hit 12-of-22 from the floor, including 7-of-14 3-pointers. Bosh, a second-year forward and the cornerstone of the franchise's future, was 14-of-18 from the line. "It's staying aggressive and not settling for jump shots," Bosh said. "I settled for a couple of jump shots and I thought it may be a little different if I got to the basket. I just kept attacking the basket and positive things just kept happening." The Raptors went on a 20-9 run to close the first half and take a 59-49 lead. Peterson scored 21 points, equaling his previous season high, as Toronto set a franchise record for 3-pointers in a half with 10. "I'm just trying to stay aggressive and make open shots," said Peterson, who nailed a 40-footer with one second left on the shot clock late in the first half. "My confidence is definitely higher. Right now I get a chance to show what I can do. I think I made more today than I missed, so that is a good thing." For the Raptors, it was another case of playing well in the Air Canada Centre. They are 12-5 at home as they concluded a 4-1 homestand. Paul Pierce had 23 points and 10 rebounds while Ricky Davis scored 22 points off the bench for the Celtics, who have lost seven straight road games. "You're going to have some stretches where you struggle on the road," Boston coach Doc Rivers said. "As long as you take care of your home court, you can still hang in there." "We are not that good right now," Pierce added. "We're still growing and still learning, and we've still got a long way to go." Boston was able to assert itself in the paint, outscoring Toronto, 42-24. However, the Celtics made just 3-of-16 shots from the arc while the Raptors made 14-of-29.
