Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- A pair of career efforts lifted the Toronto Raptors to an easy win. Chris Bosh scored a career-high 33 points and Matt Bonner came off the bench to notch a personal-best 18 and the Raptors cruised to a 95-84 victory over the New Orleans Hornets. The tandem made up for the loss of starting forward Morris Peterson, who left late in the first quarter with a bruised left knee, and a poor shooting effort by their teammates. "I thought our guys played well," Toronto coach Sam Mitchell said. "I thought Chris played well. I thought Matt filled in and played really well. Every time they made a run, either Chris or Jalen (Rose) made a shot." Bosh, who also grabbed 15 rebounds and had three steals, scored 12 points in the first quarter and Bonner got it going in the second, scoring seven points to help Toronto to a 53-36 halftime lead. "My teammates found me in the right spots and I took advantage of it," Bosh said. "I made some jump shots, and that's a key thing sometimes. If you make your outside shots, it tends to help your offense a little more." The Hornets got within 57-42 midway through the third period, but Bonner scored five quick points to kick off a 12-3 surge that gave the Raptors their largest lead, 69-45, with 4:47 to go. Bonner finished a 4-of-4 effort from 3-point range with a pair in the fourth, helping Toronto wrap up its fourth win in six games. "With him (Peterson) out, someone has to try to fill in those minutes, and tonight it was my night," Bonner said. "I was just a recipient of my teammates' passes. I was able to step in and make the open shots." Bosh and Bonner combined to make 18-of-26 shots. Their teammates were just 16-of-47 (34 percent). "He (Bosh) is a guy you have to set the tone on, and get into him early," said Hornets center P.J. Brown, who scored six points and pulled down eight boards. "He got into a nice little rhythm. He's a young player who is getting better and better from game to game. He has some skills down on the box. He can do a lot of different things." Lee Nailon scored 18 points and Bostjan Nachbar added 15 for New Orleans, which had won two in a row. The Hornets have not won three straight since February 11-18, 2004. "We felt good in warmups, guys were enthusiastic, and I thought that we were really ready to play," Brown said. "But when the ball went up, that really wasn't the case." The Raptors connected on 10-of-21 shots (48 percent) from 3-point range while the Hornets were just 4-of-19 (21 percent). Toronto was never threatened after outscoring New Orleans, 53-31, across the second and third quarters.
