NBA: Toronto 101, New Jersey 79
Chris Bosh scored 18 points Friday and the Toronto Raptors dominated the third period to run away from New Jersey 101-79.
The Raptors won their second straight on the heels of a five-game losing streak. Jason Kapono and Joey Graham chipped in 16 points each for Toronto.
New Jersey suffered through a 31-percent shooting performance and Vince Carter failed to make a field goal in 13 attempts. It was the first time in his career he had played at least 10 minutes in a game without scoring from the field.
The Nets were led by Yi Jianlian and Devin Harris with 14 each.
Toronto owned a six-point lead at the half and put together a 12-0 run in the third period to take control.
The 79 points were the fewest scored by the Nets this season.
