GAME RECAP

The Toronto Raptors snapped a franchise-record 17-game losing streak, erasing an 18-point second-quarter deficit and holding on for a 104-97 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers behind a season-high 39 points from Walt Williams.

The Raptors ended the ninth-longest single-season losing streak in NBA history with just their second win of the season and first in 11 road games. Toronto improved to 2-20, with its other win coming November 4th against Golden State.

"It feels good," Raptors coach Darrell Walker said. "The guys are happy. It's only one game, but we'll take this one, get a day off an go to Chicago."

Williams fell one point shy of his career high, set Janaury 2nd, 1993 against Philadelphia while he was with the Sacramento Kings. He shot 11-of-18 from the field, including 6-of-8 from three-point range, and made 11-of-12 free throws.

"When I stepped out on the court, I just felt good," Williams said. "I was hitting shots. I was able to finish the plays on the inside and hit my shots on the outside. I don't think I ever felt this comfortable all year. I certainly was not getting looks I got today."

Williams led a charge that saw the Raptors outscore the 76ers 48-14 during a 16-minute stretch over the second and third quarters. During that explosion, Philadelphia coach Larry Brown was ejected.

"I'm sitting in there and watching as a spectator, and I'm listening to (announcer) Steve Mix on TV and he's talking about the urgency that we're faced with," Brown said. "I didn't see any urgency out there on the court. I didn't see guys playing like wild men or denying or overplaying or trying to do anything to get back in the game and that's troublesome to me. After the games, when we lose, I don't see hurt, I don't see guys feeling so sick that we just lost a game. If you didn't put a scoreboard up there, I don't think anyone would know who was ahead and who was behind with us."

John Wallace scored 14 points and Marcus Camby added 12 for the Raptors, who hold a 5-4 edge in the all-time series.

Allen Iverson collected 21 points and seven assists and Jerry Stackhouse added 19 points for the Sixers, who have lost five of their last six games.

Philadelphia established CoreStates Center records for baskets (18) and points (38) in the first quarter as it raced to a 15-point lead behind 13 points from Stackhouse. The Sixers opened their largest lead at 46-28 on a fast-break dunk by Mark Davis with 8:49 remaining in the second quarter.

But Philadelphia went cold and Toronto rallied behind Williams, who scored 14 points in a 29-8 explosion that closed the half. His three-pointer with 14 seconds left gave the Raptors the lead for good at 57-54.

"We kept our halfcourt pressure on them in the second quarter," Walker said. "We didn't want them, to run their offense as well as they had been doing earlier in the game. We limited their offensive chances and began to take over the game defensively."

The Sixers trailed 65-58 when Brown was ejected with 7:23 left in the third quarter. He argued that a shot by Jimmy Jackson was goaltended and received two technical fouls from referee Joe Crawford.

"I yelled, 'Goaltending,'" Brown said. "That's exactly what I said. I know the referee and you can't put yourself in that position. You can't show up a referee, in their minds. And you can't let down your team in that way. I was foolish to get kicked out of the game."

Damon Stoudamire, who had 10 points and 14 assists, made both technical free throws and Camby dunked for a 69-58 lead with 6:21 left in the period. Toronto opened its largest advantage on a three-pointer by Williams with 4:20 to go.

The Raptors took an 80-69 lead into the final quarter but two baskets by Terry Cummings capped a 6-0 run that cut the deficit to 80-75 with 9:25 to play.

A three-pointer by rookie Tim Thomas pulled Philadelphia within 96-93 with 2:04 remaining, but Oliver Miller made a follow shot and Camby answered Clarence Weatherspoon's layup with a jumper for a 100-95 lead with 52 seconds left. A fast-break dunk by Miller sealed it with 28 seconds to play.

"After all the hard-fought games we could have won, all the ones we've lost, this is really big for us," Wallace said. "When we were down early in the second quarter, we never quit. We got ourselves back into it. We came out in the third quarter and took over and the game was basically ours."

Miller and Zan Tabak added 11 points apiece and Miller grabbed 11 rebounds for the Raptors, who shot 41.5 percent (34-of-82) from the field and made 30-of-35 free throws.

Weatherspoon had 14 points and 11 rebounds and Jackson added 11 points for the Sixers, who shot 45 percent (37-of-83) and held a 46-42 rebounding edge. But Philadelphia was 20-of-32 from the line as Iverson missed six free throws.

"We stopped making shots and we relaxed a little bit on defense," Weatherspoon said. "We can't afford to do that, especially if we start to go cold. You have to put more pressure on them, to make sure they don't score. You don't give them a second chance to get back in it. We gave them that chance and they took advantage of it."
