GAME RECAP

Damon Stoudamire tied a career high with 36 points, including five in a decisive fourth-quarter run, as the Toronto Raptors won the battle of two of the league's worst teams with a 109-101 triumph over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Stoudamire, who also handed out 11 assists, scored the final five points of an 11-2 spurt midway through the fourth period. His three-pointer gave the Raptors a 99-88 lead with 5:15 to play. Stoudamire hit again from behind the arc with 3:51 remaining to give Toronto its biggest lead, 104-91, and Los Angeles got no closer than nine points thereafter.

"In the fourth, we finally got some stops," Stoudamire said. "We hit buckets when we're getting our stops. That's what probably turned the game.

"The whole team was telling me I need one more for a career high," he added. "Most of the time when people tell you, it's kind of hard to get that last bucket. It's like the bucket got a lid on it, you know?"

Marcus Camby scored 20 points as Toronto snapped a five-game home losing streak and won for just the second time in its last eight contests overall. The Raptors still own the second-worst record in the league at 6-31.

"Basically, it was a great team effort tonight," Raptors coach Darrell Walker said. "The guys came out and competed and played hard."

Lamond Murray had 23 points and 10 boards for Los Angeles, which has lost four straight games and four in a row on the road. The Clippers also are among five teams still in single digits in wins, dropping to 9-29, the league's fourth-worst mark.

"It's definitely embarassing to come in here and play a team that's not been so hot. You can't come in here and lose, we've got to beat these teams," Murray said.

John Wallace scored 14 points for the Raptors and drained a jumper with 8:22 to go to spark the pivotal 11-2 burst. Zan Tabak followed with his own jumper before Wallace dunked to build a 94-86 edge.

Clippers rookie Maurice Taylor, who scored 17 points off the bench, answered with a bucket before Stoudamire hit a jumper and a three-pointer to cap the burst.

Stoudamire scored 16 points in the opening quarter, including Toronto's final seven of the period, but James Robinson hit a halfcourt heave at the buzzer to pull the Clippers within 35-33.

Stoudamire had 22 at the half, helping the Raptors to a 59-56 edge. But neither team could ever establish a lead larger than six points through the first three quarters and Toronto led 84-80 entering the final 12 minutes.

"For some unknown reason the Clippers seemed to play me straight up," Stoudamire said. "It really wasn't that hard work to tell the truth."

"Anytime Damon gets hot, it's going to be a tough night to play against the Raptors," Clippers guard Brent Barry explained. "He makes the game a lot of fun when he starts to get hot, not for us, but for them."

Stoudamire drained four three-pointers and attempted 31 shots from the field, hitting 14. Camby shot 9-of-15 and Wallace was 6-of-9 as the Raptors connected on 52 percent (45-of-86) from the floor overall.

Toronto's Doug Christie contributed 14 points and six assists and atoned for six turnovers with seven steals.

Barry and Rodney Rogers scored 16 points apiece for the Clippers, who have allowed an average of 114.3 points over the last four games. Los Angeles, which won both of last season's matchups against Toronto, made 12-of-14 free throws and shot 46 percent (41-of-89), but just 7-of-23 from three-point range.
