GAME RECAP

Doug Christie scored 14 of his career-high 35 points after regulation as the Toronto Raptors needed three overtimes before defeating the Orlando Magic, 115-107, matching the longest game in the history of both teams.

John Wallace, who scored 24 points, hit a short jumper to open the third overtime and Christie followed with a three-pointer, giving the Raptors a 108-103 lead. A floater by Gerald Wilkins trimmed Orlando's deficit to 110-107 with 1:45 remaining.

But Chauncey Billups, who had missed his first seven three-point attempts, buried a three and Christie, who grabbed nine rebounds, hit a jumper for the final margin.

"It was a great game, we overcame a lot of adversity tonight," Wallace said. "We finally pulled it out. This was a type of game we would've lost earlier in the season, so it feels good to get this win."

The Raptors, whose only other triple-overtime game was a loss in Boston on December 11th, 1996, snapped a six-game road losing streak. They won away from home for the first time since an 84-80 triumph at Denver on January 29th and improved to 5-22 overall on the road.

Grant, battling the flu, played a franchise-record 58 minutes and finished with 20 points and a season-high 20 rebounds for the Magic, who were previously stretched to three overtimes on two occasions.

"We just couldn't do anything down the stretch," Magic coach Chuck Daly said. "We did not have anywhere to go to score. We just could not stop them."

Derek Strong had 21 points and 11 boards for Orlando, which had its five-game winning streak snapped and lost to Toronto for just the second time in 10 all-time meetings.

The Magic's Nick Anderson, the reigning Player of the Week, missed the game with the flu.

Toronto trailed by as many as 14 points in the second half, but pulled within 84-82 on a follow shot by Christie with 51 seconds left in regulation. After Strong committed his second straight turnover, Christie converted a fast-break layup and was fouled by Wilkins. He hit the foul shot with 33 seconds left, giving the Raptors their first lead since the first half.

Danny Schayes hit one of two from the line to tie the game with 19 seconds remaining, but Christie had a chance to win it for Toronto. He drove the lane and pulled up for a wide-open jumper at the foul line, but his shot caromed off the rim as time expired.

A three-point play by Christie gave the Raptors a slim 90-89 edge with 1:54 left in the first overtime. Derek Harper, who had 16 points, responded with a jumper from the right wing before Christie hit two free throws to put Toronto back in front.

"He (Christie) got on a roll and to his credit, he made shots and plays," Raptors coach Butch Carter said. "Once he started making them, then his teammates started looking for him."

After a turnover by Orlando, Dee Brown recorded one of his season-best nine assists as he fed a wide-open Wallace for a 10-footer to increase the advantage to 94-91 with 40 seconds left. But Harper fired back, pulling up for a 26-foot three-pointer over Christie to knot the score again.

Marcus Camby missed a long jumper for Toronto and, after a timeout by the Magic, Harper missed a driving lay-in and Bo Outlaw was well off with his follow attempt. The Raptors grabbed the rebound but did not have enough time to get a shot off before the game went to double overtime.

Wilkins hit two free throws and, following a missed layup by Billups, hit a driving lay-in to give Orlando a 100-98 lead. After Billups was off with a jumper, Strong nailed a reverse slam with 27 seconds left for a four-point edge.

The Magic, seemingly on their way to victory, allowed Christie to get inside for an easy layup. Harper had a chance to secure the win but made just one of two free throws, putting Orlando ahead, 103-100.

Billups then atoned for his earlier misses in the second overtime by driving the lane, hitting a tough lay-in and getting fouled by Outlaw. Billups, who was just 4-for-16 from the field for 13 points, sank the foul shot to tie the game with 10.7 seconds to go.

Wilkins' long three-point attempt as time ran out was off the mark, forcing a third overtime.

"We had it won three times, managed to give it away every time," Schayes said. "We had to do 100 things wrong to lose and we did all 100. It's discouraging."

Camby had 14 points and 13 rebounds as Toronto won for the first time in five trips to Orlando. Half of the Raptors' last six wins have come in overtime, including a 113-105 triumph over Vancouver just five days ago.

"It was all hearts and efforts tonight," Camby said. "Our backs were against the wall, especially playing down on the road against a quality team like Orlando. We just dug down deep and guys made big plays tonight."

Outlaw had 12 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and five steals for the Magic, who lost for the first time in 11 games this season when scoring at least 100 points. They had won their only other triple-overtime games -- November 8th, 1995 against New Jersey and February 14th, 1993 against New York.
