Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- This time, it was the Los Angeles Clippers with the knockout punch.

Rookie Darius Miles scored a season-high 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Jeff McInnis gained revenge with 14 points and a career-best 13 assists as the Clippers cruised to a 110-97 victory over the undermanned Toronto Raptors.

In one of the most bizarre incidents of the NBA season, McInnis was punched in the face by Charles Oakley during a shootaround on December 1 at the Air Canada Centre.

The power forward was suspended three games and fined $15,000 for his actions but the Raptors won without him in overtime.

All five starters scored in double figures for Los Angeles, which held a 19-point lead late in the first quarter and was up by 10 at halftime. The closest the Raptors came in the fourth quarter was 96-87 on a driving layup by Kevin Willis with 5:19 left. But Los Angeles maintained a double-digit lead through the final five minutes to snap a four-game slide to Toronto.

"It was a big win tonight," McInnis said. "I just played basketball. I didn't get into all that. I wasn't even looking at the other team. At times I wanted to get into a little something but I just kept my focus on basketball and that we won the game, which was the most important thing."

Lamar Odom contributed 18 points and Michael Olowokandi added 14 and nine rebounds for the Clippers, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

"Everybody stepped up big the whole night," McInnis said. "We played good on defense and didn't let them get into a rhythm. It was a team win."

Oakley had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Vince Carter -- double-teamed almost every time he touched the ball -- made a late charge to finish with 25 points. But the Raptors could not overcome the absence of center Antonio Davis and forward Corliss Williamson.

Davis suffered a strained left groin in Saturday's game at Phoenix and Williamson was fined and suspended for an altercation in that contest.

Toronto finished its four-game road trip at 1-3 and has dropped four of five overall.

Tuesday's game contained plenty of action but was without the histrionics and heriocs that marked the previous two encounters.

Without the suspended Oakley and an injured Carter, the Raptors rallied from a nine-point deficit with under two minutes left to post a 104-95 overtime victory in December.

Carter gave Toronto a dramatic 95-94 win here last March, hitting a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

However, Tuesday's contest was pratically decided in the opening quarter.

"(The Clippers) were pumped up for this game," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "They had extra incentive because we beat them in Toronto. But in the first six minutes of the game they made all of their shots and we couldn't make anything."

After the Raptors scored the game's first three points, Los Angeles went on an 18-7 run to take an 11-point lead. The Clippers owned a 36-19 advantage after 12 minutes, their largest lead after the first quarter this season.

"We put ourselves in a hole and we couldn't afford to do that," Wilkens said. "The Clippers' first quarter set the tone for the game and we just couldn't get our rhythm back."

Down 53-41 with 5:20 left in the second quarter, Toronto went on an 8-0 spurt to close within four points on Dell Curry's jumper. Los Angeles scored the next eight points to push its lead to 61-49.

"The first half of the game killed us tonight," Wilkens said. "We let them get in front and we couldn't play from behind."

The Clippers' advantage in the third quarter never dipped lower than eight points.

"They played well," Oakley said. "They had lots of energy and with the young athletes they have, they just came out pumped."

Quentin Richardson and Keyon Dooling each collected 11 points for the Clippers, who shot 54.5 percent (42-for-77) from the field.

Willis finished with 20 points and seven rebounds and Morris Peterson chipped in 12 for Toronto, which shot 38 percent (34-for-89), making just 1-of-4 3-point attempts.
