Chris Bosh scored 22 points, Jose Calderon had 11 points and 11 assists, and the Toronto Raptors beat Philadelphia 111-104 on Sunday night, handing the 76ers their season-high fifth straight loss. Anthony Parker scored 18 points, Andrea Bargnani had 17 and Shawn Marion had 14 for the Raptors, who won for the first time in five games. Louis Williams had 23 points and Andre Igoudala had 21 for the 76ers, with Samuel Dalembert adding 18 points and 12 rebounds. Andre Miller and Marreese Speights each had 10 points for the 76ers, who have their first five-game losing streak since dropping seven in a row between Jan. 2-14, 2008. The 76ers close the regular season against the top two seeds in the Eastern Conference, hosting Boston on Tuesday and visiting Cleveland on Wednesday. Leading 81-80 after three quarters, the Raptors opened the fourth with an 8-0 run. Philadelphia couldn't close the gap, and a 7-0 Toronto spurt, capped by Quincy Douby's 3-pointer, gave the Raptors a 102-88 edge with 5:45 remanning. The 76ers called a timeout, then got two 3-pointers from Igoudala and a pair of free throws from Miller. After Bargnani's dunk, Williams and Miller each made two more from the line, making it 104-100 with 2:51 left. The Raptors didn't make another field goal the rest of the way, but Bosh, Calderon and Marion went 7-for-8 from the free throw line to help Toronto seal it. Philadelphia scored the first five points of the game, but Toronto answered with an 11-2 run and led 27-22 after the first period. The 76ers went back in front in the second, forcing Toronto to call time out after three consecutive 3-pointers by Royal Ivey gave Philadelphia a 46-39 lead. Marion had four points as the Raptors closed the second quarter on an 8-1 run, tying it at 53 at the break.

Notes

Toronto finished 18-23 at home. Before the game, Raptors coach Jay Triano said his team needs to show more toughness at home next season. "That has to be something that changes," Triano said. "We have to take care of the home court." ... Bosh thanked fans for their support during a losing season in a pregame address. ... Philadelphia's Reggie Evans was not penalized for throwing the ball into the first row of seats after he was called for traveling in the second quarter.
