NEW YORK (AP) — All-Star Chris Bosh had 27 points and 15 rebounds, Hedo Turkoglu set season highs with 26 points and 11 rebounds and the Toronto Raptors rallied to beat the New York Knicks 106-104 on Thursday night.
The Raptors, who erased a 13-point deficit Wednesday night in a 111-103 victory over Miami, have trailed by double digits in each game during their winning streak.
David Lee had 29 points and 18 rebounds for New York, 3-7 in its last 10 games. The mediocre stretch includes a victory over woeful Minnesota and an embarrassing 128-78 loss to Dallas on Sunday — the worst home loss in franchise history.
Bosh hit two free throws with 7 minutes left to give the Raptors a 91-85 lead, but New York battled back. Harrington converted a three-point play and made a 3-pointer to put the Knicks in front 100-97 at the 2:51 mark. Lee then got free for a dunk to extend the lead to five.
Back came the Raptors, who scored the next eight points. Turkoglu had two free throws and a rebound basket, and Jack scored inside. Bosh then drove past Wilson Chandler to make it 105-102 with 15.9 seconds remaining.
After Lee's rebound basket, Jack hit a free throw, the got in front of Harrington on defense to secure the victory.
Harrington finished with 20 points, and Chandler had 14 for New York.
Lee shrugged off his All-Star miss before the game, saying it was out of control and calling the snub "motivation" for the rest of the season.
He sure looked motivated against Toronto.
Lee ripped the Raptors for 17 points and 10 rebounds in the first half, showing off a nice face-up jumper and plenty of poise inside. He powered the Knicks to a 34-20 lead after one quarter, but Calderon had eight points in the second quarter to help Toronto cut it to 53-49 at halftime.
NOTES: Bosh found out before the game he had made the All-Star team for the fifth straight season, tying Vince Carter for the most appearances in Raptors history. ... Raptors rookie G DeMar DeRozan missed his second consecutive game with a sprained right ankle and was replaced in the starting lineup by Sonny Weems. DeRozan didn't make the trip to New York. ... Knicks F Jared Jeffries (hyperextended right knee) didn't play in the second half. It was unclear when he was injured. ... Raptors coach Jay Triano said before the game that C Andrea Bargnani hurt his foot in the closing seconds of Toronto's victory over Miami on Wednesday night. But Triano didn't specify which foot, and Bargnani started against New York.
