Andrea Bargnani scored 33 points, DeMar DeRozan had 30 and the Toronto Raptors beat Washington 116-107 on Friday night, handing the hapless Wizards their 13th loss in 14 games.

Jose Calderon had 17 points and Leandro Barbosa scored 15 for the Raptors, who won for just the sixth time in 31 games. Toronto had lost seven of nine.

Washington rookie Trevor Booker fouled out after scoring a career-high 26 points and matching his career best with 13 rebounds. One game after scoring a career-high 27 points, rookie Jordan Crawford had 25 for the Wizards.

John Wall had 21 points and Maurice Evans scored 15. JaVale McGee had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Wizards, who have lost six straight away from home since their only road victory of the season at NBA-worst Cleveland on Feb. 13.

Washington is 1-31 on the road, where it must play nine of its final 15 games.

Toronto led 98-87 with 6:25 left before Washington trimmed the gap to 98-96 with a 9-0 run that featured two dunks by Evans, one from McGee and a follow slam by Booker.

Bargnani stopped the run with a layup and, after Wall made two free throws, he and Reggie Evans each made a pair from the line, giving Toronto a 104-98 lead with 2:14 left. Washington did not challenge again.

Andray Blatche missed his fourth straight game with a sore right shoulder, while Josh Howard and Nick Young both missed their second straight with left knee injuries. For the second straight game, Washington started three rookies: Booker, Wall and Crawford.

Bargnani scored 12 points and DeRozan had 10 in the first as the Raptors made 10 of 11 from the line to open a 33-27 lead. Booker had a strong opening quarter for the Wizards, with 12 points and five rebounds. The forward made six of his first seven shots, including three dunks.

Washington used a 16-2 run to take a 43-37 lead with 7:45 left in the second, but Calderon hit consecutive jumpers, including a 3, and DeRozan added a putback dunk to restore the Raptors lead. DeRozan had eight in the quarter to give Toronto a 62-53 lead at the half.

Crawford scored 10 points in the third, but Bargnani had 11 and DeRozan added eight for the Raptors, who took an 88-77 lead into the fourth.
