Toronto Raptors Team Report – November 17

=== Toronto Raptors Team Report – November 17 ===

(Sports Network) – Chris Bosh scored a career-high 25 points and tied a
career-best with nine rebounds to lead the offensively-challenged Toronto
Raptors to a 101-97 double-overtime win over the Midwest Division-leading
Houston Rockets at the Air Canada Centre on Sunday.

Jerome Williams had eight points and 11 rebounds, as Toronto snapped a three-
game losing streak and scored more than 90 points for the first time this
season.

Vince Carter missed his first 10 shots from the field, not making one until
there was 7:31 left in the third quarter, and finished with 18 points. Carter
also turned the ball over nine times, but the Raptors still won their fifth-
straight home game, the first time in franchise history the squad has opened a
season with five consecutive wins at home.

The Raptors have hit a three-pointer in 378-straight games, which is the
longest current streak in the NBA.

Toronto’s bench outscored the Houston reserves, 60-21.

The Raptors are off until Wednesday when they host Allen Iverson and the
Philadelphia 76ers.
