(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

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.
