OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Chris Bosh had 19 points and 14 rebounds, and got a big lift from Toronto's bench as the Raptors beat the New Orleans Hornets 94-77 Tuesday night for their first road win of the season. Anthony Parker also had 19 points, No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani scored a career-high 16, Joey Graham added 14 and Jose Calderon tied his season best with 13 points for Toronto, which had lost its first seven road games. ADVERTISEMENT Chris Paul had 16 points and 11 assists to lead New Orleans. Rasual Butler, starting for the injured Peja Stojakovic, added 12 points and Tyson Chandler pulled down 17 rebounds. Also without David West (forearm), last season's leading scorer, the Hornets haven't scored more than 83 points during a four-game losing streak. Bobcats 96, Nets 92 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Rookie Adam Morrison scored 22 points and Sean May had a career-high 20 as Charlotte sent New Jersey to its sixth straight loss. Primoz Brezec had 13 for the Bobcats, who ended a two-game losing streak and won for only the second time in seven road games. Raymond Felton and Gerald Wallace each added 12. Richard Jefferson led New Jersey with 27 points. Vince Carter had 25 and Nenad Krstic 20. Led by May and Felton, the Bobcats' reserves outscored New Jersey's 36-7. Grizzlies 108, Nuggets 96 DENVER (AP) -- Hakim Warrick scored 25 points and Memphis broke a 17-game losing streak in Denver. Chucky Atkins added 22, including four 3-pointers, and Mike Miller had 13 points and 14 assists. Carmelo Anthony, who was recently named the Western Conference Player of the Week, finished with 37 points. He has now scored 30 or more points in 10 of his last 11 games. The Grizzlies were the only NBA team without a win at the Pepsi Center until Tuesday night. They hadn't won in Denver since Nov. 18, 1997, when the Nuggets played at McNichols Arena. Rockets 82, Timberwolves 75 HOUSTON (AP) -- Yao Ming scored 25 points, Shane Battier hit a pair of key 3-pointers and added 17, and Houston beat Minnesota despite an injury to Tracy McGrady. The six-time All-Star bruised his left hip in a first-half collision and seemed affected the rest of the game, scoring only eight points on 4-of-14 shooting. He also had seven assists as the Rockets won their fourth straight. Kevin Garnett had 25 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota, his league-leading 12th double-double. Randy Foye added 11. Wizards 96, Hawks 95 WASHINGTON (AP) -- Caron Butler's three-point play with 1:04 remaining helped Washington end a four-game losing streak. Butler scored 21 points and was perfect on 15 free throws to extend his streak to 32 straight, dating to Nov. 17 against the Detroit Pistons. He bailed out backcourt mate Gilbert Arenas, who also had 21 points but committed nine turnovers. Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 33 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Reserve guard Tyronn Lue added 18 points for Atlanta. Bulls 102, Knicks 85 CHICAGO (AP) -- Ben Gordon scored 23 points, Ben Wallace kept his headband out of sight, and Chicago beat New York for the second time in four nights. Back home after going 1-6 on the annual circus road trip, the Bulls pulled away midway through the fourth quarter. Wallace expressed no regret for wearing a headband during Saturday's game, a violation of team rules that led to him being benched. Those issues aside, Wallace grabbed 12 rebounds Tuesday. Gordon shot 8-of-18 after scoring seven on Saturday, and Chris Duhon added 18 points. Former Bulls center Eddy Curry led New York with 24 points
