Bayless scored 11 points in the second as the Raptors rallied within 60-50 at the half. Toronto might have drawn closer if not for a poor performance at the foul line, making just 4 of 12 in the quarter.

Johnson had 10 points and eight rebounds in the third as Toronto trimmed the deficit to 82-75 heading into the final quarter. Bargnani opened the fourth with a driving layup before Stoudemire scored consecutive baskets, and Williams made a 3-pointer and then tipped in Toney Douglas' miss to cap a 9-0 run, all but ending Toronto's hopes.

The Raptors finished 11 for 22 at the free throw line.

Notes: Knicks forward Ronny Turiaf (sore left knee) missed his fourth straight game. ... Toronto's Peja Stojakovic (sore left knee) sat out for the fourth game in a row.
