Bosh powers Raptors past Philly

SHARE Bosh powers Raptors past Philly

Chris Bosh made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 6.1 seconds left and finished with 29 points and 14 rebounds, leading the Toronto Raptors to a 106-104 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philadelphia's Chris Webber knocked the ball away from Bosh before he retrieved it and pulled up for a 3-pointer just before the shot clock expired — drawing laughter from his teammates and coach Sam Mitchell. Bosh made his first 3-pointer of the season earlier in the game.

The All-Star forward made it a point to work on his 3-point shooting last summer.

Allen Iverson had 35 points and 10 assists for the Sixers, who have dropped two straight after winning their first three games of the season. Philadelphia lost to Indiana on Tuesday night.

Andre Iguodala missed a long jumper at the buzzer that could have tied it. Samuel Dalembert had 18 rebounds and 13 points before fouling out with 57 seconds left.

Bosh's jump hook as he faded away from the basket gave Toronto a 100-98 lead. Dalembert fouled out on the play, but Bosh missed the free throw.

Iverson followed with an 18-foot jumper to tie it.

Toronto's T.J. Ford followed with a layup, but Webber made a short hook shot to tie it at 102 with 29 seconds to go.

After a timeout, Ford passed the ball to Bosh. Webber knocked it away, but Bosh recovered and hit his big shot.

Jose Calderon made just one of two free throws — giving Philadelphia a chance to tie — but Iguodala couldn't connect.

Toronto won despite shooting 40 percent. Philadelphia shot 49 percent and outrebounded the Raptors 53-45.
