Raptors 98 Bobcats 79

Story body

TORONTO (AP) -- The Toronto Bobcats were able to cruise to a 98-79 win over Charlotte despite playing without their three top players. Kris Humphries and Carlos Delfino scored 17 points apiece to compensate for the absence of Chris Bosh, Andrea Bargnani and T.J. Ford. Bosh was out with a strained groin, Bargnani was sidelined by a hyperextended left knee and Ford sat out with a left thumb injury. Six Raptors scored at least 10 points in their fourth straight home win. Jose Calderon finished with 12 points and nine assists for Toronto, which led by 21 at halftime. Gerald Wallace scored 19 points and rookie Jared Dudley added 16 and 10 rebounds for Charlotte. The Bobcats have dropped six straight since a 6-and-4 start. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press.
