Raps' Anunoby, Wright out versus Rockets

Lowry went 7 for 9 from three-point range overall and had six assists while DeMar DeRozan added 23 points and seven rebounds. James Harden led all scorers with 38 points, making a ideal 19-for-19 from the free throw line in the loss.

Raptors: G Deion Wright left the game with a sprained big toe on his right foot, and F OG Anunoby was out with a sprained right ankle. This is the earliest date Toronto has ever qualified for the postseason and the fewest number of games played (64) to qualify.

DeRozan put the Raptors back up by two with a jump shot with 1:49 remaining and the Rockets wouldn't get as close again. This was a season-high in assists for Lowry, and it snapped a streak of 446 consecutive games for Toronto without a player reaching 15+ assists.

The skeptics could be proven right if the Raptors flame out in the playoffs and fail to come out of the Eastern Conference, but there is a justified buzz around this team as the post-season approaches.

TORONTO (AP) - After 17 consecutive wins, Houston star James Harden wasn't going to let one little loss spoil his outlook.

Harden scored 40 points but the Rockets lost for the first time since January 27 at New Orleans.

Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Raptors won their seventh straight in a matchup between the respective conference leaders. It has been all but impossible to stop him this year, so the Raptors will do their best to slow him. After the break, though, Harden erupted, scoring 26 of his 40 points in the second half and attempting to carry the Rockets back into the mix.
