TORONTO -- Foul trouble and ankle injuries cost the Toronto Raptors a win in the longest game in franchise history. Kyle Lowry finished with 18 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in the Raptors 134-129 triple-overtime loss to the Washington Wizards on Thursday. The Toronto point guard played 54 minutes despite an ankle sprain in his 41st minute of play and eventually fouling out. "We just ran out of time," said guard DeMar DeRozan. "All we needed is one stop, one rebound, one bucket. We just couldnt get it. They scored when they needed to, we scored when we needed to but we didnt get a stop when we needed it." DeRozan scored 34 points for Toronto (32-26), and Greivis Vasquez had a season-high 26 points and eight assists off the bench. Still, it was the sting of having to play with a banged up Lowry in the extra sessions that hurt even more than Amir Johnson and Patrick Patterson fouling out for the Raptors. At three hours 32 minutes, Thursdays game became the longest in the Raptors history. The previous mark was a 137-136 triple-overtime loss to the Brooklyn Nets in London, U.K. on March 5, 2011 which lasted 3:22. With Lowry limited by the ankle in each of the three extra sessions, John Wall stole the ball from Vasquez on back-to-back possessions with the game tied 127-127 in the third overtime, leading to four quick points by the Wizards (30-28) to give Washington a four-point lead. Wall scored 31 points and nine assists and Marcin Gortat scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as the Wizards outlasted Toronto. The Raptors were shorthanded throughout the second half of regulation in addition to the extra sessions. With 2:15 remaining in the second quarter, Terrence Ross stepped on the foot of a Wizards player and rolled his left ankle while being fouled on a layup attempt. He stayed in the game to make the free throws, but left with a little less than a minute remaining in the half and did not return. The team felt his absence, especially on the defensive end of the floor. "Losing Terrence Ross, you dont miss something until you dont have it," Casey said. "He gives us one more defender, shot maker, and that was huge for us. Especially defensively, he was doing a good job and also gave us another defender to switch around on Wall. "I liked the way the guys battled. I thought we were flat in the first half again. I liked the way we battled, even through the foul trouble and also with the injuries." DeRozan would get the Raptors within two with a pair of free throws, but a layup from Wall extended Washingtons advantage to four with 29 seconds on the clock. "Thats got to be a nightmare," Casey said of trying to stop Wall in the open court. "Hes one of the fastest guys with the ball in the league. Now youve got Gortat, one of the best screen and roll guys going down the lane, the best shooters in (Bradley) Beal and (Martell) Webster spotted up. Theyre a lethal offensive team. We couldnt make easy plays in the first half and I thought that dug us a hole a little bit and that made it tough for us in the second half." After a missed jumper from DeRozan with 24 seconds remaining, Garrett Temple clinched the victory on a free throw to put Washington up 134-129 with 21 seconds to go. Johnson, Patterson and Lowry fouled out for the Raptors. Trevor Ariza and Gortat fouled out for the Wizards. In a second overtime session with as many turnovers as field goals, Gortat calmly sank two free throws to put the Wizards ahead by two with 43 seconds remaining. DeRozan tied the game with 2.5 seconds remaining. Beal scored as the buzzer sounded, but the bucket was waved off. Reviews confirmed that Beal did not get the shot off in time. Ahead by two with 30 seconds remaining in overtime, Vasquez lost the ball to Wall who tied the game at 114 with 23 seconds remaining. Wall would block Lowrys layup attempt as time expired to force a second overtime. Back-to-back makes from Vasquez closed out Torontos scoring in regulation. Gortat tied the game at 106 with 5.2 seconds remaining and a layup by Lowry missed at the buzzer, forcing overtime. DeRozan and Lowry combined to score 22 of Torontos 24 points in the third quarter. The Raptors trailed Washington 83-78 going into the fourth. Toronto closed the half with a Lowry technical followed up by a DeRozan turnover. Washington took a 57-54 advantage into the break. It was the second missed game for Washingtons Nene who is out with a sprained MCL.

Trailing 54-44 with 7:41 remaining and needing a breakthrough against the Vikings, the brothers helped the Wildcats close with a 24-7 run including a pair of Aaron Harrison lobs inside to Willie Cauley-Stein for dunks along with a three-point play with 3:55 left to tie it at 54. After Bryn Forbes 3-pointer provided a 57-56 lead, Cauley-Stein made one of two free throws before Andrew Harrison followed with his drive and free throw. Aaron Harrison added a 3-point for a six-point lead. Andrew Harrison scored 12 as the brothers combined for 23. Julius Randle led Kentucky (5-1) with 15 points and 15 rebounds on a night the Wildcats shot just 36 per cent. Forbes 22 points led the Vikings (3-3). Cauley-Stein finished with 11 points for Kentucky, which shot just 19 of 53 from the field. Trey Lewis added 15 points and Sebastian Douglas 13 for Cleveland State, which started both halves shooting well but wilted down the stretch and was outrebounded 42-35. Kentuckys strong finish seemed unlikely late in the game as it struggled to make headway against a Vikings team that led by as many as 11 and seemed to answer every Wildcats charge with a basket that silenced the crowd. Then came the Wildcats final flourish that ended a tense game featuring five ties and six lead changes, prompting 21,067 to give the Vikings a standing ovation after the final buzzer. Kentucky was playing for the first time since last Tuesdays 29-point rout of UT Arlington, but there wasnt much down time as coach John Calipari used the break to teach his talented youngsters the finer points of defence. Besides teaching the zone, his main point was getting the Wildcats to play through the entire defensive possession instead of standing around.dddddddddddd Whatever Kentucky learned during a weekend of instruction seemed to be initially forgotten as the Wildcats all-freshmen starting line was outhustled by the Vikings, who beat them for a couple of easy baskets inside. Cleveland State leading scorer Bryn Forbes them burned them for a wide-open 3-pointer from the top of the arc because of a failed switch. The Vikings had several of those moments in making five of their first six from the field and 6 of 10 en route to a 19-12 lead that created a nervous murmur in the Rupp Arena crowd. Kentucky battled back with a 15-5 run for a 27-24 lead but Cleveland State scored the final seven points of the half thanks to Forbes three free throws after being fouled by Dominique Hawkins. That gave him and Sebastian Douglas 10 points each at the break for the Vikings, who shot just 11 of 32 (34 per cent) but outscored Kentucky 12-8 on second-chance points and matched the Wildcats in the paint (14-14). Kentucky meanwhile missed all six attempts from long range and were 7 of 26 overall (27 per cent) in the first half, a struggled that continued with a 2-of-7 start to the second half. Cleveland State meanwhile began the half strongly like the first to build its biggest lead at 44-33 with 14:11 and forcing Calipari to call timeout. The Wildcats responded to get within 47-44 with 9:21 left on two Randle free throws but the Vikings kept going at Kentucky as Trey Lewis banked a shot over two defenders while Douglas sank a 3-pointer for an eight-point lead at 52-44. Kentucky played without reserve forward Jon Hood, who sustained a head injury in Saturdays practice and is being evaluated on a daily basis. ' ' '
