NEW YORK, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- DeMar DeRozan and Andrea Bargnani put in 21 points apiece Monday, helping the Toronto Raptors hold off New York 90-85.

Rasual Butler had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Toronto, which looked like it had the game in hand after posting a 51-34 lead at the half. New York got hot after the break, with Carmelo Anthony scoring 17 of his 35 points in the late going to make it close.

Anthony grabbed 11 rebounds while Toney Douglas added 22 points, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Knicks' third loss in four games.
