PHOENIX, March 7 (UPI) -- DeMar DeRozan led a balanced Toronto attack Wednesday that sent the Raptors steadily pulling away for a 98-71 crushing of Phoenix.

Toronto ended a five-game losing streak with what was only its ninth road win of the season in 31 chances.

DeRozan scored 15 points, Amir Johnson had 14 and Sebastian Telfair added 13 for the Raptors, who suffered 21 turnovers in a sloppy game while forcing 28.

Phoenix had won three straight contests, but shot only 37 percent against the Raptors and made a mere eight free throws. Marcus Morris was the lone Phoenix player in double figures with 12 points.
