TORONTO, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Carlos Boozer netted 20 points and Jimmy Butler provided a key blocked shot in the final seconds Wednesday, lifting the Chicago Bulls over Toronto 94-92.

The Raptors had their three-game winning streak snapped despite 32 points from DeRozan.

Kyle Lowry supplied 16 points, seven assists and five rebounds.
