TORONTO, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A season-high 25 points from Jason Kapono Wednesday helped Toronto halt a five-game losing streak with a 101-88 decision over Indiana.

It was also the first victory as Toronto's interim coach for Jay Triano, who had lost in his first three appearances.

Chris Bosh added 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Jose Calderon established a Toronto record for most consecutive free throws. He ran his current streak to 55 by making all four attempts against the Pacers. The previous record had been 51, set by Chauncey Billups in 1998.

Jermaine O'Neal played against the Pacers for the first time since being dealt to Toronto and scored 10 points with nine rebounds.

Indiana was led by Troy Murphy with 20 points and a season-best 20 rebounds. The Pacers have lost four in a row.

The Raptors used a 14-0 run in the second period and a 13-0 surge in the third to take control.
