SACRAMENTO, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- A steal by Jermaine O'Neal with 21 seconds left Friday halted Sacramento's hopes of ending its losing streak and preserved Toronto's 107-101 win over the Kings.

Sacramento trailed by four and had the ball after Toronto's Chris Bosh had missed a jumper with 33 seconds to play.

O'Neal, however, stole it from John Salmons, leading to two free throws by Jose Calderon that clinched the Raptors' second straight victory. The Kings have lost five in a row.

O'Neal scored 36 points, hitting 15-of-19 from the field. Calderon added 16 points and Andrea Bargnani had 14.

Sacramento was led by Salmons and Brad Miller with 20 each.
