New York, NY (Sports Network) - Wilson Chandler set a career-high with 32 points to lead the New York Knicks in a 127-97 rout of the Toronto Raptors, spoiling Chris Bosh's return to the court, in the front end of a home-and-home set.
Bosh had missed Toronto's previous five games with a sprained right knee, but returned to record 12 points and nine rebounds in 30:52 of playing time in defeat.
Chandler also set a career-high by going 6-of-10 from three-point range for the Knicks, who have won two in a row on the heels of a six-game slide. David Lee recorded his 18th double-double in a row with 24 points and 15 rebounds.
Nate Robinson added 26 points, seven assists and five boards in 27:54 for the Knicks, who were without their two new acquisitions, forward Larry Hughes and center Chris Wilcox.
Joey Graham totaled a team-best 19 points for the Raptors, who have dropped two in a row. Shawn Marion chipped in 14 points and 12 boards in defeat. Andrea Bargnani donated 18 points and Jason Kapono 14 for the Raptors.
A Chris Duhon-to-Chandler alley-oop closed out a 9-0 New York run that opened the game; the Knicks parlayed that lead into a 42-22 cushion after the first quarter. The Knicks were then on top, 75-50, heading into the break.
Two free throws from Robinson and two from Chandler gave the Knicks an 88-56 lead midway through the third quarter.
Moments later, Al Harrington's three-pointer opened a 98-60 lead for the home team.
