It was the fewest points scored in any quarter by the Raptors - who went more than 8 1/2 minutes without a point until rookie Chris Jefferies made a layup with 38 seconds remaining - and the fewest allowed in any period by the Spurs.

After Jelani McCoy hit a jumper in the paint to open the fourth quarter and get the Raptors within 70-68, Claxton hit a jumper, Duncan a turnaround jump hook and Claxton a reverse layup to jump-start the game-closing run.

Steve Kerr nailed a 3-pointer to make it 86-70 with 4:12 to play, forcing Toronto to call timeout. When play resumed, Claxton appeared to hurt his right shoulder diving for a loose ball. He left the game and did not return.

Duncan had 22 points and 15 rebounds, Tony Parker scored 12 points and Kerr and Malik Rose 11 apiece for the Spurs, who shot 45 percent (34-of-75) from the field and limited the Raptors to 31 percent (25-of-81).

Vince Carter paced Toronto with 18 points and had a couple of spectacular dunks but shot just 5-of-21. Offseason acquisition Voshon Lenard scored 17 points but just two in the second half.
