Washington's second-leading scorer and the NBA leader in steals, Hughes suffered a broken right thumb in Saturday's victory over Phoenix and is out at least four weeks. The Wizards were unable to overcome the loss of their point guard in their next two games, losing by a combined 45 points.

"We're not ever going to fully imitate what Larry brings, so we just have to focus on doing what we can do," Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas said. "Jarvis (Hayes) did his thing as a starter and it put Juan in the role that Juan plays."

Dixon made 11-of-16 shots. He scored 10 points in the fourth quarter.

"A lot of teams see me as a guy who just puts the ball into the basket, but I've matured so much since last year," Dixon said. "It just means that I'm becoming a better player all around and it's something that I've worked extremely hard at this summer. Hopefully, I can keep it going."

Washington never was in danger in this one, scoring the game's first nine points and refusing to allow the lead to fall under seven the rest of the way.

"We had to come out with a lot of energy and a lot of composure," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "It was important that we stayed organized."

Jamison, who also pulled down 13 rebounds, scored 10 points in the first quarter as the Wizards closed with a 6-0 run. They began the second period in similar fashion, scoring the first eight points for a 43-20 cushion with 10:07 remaining.

After pushing the lead to 28 points later in the quarter, the Wizards cruised to the break with a season-high 65 first-half points and five players in double figures. The previous season-best was 62 against Atlanta on December 3.

It was much of the same in the second half as Arenas scored 12 of his 23 points in the third quarter to help Washington to a 93-77 advantage. Arenas made just 3-of-14 shots but sank a career-high 17 free throws on 20 attempts and added eight assists.

Hayes had 16 points and eight rebounds, Jared Jeffries added 13 and eight and Brendan Haywood 12 and nine for the Wizards, who have won their last seven home games.

Jalen Rose scored 32 points and Rafer Alston had 20 and seven assists for Toronto, which had its three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 3-19 on the road.

"You can take three or four NBA games every year on the schedule and just say, 'You know what, you're just going to play bad,'" Raptors coach Sam Mitchell said. "We started the game with no energy, just like we had that bewildered look on our face, and they jumped on us. ... We have a chance to be a decent basketball team, but this was not a good night."

After playing just three minutes in the first quarter, Rose scored nine points in the second period and added 23 in the final 24 minutes.

"When I understood that I was going to start the second half, I wanted to come out and not only get off to a good start but try to help make a run to get us back into the game," he said.
