TORONTO -- Allen Iverson scored 32 points as the Philadelphia 76ers ended a two-game losing streak.
Iverson, the league's No. 3 scorer, recovered from two subpar games -- he had just five points in Thursday's loss to Detroit and went 9-for-27 from the field in Friday's loss to Atlanta -- to go 14-for-25 from the field. He added seven assists and five steals.
Vince Carter had 22 points on 10-for-13 shooting for the lottery-bound Raptors, who have lost eight of nine.
