TORONTO (AP) _ All-Star starter Kyle Lowry put up 29 points before leaving with an injury in the final minutes and Toronto downed Washington for its ninth straight win, matching a franchise-best mark.

Lowry left and went up the tunnel toward the Raptors locker room with what appeared to be an injured hand with just under four minutes to go in the fourth quarter. He briefly returned before trainers escorted him back under the stands.

Jonas Valanciunas had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Raptors while DeMar DeRozan had 17 points and Terrence Ross added 15 points off the bench.

John Wall led the way for the Wizards with 18 points and 14 assists.
