NEW YORK (AP) - Andrea Bargnani scored 23 points, Chris Bosh had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Toronto Raptors extended their winning streak to six with a 102-95 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

Shawn Marion added 12 points and 13 boards for the Raptors, who stayed alive in what is almost certainly a too little, too late run at an Eastern Conference playoff spot. Toronto would have been eliminated with a loss and a victory by Chicago.

Instead, the Raptors eliminated the Knicks, who haven’t made the postseason since 2004.

Al Harrington and Chris Duhon each scored 22 points for the Knicks, who tumbled out of playoff contention with a disappointing finish to Mike D’Antoni’s first season. New York has lost four straight and 10 of its last 11 games.
