Chris Bosh made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 6.1 seconds left and finished with 29 points and 14 rebounds, leading the Toronto Raptors over the Philadelphia 76ers 106-104 in the NBA on Wednesday.

Philadelphia's Chris Webber knocked the ball away from Bosh before he retrieved it and pulled up for a 3-pointer just before the shot clock expired.

Allen Iverson had 35 points and 10 assists for the Sixers, who have dropped two straight.

Wizards 117, Pacers 91

Arenas was 14-of-20 from the field and 8-of-9 on free throws for the 21st 40-point game of his NBA career -- and second in a row at home. He was taken out shortly after making a 3-pointer to put the Wizards ahead 105-72 about a minute into the fourth quarter.

Rockets 97, Bucks 93
