TORONTO – Damon Stoudamire scored 19 points and Eddie Jones had 18 to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 92-66 rout of the NBA-worst Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

Chris Bosh had 15 points for the Raptors, who fell to 1-15 after losing their sixth straight.

Pau Gasol added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have won three straight and eight of 10. Memphis never trailed and led by as many as 29.

Fans booed the Raptors off the court at halftime, at end of the third quarter and at the final buzzer. Attendance was a season-low 14,993.

Toronto’s Jalen Rose, earning $15.6 million this season, did not start for the second straight game and finished with just two points in 12 minutes.

Bosh, faced with double teams, went 5-for-16 from the field. Toronto shot 35 percent (25-for-72), compared to Memphis’ 51 percent (37-for-73).

“That was disgraceful. It really is,” one fan said before leaving her courtside seat.

The Grizzlies committed eight turnovers in the third quarter, but Toronto couldn’t take advantage as they were outscored 15-14 in the period.

Jones’ 3-pointer, Stoudamire’s layup and 3-point play gave Memphis a 29-point lead with 2:40 left in the third.

Jones had 11 points in the first quarter, and Memphis went on a 16-0 run in the first half. Toronto cut the lead to 12 in the second quarter, but Memphis followed with a 10-0 run capped by consecutive 3-pointers by Stoudamire.

Shane Battier’s 3-pointer gave the Grizzlies a 23-point lead at halftime.

Notes: The game featured the only two Spaniards in the NBA – Gasol and Toronto’s Jose Calderon. They were teammates for five years on Spain’s national team … The Raptors now go on a three-game road trip beginning Friday at Atlanta, the NBA’s second-worst team. … Mike James, Toronto’s starting shooting guard, was scoreless on 0-for-7 shooting from the field.
