TORONTO – Jarrett Jack had 22 points, a career-high nine rebounds and eight assists and the Portland Trail Blazers won without suspended forward Zach Randolph, 93-83 over the Toronto Raptors.

Martell Webster added 22 points and eight rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who won for just the second time in nine games.

Randolph made an obscene gesture to Pacers fans in Indiana on Friday and Blazers management responded by suspending him for one game and fining him. LaMarcus Aldridge, the No. 2 pick in the draft, started in place of Randolph and had three points and three rebounds.

Toronto was playing without All-Star Chris Bosh (bruised left knee). Andrea Bargnani, the No. 1 pick in the draft, replaced Bosh and had eight points and three rebounds in his first start.

Jack called his performance terrible after he had five turnovers and just six points in Friday’s loss. He rebounded against Toronto – making his first seven shots and finishing 9-for-15 from the field. The second-year point guard had 30 points and 10 assists in a victory over Milwaukee on Wednesday before struggling against Indiana.

Morris Peterson had 23 points for the Raptors, who were outrebounded 56-34 without Bosh, who’s third in the NBA in rebounding.

The Raptors, who have lost three straight, lacked energy and shot just 35 percent.

Fans booed after Portland’s Jamaal Magloire made two free throws to give the Trail Blazers a 15-point lead with just over four minutes left.

Toronto cut the lead to seven with less than two minutes left, but Juan Dixon made two free throws with 52.1 seconds remaining. Peterson followed with a 22-foot-jumper with 47.8 seconds left, but Webster made two more from the line.

After Toronto’s T.J. Ford made a 3-pointer, Jack made two free throws to make it 91-83 with 41 seconds left.

Dixon finished with 16 points.

Jack scored 12 points in the first quarter and Webster had 11 in the second quarter as Portland led 50-41 at halftime.

Notes: Bosh injured the knee in Friday’s game in Chicago and it swelled up on Saturday. He’s day-to-day. Bosh is averaging 20.5 points and 12.2 rebounds, but has been bothered by a variety of injuries this season. … Identical twins Joey and Stephen Graham went scoreless. Joey played seven minutes for Toronto while Stephen played three minutes for Portland. … Bargnani returned after missing Friday’s game with a sore back.
