The Toronto Raptors' losing streak now stands at five games after a 109-101 home court loss to the red-hot Utah Jazz on Sunday afternoon.

The Raptors (23-41) carried a six-point lead into the fourth-quarter, surrendering it to the Jazz with about six minutes to go when an Andrei Kirilenko layup made it 94-93.

Chris Bosh contributed a double-double, posting 30 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort, while Andrea Bargnani netted 20 points and seven boards but was silent in the fourth quarter.

Regarding their five-game slide and dismal home record (12-18), Bosh told reporters: "I'm just looking at the next game. I don't care to define a loss anymore.

"[The Jazz] are the best team in the league right now, but it really doesn't matter who we play — we are trying to win games."

Utah outscored the Raptors 28-14 in the final quarter to take control.

Shawn Marion said it was because of a lack of consistency when the Raptors were leading that cost his team the game.

"We couldn't get the stops when we needed to," said Marion, who finished up with eight points. "We were doing everything we needed to keep control of this game. Once we got the lead, everything went out the window.

"In order for us to sustain what we were doing, I think we need to be aggressive at both ends and we stopped doing it."

Jazz guard Deron Williams led the charge for Utah with 25 points, while Mehmet Okur and Paul Millsap grabbed 11 rebounds each and posted 19 and 18 points, respectively.

With the win, the Jazz (40-23) will continue their five-game Eastern Conference road trip on a high note. Utah moved into a tie with the Denver Nuggets atop the Northwest division. Their 11-game winning streak is the team's longest in 10 seasons.

They also did it without the services of forward Carlos Boozer, who sat out with a sore ankle. Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said Boozer was hurt during Friday's 97-91 home win against Denver.

Boozer is averaging 16.9 points and 10.9 rebounds in 18 games.

Toronto's next game is Wednesday in Philadelphia (7 p.m. ET), while Utah plays at Indiana on Tuesday.
