GAME RECAP

Keith Van Horn scored half of his 24 points in the first quarter as the New Jersey Nets built a 10-point lead and never looked back in a 130-115 rout of the undermanned Toronto Raptors.

Van Horn also had seven of his 12 rebounds in the opening quarter as New Jersey closed the period with a 13-2 run. Jayson Williams finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds and Sherman Douglas scored 16 off the bench for the Nets, who pushed the lead to 14 late in the second quarter and were never challenged.

"We took care of business," said Van Horn, who leads all rookies in scoring. "We obviously didn't play our best game, but any win is a good win. We're just trying to get our minds off the trades and get back to playing basketball. We got a lot of rest tonight. If teams don't care if they win or lose, they're sometimes harder to play against than teams that do care. I think that was the case tonight."

John Wallace had 29 points and 12 rebounds for Toronto, which had just seven healthy bodies -- and a new head coach -- because of a blockbuster trade earlier in the day and an injury to Marcus Camby.

Prior to the contest, the Raptors shipped disgruntled point guard Damon Stoudamire and forwards Walt Williams and Carlos Rogers to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for point guard Kenny Anderson, guard Alvin Williams and forward Gary Trent, plus two first-round picks and an undisclosed amount of cash.

The trade also coincided with the resignation of head coach Darrell Walker, who was replaced by assistant coach Butch Carter. One bright spot for the Raptors was the play of teenage rookie Tracy McGrady, who scored a career-high 22 points, and second-year guard Shawn Respert, who scored 20 -- also a personal best.

"We weren't prepared to play today, both as a team and a coaching staff," said Carter. "As a coach, I got tied up all day with interviews addressing our current situation and consoling players."

"It was a relief to get this all over with," Wallace said. "Now that the deal is done, we can go out and try to salvage what is left of the season. Kenny (Anderson) is a great point guard. He can penetrate inside and he moves the ball well."

New Jersey, which has won three straight overall and seven in a row at home, moved a season-high eight games over .500. The Nets set a season high with 41 points in the third quarter and 72 in a half.

Toronto led 17-16 following a fastbreak layup by McGrady with 4:05 to go in the first quarter. But Van Horn had a tip and two free throws to put New Jersey on top 20-17. Kendall Gill added a free throw and Van Horn sank two more from the line to push the lead to six.

Williams had a dunk and Douglas sandwiched a pair of baskets around a dunk by Toronto's Doug Christie to give the Nets a 29-19 advantage at the end of a quarter. Toronto was just 8-of-23 from the field in the quarter and got outrebounded 16-8.

Toronto was able to get the deficit to single digits just once in the second quarter, when a three-point play by Christie cut the Nets' lead to 55-46. But David Benoit answered with a three-pointer for New Jersey, which led 58-48 at the break.

Chris Gatling led the Nets' reserves with eight points and five rebounds in the second quarter. New Jersey made 26-of-50 shots in the first half and enjoyed a 32-17 advantage on the boards.

The Nets opened the third quarter with nine straight points -- five by Gill and four by Van Horn -- to push the lead to 67-48 with 10:23 left. The lead grew to 22 as New Jersey made 17-of-26 shots in the quarter.

The three players Toronto acquired were unable to play after appearing for the Trail Blazers against the Suns in Phoenix on Thursday. Camby missed the game with a sprained right thumb.
