Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Vince Carter scored 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Toronto Raptors survived a late scare to hold on for a 98-95 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Carter, who will represent the Raptors in next Sunday's NBA All-Star game, reached the 30-point plateau for the 10th time this season, setting a new franchise record.

Glenn Robinson, who scored 29 points, missed the potential tying 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds remaining to preserve the Raptors' first victory in Milwaukee since April 9, 1996 -- a span of seven games.

Bucks forward Tim Thomas hit two free throws to cut the deficit to 98-95 with 7.6 seconds to play but Toronto's Charles Oakley then made a foolish play, attemting to throw a long inbounds pass to Carter, that was intercepted by Ray Allen in the backcourt. Allen fed Robinson, whose bomb from the left elbow clanged off the rim.

"There's some sense of personal relief," Raptors coach Butch Carter said regarding the victory. "We knew they were coming off a West Coast trip and they were a little sluggish, especially in the first half."

There was no sign of animosity left over from the heated home-and-away series the teams played on January 14-15.

After Allen was awarded the last spot on the United States Olympic team, Carter scored a franchise-record 47 points to lead the Raptors to a 115-110 victory over the Bucks on January 14. Allen had his nose accidentally bloodied by Carter in the first half and tempers flared.

The following night, Allen responded with a 33-point performance as the Bucks beat up the Raptors, 118-97.

"It was disappointing that we came home on a great high and didn't play well," Allen said, referring to their recent 3-2 road trip which featured two buzzer-beating victories. "We have to play hard from start to finish, not just one half."

Carter gave the Raptors an 82-69 lead on a driving layup with 7:16 to play. But Robinson nailed a 16-footer, Sam Cassell converted a 3-point play and Allen hit a short jumper to cut the deficit to 82-76 at the 6:13 mark.

The Bucks pulled within three points on three occassions in the final minute, but Toronto was able to convert their free throws down the stretch and moved past Milwaukee into a second-place tie with Charlotte in the Central Division.

"The Bucks are a very good team, they shoot the ball well," Raptors guard Dell Curry said. "They're in front of their home crowd and you knew they were going to make a run. You still have to keep your head. We played aggressive and we didn't let it get out of hand. Towards the end, we made our free throws."

Curry scored 16 points, Antonio Davis added 12 and Tracy McGrady had 12 off the bench for the Raptors, who shot 42 percent (37-of-88) from the floor and were outrebounded 54-47.

Cassell finished with 25 points, Allen had 12 and 10 rebounds and Thomas provided a spark off the bench with 16 points. The Bucks shot 41 percent (35-of-86), including an uncharacteristic 1-of-14 from 3-point range. Milwaukee entered the game with the fifth-best 3-point shooting percentage (37.7 percent) in the league.

"It disappointing coming out as flat as we did," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We had wide open shots and just didn't hit them. We have to forget about this one -- we have big games coming up."
