Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Not even a sprained left ankle can keep Vince Carter from taking over a game.

Injured in the third quarter, Carter came back to score 11 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as the surging Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors, 85-78, for their ninth win in 10 games.

Carter suffered the injury with 6:40 left in the third quarter when he stepped on teammate Charles Oakley's foot. He sat out the rest of the quarter and returned with 10:40 left in the game to provide a spark for his team.

"I was going off the advice of the trainer and the doctor," Toronto coach Butch Carter said. "It's Vince's call and the trainer's. I don't ask guys to play hurt. I was ready to try to win the game without him."

The Raptors trailed by five entering the fourth quarter but used a decisive 22-5 run, led by Carter's eight points, to take a 78-68 advantage with 4:37 to play.

Carter had three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, including two in the decisive fourth-quarter burst. He finished 7-of-14 from the field.

"It hurt pretty bad, but I still wanted to go out and give it a try," Vince Carter said. "I knew my driving would be limited, so I wanted to create enough space to get off a shot. They played us hard but we stayed together and executed down the stretch."

A 3-pointer by Golden State's Billy Owens cut the deficit to 83-78 with 57 seconds remaining but a dunk by Tracy McGrady with 44 seconds left sealed the win.

"He just shoots, and shoots the ball well," said Golden State coach Garry St. Jean on Carter. "He won the game for them in the second half. He's got a presence about him that great players have. He has the ability to simply create shots."

McGrady sank a career-high 12 free throws and had 20 points for Toronto, which shot 63 percent (12-of-19) in the fourth quarter after shooting 32 percent over the first three periods.

Larry Hughes had 25 points and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which suffered its seventh straight loss and was eliminated from playoff contention for the sixth straight season.

Toronto led 26-24 after the first quarter but Golden State went on an 18-8 run to open the second period, building an eight-point lead. Erick Dampier and Donyell Marshall had four each in the surge, with Mookie Blaylock's 3-pointer capping the run at 42-34 with 2:34 to play.

The Raptors shot under 17 percent (3-of-18) in the quarter as Golden State grabbed a 45-39 halftime lead. Both teams shot 44 percent (7-of-16) in the third quarter as the Warriors took a 61-56 advantage to the final period.

Oakley had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Kevin Willis played 40 minutes in place of starting center Antonio Davis and had 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting and a season-high 15 rebounds. Davis was placed on the injured list before the game with a strained right calf.

"The veterans were great," Vince Carter said. "Kevin was really good and Charles made a shot when he needed it. Kevin has earned his minutes. He understands the stretch drive and gets himself ready to play."

The Raptors shot 44 percent (29-of-72), including 6-of-12 from 3-point range.

Marshall scored 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Dampier contributed 11 points for Golden State, which held a 47-44 edge on the boards but shot just 38 percent (34-of-90).
