Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers never lost track of Vince Carter, but the Toronto Raptors did.

The 76ers held Carter scoreless for the first 10 minutes of the fourth quarter as they rallied for a 104-98 victory over the Raptors in their home opener.

Allen Iverson scored 24 points for Philadelphia, which defeated Toronto for the sixth straight time. But it was fellow guards Eric Snow and Aaron McKie and forward George Lynch who shut down the explosive Carter.

"We got it done and got stops when we needed to," Lynch said. "Everybody wants to see Vince do something spectacular. We're a defensive team and we don't want to see our teammates get embarrassed. We play well together, we help each other out and that's what it's going to take to win. We're not going to let somebody come in and have a big night against us. We just look out for one another."

Carter scored 25 points but just four in the final period, when the Raptors went scoreless for over five minutes. He did not score in the fourth quarter until making a tough drive with 1:45 left that cut the deficit to 93-89.

"Other people were scoring," Carter said. "You have to go the hot man. It's not all about me. It's a team thing."

Toronto never got any closer as Theo Ratliff and Iverson hit baskets and Philadelphia sank 7-of-8 free throws in the final minute to improve to 2-0. The Sixers were 7-of-12 from the line through three quarters and 12-of-16 in the final period.

Carter made his first six shots but was just 3-of-13 thereafter. In the fourth quarter, he was 1-of-6 as the Raptors could not get him untracked, instead going inside to Antonio Davis, who scored nine of his 18 points in the fourth quarter.

"They were in the penalty so that's just smart basketball," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "They were in the foul trouble and the penalty and Antonio delivered for us. I wanted to go at them and have the other guys be patient."

"The biggest thing right now is trying to understand each other down the stretch," Carter said. "Sometimes, we're trying to think for the other person, and we have a lot of mixups. In due time it will get better."

In addition to slowing down Carter, Snow scored 16 points, McKie added 11 and Lynch grabbed nine rebounds.

Tyrone Hill had 12 points and 10 rebounds and Toni Kukoc scored 11 off the bench for Philadelphia. Mark Jackson had 16 points and 12 assists and Kevin Willis scored 12 points for Toronto.

"I've always said that it's going to be better for the team if we get five of six guys involved," Kukoc said. "We are playing good basketball right now. It's early, but if we continue to play like this, it's going to be good for us."

"It's been a total team effort," Iverson said. "A lot of people have said that we can't win a championship unless I do it by myself. They hear stuff like that and feed off it. No one feels better than me seeing those guys do what they do on the court."

The Raptors cut a six-point deficit to 75-73 entering the fourth quarter and a jump hook by Willis gave them their first lead since the second quarter at 81-79 with 9:20 to play.

But Toronto went scoreless for the next 5:06, missing eight straight shots. Iverson and Hill each had two baskets in a 9-0 spurt that gave Philadelphia an 88-81 lead with 4:35 remaining.

"We had some really good shots and we missed them," Wilkens said. "We just could not make a shot in that one stretch. They were good shots and the ball just didn't go down for us."

Davis made three jumpers around two free throws by Iverson to pull Toronto within 90-87 with 2:57 left. But McKie answered with a three-point play 50 seconds later before Carter finally scored.

The Sixers shot 48 percent (41-of-85) and limited Toronto to 45 percent (39-of-86). They blocked 10 shots, five by center Theo Ratliff.

Carter came out on fire, scoring 15 points on 6-of-6 shooting in the first quarter. His 3-pointer gave Toronto a 31-21 lead late in the period.

Trailing 43-36, the Sixers went on a 16-2 burst that featured points from six players, including three from Nazr Mohammed. The reserve center played only in garbage time in Tuesday's 101-72 win at New York.

Snow's basket made it 52-45 with 2:16 left and Philadelphia held a 59-53 advantage at halftime.

"It was hard to keep the focus," Iverson said. "We went down a little bit, then we brought ourselves back up and were able to win the game. That's the most important thing, regardless of how sloppy the game was."
