Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- It hasn't taken Mark Jackson long to figure out what his new teammates like.

The 13-year veteran dished out 15 assists, none more spectacular than a no-look behind-the-back pass to Vince Carter for a dunk that capped a huge third-quarter run as the Toronto Raptors ran away to a 105-75 pounding of the Boston Celtics.

Carter scored 15 of his 23 points in the third quarter, when the Raptors turned an eight-point game into a 31-point blowout. Antonio Davis added 24 points and eight rebounds, Corliss Williamson scored 21 points and Charles Oakley grabbed 10 rebounds.

Jackson, who was signed as as free agent over the summer, had dished out 12 assists in each of the Raptors' four previous games and leads the league with 12.6 per game.

The Raptors have been slow to adjust to the loss of Tracy McGrady, and Jackson brings a completely different game. Jackson's game always has been more earthbound than McGrady's, but he brings a tradition of winning and a knowledge of how to get his teammates involved.

"Good teams get in the habit of winning and you have to get a taste of how that feels and then want it night in and night out," said Jackson, who played six years with perennial power Indiana. "I think it's a good experience for us and we look forward to next game."

The Celtics, playing without injured point guard Kenny Anderson, were led by Antoine Walker with 12 points and Paul Pierce and Vitaly Potapenko with 10 apiece.

The Raptors controlled the boards, 51-39, and harassed the Celtics into 33 percent shooting (30-of-91) from the field.

"It can't affect your defense," Celtics coach Rick Pitino said of losing Anderson. "It's team defense and you can't allow them to crush you on the glass like that. You have to do something about it. We acted like offense dictates our personality instead of defense dictating our personality."

The Raptors led almost the whole way but did not take over until the third quarter, when they ran off 15 straight points as part of a 29-6 charge, sparked by Carter.

After a quiet first half, Carter broke out for 15 points in the the third period. He hit a pair of 3-pointers in the 15-0 run, including the shot that gave Toronto a 71-48 lead with 5:16 left.

"You can't have mental lapses like that," Pierce said. "They go on the break and got lots of easy baskets, a lot of layups. We just didn't play defense tonight, especially in the third quarter, and that's what lost it."

After Potapenko halted the Raptors' run, Carter nailed a pair of jumpers to build the lead to 75-50.

Pierce made a layup, but the Raptors' barrage continued. Davis scored on a layup and Oakley connected on back-to-back jumpers, both times off assists from Jackson, giving the Raptors a 81-52 bulge with 2:28 to go in the quarter.

Celtics guard Chris Carr hit a pair of free throws, answered by a pair from Williamson, but Jackson and Carter hooked up to cap the run in style.

Newly signed Boston guard Rick Brunson threw away the ball and Jackson got out on the break. Charging down the lane, Jackson flipped a behind-the-back pass to Carter coming in on the wing, and the high-flying guard soared for a one-handed dunk.

Toronto, which blew a 21-point first half lead when the teams met in Boston on Friday, ran off the first 11 points of the fourth quarter to take its largest lead, 100-58.

"When (the lead) got to 15, 20, we continued to play the same style as if we were down by two," Carter said. "That's what we didn't have in Boston and what we didn't have in our first games. We played hard for 48 minutes."

The Raptors went on a 10-0 run after Walker had brought the Celtics within 11-10 with a 3-pointer from the left side. Williamson scored four points in the run, which Kevin Willis capped with a 16-foot jumper from the left baseline, giving Toronto a 21-10 lead with 3:17 left.

The Celtics got within one point twice in the second quarter, the last time at 39-38 when Pierce made 1-of-2 free throws with 4:17 left.

Tyrone Corbin helped Toronto close the half on an 11-2 run with a pair of rebounds, a 20-footer and a layup. When Jackson hit 1-of-2 free throws with 4.7 seconds to go, the Raptors were up 48-40.

The Raptors avenged a tough loss in Boston on Friday, when night. Pierce scored 30 points to lead the Celtics to a 93-91 victory.
