Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Mark Jackson made his return to Indiana and Jalen Rose returned to the Pacers' lineup, but Vince Carter overshadowed both in leading the Toronto Raptors to their first win here.

Carter scored 28 points and Kevin Willis added 23 off the bench as the Raptors used a decisive second-quarter run and coasted to a 111-91 rout of the slumping Pacers, who have lost four in a row for the first time in nearly seven years.

After managing just 11 points in the opening quarter, Toronto caught fire and outscored Indiana in the second, 35-19. Carter had nine points in the period as the Raptors closed with a 13-0 run to take a 46-36 halftime lead they never relinquished.

"We got off to kind of a slow start, but this win was a good step for our team growth," Carter said. "I don't think we are the kind of team that can let teams pull away, then catch up and win. We've been successful a couple of times this year, but that's not a situation we want to be in."

Jackson, who spent parts of six seasons with the Pacers before signing a four-year deal with Toronto over the summer, enjoyed his return. The veteran point guard collected 11 points, eight assists and six rebounds for the Raptors, who improved to 1-9 all-time at Indiana.

"It was a special night being Thanksgiving, with the country watching, coming back to a place where I have a lot of fond memories and developed a lot of great relationships," Jackson said.

Rose made his season debut for the Pacers after missing the first 10 games with a broken left wrist suffered during the preseason. The versatile swingman played 39 minutes and had 16 points, seven assists and six rebounds but shot only 5-of-17 from the floor.

"Not exactly the comeback game of the year," he said. "Anytime you haven't played in a long time, there is going to be time for adjustments. Unfortunately, my adjustment was in front of everybody."

Reggie Miller scored 20 points for the Pacers, who are in the midst of their longest skid since losing five straight from January 21-27, 1994.

While Toronto seems to have shaken off its early-season doldrums, the Pacers have hit the skids since a five-game winning streak.

The Raptors are 6-2 since opening the campaign with three losses and have topped 100 points in five of their last six victories.

Indiana has lost three straight at home for the first time since a four-game skid in April 1997. The Pacers posted an NBA-best 36-5 record at Conseco Fieldhouse in 1999-00 and did not suffer their third home loss until the 63rd game of the season.

"We have got to respond to these losses because this is not acceptable," Rose said. "In my opinion, tomorrow night (at home against Washington) is a must-win. We can't have them coming into our court and beating up on us. We must show more heart and not let down in any quarters. Better effort, better results."

Carter added 12 points and Willis contributed 10 in the third quarter as ther Raptors stretched the lead to 85-63 entering the final period.

Leading 76-63 with 1:22 remaining in the third, Jackson made two free throws to ignite a 9-0 spurt that included the ejection of first-year Pacers coach Isiah Thomas.

Willis gave the Raptors their largest lead, 91-66, on a pair of free throws early in the fourth and Dell Curry matched it with a 3-pointer at the 2:43 mark that made it 107-82.

Antonio Davis, another former Pacer, had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Toronto, which shot 49 percent (39-of-80) from the field, converted 28-of-37 free throws and held a 46-35 rebounding edge.

Travis Best collected 19 points and seven assists for Indiana, which shot 46 percent (36-of-79) and was 15-of-15 from the line.
