Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Vince Carter outdueled Jalen Rose and Antonio Davis outhustled his former teammates.

Carter scored 45 points to offset a career-high 42 by Rose and Davis made the winning free throw with 1.8 seconds left in overtime to give the Toronto Raptors a 99-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

"Just two guys trying to get a win for their team," Carter said. "Shots were falling both ways. Just guys trying to get it done. ... We were just comfortable out there and just having a good time."

Carter made 17-of-30 shots as he eclipsed 40 points for the second time this season. After being held without a basket in the fourth quarter, he came alive in overtime, scoring six straight points to give Toronto a 98-96 lead in the final minute.

"He's the ultimate competitor," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "At the end he came out charged up."

Rose made 17-of-29 shots, including one on a three-point play that forced overtime. He scored all six of Indiana's points in the extra session, including a jumper with 46 seconds to play that tied the game.

"Guys were just getting me open, getting me the ball and I was just trying to be aggressive," Rose said.

Davis, who spent his first six seasons with the Pacers before being traded to the Raptors in 1999, was fouled with 1.8 seconds to go. After missing the first free throw, he made the second, which stood up when a pass for Rose was deflected away by Alvin Williams.

Davis scored 10 points and grabbed a career-high 19 rebounds, including six in overtime. His offensive board set up Carter's alley-oop dunk off a pass from Williams that gave Toronto the lead with 58 seconds left.

"They made a couple of mistakes and they're trying to get back in their rhythm and figure out their identity," Davis said. "We knew it was going to be a hard-fought game."

"We were getting rebounds -- well, Antonio was getting rebounds -- when we needed them," Carter said. "We were getting second and third chances and we capitalized and I think that hurt."

Carter fell three points shy of his season high established on November 18 against Milwaukee. Rose, who scored 40 points in a playoff game last season, surpassed his previous career high of 36 on December 9 against Charlotte.

"It would be something I could enjoy if it resulted in a victory," Rose said. "I could go home and hang from the chandelier and whatnot. But we didn't win. That's the main thing."

Corliss Williamson scored 16 points for the Raptors, who shot just 37.5 percent (33-of-88) but beat the Pacers for the third time in as many meetings this season.

Austin Croshere scored 14 points off the bench for the Pacers, who shot 46 percent (38-of-82). Indiana won the first 13 meetings with Toronto but has lost four of the last five.

"We have veteran players out on the floor, guys who played in the NBA Finals, but at the end of the game we do a lot of things to beat ourselves instead of forcing the other team to beat us," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "We do all the right things to win the game, then lose concentration and let it slip away."

Williams scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, when Carter cooled off a bit.

"Alvin is a big part of that team," Carter said. "He's had an up and down season. We tell him he can knock the shot down and he did. He really stepped up for us."

The Pacers led the entire fourth quarter until a follow shot by Williams gave the Raptors a 90-89 lead with 37 seconds left. Davis blocked a shot by Jermaine O'Neal and Williams made two free throws for a 92-89 advantage with 17 seconds to go.

Rose drove and scored on Williamson, who committed a foul with 11 seconds remaining. Rose's free throw tied it and Toronto went to Carter, who beat Derrick McKey off the dribble but had his shot blocked by O'Neal. Williams missed a running banker at the buzzer.

Rose opened overtime with a pair of baskets before Carter made two free throws, a fadeaway jumper and his dunk for the lead.

Charles Oakley grabbed nine rebounds and Mark Jackson handed out nine assists for the Raptors. Travis Best had 10 points and 10 assists for the Pacers.
