Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- For one quarter, the Indiana Pacers looked ready to battle with the Toronto Raptors. But then Vince Carter took over and the game was over.

Carter scored 33 points as the Raptors snapped a two-game losing streak and pushed the Pacers deeper in the playoff hunt with a 102-81 victory.

"In the first half, I felt confident, in a bit of a groove." Carter said. "I wasn't forcing anything, I took the shots that were there.

"This was a big win because we are still trying to position ourselves and we are not happy with seventh place."

Indiana led 27-24 entering the second period but was outscored 23-7 to start the quarter, a run started by Carter's 3-pointer and capped by two of Keon Clark's eight points during the surge, which stretched the advantage to 47-34 with 4:04 to go.

The Pacers answered when Reggie Miller knocked down a jumper and Austin Croshere a 3-pointer during a 9-2 surge that made it 49-43 with 2:05 left. But Carter scored Toronto's last six points for a 55-45 lead at the break.

Al Harrington led the Pacers with 20 points. Reggie Miller with 18 and Jalen Rose with 16 were the only others in double figures for the Pacers, who had a two-game winning streak.

Indiana (29-37) fell into a tie with Boston for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Toronto (36-31) kept pace with Orlando (37-30) for sixth place.

"We had to be ready to focus and play to position ourselves for the playoffs and we knew they are too," Carter said, who went 4-of-5 from behind the arc. "But we wanted to make a statement and come out early. I wanted to set the tone and have everyone follow."

"Toronto finds a way to outrebound us everytime (47-41)," Rose said. "We started off pretty good but then we got content. Then, we allowed Carter to hit three 3-pointers. It's very frustrating being as close as we were last year and struggling to make the eighth spot this year."

Toronto opened its largest lead in garbage time as Dell Curry hit a bucket with 29 seconds left for a 102-79 advantage.

Former Pacer Antonio Davis opened an 11-1 run with a thunderous dunk that got the crowd riled up. It was capped when rookie Morris Peterson hit a jumper to give Toronto a 19-point lead with 5:28 to play in the third quarter.

Clark had 14 points and four blocks off the bench and Davis 11 and four for Toronto, which shot 50 percent (39-of-78).

The closest Indiana came was when Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens was called for a technical foul and Rose converted three free throws to cut the lead to 81-72 to open the final quarter.

"Vince Carter's ability to hit 3-pointers in ther first half really hurt us," Pacer coach Isiah Thomas said. "We had a hand in his face but he was just catching and shooting."

After Carter took a seat for good, Toronto ran away with a 16-3 burst that saw Rose foul out and Miller head to the bench for the remainder of the game. Tracy Murray hit a 3-pointer with 4:09 to play for a 97-75 cushion.

Indiana shot 37 percent (31-of-83) and was outscored 34-24 in the paint.
