Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter, Keon Clark and Dell Curry combined to score 16 points in a decisive fourth-quarter run as the Toronto Raptors posted a 102-92 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies in what could be the final all-Canadian contest.

Toronto trailed 81-78 against one of the league's worst road teams after rookie Stromile Swift sank 1-of-2 free throws for the Grizzlies with 9:48 left. But Clark's three-point play off a dunk started the run which put the Raptors ahead for good.

Carter scored six points in the surge and Clark and Curry added five each as the Raptors built a comfortable 94-83 advantage with 5:16 remaining. Vancouver got no closer than the final margin.

"I tell our guys, `Don't look at a team's record,'" Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Whether or not they will be in Vancouver or not was not in our minds. We had to focus on getting a win."

The Grizzlies went 0-for-5 from the field and committed two turnovers during the decisive run en route to their ninth straight loss. Vancouver completed an 0-8 road trip and is 1-50 all-time on the road in March.

"We had a stretch where we couldn't score any points and gave up some offensive rebounds," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "We had great looks. We just didn't score."

The rivalry between the league's only Canadian franchises could be over as the Grizzlies are expected to relocate to the United States after this season. Owner Michael Heisley must give NBA commissioner David Stern a destination Monday.

"I really don't know anything. All I know is what I read in the newspaper," Lowe said. "It's not that I don't care but we are in Vancouver. That's where we are. Until management tells me different, that's the way I approach it."

Carter was held to seven points in the first half but finished with 24, adding eight rebounds and six assists. Rookie Morris Peterson scored 20 points and Curry chipped in 16 off the bench, including nine in the fourth quarter.

The Raptors have won three of their last four games and remain tied with the Orlando Magic for the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

"It was a much-needed victory as we try to position ourselves for the playoffs," Carter said. "We need to fine tune, but a win is a win."

Curry played 18 minutes in place of injured backup Chris Childs, who is day-to-day with a sprained right index finger suffered Friday. A 3-point specialist, Curry drained one of his two from behind the arc and scored five straight points during the fourth-quarter surge.

"With Chris being banged up, I was ready to go," said Curry, who went 6-of-9 from the field. "I have a lot of confidence in my shooting."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim went 4-of-5 from the field and scored 10 of his 26 points in the second quarter as Vancouver grabbed a 52-50 lead.

Antonio Davis had 13 points and 14 rebounds and Alvin Williams had a solid all-around game with 11 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.
