Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Antonio Davis scored a career-high 31 points and Vince Carter added 21 as the Toronto Raptors used an explosive fourth quarter to rally for a 108-100 victory over Orlando Magic.

With Davis and Carter leading the way, the Raptors erased an 80-71 deficit by outscoring Orlando, 37-20, in the final period, when they made five of their seven 3-pointers.

The Raptors shot 60 percent (12-of-20) in the quarter, including 5-of-8 from 3-point range. Dell Curry came off the bench to score all eight of his points in the period.

"I have to give us a lot of credit as a group," said Davis, who also grabbed 13 rebounds. "Sometimes, it is tough coming into these situations and do the right thing. We have a lot of guys who care about the game, who care about each other."

Toronto salvaged the final game of the three-game season series with Orlando and jumped two games ahead of the Magic in the battle for playoff position. The Raptors also moved into second place in the Central Division, one game ahead of the Charlotte Hornets.

"This (Orlando) is a playoff team," Carter said. "This is the kind of game we need if we want to win any games on the road (in the playoffs)."

Former Raptor Tracy McGrady, who is still hobbled by a strained right quadriceps, scored 20 points for the Magic, including 10 in the final period.

"It was a big loss," said Orlando guard Mike Miller, who scored 17 points. "It doesn't matter if we played well until the fourth quarter if we only score 20 points. It's going to come back and haunt us, probably. We've just got to continue to play and worry about the next game going up."

"I thought we came out in the third quarter with a starting unit having energy," Orlando coach Doc Rivers added. "However, it looked like down the stretch that Toronto wanted it more than us tonight and that is rare for us because we have been a team that worked hard every night."

It marked the first time that Carter beat McGrady, his distant cousin and teammate in Toronto the previous two seasons. McGrady, a Florida native, signed with Orlando as a free agent in the offseason.

On Sunday, McGrady made his first appearance in Toronto since joining the Magic, scoring 24 points in a 104-101 victory.

On Friday, Orlando appeared to take control late in the third quarter, outscoring Toronto, 21-8, over the final 6:15 of the period to take an 80-71 lead into the final 12 minutes.

"We were all upset," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "I was upset. I felt we had to light a fire and we had to come out with greater intensity and not feel sorry for ourselves. And we did that and all of a sudden our intensity went way up."

Toronto got hot from outside as Carter, Curry and Chris Childs made consecutive 3-pointers in a 46-second span. The 9-0 spurt allowed the Raptors to take an 84-83 lead with 9:06 to play.

"We are just trying to get ready for the playoffs," Childs said. "The first three quarters, our defense was terrible."

The game seesawed before Orlando took its final lead, 89-88, on McGrady's two foul shots with 7:33 to play. Orlando tied it for the final time, 93-93, on Troy Hudson's layup with 5:27 to go.

Toronto took the lead for good, 96-93, on Childs' 3-pointer with 5:04 remaining. Down 104-100, Orlando had a chance to get within two, but McGrady's jumper from the right baseline went in and out with 38 seconds left.

Alvin Williams and Carter each hit a pair of free throws in the final 29 seconds to clinch the victory.

"We played harder (in the fourth quarter)," Carter said. "It's simple. We had the worst third quarter of the season."

Toronto shot 46 percent (41-of-89) from the field while Orlando shot 49 percent (40-of-82).
