Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter scored 27 points to lead five players in double figures as the Toronto Raptors won their third straight game following a season-high four-game skid, an emotional 83-76 victory over the lowly Miami Heat.

Moments before the game, Raptors assistant coach Stan Albeck suffered a stroke and was taken to St. Michael's Hospital for tests.

"Of course, you're worried about him, but not having him on the bench doesn't change our strategy," said Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens, who has worked with Albeck for the last six seasons. "I just have to make sure that the other coaches know what I'm looking for."

Carter was 11-of-25 from the field and had 10 rebounds and six assists to help Toronto hand the Heat their third loss in a row and fifth in six games.

"It is a tough situation when you know you have a game to play, but you want to be around to give your support," Carter said. "I'm just playing and taking what I can get. You start inside and work your way out."

Antonio Davis added 12 points and 10 rebounds, Dell Curry had 12 points and Alvin Williams chipped in 11, nine rebounds and seven assists for Toronto, which held Miami to an opponent season-low 76 points.

"They are the most talented team in the Eastern Conference," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "They are built for the playoffs. They are going to be the team to beat in the Eastern Conference."

Davis scored the first basket of the second half to extend the Raptors' advantage to 45-34, and Miami never got within single digits until the final minute of the game. Toronto took its largest lead, 78-59, on a jumper by Keon Clark with 4:39 remaining.

Jim Jackson had 12 points to lead the Heat, who have not scored 100 points in any game this season. Eddie Jones finished with 11 and was the only other player in double figures for Miami, which shot just under 39 percent (28-of-72).

"We can't seem to generate enough offense," Riley said. "It was the fourth consecutive game we converted under 40 percent. We missed a ton of opportunities in the first quarter -- layups and jump shots. It is very disconcerting."

"Everybody on this team has a lack of confidence right now, but everyone has that swagger," Jones added. "We just have to go out for 48 minutes and put it together."

Neither team shot well from the arc. Toronto made just 4-of-16 3-pointers and Miami 2-of-12.

Toronto missed its first nine shots and fell behind, 8-2, but quickly recovered and took the lead for good on a layup by Carter that made it 21-20 at the end of the first quarter.

"It was OK because we were aggressive," Wilkens said. "If we missed nine and we're lackadaisical, that would not be good. We were aggressive, pushed the ball down the floor and got good looks."

"It was going both ways and they missed some easy shots, too," Carter added. "We were getting shots we wanted and we continued to play hard and aggressive."

Riley decried his team's offensive inconsistency.

"We have to make plays," he said. "We had four points in the paint in the first half. We have to put the ball in the basket. It is debilitating when you go through six- and seven-minute droughts."
