Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- For the second time this season, Toronto Raptors superstar Vince Carter sat out the second half of a game against the San Antonio Spurs after suffering a lower leg injury. This time, the Raptors won -- ugly.

Despite playing the final 25 1/2 minutes without Carter, who suffered a strained left quadriceps tendon, and shooting only 33 percent (28-of-84), Toronto defeated San Antonio in overtime, 80-74.

Carter landed strangely after being fouled by Tim Duncan late in the second quarter. He made two free throws while in obvious pain and Toronto called timeout to take him out. He finished with 13 points.

The league's leading All-Star vote-getter was taken to Toronto Western Hospital for diagnostic testing along with Dell Curry, who strained his left calf earlier in the game.

Carter will not play in the All-Star Game and may be placed on the injured list pending the results of his evaluation.

In their December 12 matchup in San Antonio, Carter strained his right calf after scoring six points and the Spurs won, 108-95.

In this one, Toronto scored the first eight points in the extra session, the final two on a pair of free throws by Alvin Williams with 33 seconds left.

But Terry Porter hit a 3-pointer three seconds later and after Williams lost the ball, Duncan scored on a three-point play with 27 seconds left to cut Toronto's lead to 75-73.

Williams hit another pair from the line with 25 seconds to play and San Antonio got no closer than 77-74 in the waning seconds.

Keon Clark paced Toronto with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Antonio Davis finished with 16 and 11 before fouling out in overtime for Toronto, which enters the All-Star break at 29-21.

"It was a great win for us," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Guys got into foul trouble and we lost people with injuries. It was incredible. We didn't give up and we got little lifts from people like Michael Stewart and Jermaine Jackson. Everybody played great, it truly was a team win and a good note to end the first half of the season with."

In one of the worst shooting displays in NBA history, the Spurs shot just 23.9 percent (22-of-92). The league record for futility is 22.9 percent, set by the Milwaukee Hawks against the Minneapolis Lakers in 1954.

Duncan had 22 points and 17 rebounds but shot just 6-of-29, including several missed dunks and layups. It was the lowest shooting percentage in the perennial All-Star's five-year career. His previous worst contest was 4-of-17 at Phoenix on February 22, 1998.

"I'm not taking anything from them, but I just missed shots," Duncan said. "It was probably the worst game of my career. I thought I took good shots. Nothing was forced. This one's on me. I felt good, nothing was wrong. It was just a bad, bad night."

It was the worst percentage in team history. The previous low was 30.6 percent (26-of-85) against Cleveland on March 25, 1997. It was also the best defensive performance in Raptors history, surpassing the 32.5 percent (26-of-80) allowed against Orlando on April 19, 1999.

After Steve Smith scored on a tip to extend the Spurs' narrow advantage to 65-62 with 54 seconds left in regulation, Chris Childs hit a 3-pointer -- his first points of the game -- 10 seconds later.

"I thought Childs' shot was the turning point," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He wanted the ball, he took the shot, he showed a lot of guts. If he doesn't hit that, we win the game."

Duncan hit a pair of free throws with 25 seconds left, but Childs countered with a layup with 14 seconds remaining to tie the game at 67.

Smith missed a jumper from just inside the arc and Toronto grabbed the rebound with less than a second remaining. The Raptors did not get a shot off before the buzzer and the game went to overtime.

David Robinson scored 14 points and pulled down 16 rebounds for San Antonio, which started the season 20-4 but has gone 11-13 since.

"Missing shots is not the end of the game," Robinson said. "We can still shoot poorly, play good defense and win the game, but we made bad decisions. We'd like to have this one back."

In addition to losing Carter and Curry to injury, the Raptors played without Hakeem Olajuwon (strained right quad), Mo Peterson (fractured index finger), Tracy Murray (left ankle sprain) and Jerome Williams (high right ankle sprain).

After Curry and Childs fouled out in the extra session, the only player left on Toronto's bench for Wilkens to use was rookie Michael Bradley.

"We don't like to see Vince go down but what is most important is that we don't panic and we move forward," Davis said. "The break is coming at a good time, especially for the guys that are banged up."
