Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Nets are just waiting for the playoffs, while the Toronto Raptors are still fighting to get in.

Morris Peterson scored 24 points to lead five players in double figures as the Raptors continue their amazing run at the playoffs with a 101-82 victory over the Nets, who barely used their starters.

New Jersey already has earned the top seed in the Eastern Conference, giving it a chance to rest its key players in the final three games of the season. Toronto is trying to make the postseason and took advantage, moving within once victory of clinching a playoff berth.

The Raptors (41-39) never trailed after the first 90 seconds and led by as many as 39 points en route to their 11th win in 12 games. They remained one game ahead of Milwaukee and Indiana for seventh place in the Eastern Conference.

"The point is that we came to play and we were focused and in control," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "You always want to control your own destiny. You never want to sit around and hope someone else does something."

Peterson made 10-of-14 shots and Antonio Davis had 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting as Toronto shot 57 percent (46-of-81).

"The bottom line is that we played the way that we can play," Davis said. "We don't care what anybody else is doing, we control what happens from here. We took another giant step and hope that carries on."

The Raptors had an 11-10 lead less than five minutes into the game before going on a 15-4 run. Peterson scored five points and Alvin Williams added four of his 13 during the burst, which gave Toronto a 26-14 cushion.

The Raptors had a 30-22 advantage early in the second before carrying a 37-9 run into the second half to put away the game. Eight different Toronto players scored during the stretch led by Jerome Williams, who scored 10 of his 12 points.

Williams capped the burst with a dunk to give the Raptors a 67-31 cushion five minutes into the third quarter. Toronto had its largest lead at 79-41 after a 3-pointer by Alvin Williams 6 1/2 minutes later.

Hakeem Olajuwon had 10 points and six rebounds and fellow reserve Dell Curry added nine points for the Raptors, who had a 46-35 rebounding advantage and collected 30 assists.

Rookie Brian Scalabrine scored a season-high 16 points and played 31 minutes to lead New Jersey.

Rookie Jason Collins also scored 16 points as none of the Nets' starters played more than 22 minutes.

Jason Kidd played 22 minutes and Kenyon Martin 21, with the other three new Jersey starters combining for just 44 minutes. The starters combined to made just 11-of-31 shots in their limited time on the floor.

"I'm really upset that our starters didn't come ready to play," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said. "I thought a couple of guys showed up but I think others took my kindness for a weakness. To have a laid-back attitude is OK, but to not come out trying, that's not acceptable."

The Nets shot just 41 percent (32-of-78) from the floor and posted their lowest total since losing to Detroit on February 14.

"We were giving guys a rest and it did not work," said forward Keith Van Horn, who had two points and five rebounds in 11 minutes. "Obviously you never want to lose like this, but it just wasn't us."

"I think we already had our vacation and now we have to get back to work," Kidd said. "The guys in the locker room understand that we have to get ready. We have to keep our edge because once you lose it, it's hard to get it back."
