Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter scored 10 of his 18 points in overtime to lift the Toronto Raptors to a 105-99 victory over the New York Knicks. Carter's jumper with 68 seconds remaining in overtime put Toronto ahead for good, 101-99. Donyell Marshall stole the ball from Allan Houston on the Knicks' ensuing possession and Carter added four free throws in the final 16 seconds to seal the victory and snap Toronto's four-game losing streak. "I really did not have a great first half where I could contribute and I played a little better in the second half and extra period to make up for that first half," Carter said. Jalen Rose led Toronto with 21 points, Morris Peterson added 16 while Marshall had 15 and a season-high 19 rebounds. Houston led the Knicks with 33 points and Keith Van Horn added 15, but it wasn't enough as they lost their seventh straight road game. "It's hard to take positives in a situation like this when you play hard and just don't get it done," Houston said. "I thought we kept ourselves in the game, we hung in there. We just couldn't get it done." Houston hit a 3-pointer with four seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game, 93-93. Carter badly missed a jumper as time expired to force overtime. New York forward Antonio McDyess started once again but scored just eight points and grabbed eight rebounds. Kurt Thomas, who recently complained about being replaced by McDyess in the starting lineup, received most of the minutes at the end of the game but had just six points. The Knicks are 2-8 since McDyess debuted on December 1. "It's hard, you can go back and look at every little specific part of the game and say what could've happened," Houston said. "I don't think that's where you go back and question something. You know, when the game's going you have to go out and go how the game's going." Carter, plagued by foul trouble early in the game, scored just three points in the first half. Double-teamed whenever he was in the game, Carter adjusted by assuming the role of playmaker for most of the night. And Carter handled the transition well, passing out of the double teams effectively, finding teammates for open shots and finished with eight assists against just one turnover. "I just try to get as deep as I can and find the open man," Carter said. "The one thing they like to do when I'm penetrating - the whole team likes to come. So it is a matter of me putting the ball in the right guy's hands and letting them shoot or find the next man." With many of the Raptors getting uncontested shots, Toronto jumped out an early lead. The Raptors used a 9-2 run in the second quarter to build their largest lead, 39-28, with 7:26 left in the second quarter and did not trail again until the fourth. "We were never really able to build upon the lead we got in the second half," Van Horn. "We let them hang around and climb back in it. You can't let a team like that at home hang around." New York opened the fourth with a 8-2 spurt to take a 70-69 lead with 10:30 to go. Toronto shot 50 percent (40-of-80) from the game but failed to pull away by committing 17 turnovers.
