Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter overcame the trade rumors to lift the Toronto Raptors to one of the greatest moments in their 10-year existence. In front of a sparse crowd, Carter's 3-pointer from the left wing with 4.8 seconds remaining lifted the Raptors to a 101-97 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, marking the team's first 3-0 start in franchise history. With the score tied at 95-95, Carter faked a drive towards Nick Van Exel and stepped back to hit his only 3-pointer of the contest. He also made two free throws with 3.2 seconds left to finish with nine points in the fourth and 25 overall. "I was waiting for the shot clock to come down," Carter said. "As I went left, everybody went left so I just stepped back and hey, do or die. Fortunately it went in." "That's his thing," Portland guard Van Exel said. "He made a move and hit me with a step back. Great move and great shot. Good players make that shot. My hat's off to him." Only 13,863 fans witnessed the historic win, the smallest crowd to attend a Toronto game ever. Trailing 100-97, the Trail Blazers had a chance for a shot in the final seconds but Darius Miles overthrew Van Exel on an inbounds pass down the sideline for their 17th turnover of the game. Rafer Alston, Jalen Rose and Donyell Marshall had 16 points apiece for the Raptors, who outscored Portland, 31-18, in the second quarter to take a nine-point lead at the half. In its first three games of the year, Toronto has dominated its opponent by more than 12 points per contest in the second period. Much of the charge was led by the second unit, with Lamond Murray and Milt Palacio scoring seven points apiece. In all, the Raptors' reserves outscored Portland's, 40-21. "We always talk in practice and we feel that we need to come in and be the energy group," said Marshall, who had 10 points in his first 11 minutes off the bench. "We as a team are a lot deeper than we were last year and that is helping." "It was a total team effort," Rose said. "It is picture perfect. This franchise has never started 3-0 and more importantly, going on a big West Coast trip you want at least two out of three at home. For us to get all three is a good start and hopefully we can go on the road and play good basketball." Zach Randolph, who missed the team flight and arrived in town late Saturday night, rallied the Trail Blazers with 25 of his 33 points in the second half. "We had no answer for Zach Randolph," Toronto coach Sam Mitchell said. "Our guys battled him and he made some tough shots." "I feel we should've won this game," said Randolph. "We could've had better execution earlier in the game and we definitely would've won this game." Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 16 points and Theo Ratliff followed up his franchise-record nine-block performance on Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers with six rejections for Portland, which absorbed its first loss in three games.
