Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors did not miss Vince Carter in this one. Jalen Rose scored 30 points to lead six players in double figures while Carter struggled from the field as the Raptors rolled to a 100-82 victory over the New Jersey Nets. Carter was facing the Raptors for the first time since being traded to New Jersey on December 17. He got a warm welcome from his former teammates prior to the game but struggled throughout, making just 8-of-25 shots from the floor en route to 22 points. Despite previously saying that he placed no extra importance on the game, Carter seemed to continually take forced shots and never was able to get into a rhythm. Rose, on the other hand, could hardly miss, draining 12-of-15 attempts from the floor, including 3-of-4 3-pointers, while pulling down eight rebounds. "(Carter) was probably pressured a little bit," Rose said. "He's probably a little tired from the All-Star break. While he was running up and down the court throwing it off the backboard, I was laying on the beach drinking a fruity drink with an umbrella. So, I give myself an unfair advantage tonight." Chris Bosh scored 16 points and had 12 rebounds and Donyell Marshall added 11 and 10 off the bench for the Raptors, who bounced back from a slow start to win for just the fifth time in 26 road games this season. After making only 14-of-35 shots in the first half, the Raptors shot 55 percent (22-of-40) in the final 24 minutes, including 6-of-10 3-pointers. The Nets remained cold throughout, managing only 37 percent (31-of-83) from the floor, 4-of-15 from the arc and 16-of-25 from the line. "As a team we missed a lot of shots and they made their shots," Carter said. "We couldn't really make shots up close, outside, anywhere." It was a disappointing start to the second half for New Jersey, which had won 11 of its previous 17 games and seven of nine at the Meadowlands. "Hopefully this is not a warning shot for the rest of the season," said Nets guard Jason Kidd, who had 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. "You can say it's only one game, but we only have 28 left. If this is the way it's going to be, I'll sit and watch the young guys play if not everybody is going to show up." The Raptors improved to 2-0 against the Nets since the Carter trade. They defeated New Jersey on December 19, 110-99, but Carter had not yet joined the Nets. "We were all pumped up about (the game), including Vince," Rose said. "Every time he plays against the Raptors, it's going to be him against his old team and rightfully so." The Nets jumped out to an early nine-point lead due to a strong start from forward Jason Collins and center Jabari Smith. But both were soon in foul trouble and the Nets, already without ill rookie center Nenad Krstic, were forced to go to a small lineup and struggled. "The way we started the game was obviously very good," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "Unfortunately, we got into foul trouble. We had to wind up playing real small with some different lineups." "We tried to go shot-for-shot but we went cold and they kept making shots," Kidd said. "We're trying to push to make the playoffs and if we play like we did tonight, the season will be over before April."
