Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Jalen Rose is as hot as anyone in the NBA. Tonight, he also cooled off the league's fastest rising star.

Rose scored 23 of his career-high 32 points in the first half and held All-Star Vince Carter without a basket in the first 24 minutes as the Indiana Pacers extended their franchise-record home winning streak to 19 games with a 109-101 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Rose knocked down his first six shots and finished 9-of-12 in 21 minutes in the first half. He entered the contest averaging 22.5 points over his previous four contests. He surpassed his previous career high of 28 at San Antonio on November 16 early in the fourth quarter.

"I don't know what it was, maybe they didn't recognize me by my tan," Rose said, jokingly referring to his vacation to the Bahamas during the All-Star break. "I don't know, I was just playing the game. My teammates did good job of getting me the ball when I was in position to score."

"He wanted to show Vince Carter how good he was and he did," Toronto coach Butch Carter said of Rose.

Carter, the heir apparent to Michael Jordan's throne and the league's new dunk king, managed just four points from the line before the half, missing all five of his floor shots.

"Obviously Vince is a spectacular player," Rose said. "He is a player that a lot of people come to watch and a lot of people have found ways to marvel at the things he does and I do also. But I'm not a fan, I'm a peer and once we go out there on that floor, it works in two ways: I can be making a poster or I can be on one. And I wasn't trying to be one."

"I couldn't get it going tonight," Carter said. "I couldn't put it in the hole. I don't have any specific answers. Indiana's defense did a good job against me tonight. Indiana is definitely a team to be reckoned with."

Indiana improved to a league-best 22-2 at Conseco Fieldhouse and eclipsed its 18-game home streak during the 1972-73 season when it won the title in the old ABA.

The Raptors, who ran out to a 32-16 lead after one quarter in Tuesday's triumph over New York, got a taste of their own medicine tonight as the Pacers opened a 40-24 lead after 12 minutes behind 14 points by Rose.

"I thought we just played that well in the first quarter," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "(Rose) had a great first quarter, a great first half."

Rose slowed down and Toronto rallied, closing within 93-88 with 8:23 to play. But Rose rediscovered his touch and drained a 3-pointer and 14-footer on consecutive trips to make it 98-90 with 5:47 left.

Carter made 7-of-10 second-half shots to finish with 21 points and Tracy McGrady added 20 for Toronto, which remained winless in eight all-time trips to Indiana.

The Pacers lead the all-time series 15-2 and avenged a 105-97 loss at Toronto on December 14. Indiana is 10-0 in rematches against teams it has lost to this season.

Austin Croshere scored 15 points and All-Star Dale Davis added 13 and 13 rebounds for Indiana, which shot 54 percent (43-of-80), including 8-of-17 from 3-point range.

Pacers leading scorer Reggie Miller scored just 11 points but surpassed Dolph Schayes for 29th place on the all-time list with 19,248. Mark Jackson had 13 points and 15 assists, including a dazzling behind-the-back feed to Davis for an uncontested layup that made it 103-96 with just over two minutes left.

"Give them credit, they did not roll over and play dead," said Jackson. "They fought and scratched and got back in the thick of it. (Rose) is the best-kept secret in the league. He has a lot of weapons and knows how to use them. He will be a great basketball player."

Former Pacer Antonio Davis had 17 points and 13 rebounds in his first visit to Indiana since being dealt to Toronto in the offseason. The Raptors shot 47 percent (41-of-88) and yielded just nine points off turnovers.

"It felt like practice again going against Dale," Antonio Davis said. "We always tried to make each other better in practice and boy he's really gotten better. You've got to give a lot of credit to Jalen Rose. He was hard to stop."

Rose made a five-footer, a layup and was good from 21, 15, 16 and 19 feet before missing a follow shot with 5:52 left in the first quarter. His 17-footer with 2:37 remaining in the first quarter gave the Pacers a 30-15 lead.

"We wanted to get the second half of the season off on the right foot," Rose said. "Our guys came back eager and ready to go. We had a phenomenal start."

Indiana appeared to knock the wind out of Toronto just before the end of the period when Rose fed Miller with an inbounds pass that turned into a 45-footer and opened a 40-24 cushion at the buzzer.

The Raptors began their comeback in the third quarter, outscoring the Pacers, 33-21. Carter framed a 3-pointer by Doug Christie with a 24-footer and a short jumper from the left sideline to shave the deficit to 68-55 with 10:43 remaining in the period.

"We had a 20-point lead at the half and the worst thing that could happen was they scored seven straight points," Bird said. "They got their confidence. We made a mistake by letting them back in the game, but we played well."

Carter's three-point play made it 75-66 midway through the quarter and his eight-footer with 9:30 to play cut the margin to 91-86.
