Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter is in a slump.

The NBA's most heralded new superstar had his third straight sub-par performance as Eddie Jones and the Charlotte Hornets put on their own high-flying show, coasting to a 102-84 rout of the Toronto Raptors.

Carter, who has taken center stage in the NBA spotlight over the last two months, was shown up by Allen Iverson in Wednesday's loss at Philadelphia and was smothered by New Jersey's Kendall Gill here on Monday.

Tonight, the 6-7 forward was held below 20 points for the first time in 22 contests, making only 4-of-16 shots from the floor for 18 points.

"When I don't play well, it hurts the team," Carter said. "I have to try not to get down. You win six or seven in a row and you lose three, you're in a slump. We have to go back to the things that have given us success and hopefully, we can find it in a hurry."

Jones led a balanced Charlotte attack with 25 points and Derrick Coleman added 19 and 12 rebounds for the Hornets, who moved within two games of fourth-place Toronto in the Eastern Conference.

"Toronto missed an awful lot of shots, good shots," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "We wanted to keep them on the perimeter. We're fighting for a position, a playoff spot. We still believe we can get to that fourth spot. This game had significant importance. Vince Carter will rise to greatness, right now he has potential."

"All games are critical to us," Hornets forward Elden Campbell said. "Before the game, I thought it would be a huge test for the playoffs."

Jones made 7-of-15 shots to go with five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Anthony Mason scored 20 points, Campbell had 14 and both grabbed nine rebounds for Charlotte, which has won two in a row following a three-game losing streak.

"The only thing we have time for is to win games," Jones said. "No time to make a statement. We just have to keep moving up in the standings. It was great team defense. It was everybody in transition everywhere. It wasn't just one person. I don't know how many assists we had, but it was quite a few (26)."

David Wesley scored 12 points for the Hornets, who pulled away for good in the third quarter, when they outscored the Raptors, 34-23.

"We just have to continue to do what we did tonight, defend and rebound," Wesley said. "We played well tonight. We're playing with a little sense of urgency and getting effort out of everybody. It was a statement game. Every game is important for us now."

Carter missed his first nine shots from the field before making two free throws and a 25-footer with 3:19 left in the first half, pulling Toronto within 40-34. He made two more shots from beyond the arc, but the Raptors trailed 48-43 at halftime before getting blown out.

Jones buried a 3-pointer, Coleman made two free throws and Mason had an eight-footer and a layup as the Hornets opened a 59-45 cushion with 9:09 left in the third quarter.

Carter hit his fourth 3-pointer to pull the Hornets within 65-58 with 6:09 left in the third period, but Charlotte finished with a 17-8 run to take an 82-66 advantage into the fourth quarter.

"(Charlotte) played well all-around," Carter said. "They didn't let us get many second shots, and that hurt us. We can't win games if we can't get to the free-throw line and we aren't shooting well."

Jones buried a 15-footer and rookie Eddie Robinson was good from 13 feet as the Hornets took their biggest lead, 88-66, with 9:19 to play.

Charlotte shot 49 percent (39-of-79), held a 48-36 advantage on the boards and yielded only 11 points off turnovers.

Tracy McGrady scored 16 points and Doug Christie added 10 and a season-high 11 rebounds for Toronto, which shot 36 percent (30-of-84).
