Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter may be the NBA's most talented player. But the Portland Trail Blazers showed him why they are the NBA's most talented team.

The red-hot Carter was stopped cold down the stretch by Scottie Pippen and the Trail Blazers rode the offense of Rasheed Wallace to an 86-80 victory over the Toronto Raptors, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

"They're a good ballclub with a superstar but they missed some shots down the stretch," Wallace said.

"Vince is a great player but we have so many weapons that we'll find a way to beat you," Blazers guard Steve Smith said.

Carter scored a season-high 37 points of 14-of-27 shooting. On consecutive possessions, he made a 3-pointer over Pippen and drove past Smith for a three-point play that gave Toronto a 79-79 tie with 2:33 remaining.

But the Raptors did not score from the floor again. Wallace, who scored 25 points, made a turnaround jumper with 2:06 to go that gave Portland the lead for good. On the next possession, Pippen blocked Carter's turnaround shot from the left baseline and Wallace beat the shot clock with an 18-footer with 1:20 to go.

"We challenged their shots all night," Pippen said. "That's our strength -- to shut teams down to one-shot opportunities and they missed."

Charles Oakley made 1-of-2 free throws to cut the deficit to 83-80 but Wallace sank another turnaround from six feet to seal the win.

"I just made some shots before they could come with the double-team," Wallace said.

"Rasheed Wallace played outstanding," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "He hit some tough shots for them."

Smith scored 15 points and Dale Davis grabbed 14 rebounds for Portland, which won for the fifth time in six games and improved to 2-1 on its seven-game road trip.

The Raptors came in averaging an NBA-best 100.7 points per game but were held to their lowest total of the season by the Trail Blazers.

"It was a tough game," Dunleavy said. "I was really pleased with our defense tonight. Toronto's been scoring a lot of points."

Carter took over the NBA scoring lead at 29.5 points per game. He added eight rebounds, six assists and his usual array of high-flying moves but did not get much help. Corliss Williamson was the only other Raptor in double figures with 11 points.

"We didn't win the game as a team," Carter said. "It's a tough loss because we gave them a run for their money. We had some good open shots but we missed them."

Smith made a 3-pointer and followed in a miss by Wallace for a 77-69 lead with just under five minutes to go. Raptors rookie Morris Peterson answered with a pair of baskets and Pippen threw in a hook before Carter tied it for the 12th and final time.

Former Raptor Damon Stoudamire had 14 points and six assists for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (35-of-76) and held a 49-44 rebounding edge. Wallace grabbed eight rebounds and Smith and Shawn Kemp pulled down seven apiece.

Stoudamire, the Raptors' first draft pick in 1995, was heavily booed during introductions. He refused to sign an extension with the club in 1997 and was traded during the 1997-98 season, the franchise's low point.

"I expected that," Stoudamire said. "We tried not to let the crowd into the game. It doesn't bother me. I feed off the crowd."

Antonio Davis grabbed 12 rebounds but shot 0-of-11 for Toronto, which made just 35 percent (31-of-89).

Portland never trailed after the first quarter but Toronto hung around. A pair of baskets by Wallace began and ended an 8-0 surge that gave Portland a 44-35 lead as Toronto went scoreless for the final 3:13 of the first half.

But the Blazers returned the favor, going over three minutes without a point to open the third quarter. Carter's 3-pointer completed a 10-2 surge and pulled the Raptors within 46-45.

Despite Carter's 14 points in the period, Toronto trailed 62-58 entering the fourth quarter.

"It's tough to play catch-up against a team like Portland," said Carter. "They have guys that can score and they keep you going."

Kemp suffered a bruised right knee in the second quarter and did not return.
