Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Suddenly, all the Toronto Raptors started looking like Vince Carter.

After trailing all night, the Raptors got a clutch 3-pointer from Alvin Williams with 1.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter to force overtime, then scored the first eight points of the extra session, pulling out a 104-95 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Raptors came back from an 91-82 deficit with 1:22 left, finishing regulation on an 11-2 run behind three points apiece from Antonio Davis and Mark Jackson and five from Williams.

Jeff McInnis, who was punched by Raptors forward Charles Oakley during shootaround this morning, had a chance to deal Toronto a crushing blow when he went to the line with 11 seconds left and the Clippers holding a two-point lead. But he missed 1-of-2, letting the Raptors get off the mat.

On the final play in regulation, Williams, who moved into the starting lineup when Carter went down with a thigh injury earlier this week, took the inbounds pass beyond the arc at the top of the key. With rookie Quentin Richardson guarding him, Williams took one dribble to his right, headfaked and came back to his left before lofting the tying shot.

"Mo (Peterson) passed it to me and I shook free long enough to get open and I rattled it in," Williams explained. "With Charles and Vince out, this was a big win. We executed well in overtime on the defensive end and made our shots. Our experience, especially Mark Jackson, got the better of them."

Carter missed his third straight game but looked fully recovered from the injured tendon in his left knee when Williams hit the shot. He leaped up from the bench and danced across the court.

"After an ugly 45 minutes, we were still in the ballgame," Jackson said. "Our experience paid off. We made some stops and made some plays. That should be a real confidence builder for Alvin. It says a lot about our team's character, to grind it out, being shorthanded."

In overtime, it was all Toronto, as the Raptors took advantage of the young Clippers' inex•É¥•¹•¹

Kevin Willis nailed a 20-footer over Lamar Odom, Jackson scored on a drive and hit from the left corner and Williams drilled a jumper from near the arc, giving the Raptors a 101-93 lead with 2:45 left.

The Clippers did not give themselves a chance the rest of the way, missing 6-of-8 free throws.

"It was a tough loss because I thought we played well," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "We have young guys out on the floor. The turnovers down the stretch hurt us and we have to step to the line and shoot free throws."

Jackson tied season highs with 20 points and 15 assists. Willis scored 19 points and Corliss Williamson scored 18 for the Raptors, who also were without Oakley, who was suspended for the incident with McInnis.

The veteran forward was suspended for three games for punching McInnis during today's shootaround here.

"The guys never quit," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We started making inroads at the start of the third quarter. We picked it up in the fourth. Our three veterans set the tone for us."

Richardson scored a season-high 20 points, Odom added 17 and nine rebounds and Brian Skinner scored 13 points for the Clippers, who dropped to 0-3 in overtime.

"We have a young team trying like hell," Gentry said. "I'll never criticize them. We need to learn how to win down the stretch."

Keyon Dooling hit a pair of 3-pointers in an 8-0 run that gave the Clippers their largest lead of the first half, 37-26, with 6:09 left in the second quarter.

The Raptors got as close as 42-36 on a 3-pointer by Jackson with 3:30 to go but the Clippers answered with back-to-back baskets by Odom and Sean Rooks. Los Angeles held a 51-41 lead at halftime.

Odom gave the Clippers their largest lead of the third, 63-52, when he nailed a 3-pointer from the right side with 5:20 to go.

But even without their star and their workhorse, the Raptors had enough experience and talent to get his job done down the stretch, especially against the youthful Clippers.

"When we get on the plane we need to leave this one right here," Richardson said. "I think we played well but we made some rookie mistakes down the stretch. Free throws have been a problem for us so we need to put in the extra minutes after practice."

The Raptors have won the last five meetings between the teams and are 5-1 all-time at home against Los Angeles. The Clippers' lone win in Toronto came on January 7, 1997.
