Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter played like an All-Star. Karl Malone did not.

Carter scored 33 points to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 103-95 victory over the Utah Jazz and Malone, who was held to 12 points.

In his ninth 30-point game of the season, Carter made 13-of-30 shots. He sparked a 19-5 burst that opened the second half and gave Toronto a 19-point lead.

"We really moved the ball well which gave us good looks," Carter said. "We made them run and I think we made them tired."

While Carter was dominating on offense, Malone could not get untracked. Defended primarily by Charles Oakley, the star power forward did not score in the second half, when he played just eight minutes. He grabbed four rebounds in 26 minutes.

Malone came in averaging 23 points per game. Since scoring 31 points against Toronto and moving past Wilt Chamberlain into second place on the all-time list on December 5, he has failed to break 20 points in five of seven games.

"I don't think we had a lot of people ready to play tonight," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I'm sorry to say this, but we looked sad to be here. I don't care what names were out on the floor. I was looking for someone who wants to play."

Sloan may have been referring to both Malone and guard John Stockton, perennial All-Stars who saw limited minutes.

"I've been playing for 16 years," Malone said. "I don't think he's going to send me a message."

"You go in and play when coach tells you to," Stockton said.

Oakley collected eight points and 15 rebounds. Antonio Davis added 14 and 13 for the Raptors, who never trailed and snapped a two-game slide.

"We played good throughout the game," said Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens. "We had decent looks and we shot a nice percentage. This was a good win for us against a good team."

Donyell Marshall scored a season-high 24 points off the bench for the Jazz, who dropped to 1-2 on their six-game road trip. Utah is 7-3 all-time against Toronto.

Carter's 3-pointer capped a 10-2 run that opened the game. The Jazz fought back for a 21-21 tie with 2:17 left in the first period but the Raptors closed the quarter with eight straight points, including four by Carter.

"We came down and shot the ball like a cannon," Sloan said. "We had three or four layups we missed and then didn't get back on defense."

"We're a veteran team and we should be ready to play," Malone said. "We weren't tonight and they were. Right off the bat, they got seven offensive rebounds. You can point a lot of fingers but we have to be professional and be ready for the next game."

Utah closed to 54-49 at halftime but started slowly in the third quarter. Carter started the decisive run with a layup off an offensive rebound. Corliss Williamson scored six of his eight points in the burst and Carter closed it with a basket, a free throw and a corner jumper, giving Toronto a 73-54 lead with 5:01 to go.

"It's hard to know why we were not ready," Stockton said. "We're not competing the way we should. We need to reach inside and start competing as a team."

Malone missed his first three shots of the third quarter and sat down with 7 1/2 minutes left. He returned midway through the fourth quarter before leaving for good with 1:41 to play. The Jazz got no closer than the final margin.

"This is what we needed to do because lately we've been known for our slow starts," Carter said. "It's nice to make the other team play catch-up. It was a good thing for us to keep Stockton and Malone off the floor."

Mark Jackson had 12 points and seven assists and Alvin Williams added 10 and eight for the Raptors, who shot 46 percent (41-of-89), including 8-of-22 from 3-point range, and held a 48-42 rebounding edge.

Stockton and David Benoit also scored 12 points each for the Jazz, who shot 43 percent (38-of-88) and made 3-of-9 from the arc.

Utah continues its trip Wednesday against Philadelphia, which has the best record in the league.

"We're having a practice tomorrow instead of a shootaround," Sloan said. "I don't care about fatigue."
