Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Mark Jackson moved into fourth-place on the all-time assists list and showed why the Toronto Raptors gave him a four-year, $16.4 million contract.

Jackson converted a three-point play, hit a 3-pointer and fed Alvin Williams for another shot from beyond the arc in the final three minutes as the Raptors used a 12-3 closing run to post a 113-102 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Needing nine assists to surpass Isiah Thomas' total of 9,061, the 35-year-old point guard finished with 12 and provided flawless floor leadership down the stretch.

"This milestone epitomizes unselfishness and I am truly honored," Jackson said. "I watched the guy (Thomas) I passed as a youngster. I've had some great finishers and I've played with some unbelievable players, as well as guys who were just hard workers."

After Mookie Blaylock hit a pair of free throws to pull the Warriors within 101-99 with 3:22 left, Jackson took over. He drove by Blaylock and banked in a layup as he was being fouled by Adonal Foyle and hit the ensuing free throw with 2:56 to play.

Antonio Davis converted 1-of-2 free throws for Toronto and Williams connected on a 3-pointer from the right side off a pass from Jackson with 1:56 left, increasing the advantage to 108-99. Jackson sealed the game with a 3-pointer from the left side with 1:22 remaining, giving Toronto its biggest lead at 111-99.

Along with the 12 assists, Jackson had 10 points and committed just one turnover.

In his 14th NBA season, Jackson has 9,065 career assists in 1,060 games. Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson is third all-time with 9,887 assists.

"It just shows you his abilities as a point guard," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said of Jackson. "Everybody wants to be on the shooting side of the ball and you don't always look for the assists. But Mark is always looking pass. That's what sets him apart."

Jackson left Indiana after the 1999-2000 season, when he helped the Pacers to the NBA Finals, signing as a free agent with the Raptors. He has also played for the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers during his career.

Jackson led the NBA in assists in 1996-97 (11.4 apg) and ranked among the league leaders in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio each of the previous three seasons.

When the Warriors and Raptors meet, the focus usually centers on team stars Vince Carter and Antawn Jamison, North Carolina teammates who were traded for each other on draft day in 1998.

Carter showed no effects from a right ankle injury suffered in Sunday's loss to San Antonio, leading the Raptors with 33 points and a season-high 13 rebounds.

Jamison topped the Warriors with 31 points and grabbed eight rebounds.

The Raptors originally drafted Jamison with the fourth overall selection and sent him to the Warriors for Carter, the fifth overall pick. Afterwards, both players praised Jackson.

"The way he plays makes you glad he's on your team," Carter said. "He always dishes the ball into the comfort zone."

"He's a true professional who is so unselfish and is always trying to get his teammates involved," Jamison said.

The loss was the 10th in 11 games for Golden State, which has lost six straight against the Raptors.

Williams scored 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and hit the 20-foot jumper from the left side with 10:05 remaining, giving Jackson the assist which moved him past Thomas.

"Alvin comes to play every game," Jackson said. "He has tremendous respect for me as I do for him."

Blaylock, the subject of trade rumors with Thursday's deadline approaching, had 16 points, eight assists and four steals for Golden State, giving him 2,000 career steals.

"It's a great achievement for me," Blaylock said. "I worked hard in this league for a number of years. It makes me feel good that the hard work pays off."

Bobby Sura had 13 assists for the Warriors, but shot just 3-of-16 from the field.

Golden State played without rookie center Marc Jackson, who is nursing a strained right groin. Jackson is averaging 13.1 points and 7.6 rebounds this season.

Foyle started in Jackson's absence and contributed 13 points, hitting all six of his field-goal attempts, and seven rebounds.

"It's always tough being short-handed, but Adonal (Foyle) and Corie Blount stepped up," Jamison said.

Blount added 10 points and five rebounds off the bench.

Toronto closed the first quarter with an 11-4 run to take a 29-24 lead. Dell Curry highlighted the spurt with a basket, two free throws and a 3-pointer and Carter capped it with a slam dunk.

The Raptors extended their lead to as many as eight points, 36-28, on a 17-foot jumper by rookie Morris Peterson with 9:45 left in the second quarter. But Golden State responded with a 10-4 run as Blaylock and Blount each scored four points and Sura hit a jumper to cap the burst.

A layup by Jamison with 50 seconds left in the quarter pulled the Warriors within 56-55 at halftime.

Jamison opened the second half with an 18-footer and connected on a 3-pointer from the left sideline to give Golden State a 62-58 lead. The Warriors extended their advantage to 75-68 when Sura completed a three-point play with 5:30 left in the third quarter.

But the Raptors scored six straight points on a pair of free throws by Curry and Carter and a basket by Jackson, tying the game at 79-79 with 49 seconds remaining in the quarter.

After Jamison hit a 20-foot jumper from the left side, Carter responded with a 3-pointer from the left corner, giving the Raptors an 82-81 lead after three quarters.
