Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- In just his third season, Vince Carter has stamped himself into the record books of the Toronto Raptors.

Carter poured in 38 points to become the all-time leading scorer in club history as the Raptors pulled away for a 107-90 victory over the hapless New Jersey Nets.

One of the NBA's most exciting players, Carter surpassed Doug Christie as Toronto's leading scorer when he hit a jumper with 49 seconds left in the first quarter. Carter has scored 4,477 points since entering the league in 1998.

Carter also triggered a 17-5 burst to start the fourth quarter, scoring eight points to help Toronto open a 88-76 advantage with just over six minutes remaining.

"We were active and guys were playing hard," Carter said. "I was feeling confident in my jump shot and I went with it. In the fourth quarter, our defense allowed us to get some easy baskets. We are playing with a lot more confidence."

Keon Clark, seeing extended playing time after Antonio Davis was ejected early in the opening quarter, added 16 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks for Toronto, which moved a season-high five games over .500.

"I feel it was my most complete game as a player," Clark said.

Rookie Kenyon Martin scored a season-high 26 points for the Nets, who suffered their 11th straight road loss. New Jersey is a woeful 6-23 away from Continental Airlines Arena.

Despite his big game, Martin disappeared in the fourth quarter when the Nets needed him most. He scored one point in the period, missing his only shot from the field while grabbing two rebounds.

A 3-pointer by Keith Van Horn, who scored 18 points, gave the Nets a 71-67 advantage with 54 seconds left in the third quarter. But Carter scored inside and Clark hit a 13-footer to end the period tied.

Carter nailed a 17-footer and Alvin Williams a long jumper just inside the arc, giving the Raptors the lead for good at 78-74 with 10:10 remaining.

Carter, who made 14-of-28 shots from the field, sank a pair of 3-pointers in the 17-5 burst that Charles Oakley capped with a jumper for an 88-76 lead with 6:21 left.

While Carter was enjoying another stellar night, the Nets' best player, Stephon Marbury, was struggling. He scored 26 points and handed out nine assists but made just 6-of-24 shots from the field.

The Nets shot just 38 percent (28-of-74) and were outrebounded by a lopsided 54-31 margin.

"(That) is too big a margin to overcome when it comes to rebounding," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "Keon Clark and Jerome Williams kicked our butts in the fourth quarter. They were very aggressive on the offensive glass."

"When you get outrebounded by 23, it's tough to win," Martin added.

Alvin Williams, who recently became a starter at point guard, added 15 points and five assists for Toronto, which shot 51 percent (45-of-88). Jerome Williams helped on the boards for the Raptors with 11 rebounds.

"The bench brings a lot. Keon's blocks bring a lot of energy and Jerome brings a lot of enthusiasm," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Both guys were active on the boards tonight."

After a dunk by Van Horn pulled the Nets within 95-85 with 2:51 to go, the Raptors reeled off the next 10 points, capped Chris Childs' 3-pointer for a 20-point bulge with 51 seconds remaining.

Acquired in a trade from Denver earlier this season, Clark saw increased time after Davis picked up a pair of technical fouls in a 56-second span and was ejected with 8:23 left in the first quarter.

Clark had four points, seven rebounds and six blocks in the first half, helping the Raptors open a 46-44 advantage. The 6-11 center scored eight more points in the third quarter.

"It was a balanced team effort, knowing Antonio was out," Clark said. "We wanted the loose balls and we wanted to limit their second shots."
