Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- A dominating performance by the Toronto Raptors silenced an arena that may not host an NBA team next season.

The Raptors used a big run across the second and third quarters and cruised to a 101-84 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies in what may be the last game between the Canadian clubs at GM Place.

Toronto closed the second quarter with an 8-2 run to grab a 51-45 lead and opened the third quarter with a 9-0 surge, capped by a driving dunk by Vince Carter with 8:51 left.

The Raptors opened an 81-61 advantage after three quarters and led by as many as 24 in the final period to roll to their seventh win in nine games as they continue their drive toward possible home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

"It wasn't an easy game by far," Carter said. "We had to go in there and earn it. We made it easy because we stepped up our defense and I think we're starting to get our continuity together."

Carter had 25 points, eight rebounds and five assists and Antonio Davis added 15 points and seven rebounds. The Raptors dished out 27 assists and outrebounded Vancouver, 48-32.

"You want to attack the boards," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "You don't want to give teams second or third shots because that allows them to play the game. We went after the boards."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 17 points and Mike Bibby added 16 for the Grizzlies, who are expected to relocate to either Anaheim, California or New Orleans after the season.

The teams were tied at 28-28 after the first quarter before Toronto took control late in the second. Charles Oakley scored the first four points in the 8-2 run to end the first half.

The Raptors carried the momentum into the third quarter as rookie Morris Peterson and Carter combined for all nine points to start the second half.

"I think they set the tone in the third quarter," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "The last two minutes of the second quarter and the first three or four minutes of the third quarter is pretty much where we lost the ballgame."

A layup by Peterson with 3:58 left completed a 9-2 run as Toronto built a 75-55 advantage. Vancouver scored the next six points, but the Raptors answered with their own six-point run which included four free throws by Keon Clark.

Toronto shot 57 percent (12-of-21) in the third quarter and outrebounded the Grizzlies, 12-5, to extend to an 81-63 lead. Vancouver did not grab an offensive rebound in the third period.

"I think we played a good game up until the third," Vancouver guard Michael Dickerson said. "We really didn't come out with the energy we needed and they saw that and they took advantage of that. They jumped on us."

The Raptors scored the first six points of the fourth quarter to take their largest lead with 10:30 to play, capped by an alley-oop slam by Clark. Vancouver never got any closer than the final margin, shooting 26 percent (5-for-19) in the fourth quarter.

Oakley finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. All 12 Raptors scored and grabbed at least one rebound. Toronto shot 48 percent (44-of-91), including 6-of-13 from 3-point range.

After dropping the first two games on their four-game West Coast road trip, the Raptors finished with two straight wins.

"We were anxious to come out and play well," Wilkens said. "We were a little upset with ourselves the way we played in Sacramento, so we regrouped in Seattle and played well there."
