Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors found the recipe for winning without Vince Carter. Just add a pinch of solid defense to a dash of Cleveland Cavaliers.

Morris Peterson led five Raptors in double figures with 18 points as Toronto kept its fading playoff hopes alive with a 94-80 rout of the Cavaliers.

The Raptors have played themselves out of a playoff spot by losing 17 of their last 19 games and are 4 1/2 games out of the final postseason spot. But they won for the first time this season without Carter, who is having knee surgery next week and will miss the rest of the regular season.

"I think everybody has to pick up his level of play," Peterson said. "When you have a guy like Vince who means a great deal to us and he's out for a while, there's a sense of urgency."

Wesley Person scored 15 points for Cleveland, which shot 30 percent (12-of-40) from the field in the first half and trailed at the break, 47-32. The Cavs have lost five of their last seven.

"We wanted to get off to a good start and we were glad they weren't making their shots," Peterson said.

The Raptors took control with 2 1/2 minutes left in a sluggish first quarter when Antonio Davis' jumper snapped an 11-11 tie, igniting a 14-0 run that spanned the rest of the period and almost two minutes of the second.

"We stunk again at home," Cavs coach John Lucas said. "I thought neither team wanted to win at the beginning. I just didn't see any pizzazz or any leadership or any direction from my team today. We all stunk, me and the whole team. I thought it was bad basketball by both teams, but it was a good win for them."

Toronto took its biggest lead of the half at 40-21 when Davis sank two free throws with 5:05 left. Davis finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and two steals for the Raptors, who shot 48 percent (39-of-82) from the field.

Jerome Williams added 14 points, Eric Montross 13 and Keon Clark chipped in with 12 as the Raptors posted their biggest margin of victory since a 107-88 win over Philadelphia on November 25.

"I thought we played hard, (Chris) Childs took that fall and he's out for a while and Curry's back tightens up and he's out of the game. All of a sudden we've got Alvin Williams and Jermaine Jackson at guard," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Injuries just don't seem to end, but it was a good win."

Ricky Davis scored 12 points and Brian Skinner 11 for Cleveland, which shot 38 percent (31-of-82) from the floor and 15-of-24 from the line while holding a 48-43 rebounding edge.

The Cavs failed to make a sustained run in the second half. They got as close as 53-41 on Tyrone Hill's three-point play 3:17 into the third quarter but could edge no closer.

"It was just a poor performance, and you hate to see that," said Cleveland's Bryant Stith, who was held to five points in 17 minutes. "We're a sexy basketball team, if you want to put it that way, and tonight we weren't very pretty."
