Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter agreed to be an understudy Sunday before moving back into the spotlight Wednesday. Carter scored 11 of his 21 points in the final three-plus minutes as the Toronto Raptors extended their season-high winning streak to four games with a 97-96 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. An Eastern Conference All-Star, Carter finally relented and gave up his starter's role to Michael Jordan just before the tip of Sunday's game. If Carter was repairing his image Sunday, he helped further his case Wednesday with a dramatic finish. "I was in the spotlight all week. I was just going to the All-Star Game to have a good time and I did," Carter said. "I was definitely thrilled to be back here because I wanted to win and help us get back to the playoffs." Antonio Davis scored 22 points and Jerome Williams added 11 and 14 rebounds for the Raptors (15-34), who have won five of six games since Carter returned to the lineup after being sidelined with a knee injury. A 3-pointer by Carter gave the Raptors an 86-82 lead with 2:42 to go. He later grabbed an offensive rebound and hit a fallaway jumper with 82 seconds left to increase the lead to 89-84. Following a 3-pointer by Atlanta rookie Dan Dickau, Carter drove around Darvin Ham for a three-point play with 22 seconds remaining, making it 92-87. "I had to take the initiative to step up and make things happen," Carter said. "Either put the ball in the hole or find someone who was open, and a little bit of both happened." Only some outstanding long-distance shooting by the Hawks kept it close. Jason Terry and Glenn Robinson added 3-pointers, but Dickau, under pressure from Davis, missed from long range with 4.4 seconds left, keeping the score at 96-93. "I had a good look at it, but (Antonio Davis) came flying out," Dickau said. "I don't know if I could have got it off without double-clutching, but he made the right play and I didn't knock it down." Robinson had connected eight seconds earlier to cut the deficit to 94-93 and argued in vain that he was fouled by Alvin Williams. "I strongly feel that I got fouled on that 3-pointer. If I had a chance to shoot the free throw, I could have tied the game," Robinson said. "I think it was a crucial play and I'm upset about that." Toronto's Voshon Lenard added two free throws, setting the stage for Dickau's miss. Robinson scored 26 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 14 of his 24 in the third quarter for the Hawks, who failed to connect on a tying 3-pointer in the final seconds for the second straight night. Dion Glover's shot did not drop in Tuesday's loss to Golden State. The Raptors bounced back after making just 4-of-22 shots in the first quarter. "The first game after the All-Star break is always tough and I told the guys you know you're eight days out of competition," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We played smart most of the time and the most important thing is the win." The Hawks jumped to a quick 14-4 lead and built a 28-16 advantage after one quarter behind 12 points by Robinson. Atlanta increased its lead as high as 16 points early in the second quarter, building a 36-20 cushion on a tip-in by Alan Henderson with 9:41 left. The Raptors finally awoke with a 22-2 run that put them in front 42-38 with 3:21 left. Toronto scored the first 12 points in the run that included seven points by Lenard, including a 3-pointer. Jelani McCoy added a 3-pointer and dunk. A jumper by Davis with four seconds left gave the put the Raptors in front, 48-46, at intermission. "It's not just one or two guys taking shots," Davis said. "We were distributing the ball well and that made it tough to defend us." The third quarter belonged to Abdur-Rahim, who finished with nine rebounds. The Hawks scored the final six points of the quarter on baskets by Henderson, Abdur-Rahim and Terry to take a 74-68 lead. Toronto went to the line 35 times - making 26 - compared to just 20 for the Hawks.
