Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Vince Carter burned the Boston Celtics from the arc all game long. But with the game on the line, Paul Pierce decided to play some tough defense. With Pierce in his face, Carter missed a long game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Celtics edged the Toronto Raptors, 114-111, to extend their season-high winning streak to four games. Carter, who scored 35 points, made five of his first six 3-pointers and had the ball in his hands with two seconds left and a chance to tie. But Pierce got a hand in his face as he attempted a fadeaway from about 28 feet, and the ball hit the backboard and side of the rim before harmlessly bouncing away. "He's their main man," Pierce said. "He's been hot all game. I just wanted to get up on him and make him shoot over me. I didn't want to foul him and we walked away with a win." "You saw it," Carter said. "It didn't go in. There you go." Donyell Marshall added 31 points and sank 7-of-9 3-pointers for Toronto, which went 13-of-21 from the arc after making 17-of-24 in a 105-95 home triumph over Boston on December 3. Marshall nailed two 3-pointers and Carter one in the final 66 seconds as Toronto nearly erased a nine-point deficit. "We have been relying on (the) three a lot," Marshall said. "We've been making a good percentage on it but that's not something we want to count on." Pierce had 33 points and 11 rebounds for the Celtics, who snapped the Raptors' season-best five-game winning streak and franchise-record streak of 22 games without allowing 100 points. "Other guys are stepping up, gaining confidence night in and night out," Pierce said. "My job as the team captain is to install confidence in everybody. I'm not the lone soul on this team and guys are responding. They responded to my challenge a couple of weeks ago and things are starting to come to him." Mike James added 21 points and Mark Blount 13 for Boston, which held a five-point lead after one quarter before opening up a 68-56 halftime advantage. "I'm very happy with the way we played in the second half, but that's not good basketball in the first half," Raptors coach Kevin O'Neill said. Boston had 15 assists and zero turnovers in the first half and finished with 22 and nine. "It's shocking," Celtics coach Jim O'Brien said of his club's mistake-free first half. "To go a whole half without turnovers is great." The Celtics shot 49 percent (46-of-94) and made half their 14 3-pointers. They have scored at least 100 points in their last five games and six of nine after failing to do so in their first 14 contests. "Winning four in a row is great," O'Brien said. "I think our offense is really doing a hell of a job. We're shooting the basketball well and we're putting up a lot of points on the board because we're keeping the tempo up north and south."
