Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter may have taught teenage phenom LeBron James a valuable lesson. Carter shook off a brutal first three quarters and dominated down the stretch to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 75-69 triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Carter had just three points through the first 36 minutes but took over in the final eight minutes, scoring 11 of his 14 points. He was particularly tough with the game tied, 67-67, and 1:45 to play. The perennial All-Star came out of a timeout and drained a 17-footer jumper. After a miss by James, Carter sank a basket from the top of the key with 6-10 Darius Miles in his face. Carter punctuated his team's second win in as many meetings with the Cavaliers this season with a spectacular windmill dunk with 21 seconds to go. "I didn't play well but I was glad I continued to keep playing and play through it," said Carter, who made 6-of-19 shots. "When it mattered, I was able to step up and give us some big baskets." "You can only contain a great player (for so long)," James said. "Vince heated up in the fourth and that is when the best players heat up. He did that for them." James downplayed Carter's experience in dealing with crunch time. "It's about making shots in the fourth quarter," James said. "Experience has nothing to do with putting the ball down." For his part, Carter was complimentary but terse regarding James. "He can play. I won't go any farther than that," Carter said. "Simple ... he can play." James, the NBA's leading rookie scorer, had 21 points on 10-of-23 shooting but had trouble running the offense after the game was tied. Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 12 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland. Donyell Marshall led Toronto with 14 points and 13 rebounds but made just 5-of-17 shots. Lonny Baxter came off the bench to score 13 points and grab nine rebounds in 23 minutes. "I tried to contribute as much as possible," Baxter said. "I'm an effort player. I just try to get on the glass, get second shots and use my body as much as possible." Raptors rookie center Chris Bosh left the game midway through the third quarter with a right knee sprain and did not return. He underwent testing on the knee and the team said it expects results Thursday. The game was tied, 60-60, with 7:34 left when Carter sank a 3-pointer to ignite a 7-0 run. Tony Battie hit two free throws with 4:04 remaining to halt the run and spark a 7-0 spurt that James capped by converting a twisting runner under the basket. But Carter took over from there, making 3-of-4 shots and scoring the next six points. "He's capable," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "He made two big shots when the score was tied at 67 and you expect that from him."
