Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Hello, Vince Carter. Goodbye, nine-game losing streak. Carter returned from a six-game absence to score 27 points as the Toronto Raptors snapped a season-high slide with an 89-86 victory over the Miami Heat. "Having Vince Carter back helped us a tremendous amount tonight," Toronto coach Kevin O'Neill said. "He played a great game and did a great job of getting shots for the other guys." Activated from the injured list before the game, Carter made 10-of-24 shots and 6-of-6 free throws. He made two from the line with nine seconds remaining to extend the lead to three points. Eddie Jones had a chance to tie, but rookie Chris Bosh hounded him around the 3-point line and Jones never got off a legitimate shot. "I wasn't going to foul him," Bosh said. "I was going to keep my hands straight up." Jones and Miami coach Stan Van Gundy pleaded for a foul call, but none came. "Eddie's shot fakes the guy off his feet, you guys see that call every night in an NBA game," Van Gundy said. "Now, when it's us on offense, it's not the same call at the end of the game. "We had one of the referee supervisors the other night say to (Heat trainer) Ron Culp, 'Why so much complaining this year?' I'll tell you why - because people's jobs are on the line in this profession. That's why people are upset." Toronto and Miami combined for just 19 points in the final period, setting an NBA record for fewest in a fourth quarter. The Raptors were involved in the previous record for fourth-quarter futility, when they combined with Golden State for 20 on February 8. The Heat scored a season-low eight points in the final period, shooting a season-worst 11 percent (2-of-19). "We missed a lot of shots tonight," Jones said. "We were getting good looks but were unable to capitalize." Carter also had eight assists and five rebounds, showing no effects of the sprained ankle that sidelined him. Donyell Marshall added 24 points for Toronto, making 6-of-9 3-pointers. "I was happy to be back," Carter said. "I held up well. I'll get some treatment tonight and just see what happens. (Winning) turns things around for us. Everybody gets frustrated when you lose so many games. We have the talent. This should change things." The Raptors scored 37 points in the second quarter to erase a 30-15 deficit after one period. Carter had 15 in the quarter, when Toronto made all six of its 3-pointers and cut the deficit to 54-52 at halftime. "Any win now is a huge win," O'Neill said. "We are very much in the playoff hunt. I will feel much better about our hunt when we get Jalen Rose and Alvin Williams back, but at least we are starting in the right direction." The Raptors (26-34) moved into sixth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Miami (25-36) fell one-half game behind Boston for eighth place and the final postseason berth. Lamar Odom had 23 points and 14 rebounds for Miami, which has lost four in a row overall. It had a six-game winning streak against Toronto snapped.
