Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors without Vince Carter were a lot better than the New Jersey Nets without Vince Carter. In the first game between the teams who engineered the swap of the superstar, Morris Peterson scored a season-high 20 points to lead seven players in double figures as the Raptors cruised to a 110-99 victory over the Nets. On Friday afternoon, the Raptors traded Carter - the face of the franchise - to the Nets for three players and two first-round picks. The high-flying swingman was on the injured list with a strained Achilles tendon and was nowhere to be found at the Air Canada Centre. The Raptors also were without Alonzo Mourning, Aaron Williams and Eric Williams, the frontcourt players they acquired for Carter who have to sit out until the trade is finalized Monday by the NBA. "The trade will definitely help our perimeter guys, and I think it helps myself also," Peterson said. "I'm starting right now, and that's one thing I wanted to do, be a starter in this league. Both Eric and Aaron are known to be tough players and tough guys, and they're definitely going to help us, especially on the inside. I think we're last in the league in rebounding, so it's definitely going to help us." When asked how the new players would fit in, Raptors coach Sam Mitchell said, "I haven't had much time to think about it." Instead of relying on their superstar, Toronto spread around the offense as it shot 54 percent (37-of-69) from the field - making a season-high 14 3-pointers - and getting 54 points from its bench. The Raptors had 26 assists. "You definitely have to give our point guards some credit," Peterson said. "Those guys really got us going. Rafer (Alston) really did a great job distributing the ball." Reserve Lamond Murray scored a season-high 18 points, Jalen Rose added 17 and reserve Donyell Marshall 14 for the Raptors, who eclipsed 100 points for the first time in a win since November 24 against New York. "We had a lot of open looks today," Murray said. "We had a big fourth quarter where we ran some plays for guys and they were able to kick the ball back out and get us wide open looks." Marshall made a 3-pointer and Murray scored the next seven points of a 10-0 burst that gave the Raptors an 89-76 lead with 8:44 to go. A 3-pointer by Murray gave Toronto its largest lead at 96-80 with 6:52 remaining, and the Nets got no closer than the final margin. Richard Jefferson scored a season-high 38 points for the Nets, who had just eight available players - two taller than 6-9 - as guard Travis Best sat out with a strained groin. "Our defense tonight was horrible," Jefferson said. "Collectively they got hot and were all shooting the ball well. They got too much penetration. It was pretty easy for them tonight." Carter is eligible to join the Nets for Tuesday's game at Charlotte but may need more time to completely recover from his injury. He did a sneaker commercial with Jefferson two years ago and was a teammate of All-Star point guard Jason Kidd's on Team USA in 2003. "I'll talk to him on the plane," Kidd said. "We look for him not to be a savior but to be a big piece of the puzzle and help us get back to where we once were."
