NBA: Toronto 75, Cleveland 69

Jan. 7, 2004 at 9:45 PM   |   Comments

TORONTO, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Vince Carter shook off a brutal first three quarters Wednesday night and dominated down the stretch to lead Toronto past Cleveland, 75-69.

Carter had just three points through the first 36 minutes but took over in the final eight, scoring 11 of his 14 points.

The perennial All-Star came out of a time out in a tie game with 1:45 to play and hit a 17-foot jumper. After a miss by LeBron 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.

James, the NBA's leading rookie scorer, had 21 points.
