Toronto Raptors Team Report – December 10

=== Toronto Raptors Team Report – December 10 ===

(Sports Network) – Vince Carter collected 22 points, eight rebounds and seven
assists to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 100-93 win over the Cleveland
Cavaliers on Tuesday in a Central Division battle from Gund Arena.

The recently-acquired Donyell Marshall and Jalen Rose each contributed 20
points, with Marshall adding seven rebounds and Rose dishing out six assists
for the Raptors.

The squad ran its season-high winning streak to five games, and has not lost
since the duo of Marshall and Rose came over in a trade with the Chicago Bulls

Cleveland trailed 79-73 heading into to the fourth quarter, and got the
Raptors’ advantage down to four points at 85-81 on a pair of Zydrunas
Ilgauskas free throws midway through the frame.

But a 9-3 run by the Raptors, capped by a Chris Bosh dunk, opened up a 10-
point lead at 94-84 with less than four minutes to go, and the Cavs never got
closer than within five points the rest of the way.

The Raptors sport a road record of 5-6 and will close a brief two-game road
trip in Boston on Friday.
