Focus Remains on Carter as Series Heads to New Jersey

Vince Carter believes that he's taking the right shots, but they're just not falling. Of course, there are several writers, fans, etc. that will disagree. At least part of VC's struggles in Game 2 could be attributed to a defensive switch the Raptors made in the second half. Doug Smith of the Toronto Star says keeping Carter from passing out of tight spots is critical to a Toronto win: "If he gets 35 with three assists; you've still got a chance to beat the Nets; if he gets 35 with nine assists, you can't win."
