Superstars Taking the Heat

Vince Carter had one of his better games in his former hometown Tuesday, hitting for 30 points, among them clutch three's that brought the Nets back from a 21-point deficit. But he passed off the final shot to an open Boki Nachbar rather than going for it himself. Chris Bosh, on the other hand, has had a terrible series, hitting a new low Tuesday with a flubbed dunk, goal tending charge and a missed foul shot with seconds remaining. Both have come in for criticism on the morning after, but Lawrence Frank defended Carter on Wednesday, saying "Vince made the exact right play."
