- Raptors 120, Nets 109: Vince Carter, welcomed with the usual boos, had 17 points and 10 assists, but Toronto took advantage of a weary Nets team and extended its division lead to 4 1/2 games. Bostjan Nachbar pitched in 26. New Jersey didn't struggle offensively -- even Eddie House had 19 -- but it allowed Toronto to shoot 59 percent from the floor. Not going to win too many games playing like that.
- Warriors 120, Knicks 101: They may have been tired after winning Tuesday in Los Angeles, but the Knicks will have plenty of time to rest during the All-Star break. Stop us if you've heard this before, but the Knicks trailed by 31 before making a token run. Nate Robinson had a season-high 22, most of those coming after the game was out of reach. In fact, most of the points scored Wednesday came after it was decided.
- Devils 5, Canadiens 2: Don't look now, but the Devils are four points behind the Sabres for the best record in the conference. Brian Rafalski loves the two-man advantage; he scored two goals on such power plays, helping his team solidify its status as the best area sports team this winter.
