Carter struggled in his first game against the team that traded him to New Jersey earlier this season, missing 17 of 25 shots while being outplayed by Jalen Rose in Toronto's 100-82 victory over the Nets on Tuesday night.

"He probably was a little tired from All-Star weekend. While he was running up and down the court throwing it off the backboard, I was laying on the beach drinking a fruity drink with an umbrella," Rose said of Carter. "So I probably gave myself an unfair advantage on that one."

Rose shot 12-for-15, scored 30 points and did a fine defensive job on Carter.

"It's disappointing, the way we played. I think we've played better," Carter said. "It's always a concern coming out of the All-Star break how your team makes its comeback after the break. It looked OK early, it got worse the rest of the night."

Rose led the Raptors on a 14-4 run early in the fourth quarter, and New Jersey never recovered. Chris Bosh had 16 points and 12 rebounds, and Milt Palacio added 13 points for Toronto, which had six players in double figures.

Carter scored 22 points, and Jason Kidd added 20 for the Nets.

In Charlotte, North Carolina, Michael Redd scored 39 points on 15-of-24 shooting in his return to Milwaukee's lineup.
