Alvin Williams added 10 for the Raptors (1-3), who outscored the Cavs 32-12 in the third quarter to turn a two-point deficit into a 74-56 lead.

Ricky Davis led Cleveland with 13 points and Darius Miles had 12 - all in the first half. Zydrunas Ilgauskas also scored 12 for the Cavs (0-3), the only team without a victory in the preseason.

Carter made three great plays - two of them passes - in a 12-0 run that put the Raptors ahead 68-54 with 4:15 remaining in the third.

He started the surge by banking in a layup over Ilgauskas and Davis after switching the ball from his right to left hand.

Carter then threw a two-handed pass over his head to Antonio Davis for a dunk and an alley-oop to Morris Peterson.

Toronto made 13-of-20 shots in the third quarter. A 14-of-39 performance in the first half put the Raptors behind 44-42.

Miles, acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in a July for Andre Miller, played well for a half. He had two dunks, showed quick moves in the low post and made a nice shuffle pass in the paint to Carlos Boozer for a dunk.

Miles didn't do much of anything after halftime, and the Cavs quickly fell behind by double figures and couldn't recover.

Boozer, a 1999 Juneau-Douglas High School graduate and a rookie power forward for Cleveland, scored two points on 1-for-4 shooting in 14 minutes, with two rebounds and one steal.
